FIVE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR WARDROBE RIGHT NOW

Five ways to update your wardrobe right now

Key looks that will take you into autumn

In-between season dressing is a minefield – it’s getting too cold for those staples that got us through summer but we’re not yet ready for that full on transition to autumn. Here’s five key pieces that you can wear now and still work perfectly when the nights are drawing in…

Green goddess

We love this look from Luisa Cerano, which will take you into autumn and beyond. It’s still light and fresh but nodding towards the colder months with deep shades of green. Wear with a cami on warmer days, but equally you can wear this into the depths of winter with a ribbed polo underneath.

Casual lux

The blazer is given a modern laid-back lux feel with super-soft fabrics that drape elegantly. Go for cream or white and team a simple tee underneath for a style that is both casual and chic.

Shorts for autumn?

It can be done! We love these Bottega Veneta textured leather shorts  Hitting just above the knee, these are a perfect transitional piece. Show off tanned summer legs or wear with tights when days get decidedly chilly.

Wear the trousers

We’re so bored of our WFH jeans and joggers (no one can see below the waste in a Zoom meeting, after all). But we’re embracing proper grown-up trousers as we return to the office. This look means business but the knitted top tones it down and keeps it on trend.

Autumn florals

Switch up your floral summer maxi for a long-sleeved floral tunic. This is a gorgeously versatile look that will take you from the office to a lunch date.
