If you’ve been living in your easy, breezy, soft tailoring staples all summer – think button-up shirts, slouchy linen blazers, and relaxed, wide-leg pants – there’s no need to pack them away in favour of your full winter wardrobe just yet. Instead, keep them working hard during the transitional months by pairing them with slightly heavier, warmer pieces. Here are three ways how.
1. Wear a button-down shirt as a shacket
A button-down shirt in a classic summer fabric such as cotton or linen offers a little extra coverage when the warm weather starts to fade. Pair yours over anything from a t-shirt and jeans or a slip dress for effortless appeal.
2. Layer your lightweight blazer with a soft turtleneck
During the summer, lightweight blazers are often paired with crewneck t-shirts or crop tops. For the cooler months? Exude timeless sophistication by layering yours over a turtleneck or sweater in soft wool or cashmere.
3. Pair your slouchy slacks with chunky boots
When it comes to shoes to pair with your slouchy, lightweight slacks, switch out your chunky summer sandals or slides for even chunkier black ankle boots. The footwear’s heavy appeal works well at balancing out the lightness of your trousers.
