A gal's guide to Transitional Trends

As much as I wish Summer didn’t have to end, the Pumpkin Spiced Lattes have arrived which means Autumn is en route. And let’s be realistic, it’s been raining for the last two weeks anyway. So I’ve picked out my fave transitional pieces to get you wardrobe ready for fall…

FRILL HEM JEANS | CHOKER TIE NECKLACE | SEQUIN & PRINT DRESS | BLACK CHELSEA BOOTS | FRILL HEM PAISLEY DRESS | HALO NECKLACE | POMPOM KHAKI SHIRT | LACE COLLAR SHIRT

I’m all about that frill hem; jeans, dresses, shirts… I want it on errrrrrrr’thing. Jeans have been having a bit of a moment for the past few seasons, with updates from frayed hems to embellishment, and this latest look is so up my street. Can someone just grab me some Gucci loafers to go with por favor?

Trends are all well and good (& fabulous, obvs) but you can’t beat wardrobe staples that will last year after year. And what better staple than a classic pair of Chelsea Boots that only get better with age. Black and Oxblood are classic autumnal shades and there’s abso loads of choice on ASOS to suit your budget so get browsing.

Obviously I’m not quite ready to let Summer go, so pompoms had to be included in some shape or form. The Khaki button up shirt with colourful tassels and coin detailing is calling out to my wardrobe, though I’ll be trading the shorts for distressed denim jeans.

Shift dresses are beyond easy to wear and the perfect ‘I’m far too tired for this’ grab and go look in the morning (much needed if you love sleep as much as I do). Just throw on a pair of tights when it’s chilly and ta-da, transitional AF.

For accessories, I’m going simple and chic, tying in gold and burgundy shades. Aldo is my go-to at the moment when it comes to accessories and thankfully, everything is pretty affordable, though you could totally DIY the choker!

What are your autumn must haves? Picked up a PSL from Starbucks yet?

  1. I wish I liked SPL’s I really do, but I just can’t. I’m the same with the Christmassy coffees too. I want to love them, but they’re just too sweet for me. I love everything you’ve picked out here, in particular the Chelsea boots. I picked up two pairs from Primark last week, that were only £7 each. I thought they were a complete bargain & I can’t wait to wear them 🙂

  2. […] a slip and slide for the fools still wearing heels aka me. But regardless, it’s time to start transitioning that wardrobe (hopefully with these fab key pieces) and getting ready for cosy knits and layers (aaaaalllll the layers)… EMBROIDERED SHIRT […]

A faux-ginger, gin drinking, digital marketing gal with a thing for food styling. That was basically my old Tinder bio... Living in Leeds, I'm forever heading out for dinner, buying too many clothes, spending 50% of my money on ubers and, as of now, putting my stamp on my new apartment!
