Transforming your Summer wardrobe to Autumn

I have been quiet on here as I have just return from two weeks with my bestie in her apartment in Spain. We had a lovely break enjoyed some warm sunshine, nice walks, and great food. Is summer completely over now?  or will we have some warm sunny days like we have been enjoying this week. The news tells me that this is the first week of autumn. This blog is about transforming you summer wardrobe to autumn.

The changing of the seasons.

I love my summer wardrobe and are not ready to put it away yet. Summer makes me think of  warm weather, socialising outside and warm summer evenings. Longer days, light evenings inspire me to do more and make the most of the time. However, it is also nice to have the seasons and each season has its own good points.

The best bit about the Autumn for me is how nature changes. The autumn leaves on the trees and the colours that shine through. I always take my inspiration for colour combinations from nature. If it works in nature it will work with your wardrobe.

So yes, we can still wear some of our summer clothes in the autumn, but we just wear them a different way. Take your favourite summer dress that you have been wearing with bare legs and sandals or trainers. For now, you could wear either a camisole underneath or a long-sleeved t/shirt and as we get into winter you could wear a roll neck jumper. This will add warmth. Going forward as it gets colder you can add some warm tights and ankle or knee-high boots.

It is all about layering.

If you prefer you can add your warmth on top and wear a denim jacket over your dress and as it gets colder a leather biker jacket. This pink denim jacket goes perfectly over this green floral dress and comes from Next and retails at £60.00 and comes in blue.

Coatigans are also another way to add warmth without wearing a coat. I found this Hooded Coatigan in Next and it comes in this beautiful camel and black. It retails at £48.00. Here you can see the model is wearing this over white jeans and a lightweight jumper.

The great thing about layering is that you can easily take off a layer if the sun comes out.

One thing that I like to do is get value for money with my clothes and going forward I have decided to buy less clothes but better quality. This way I will get more wear out of them and wear them for longer. This means I will have less clothes in my wardrobe making it easier to put my outfits together. It also helps landfill and the throwaway fashion that ends up there.

Recycling your clothes.

It is important to recycle what you no longer wear as one person’s trash is another person’s gem. If you buy something and then find it no longer suits you pass it on, sell it, give it to a friend, or take to a charity shop and let someone else enjoy your purchase.
