I still refuse to accept Autumn, I’m clinging on to the end of Summer with all my might and so this week I’ve made a wish list of my transitional style favourites. Transitional, not Summer, not Autumn, transitional. It’s the fashion version of seasonal denial.
I wear ankle boots all year round because if it’s sunny and warm they look great with beat up denim shorts and if not they work with skinny ripped jeans or worn out boyfriend jeans. (Now let’s talk about ripped jeans for a minute, the ones with pre-applied clean rips just in the knees are not acceptable. Put some time and effort in people, wear out your own jeans! It looks so much better because it happened naturally, just wear them all the time that’ll do it, or give them to me and I’ll wear them to the garage, they’ll soon be ripped to shreds). Back to the matter in hand: my transitional style favourites are made up of simple tomboy elements, a mix of vintage and designer. A clean effortless outfit that can easily be layered up when it does get colder or stripped back if warmer weather does by some miracle re-appear.
Transitional style is great, there’s not so much bulk from coats and scarves that you look like the Michelin man but there’s a little bit of layering to add some interest. Here are my favourites, simple natural fabrics with a pop of colour and a mixture of textures. Maybe this will inspire you to join me in a little fashion led seasonal denial too…
