9 Styling Tips We've Stolen To Make All Your Summer Clothes Work For Autumn
The Debrief: Don't worry, you can still wear the millions of off-the-shoulder tops you bought
If you're anything like us, right around this time of year you're probably getting all excited about wearing Autumnal lip shades, but your bank account is looking abysmal thanks to your summer purcheases. I'm looking at you, statement yellow skirt which was 'an investment and will just make any summer outfit'. Well now you can quell those pangs of regret because, we stalked a few really cool people on Instagram to see how they're dealing with this annoying not-cold but not-hot weather.
We loooove this casual look. Team a skirt with a jumper and ankle boots for that time when it’s just getting a little chilly.
If you didn’t buy a pair of dungarees this summer, do you even fashion? Don a snuggly jumper underneath your dungarees to rock them in the cold weather.
You’ve probably got a lot of white off-the-shoulders tops because they were the BIG NEW THING this summer. Make them look less Brigitte Bardot and more Beth Ditto by following Shope’s lead and throwing a black leather jacket over the top (fake leather, please).
Literally just wear all of the clothes you own on top of each other. Then you’re doing the really trendy thing called ‘layering’. That’s how it works, right?
It’s hat season! While the thought of one might strike fear into your heart, follow this lead and go for a cool retro cap.
Oversized jumper dresses are perfect for Autumn evenings where you’re kind of sure you’re going to spend a lot of time outside in a queue/smokingarea/holding your friend’s hair back. Add some tights if it’s a little nippy out.
I hope you’ve kept last year’s midi coat, because they’re perfect to wear over floaty summer shirts. Go for autumnal colours like camel, wine, or dark grey to bring an outfit into this season.
This. Picture. Is. Goals. Especially the oversized scarf. Get one in an autumnal print to spice up a plain outfit and also look Instagram cool.
Let’s be real, a slip dress isn’t going to cut it when the sun fucks off, so wear some long sleeves and a high neck underneath.
