layer player

We’ve never known a summer like it, but we live in Britain so our thoughts are never too far away from the impending autumn and winter. Even though we all want to deny it’s happening, the days are slowly getting shorter, and before we know it we’ll be reaching for our winter coats again. None of us wants that, so let’s put that day off for as long as possible by some clever transitional styling. Here’s how to layer like a player:

Oversized Sweatshirts

If you want to brave bare legs but not bare arms, then the oversized sweatshirt is for you. Look chic and sleek in a sweatshirt dress and trainers for the daytime. Or go for a Kardashian-inspired look with an oversized sweatshirt, cycling shorts and barely-there heels.

Playsuits might not be your first choice for transitional dressing, but a loungewear style or unitard can be a great option for when it starts to get a bit colder. Wear a zip-up style with a sports bra and layered necklaces for an up to date, on-trend look.

Bodysuits are the ideal base layer for any transitional outfit. Layer with a cropped hoodie and joggers and this will be your #OOTD every day. Give this look a more dressed up vibe by swapping the cropped sweatshirt for a leather jacket.

Long Sleeved Dresses

Wanna look hot while staying warm? Long sleeved dresses are a great option. Bodycon is the coolest way to rock this trend this season, and nudes or pastels will see you through the rest of summer, into autumn, and beyond. The best part is this style looks great under a long coat.

missguided layer jackets

The most important layer of any transitional outfit, nailing your outerwear is key. Go for a zip-up style so you’re ready for any weather eventuality. Full tracksuits have reappeared this year in a major way, and so wearing your cropped zip-through top with matching joggers will give you all the style points.
