As we edge into a new season we are forced to reconsider our everyday outfit choices as, let’s face it, wearing your favourite summer look just won’t cut it in our temperamental climate. It’s time to think cleverly about the transition from autumn to winter. There’s no need to spend unnecessarily on a whole new wardrobe when the bare essentials are already waiting in your wardrobe and ready to be restyled. Embrace the cold season as a chance to layer your summer go-tos in a winter appropriate way, meaning all those floaty summer dresses don’t have lie idle, gathering dust. Instead, up the ante and pair your summer slip with some of our favourite pieces for autumn/winter.
If you feel layering with a turtleneck is getting a little repetitive then update the look with this season’s sporty newcomer; the half-zip jumper. Not only will you be ahead of the game, but this micro trend promises to keep any chills away whilst sporting your beloved slip dress.
Ditch the denim and opt for a pair of wide leg trousers instead. This ultra layered look couldn’t be easier to achieve, simply add your favourite slip dress to a wide or velvet long leg to render your attire suitable for the approaching months. For added warmth, include a fitted knit.
You can still wear your slinky summer beloved by teaming it with a chunky knit this season. The oversized style will add to the casual feminine feel while working to counteract any unwanted winter chills. For extra effect (and warmth) don some sheer nylons.
Replace the most obvious pairing yet the most inevitable; the bomber jacket, with a padded 90’s puffer jacket. This look is by far the most wearable when it comes to layering your slip dress for the months ahead, so you have no excuse not to invest.
You can always count on a boyfriend shirt to dilute even the most provocative of looks, which is why adding the classic staple under or over your slip dress is the perfect layering piece that will keep you looking cosy and covered throughout any cold occasion.
