We plan our summer wardrobes and our autumn wardrobes, but we never really think much about what to wear in-between! Some days you can still feel the remnants of the summer sun and on others you're reaching for jackets and knitwear. We're sharing our guide on what your transitional wardrobe needs. It's nothing complicated - just hard-working wardrobe essentials that you will wear season after season.
A White Shirt
A classic white shirt is a wardrobe-must. Whether you opt for a simple shirt or one complete with extra detailing, like broderie anglaise, a white shirt can be worn alone or layered up on cooler days.
An Easy Layering Piece
September temperatures can be unpredictable, so something that you can layer up and wear solo is a worthwhile investment. A sleeveless knit is endlessly wearable and they're back again this season. Slip on over a shirt, a thin roll neck or even a dress on days where you want an extra bit of warmth without reaching for a jacket. Thin roll necks are also so handy at this time of year. They add warmth without bullk, so you can save your chunkier knits for the winter months. Opt for a neutral colour for an easy wardrobe building block that will tie in with what you already own.

A Knitted Dress
Knitted dresses offer great versatility at this time of year and will continue to be useful as the temperature drops. Outside of looking effortless and chic, they're comfortable and cosy, working equally well with tights and boots, and, on warmer days, with bare legs and trainers.

Simple jewellery is the perfect accessory to a minimalist outfit. Look for everyday classic hoops or necklaces that you can layer to elevate your look.

Investing in some cosy but lightweight outerwear is a sensible decision at this time of year. A quilted jacket like this one from ICHI will take you into the winter months too. It's lightly padded for added warmth and the hood will keep you dry during the September showers. We love the pockets: deep enough to thrust your hands into when the temperature starts to drop.
