We're at that funny time of year again, aren't we? Though we dropped straight into winter after a long, lingering summer, the days are varying between full winter chill and warmer blue skied moments. As a summer girl at heart, adapting to the new season (especially so quickly) I've been searching to find ways to carry my favourite summer items into the colder season. It's the best way to ease yourself in, IMO.
Let us not forget that, although overcast, every other day is bright and mild. So I'm all about finding outfits that don't look and feel too heavy, but also provide enough coverage should the weather take a turn for the worse. I want these outfits to carry me through to late winter, too. So we need effortlessly cool looks that just work. This is why I've edited my recent saved Instagram posts to show you a selection of looks I'll be re-creating from now—from jumper dresses with chunky boots to knitwear with stand-out skirts, these six cool outfits will never fail you. Scroll on to see them.
Style Notes: Knits have already made their way back into wardrobes, and Francesca Saffari (pictured) keeps hers luxe by mixing the textured style with a silky slip. The Adidas x Wales Bonner retro trainers (a great find on eBay) give the look that cool-girl twist.
Style Notes: If you're on the fence about pinstripe trousers feeling "cool" rather than corporate, I predict you'll change your mind now you've seen Kim Turkington wearing them. Going full cosy and down-to-earth with a chunky cardigan and trainers, this is total perfection.
Style Notes: In my option, absolutely everyone should own a striped shirt. Why? Because it'll be one of the most hard working items you wear across all seasons. Make like Aniyah Morinia (pictured) and wear with cargo trousers, a cap and trainers for an off-duty look.
Styles Notes: Often, the coolest outfits of all are the most simple. To prove my theory, just take a look at Marianne Smyth, who has styled a black bandeau with trusty baggy jeans and heels. If it ain't broke…
I'm the owner of six knitted dresses (last time I counted) and I can't rave about them enough. They're so easy to throw on no matter the weather, and now I want a greige style to add to my collection after seeing how Isabelle has styled hers.
