We’re into that funny time of year when it’s not quite warm and it’s not quite time to layer up for winter. (Autumn. That’ll be it.) And although we love this season for the leaves (the leaves!), transitional dressing can be difficult. But let’s look at the positives: It’s the perfect temperature for wearing a blazer without a coat over it, you can still wear a dress with chunky boots and no tights, and if you go out for the evening you can get away with a slinky outfit (and maybe a leather jacket) without the risk of freezing.
Luckily, Nasty Gal has just launched a new drop of transitional pieces, and it’s as if the brand knew we were in need of inspiration. There’s a healthy dose of cosy autumn staples, including some perfect knit dresses, relaxed tailored suits and a grey coat just begging to be taken on all those crisp walks. But the drop also nods to the upcoming festivities, with a great selection of going-out outfits, including understated slip dresses and nice tops to pair with jeans. Wear them now for fun catch-ups, and come December, you’ll have a wardrobe full of partywear.
We’ve edited the new collection down to 25 of our favourite pieces below. Most of them are classic styles that you’ll want to wear again and again. They sit just enough to the right of trend-led to feel modern now, but they also carry over easily into future seasons. And there’s a couple of bright, fun pieces (because what’s fashion without a little fun?) like the chequerboard knit that reminds us of that Kendall Jenner jumper and a retro printed co-ord so good we’re just desperate to find a place to wear it.
So whether your brain is still wrapping itself around autumn or you can already feel yourself getting hyped for party season, you know what to do. (Keep scrolling!)
