Style Advisor: Transitional Updates

If you’re asking yourself what on earth ‘transitional’ means when applied to clothing, let us enlighten you. Transitional, or trans-seasonal (if you really want to get down with the sartorial lingo), pieces are those items that get you through the in-between months of autumn and into winter. Aka, when it’s getting colder, but not quite freezing, or it’s threatening to rain, but it’s not yet torrential. From gilets to statement sweats and new-season tailoring, these pieces offer an added layer of warmth, without full-on stifling. Here’s our selection of trend-led transitional updates to ensure you’re appropriately dressed for autumn.

After a year plus spent in sweats, tailoring is having a moment. And this checked number from Vivienne Westwood is just the thing to take you into autumn. Keep things fresh by pairing with sneakers and lots of hardware. Sunny spell? Wear the jacket solo – or if you’re feeling bold, with a few (read: all) buttons undone.

Baby, it’s not-quite-yet cold outside. But thanks to a non-existent summer, the urge to wrap up is strong. Cue Dsquared2’s padded vest. High-shine, logo-adorned and complete with practical zippers, it’s made for layering over everything from tees to sweatshirts to jackets. Weather depending.

Dip your toe into autumn style by switching out your summer tee for a statement sweatshirt. This one from Represent makes the perfect layering piece. As the temperature cools, layer over t-shirts and under everything from trench coats to bombers. Just leave the hood out.
