TRANSCEND THE SEASONS

Between-season dressing can be tricky; it’s hard to commit to new season trends when there’s a (small) chance of sunshine.  Take a minimalist approach by choosing light, key pieces in understated colours and natural fabrics. And go pared-back with styling – just perfect for layering.

FIRST FORAY

Drape a coat over your shoulders if it’s too warm to button-up.

BERET NICE

Top off your look with a jaunty beret. In luxurious wool, it warms things up, too.

FREE-FLOWING

Free-flowing and fluid layers are louche, luxe and feel so beautiful against the skin.

A new season may be beckoning, but it’s sometimes hard to let go of the last one, especially when the consensus is, it never really got underway.

However, during these transitional times it is possible to have the best of both worlds. Look ahead and start dressing for autumn, even while there’s an air of summer still present.

We took to London’s Southbank; a creative hub for those seeking pockets of culture and moments of peace and tranquillity on the river’s bank. It provides the perfect backdrop to our story, where we follow a girl through her weekend pursuits.

Each look captured has a minimalist approach, a prerequisite for successful between-season dressing.

Choose your colours wisely. A gentle colour palette is the perfect way to start; soft blush pink, luxurious cream, inky blue and woodland-inspired green all work against a blue or grey sky.

Each piece should hold its own merit, whether it’s a stand-out maxi skirt in frothy layers of midnight blue tulle, a simple silk shirt in a versatile shade, or understated leathers (just perfect for layering), each component of your look must be simple, but must have substance.

Styling-wise, keep things pared-back, but have fun with accessories; ankle and over-the-knee-socks have a Nineties feel, as do jaunty berets perched on the back of the head. Leather goods should be superior and in smooth leather.

Transcending the seasons is simple stuff.
