From Summer to Autumn

As much as we’d love this sunshine to last, investing in transitional pieces is a great way to make your wardrobe staples endure all seasons. For a cosy but classic outfit, pair this dress with an oversized jumper, heeled boots and a simple hat for a look that will keep you warmer in the autumn and winter. Wear loose for an oversized and simple fit or cinch the waist with a printed belt for extra detailing and a flattering silhouette.
