Chilly mornings, warm sunny afternoons, strong breezes… At this time of year we know autumn is creeping in but we’re still feeling those summer vibes and want to make the most of the while we can! Here are a few pieces we’re loving and want to wear as summer winds down (along with some tips to help ease the seasonal transition).
Every Body Sunset Skirt Wildflower Field Natural, AUD $135.00 from Made590 (size XXS-3X/8-22) (left), Mistle Wrap Dress, $179.00 from Ruby & Rain (size XXS-XXXL/14-28) (centre), Juno Floral Pant, $99.99 from City Chic (size XXS-XXL/12-24) (right).
Nothing says summer quite like florals – keep them light and bright to hold on to that warm weather vibe! When it starts getting cooler you can add denim jackets and cosy knits to hang on to those summer feels a little longer.
Atmos&Here Curvy Salem Tie Neck Top, AUD $57.48 from The Iconic (size 18-26) (left), Isla-Maree White Botanical Wrap Dress, $99.00 from Isla-Maree (size S-XL/12-24) (centre), Organic Swing Tee, $59.95 from Taking Shape (size XXS-XL/12-24) (right).
Whether it’s a simple white tee or a print with a white background, white (and other light shades) are something we wear a lot more of in summer. It pairs really well with a casual denim or dressed up with bright or dark colours, so this is a wardrobe staple you’ll be able to wear a lot.
Kris Raglan Sleeve Dress, $160.00 from House of Boom (size 1-4/16-30) (left), Sage Top, $149.00 from Ruby & Rain (size XXS-XXXL/14-28) (centre), Isla-Maree Juney Dress, $99.00 from Isla-Maree (size S-XL/12-24) (right).
It’s not hard to figure out why blue is such a summer favourite – it makes us think of swimming pools and oceans and all things cool. Layer it up with lighter colours or go for something darker as the weather cools down, or try a tonal look – one colour in different shades.
Sara Button Thru Skirt, $79.99 from EziBuy (size 14-26) (left), Magnetic Jacket, $149.99 from City Chic (size XXS-XXL/12-24) (centre), Tiare Skirt, $160.00 from House of Boom (size 0-4/14-30) (right).
As Kiwis we tend to wear a lot of black (especially during the cooler months), so if you love a pop of colour why not embrace it and bring those bright summer colours to your everyday wardrobe?
Every Body Ripley Reversible Dress Borrowed Wattle, AUD $145.00 from Made590 (size XS-4X/8-24) (left), Getaway Stripe Dress, $129.95 from Taking Shape (size XXS-XL/12-24) (centre), by Samantha Melbourne Camellia Knee Length Wrap Dress, $245.00 from Two Lippy Ladies (size 8-22) (right).
If you’ve got a favourite summer frock or skirt and you’re not ready to give it up as the weather cools down that’s okay. Transition into cooler weather by adding stockings and ankle boots, a scarf, gloves and a jacket. There’s no reason you can’t wear your summer faves all year round, styled to suit the weather!
