On Trend: Transitional Updates

On Trend: 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 which get you through the in-between months of autumn and into winter. When it’s getting colder, but not quite freezing, or it’s threatening to rain, but it’s not yet torrential. From lightweight jackets and rain coats to new-season shirting, these pieces are practical but stylish. Here’s our selection of trend-led transitional updates to ensure you’re appropriately dressed for autumn.

MODERN SHIRTING

Dip your toe into autumn style by switching out your summer t-shirt for a short-sleeve shirt. This one from Valentino makes the perfect layering piece. As the temperature cools, layer under or over knits, jackets and t-shirts. Sunny spell? Wear it solo - or if you're feeling bold, with a few (read: all) buttons undone. 

THE 2020 BOMBER

Baby, it’s not-quite-yet cold outside. We’ve had a warm early autumn, but with Halloween and the festive season on the horizon, the urge to wrap up is strong. Cue Gucci's lightweight bomber. Oversized and made from recycled, organic, bio-based and sustainably sourced materials, it's as good for your wardrobe as it is the environment. Throw on the matching 'Off The Grid' Nylon Bucket hat, for those inevitably rainy days. 

THE RAIN COAT

Don't worry, we don't mean the kind you wore as a child. Vetements’ 'All Over Logo' long-line does exactly what it says on the tin. Statement-making and classic in equal measure, pair the monochrome mac with easy tees and the brand's matching 'All Over Logo' Crew Neck Jumper on cooler days. For extra protection from the elements, throw on a low-key, black baseball cap. Pitching not necessary.
