The Transitional Wardrobe

September is here, but it seems like only yesterday we were shopping for summer dresses and sandals. Whilst some days are grey and overcast, the sun is still managing to peek through occasionally – meaning we’re struggling with what to wear…

Enter the transitional wardrobe: pieces you can wear now in the autumn, but will see you through the warmer months, too. They’re cult staples that can easily be layered for winter, or stripped back from summer – take a look at what’s in our wishlist below…

  1. A Trench

    A Trench

    Every on-trend wardrobe needs a lightweight trench coat. They’re the easiest form of outerwear to style, looking effortlessly luxe thrown on over jeans, or appropriately dressy on top of formal-wear. They’re the perfect transitional piece; for cooler days, wear with a fine-knit sweater and jeans, or for sunny spells, atop a little slip dress.

  2. A White Shirt

    A White Shirt

    Here at The Hut, we firmly believe a good-quality white shirt is an investment piece – plus, they’re perfect for each and every season. Wear with loose fitting culottes or juxtapose against cut-off denims in summer, or layer under a cashmere sweater in the winter or autumn.

  3. A Long Sleeve Dress

    A Long Sleeve Dress

    The addition of a long sleeve makes any dress instantly more versatile. Keep the silhouette floaty and ethereal for summertime, or pick more tailored styles for work or wintertime; pair with gladiator sandals and bare legs, or tights and booties – the choice is yours!

  4. A Pair of Cropped Trousers

    A Pair of Cropped Trousers

    Cropped trousers are a youthful alternative to a full length lined pair, and ideal for autumnal wardrobes. In the summer, wear a silk cami up top with stacks of gold jewellery, and in the winter, we like to pop a cropped angora jumper on instead.

  5. A Pair of Leather Loafers

    A Pair of Leather Loafers

    Not as heavy-duty as a boot or as lightweight as a ballet flat, leather loafers will withstand the elements whilst looking undeniably chic. Whether you style them with jeans and a simple tee or structured skirts and dresses, they’ll keep your outfit on-trend and season ready.
