With autumn peeking gingerly over the horizon, I'm sure I'm not the only one anticipating the arrival of a new season. Whilst it doesn't feel like we've had that much of a summer, I'm still hoping that we've got at least a few weeks of sunshine left yet, and as such have been seeking out those transitional treasures which appear in such abundance on the high street at this time of the year. With an eye on autumn but still holding on to the spirit of summer, the new season offerings from Warehouse are firmly fixed on my radar:
Daisy Flippy Dress, £49/Clean Belted Trench Coat, £89/Painted Floral Culotte, £29/Tie Waist Shirt Dress, £35/Boxy Popper Detail Jumper, £35/Side Split Cropped Trousers, £45/Dipped Hem Top, £32/Leather Textured Shoulder Bag, £28/Velvet Slip On Trainers, £55, all Warehouse
Regular readers will know that I'm a huge fan of a failsafe floral, and this pretty print is perfect for the inbetweeny weather, as well as being ideal for teaming with opaque tights when winter arrives. Dodging showers is something which is synonymous with the Great British climate, and as such this trench coat is another staple which would become indispensable as autumn approaches. Keeping one foot firmly in the 'it's still summer!' camp, these stunning printed culottes- which may or may not have already made their way into my shopping basket...
As far as style essentials go, you'd be hard pushed to go wrong with a simple shirt dress, and this understated design is a real wardrobe hero if ever I saw one- and great for layering over trousers too. Another transitional treasure comes in the shape of this knit- the sort of basic which is a boon to any wardrobe. Regular readers will know that I'm something of a culotte convert, and this black pair are a great investment purchase- great for dressing up or down as well as being a real classic option too.
Tapping into a fresh colour palette when autumn arrives is always something to look forward to, and this vibrant blouse is a great option for the transitional season, especially if you're keen to pep up some of your winter staples with a bit of brightness. As far as accessories go, it's hard to go wrong with a cross body bag, and this grey design is a great all purpose option for layering over coats and jackets. Finally, keeping things co-ordinated, these velvet skate shoes- adding a little touch of luxury to an everyday staple.
