I love this time of year. There's just something about a sunny September morning with the perfect amount of crispness in the air.
However, I'm not ready to fully retire my summer wardrobe just yet. While it's exciting to see all of the chunky knits and autumnal shades land on the shelves, and get inspired for the textures and colours of the season to come. I'm also excited to experiment with just how much longer I can make my summer pieces work, for optimum transitional dressing.
If you're not quite ready to hang your denim skirt up for the season either, then today i'm sharing with you how I've styled mine for the cooler weather.
Denim skirts were everywhere this summer, a nod to early 00's style. But back and more grown up and sophisticated than ever before. And it's no surprise why, as styled with a pretty top or graphic tee and sliders they made the perfect outfit on a warm summers day. But unless you're partial to a dose of frostbite on your toes, then as we move into chillier days that look just wont fly.
Distressed light blue denim, can look particularly fresh and summery. If your summer denim purchase was in black, then it will more easily slot into your Autumn wardrobe. However, it can be done with light blue denim too. It's all in the accessories to achieve an autumnal feel.
A jumper is the first, and most obvious, step to achieve the look. This navy sweater from Mango is the perfect lightweight knit for the weather right now and the scattered silver star embroidery adds interest to an otherwise plain piece. I've resisted for long enough, but I'm finally bringing my boots out of hiding. Velvet is the ultimate Autumn texture, so continuing the navy theme I'm wearing some navy blue velvet sock boots. To keep the look dark, i'm sticking with black accessories, opting for this black leather belt with an antique gold buckle.
