There are so many great things about autumn: the golden hour lighting, the technicolour changing leaves, the refreshing bite in the air. But what’s not so great is when it creeps in early, whilst summer is still in full swing. Frosty mornings have no place the week after a heatwave, and this level of rainfall is simply not how we had our August figured out.
Right now we’re in that tricky, transitional time of year. Yes, it’s still summer - but it’s unpredictable at best, meaning we can’t rely on our bare legs to get by. Chilly mornings that develop into sweltering afternoons make getting dressed for work a total headache, whilst late night dinners with sandals sans jacket can result in a pretty uncomfortable journey home if the rain sets in. It's too mild for coats and jumpers, yet scant summery staples just can’t cut it if the weather takes an unexpected turn. So what then?
It’s all about choosing your summer styles carefully, and introducing some new season pieces that can work now and later. Make cropped trousers in seasonal shades your accomplice on in-between days, and choose dresses that offer longer sleeves and maxi lengths that will have your back, whatever the weather.
To help make getting dressed in the mornings a little easier, we’ve selected a few choices womenswear pieces from Reiss that get it right every time, whatever your day has in store.
