Get inspired by Emma Roberts' transitional outfit
The rosé-filled days of summer are behind us and autumn temperatures are still in limbo, and you know what that means? Our sartorial thoughts turn to the conundrum of ‘transitional dressing’.
Often this means putting on a jumper, wrapping up in a huge blanket scarf and digging out last year’s wooly tights. But sometimes this just won’t do.
The key is to have an arsenal of items in your wardrobe that will layer easily, keep you warm (or cool you off) and can be dressed up or down.
Here to give us a demonstration is Emma Roberts. The actress took to Instagram to showcase a pale blue jumper from Elizabeth And James, which I have promptly fallen in love with.
Made of merino wool and with elbow-length sleeves, it’s preppy but with added personality thanks to a teeny bird embroidery. It’s the time of top that’ll keep you toasty on chilly days without giving off dead-of-winter vibes. Pair it with everything from flared jeans and mules for a relaxed look or a pencil skirt for something a little more office-ready.
Emma excellently teamed hers with cropped black trousers, aka: the ideal way to show some ankle as it gets colder. The cat-eye sunglasses bring an element of the retro and these frames are particularly chic considering they’re the result of Garrett Leight’s collaboration with Clare V.
On the footwear front, Emma kept it simple in Chanel’s black and white patent leather flats. Our summery sandals are well and truly packed away (boo) so ballet pumps are the perfect compromise before buying snug boots later in the year.
