Transitional Sweater Style Guide

Ah, the joys of the mid-season game. Things get tricky temperature-wise. It's too cool for your high-summer pieces and too balmy for significant head-to-toe coverage. You're never quite...comfortable. Fret not: with a little inspiration in tow, the period between mid-August and mid-September is a rare style opportunity...

1.  A Slouchy Sweater Tucked-In
This trick is the equivalent of summer's loosely tucked-in t-shirt. Just as nonchalant, but warmer. Try with a longer, light to mid-weight sweater to ensure a bit of drape.

2. The Classic Shirt-and-Sweater
This combo never fails to look polished and the right side of preppy. Style with contemporary accessories and opt for an oversized jumper for an extra dose of cool, or to avoid looking twee.

3. Wrap It Up
You already know this - a scarf makes a big difference. To avoid wearing a jacket at all costs, wrap your neck in something soft for optimal warmth. A scarf of course, or even a lightweight sweater you can then layer at a later stage.

4. Full-On Layering
The chilliest mid-season days means it's really time to cover up. The good news is that you can layer to you heart's content - Ts, shirts, sweaters - anything goes. We love a long overcoat to top it all off.

As anything goes during this mellow yet fickle weather period, it paves the way for some of your most eclectic, eye-catching outfits. As long as you're comfortable.
