Transitioning between the season with these tips
A late summer heat wave may have been welcomed after a drizzly August, but if you’ve already packed away your warm weather clothes you might be left feeling stressed out about your style. The transition from summer to autumn can be challenging, as it’s not yet time to fully wrap up under knitwear and a huge coat, yet we’re often not brave enough to venture out without a jacket either. If you want to stay on trend with the changing seasons, follow these top styling tips.
Pairing jumpers with a maxi dress
Karim London stocks a fantastic women’s Islamic clothing UK range filled with stunning short-sleeved and full-length dresses which look stunning during the summer. But as the temperature drops, there’s no need to relegate your beautiful garments to the back of the wardrobe. Instead, pair a full-length skirt with knitwear such as a chunky jumper or a cardigan.
With the promise of crunchy leaves on the ground, it’s time to put away your sandals and switch them for ankle or knee length boots. If it’s a colder day, you might even opt for a pair of woolly tights to wear beneath a showstopper of a dress. Or if you’ve chosen a trouser ensemble, then wear your boots over the top for on point style.
Cotton, silk and chiffon might be synonymous with summer, but as we move into autumn, it’s important to swap some of your layers out for a stronger fabric to retain your body heat. If you’re wearing lightweight trousers beneath your kaftan or abaya, you might switch to a thicker material such as cord for a more seasonal feel.
Layer with knitwear
So, we’ve already covered wearing a jumper over your dress, but how about wearing one underneath it? Why not continue showing off the elegance of your women’s Islamic clothing UK dress whilst staying comfortable with a knitted jumper beneath? Make sure that your choice of knitwear is fitted so it doesn’t alter the shape of your dress to make it look bulky. A thin knit which is figure-hugging would be the best option here.
Choosing your coat
It’s not yet time to don a duffle, but equally you’ll need more than a lightweight cardie before you head out in September or October. A denim blazer is a versatile addition to any collection, allowing you to create an appealing casual smart look. If you prefer a little more protection from the elements, then a trench coat is ideal. Choose a sheer fabric to show off your summer clothing beneath. If you’re creating a capsule wardrobe made up of classic items whilst exploring the latest trends, then the change in seasons is a great opportunity to mix and match to your heart’s content.
