Transitional dresses that’ll take you from summer to winter

It’s that “transitional” time of the year, the in-between season when you will ease your way to winter with pieces that lend themselves to layering and usher in a colder mood in the process. Start with a new dress – mini or maxi, floral or knitted – and prepare to skip through Autumn, energised by street style inspiration.

Spot check


Gingham has shaken off its schoolgirl connotations: the sophisticated print is now seen paired with stand-out gold jewellery and a mannish trench coat, or a cool denim.

Wrap dress

Knitted dresses are enjoying their moment in the sun – or rain, for that matter. Style with a flat pair of loafers and a leather biker, then switch to a chunky boot once the temperature begins to drop.

Great lengths

Don’t the season’s turbo trainers look elegant when paired with a pavement-skimming maxi dress?

Red dress

How to take your florals this winter? Ruffled, quite literally – the more off-balance, the better.

Floral mini

Power into this new leggy mood with a vintage-hued mini dress. Style now with knee-high boots and a cinched leather shirt to toughen up the look.
