autumn layering

How to restyle your wardrobe with style and function for the season’s hottest trend.

Why layer?

Autumn is a mixed bag. Darker mornings and nights equals colder starts and finishes. And those bright autumn days can leave us too hot in coats and hats, and cold when the sun disappears.

How do I do it?

With thin, soft, non-bulky layers that complement each other. Autumn layering is thinking about fashion in its most practical sense, a revolving turntable of clothes that can be layered when you need the extra warmth, and peeled back when you’re feeling the heat.

What do I need?

It all depends on how you like to dress. Take a look at your wardrobe, what you already have, summer staples that can help you transition into autumn and winter, and what you might need to add to your autumn wardrobe to make the clothes you already have work in a new way.

Ultimate comfort underwear.

First things first, a Stylish, comfortable, soft, and with a barely-there feel to it – our ultimate comfort underwear is a must-have base garment for your layering looks.

Bodysuit.

A dreamy bodysuit to work with you as you move through the day and evening. Something to wear as an undergarment, but also to work as a chic slim top under a wooly cardigan or tucked into skirts, trousers, and sweatpants. Opt for seamfree, sheer, or our ribbed version for a thicker layer.

Vest.

To throw on over a bodysuit, and under (or over) t-shirts. Our vests are prized for their perfect fit and ultimate comfort.

Hoody. We love seeing hoodies tucked into jeans, or layered under a coat (either classic styles or sportier jackets). Our new black and grey sweats are the little black sweats of hoodies, promising to match with any coat, jacket, or any other garments you want to pair them with. Our different colourways add a pop of attitude to the traditional autumn colour palette.

Shorts.

Slimline shorts, like our biker style shorts, are ideal for having underneath sweat pants as an extra layer, adding a flash of colour and giving you the option to tradition from cold outside to warm inside with ease.

Pac-a-mac.

This lightweight mac jacket has been on our most loved watch list for a while. Thin, silky, and can be folded quickly and easily into a bag with clip handles.
