It's a very awkward time of year, summer is on its way out but it's not quite autumn. Deciding what to wear on a daily basis is becoming a tricky business. I know too well the pain of stepping out to bright sunshine in a cute as a button sundress and strappy sandals only to be greeted with freezing winds and the sound of rolling thunder. Then there's the problem of being over prepared. One too many layers and you end up sitting in a pool of your own sweat. Not a good look.
So here are a few helpful outfit ideas that will help you get through this awkward period without losing your cool.
*Taibo Bacar skirt available at Sapelle. Ngu messenger bag available at Bot i Lam. All other items can be purchased from brands' website.
Midi skirts are brilliant trans-seasonal pieces and this one from Taibo Bacar is just gorgeous. Team your midi with a chunky cable knit and peep toe booties for a cool laid back look. Scarves are autumn essentials and you can't go wrong with any of the fab options from Urbanknit.
*Chichia dress available at Agnes&Lola. Nakate necklace available at Sapelle. ToTe Collections bag available at ankarabags.com. Mo Saique boots available on brands website.
Your favourite summer mini dress can be updated for autumn by teaming it with skinny jeans or leggings. Toughen up the look with leather accents like the fab Mo Saique ankle boots. This look is perfect for a night on the town.
*Moran Plimsoles are available from The Afropolitan Shop. Mawusi headband is available at My Asho Market. All other pieces can be purchased from the brands' website.
With the weather still being fairly mild, shorts are great option for lazy girl styling. Team your favourite printed pair with a plain tee and sweatshirt. Shake things up with fun printed accessories like the hobo bag from Della (look out for a post on the L.A based brand).
