How to transition from summer to autumn in style

Summer to autumn

With autumn just around the corner, now is the time when most of us will be thinking ahead to how we can prep for the new season.

Our homes, and more specifically our wardrobes, need to move with the times, but how can you make that transition from summer to autumn smoothly and in style? Here we answer that all-important question to get you organised just in time for the new season.

Introduce warm autumnal shades

Autumn is certainly a season to be celebrated. With the changing season comes a whole new palette of beautiful tones to work with, and autumn is all about those warm and rich shades. When bringing your wardrobe or your home seasonally up to date, introducing mustard, burgundy, beige, and neutral shades will transform your space and style for the season ahead.

Upgrade your wardrobe with an autumnal pop of colour by choosing our deep orange Tony Scarf to spruce up day and night ensembles.

As well as sporting a vibrant, autumn-inspired colour, it’s made from 100% baby alpaca wool for a luxurious, soft to the touch, super cosy look and feel that’ll see you through the coming season and the next.

Master the art of layering

Layering will be your best friend as you negotiate the unpredictable weather that goes hand-in-hand with that transition from summer to autumn. It’ll also mean that you can keep donning summer pieces a lot longer as well as slowly introduce the clothing must-haves that’ll keep you warm and cosy all through autumn and winter.

Who What Wear reveals why mastering the art of layering is vital at this time of year:

“Fall is the perfect time to test out your layering skills and utilize some of your favourite items that are already in your closet to create ensembles. Remember: It’s not about being complicated; it’s about outfit combinations that are greater than the sum of their parts. Plus, should a bit of overheating occur, you can always peel off the garments throughout the day to keep cool and comfortable indoors.

Our Lilly Shawl – seen here in a very autumnal tawny port – is a key piece that’ll help you layer like a pro throughout autumn. Its versatile nature and easy wear mean it can be used as a wrap, shawl or scarf. It even doubles as a blanket, making it the perfect travel companion wherever your autumn takes you.

Invest in a statement piece

Every season has its statement piece, and finding your statement piece for autumn is easier than you think. Add some drama to your pared-back, timeless autumn wardrobe by investing in a So Cosy Cape.

It’s the ultimate throw-on piece that’s ideal for autumn as well as great for layering. It’s also silky soft, lightweight and warm, so you’re certain to want to wear it every season after.

Wool uses

Add a layer of warmth to your space

With temperatures dropping and the weather getting more and more unpredictable, home is certainly where the heart is during the autumn and winter months.

Up the hygge factor and make your home the cosy space it should be by adding the ultimate autumn accessory – a Merino wool blanket or throw.

Our stunning Capri Throw is made for an autumn home décor upgrade. It’s crafted with 100% extra fine Merino wool to keep you warm and comfy even when it’s cold outside. Our Merino wool blankets – which are available in a range of stunning colours – are so beautiful, they’re certain to become staple pieces in every room of your house from season to season.

Create a haven at home

The seasonal shift means great sleep is more difficult to come by, which is all the more reason to make a few changes to your boudoir as you welcome autumn. The secret to achieving the best night’s sleep whatever the season however is down to your choice of bedspread.

Pure new wool bedspreads are unlikely allies at this time of year. In fact, they can be used all year round thanks to their all-natural temperature regulating qualities to ensure a restful night, every night.
