With the last remnants of summer slowly fading and the promise of rain lingering in the air, choosing an outfit has become significantly trickier. Let’s face it, umbrellas are merely an afterthought nowadays and only remembered when it’s too late. But don’t fret, layering pieces is the perfect way to deal with the bipolar weather while still retaining your own sense of style.
Here are a few must-have items straight from your favorite local celebs!
Leather jackets have been considered the epitome of cool since a young John Travolta popped up on our screens with his slicked back hair in Grease. Not only will it keep you nice and toasty, but it can also add a certain edge to the simplest of clothing items.
Sweater weather is arriving so make sure you have one of your own to keep you cozy throughout the day. Rhian wears a dark lightweight sweater with two thick red stripes for a preppy look. Choose one with a statement design as your go-to for those days when you’re in a dash.
The resurgence of ’90s nostalgia has brought back a wave of trends, including the denim jacket. Either tied around the waist, as how Bela styled hers, or worn to keep you warm, it brings a laidback feel to any outfit.
On particularly cool days, a loose fitting duster is the answer to all your wants and needs. This lighter version of a traditional coat is perfect for those living in warmer climates. Lighter toned ones, such as the terracotta pink one worn by Isabelle, are especially uplifting even in the dreariest of times.
Sometimes all you need is the feeling of a well-worn hoodie to get you through your day. Take a cue from Emily and pair yours with some tight-fitting leggings to make sure your figure isn’t enveloped by the large material.
For a refreshing change, why not wear a long-sleeved blouse underneath a loose dress or jumper? Kim Jones wears a black turtleneck below a `60s mod-printed dress for an extra layer of warmth. It’s an extra zest of quirk in your clothing repertoire.
Cruella De Vil might have been onto something after all because faux fur coats have begun to rise in popularity. Bea brings the extravagant item down to Earth with a sweet floral dress. Paired with simple items, the wild card statement piece will have you turning heads.
A versatile scarf can make you look significantly more chic in an instant. Go for those with a pattern like the deep burgundy one on Liz to complete any outfit. From making it into a headpiece or tying it around the neck, the endless possibilities will ensure you never get bored or chilly.
