How to Transition your Summer Wardrobe
As temperatures begin to drop and “Back to School” ads are in full swing, you might be turning your attention to getting ready for cold winter days ahead. But while the summer season may be ending; in reality there are plenty of sunny days in Autumn and good times to be had in the months ahead; not least because we are all hoping to see further relaxations on Covid restrictions – with plenty of opportunity to catch up on all that social activity and fun events we missed in the last 18 months or so.
So, it’s an ideal time now to review your wardrobe and get it sorted for the coming months. September usually delivers lots of dry and pleasant days – with a splash of rain here or there of course – but with the sun setting earlier, the evenings can be a little cooler than what you have been used to. This can make it a confusing time when it comes to choosing outfits, as it may be too warm for a jacket but too cold for just a t-shirt. So, before we fully transition back into our winter woollies, let’s make the most of this “goldilocks” period.
With this in mind, Choice Boutique has prepared a beautiful selection of transitional pieces to see you through the “not-so-hot, but not-so-cold” days ahead!
So first up, let’s talk about what “transitional” pieces of clothing actually means in practice. In simple terms, this refers to clothing that enables you to seamlessly transition from summer to autumn without having to fully switch out your wardrobe. Essentially, they allow you to continue rocking your summer favs with a little extra warmth to get you through the cooler days.
