The very day after the calendar gently dimmed the lights on Summer, Autumn announced that it had entered the building in Sydney with a couple of cool and rainy days punctuated by booming thunder and dazzling displays of lightning that’d put the pyrotechnics at a Beyoncé concert to shame.
So it’s time to update our trans-seasonal wardrobes with a few essentials and fun pieces that’ll take us from the office, to the playground, and yes, maybe even to see ‘ol Sasha Fierce in full throttle.
Trade your ballet flats for a T-Bar Mary Jane
Because I like to drink tea, I enjoy going to bars, and Alexa Chung is still wearing them. But mainly because it’s a cute take on the classic that keeps those babies securely on your feet even when you accidentally step in a puddle.
Switch your slouchy tote a Doctor style bag
Big enough to fit an iPad and a pack of baby wipes, yet sharp enough to take to work. Ensure your Doctors Style bag comes with a long detachable shoulder strap for when you need to go hands-free.
Swap your cardi for an embellished hoodie
It’s sports-luxe with a twinkle. And wear it draped over your shoulders – it’s not cold enough to really need it yet, right?!
Replace last year’s umbrella with one that’s bright, light and fun
Especially if it’s broken or bares any kind of logo.
What’re you looking forward to the most now the seasons have changed?
