Four Ways To Shift Your Wardrobe From Summer To Autumn Mode

Transeasonal dressing is as important, and perhaps hard to pull off, in Australia than in any other country. Our climate in Autumn swings between blazing hot and freezing cold, and from brilliant sunshine to pouring rain seemingly on a whim, making finding those staple garments built to deal with both all the harder. Here, we offer four strategic investments to transition your daily rotation towards the cooler weather.

Swap the chinos for trousers

Cotton chinos are a summer smart casual essential, but their naturally lightweight build works against them when things start to cool down. Having a heavier weight cotton drill trouser on hand will add a little extra workwear-derived ruggedness to your ensemble, and they pair great with both sneakers and loafers.

Lightweight knits

Layering over the top of a suit is often a quick way to overheat with Australian winter days being what they are. A thin jumper will sit perfectly beneath a suit jacket to keep the worst of the chill at bay without adding excess bulk to your ensemble.

An outerwear all-rounder

Sport coats are one of the most versatile outerwear pieces around, their more unstructured nature affording a more elevated look over the top of a t-shirt while dressing down a more businesslike look without sacrificing too much formality. The devil is in the materials though we recommend a cashmere-wool blend to strike a balance between structure and softness.

Elevate your footwear

With the end of summer comes the end of sneaker season, meaning it’s time to add some more formal, yet versatile footwear to your daily rotation. Suede loafers add an extra flair when paired with a suit, while a classic pair of leather Chelsea boots are a must for throwing on with jeans, smart trousers and everything in-between.
