It feels as if the summer only started last week, and it was just yesterday when we shared advice on which designer brands make the best outfits for the heat. However, the beach days are nearly over, and while the weather is steadily getting colder, it is still too early to unpack thick knits and winter coats. Summer to autumn transition is always a confusing period for fashionistas, but we have some good news: there’s no need to hide your best summer dresses away just yet. Instead, pair them up with the following designer brands to stay warm, comfy and trendy.
Nike Air Max 97 Trainers
As we have mentioned before, the best designer shoes are the most comfortable designer shoes. Nike is one of the world’s most famous brands, establishing itself as one of the undeniable leaders when it comes to leisure footwear, with a certain collection currently taking over London as well as other fashion capitals. Although some may argue whether Nike should be listed as a designer brand, we beg to differ. The Air Max 97 collection comes in many different colours and designs, most of which are so unique they can be considered a pure work of art. Not to mention, almost all the trainers are as convenient to style as they are to commute in. Comfortable and light trainers of gentle and bright colours alike will keep your feet warm, whilst radiating that summery vibe. In other words, these trainers are a must-have.
Off White Wide-Leg Jeans
The decade-long era of skinny jeans is nearly over. For several years they have slowly been outranked by various cuts, such as boyfriend jeans, straight leg jeans, flare jeans and many other styles. This year the key challenger and a must-have of the season is the wide-leg jeans cut. Specifically, we would like to highlight denim from Off White as they offer not just great quality, but also a variety of styles and details. Most of the other designer brands are still a little hesitant about the cut and keep experiments to the minimum, whereas Off White hit it right off the bat, presenting a range of wide-leg jeans of classic colours and bolder variations. A pair of Off White’s wide-legs will make you want to give up the skinny jeans forever, we guarantee that.
Bernadette Slip Dresses
Notorious for bright colours and astonishing floral prints, Bernadette clothes always carry a little bit of summer within. Slip dresses had been a big-hitter in June and July, so we understand how difficult it is to part with them once the autumn creeps by. Luckily, colourful and incredibly comfortable dresses from Bernadette are pretty much multi-seasonal. Pair them with a jumper of neutral colours and boots to become the queen of the summer-autumn transition. Cosy light knits will keep you warm, and if the sun peeks out again, you’re ready to take all the sunshine it has to offer. Nothing works better than clothes that keep you warm in unison to ones that bring back warm summer memories.
Peter Pilotto Floral Blouses
Floral print is one of the key accents of summer - not to mention, a promised attribute of AW as well. The high street is currently swarmed by sheer floral blouses, but the true lovers of designer brands shouldn’t feel left out either. Peter Pilotto, already notorious for colourful florals, has plenty of incredible tops to offer as part of their new collection. When it comes to wearing, floral tops are particularly versatile: matched with jeans or a pencil skirt, a colourful blouse will smoothly blend into summer and autumn wardrobes alike. Button-ups and wrap-ups, vivid and subtle: one can never go wrong with Peter Pilotto when it comes to a flowery statement.
Dr Martens Boots
The past few years have truly been the golden age of chunky boots, but the undeniable fashion icon and the king of all the boots are Dr Martens. While this brand is historically timeless and has long turned into a staple piece of every wardrobe due to their longevity, variety of designs and comfort, their time to shine is now. As some claim, you do not choose your Dr Martens: they choose you. And once you find the perfect match, you will never want to stop wearing them. With the transitioning weather and dropping temperatures, the boots are irreplaceable and versatile: skirts, dresses, jeans - everything works. As it would be expected from boots, Dr Martens make a powerful statement, therefore even the simplest outfit paired with them will have a powerful impact.
Mercedes Castillo Block Court Shoes
Boots and trainers are great, but sometimes the situations and occasions require more formal footwear. While in summertime strappy heels were a go-to, it is getting too cold for bare feet and playful holiday-inspired shoes. Fret not, the solution is right here, as classy and comfortable as ever. Court shoes themselves are a classic item that is a must-have for every lady. But this season’s big hit is the block heel. Mercedes Castillo has already released an astonishing collection of block heel court shoes that are as comfortable and all-around as they are beautiful. Paired with wide-leg jeans, they create a truly unique, classy and chic combination we predict will take over the streets very soon. Be one among the first to adopt the hottest look!
Gucci Marmont Bag
While choosing the right designer bag is a science on its own, there are a certain brand and line that is likely to meet everyone’s individual tastes and preferences. The Marmont bags are notorious for being luxurious and comfortable, as well as capable of complementing smart and casual outfits alike. Coming from one of the designer brands powerhouse Gucci, they are also guaranteed to serve you long and well - from every angle you look at it, these bags are flawless. Nowadays available in various sizes and colours, they are the most desired everyday bag of the season. We can see why!
