Trans-Seasonal Stripes

Taking stripes into Autumn/Winter is all about downplaying the summery nautical associations by working with colour, texture and silhouette. Bold, graphic stripes are on trend with a mix of variations on the classic stripe seen everywhere from Sass & Bide's embellished oversize coat to Joseph's grey wrap skirt through to the textural mini at Sonia Rykiel.

To update your wardrobe for the cooler months choose a horizontal stripe in a dark navy or grey contrast and look for either a very fine subtle line or a thick, unsymmetrical stripe. Go for dark or neutral accessories and bold hardwear details. The stripe knit is a wardrobe classic but as we farewell Summer, look for something more adventurous like a playsuit, an origami skirt or wide leg pants and pair back with textural pieces such as faux fur or mohair.

Playsuit & Fedora

This Playsuit is from Princess Polly (loving the Afterpay option, with the choice to pay off your items over 6-8 weeks). The hat is Sportsgirl, the rings are vintage and the necklace is one of my most special pieces of jewellery - a turquoise pendent silver chain given to my by my sister which she found traveling through Mexico.

Cut-out Boots

Adding an unexpected winter piece such as this shaggy faux fur vest from General Pants takes the playsuit into trans-seasonal territory and gives an edge to what would otherwise be considered a summer wardrobe item.


Ear Cuff

I love an oversize Clutch to add drama and these fringe ankle boots from Zara have been a wardrobe staple since I bought them 2 years ago, they get worn probably more than any other shoe in my wardrobe. A good ankle boot is one of the best wardrobe investments you can make. I'm also a loyal fan of the ear cuff, I like the simple, soft silver variations that curve around the ear and are comfortable enough to wear everyday.

The Edit

Top 6 Trans-Seasonal Stripe Pieces

My picks for the season are this DKNY jumper - wearable, chic, simple and the perfect shade of Navy. I've got my eye on this Sass & Bide oversize coat, it references the bomber jacket trend but in a more relaxed and long line style. I adore this Joseph wrap skirt for the unexpected shape and structural design. J-Crew are always on the money and these heels are a wearable and on trend heel. Sonia Rykiel have a range of stripe options, this woven mini is structured enough for the cooler months and a perfect core piece to team with over the knee boots. Lastly Witchery blend their famous white shirting with the classic stripe in this tailored and interesting design, which is a great layering piece to pair back with a long sleeve basic.
