Summer has nearly come to its end as we flip our calendars over to September.


What does this mean for your wardrobe? It’s time to start thinking about layering -- what you will be putting on later for the cool autumn breeze. So here we’ve selected some key pieces and styling tips you need to transition well into fall.

In and out of office

Checks, tartans, and plaids have always been autumn’s classic patterns, but this season, grey checkered patterns are particularly seen everywhere. The cleanest and easiest way to wear this pattern is on blazer pieces that are perfect to throw on as you step out the door. Polished and structured, these can easily become your office wear staples that you can rock off-duty as well, thanks to the modern details in cuts and lengths.


This timeless window pane print vest blazer features a long length, that’s wearable with jeans, leggings, or black pants. Its length will put more emphasis on your top to create refreshing, modern proportions while the classic print and the silhouette keep it professional.


What’s more is that with vests, there are so many possible pairings in terms of tops, from sleeveless blouses and camis to simple, long sleeve shirts. Each time you wear this vest blazer with a different top underneath, it’ll look like a brand new piece. If you’re looking for additional layering options, we recommend putting on a grey cardigan underneath. The white shirt, grey cardigan and checkered vest trio will have you looking more trendy and polished than ever.

The new classic

Alternatively, for those colder days, this perfect hybrid between a lightweight jacket and a cardigan can warm and style you up.


Practical with pockets and its long length, we recommend pairing this with skinny-fitting pants for an elongating effect.


This look will go perfectly with those fall boots you’ve been waiting to wear all season long. The chic grey print also goes well with blue hues of your jeans, so it’s time to experiment and see what style you wear best.

Additionally, this coatigan can live in your closet for far longer than other autumn pieces, depending on how you are layering it on top of other warmer pieces.


Here, we see it styled with a packable down jacket, coupled with jeans and sneakers for an added touch of the athleisure trend. Now you don’t have to worry about what to wear during those in-between season months or extra-chilly early mornings.

In the trenches

What is fall without its signature trench coats? Light trenches and fall weather are a match made in heaven that we come back to season after season. For this fall, we’ve upgraded our soft trench with more feminine details like the belted waist and bell sleeves. Known for its waist-cinching effect, the belt detail can help you create a more feminine, elegant silhouette. The soft balloon sleeves, of course will bring out even more femininity of the trench coat, revamped with belt detailing which will bring an air of utility chic to your outfit.


On the other hand, when worn open, this trench will give off a more casual, chic vibe. Pair this with your favourite slim-fit pants for a classic, ultra-feminine look, or opt for wide leg pants for a more trendy, menswear-inspired outfit. On casual weekends, create a relaxed, off-duty look by wearing a pair of straight leg jeans with the coat open and unbelted. Roll up the jeans and complete the look with low rise sneakers, and you got yourself a cool, carefree outfit that’s perfect for your daytime plans.
