Wondering what the heck to wear today?
Late summer is a famously tricky time for getting dressed: will it be scorching sunshine or torrential rain? Breezy or humid? Who knows?
The only thing to do is prepare for all eventualities with some smart transitional pieces to layer over and under your favourite dresses and tees, then shrug them on and off as necessary during the day.
Whether it’s a cosy knit to take to the last barbecue of the season or a slick pair of slingbacks to elevate a co-ord suit, some clever purchases now will tide you over until it’s time for parkas and puffas.
