6 ways to wear your summer clothes in autumn


So, you’ve noticed the distinct lack of sun, sweat and the slow onset of Back2School stationery? Welcome to Autumn. But hang on, don’t pack away your summer clothes just yet, because here are 5 ways you can wear your cute shorts, skirts and summer dresses and still be warm in the upcoming season.


  1. Layer a playsuit over a plain long-sleeved top for a great pop of colour 

 Essentially, your playsuit will become a bodysuit. Try pairing it with ripped jeans and your favourite boots for an even bolder statement outfit.
