Here are the top 5 clothing items you can be excited about wearing now – and in three months time, accordingly to fashionising.

1.  The little lace dress.

The lace dress as a day-to-night staple isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so don’t be afraid to invest now and keep wearing as the temperature drops. Swap open-toed heels for tights and ankle boots, add a coat, and the little lace dress works across the seasons.

2.  The chic white pant.
Turn a summer staple into the basis of a winter white outfit with a pair of chic tailored or wide-leg white pants. As the mercury drops, pair them with boots, a matching white blazer or white coat trimmed in fluffy faux fur.

3.  The cropped moto jacket.
Heatwaves not withstanding, there are plenty of evenings in summer where a cool breeze warrants a chic jacket, and for that your most versatile option is either a great tailored blazer or a second-skin leather biker. A cropped moto jacket in a nude leather is visually lighter and more suitable for the warmer months – and yet it’ll carry you straight through to fall, able to be worn with everything from a floaty dress to a pair of jeans.

4.  The sheer plaid shirt.
A plaid shirt in semi-cheer chiffon is the ideal marriage of neo grunge and laid back glamour. The lightweight fabric makes it great for summer nights in denim shorts or – for a complete contrast – elegant evening skirts. For fall, make it all about layering: under knits, over dresses, or nonchalantly tied around the waist.

5.  The circle skirt.
Full skirts have had a reinvention the past few years, going from a strictly feminine and vintage-inspired item to a piece with which anything goes. For fall, trade short sleeves for a relaxed slouchy knit or even a sporty varsity jacket, bringing this mid-century classic into the effortless territory of the modern day.
