Must-have transition pieces for autumn

While cooler days are fast approaching, there are still plenty of warm days sneaking in, requiring our summer wardrobe to fall into autumn. But don't sweat it: here are some ways to make the seasonal transition in style and stay cool at the same time.
Mix textures
MTV’s Lip Sync Battle host Pearl Thusi dazzled in this floral peplum top and faux fur jacket. The jacket breaks the mould and is a fashionable contrast to the pop of colour her top boasts.
Don’t be afraid to combine textures and fabrics. Try it and make a statement! SA blogger Lulama Wolf embraces earth tones and adds fur and suede to her look. This is a great way to look trendy without being overdressed.
Add a jacket
Add a lightweight jacket to that sleeveless shift dress and look more polished at the office like TV personality Boity Thulo. A jacket also adds a fresh twist to your vests, skirts and pants.
Embrace Capes
Capes are some of coolest cover ups you’ll find. They are both functional and fashionable; a statement piece that every woman needs in her wardrobe. This hot pink cape from Gelideli Fashion House covers up and gets heads turning, perfectly elevating the classic black jumpsuit.
Hit the new season on the head with hats and scarves. Try a colourful cashmere scarf and a wide brim hat to stay on trend. We adore this scarf dress by Cape Town based fashion designer Isabel de Villiers.
