‘ It’s all about the layering. Take that summer dress and dress up with jumpers/jackets and boots to instantly take your summer wardrobe into Autumn’
- Emma told us the easiest way to get those extra miles out of your fave summer dress is to layer up with your cosy winter knits. Pick out same tones to coordinate the look. In the photos Emma wears her fave Dilly Grey dress and has created a beautiful autumnal tonal look in this years AW colour trend cinnamon brown.
- Jacket up! Jackets and coats play a vital role in finishing the look and tying it together (after its primary purpose of keeping you warm, of course). A summer dress is instantly taken into Autumn by layering up using your jackets. From your trusty leather, to a more casual army inspired jacket you can change up the looks and go from school run to lunch time date simply by layering these items.
- Shoes – Swap your sandals to chunky lace up boot for a more edgy look, or chuck on your trusty white trainers for casual styling. The walking boot is this winters must have boot, so dig them out!

Of course team up all your looks with tonal BAS pieces and you can change your looks even further.
