Transitioning into fall is uncertain territory — it’s still summer (but not really), and school is starting again (but you’re not in the thick of it). How does one sartorially cope, you ask? Well, I personally cope through layering light pieces and wearing cool jackets. In my first outfit, I rock a light jumper as a tee, a scuba pleated skirt and a leather jacket. The light jumper is more warm than a teeshirt, yet it doesn’t leave its wearer boiling hot, and the skirt still coordinates without inducing heat stroke. To finish it off, I added my favourite leather jacket to block extra wind. If its raining (most of the time it is in Scotland), I’ll instead opt for a cropped trench coat in a light material.
As for my trainers (most importantly) these leather converse are genius. If everyone on earth was required to buy one pair of trainers, it should be these. Not only do they go with everything, but the leather makes them 100% more comfortable than the canvas.
Bag wise, I like to carry purses with wide sides, since they can fit a laptop, yet still be a purse. This year, I’d only try to wear a backpack if I could miraculously get my hands on the new Alexander Wang fall 2014 one…. so cool.
