With Autumn leaves starting to fall yet the sun still burning bright, dressing for the transitional weather can be pretty overwhelming. At Esther & Co., we want to help you with this yearly conundrum and give you a few tips for some go-to transitional essentials, so that you'll be prepped for rain, hail or shine.
BBC (Big Black Cardigan)
Not quite warm enough for your go-to Little Black Dress? We're on board with the BBC, a true transitional saviour - the Big Black Cardigan. A plain black cardigan is an essential for transitional months as it matches with pretty much everything and most importantly, will shield you from the windy morning walks to the train station. For a Gigi-inspired look, our Armino cardigan is an Esther favourite because of its warmth and length. You'll look great while basically feeling like you've left the house in your blanket!
Turtle Neck Dress
A warm turtle neck dress is an Autumn go-to, with its flattering silhouette and practicality. Who doesn't love when fashion meets comfort? Providing enough warmth and style, a turtle neck dress can be easily dressed up or down. If you’re feeling fancy, pair it with some plain heels or booties, or keep it casual with your favourite sneakers. Alessandra Ambrossio’s take on the turtle neck dress is a cool street-style look, paired with Puma sneakers. Style it your way with our Sinclair Dress- a classic silhouette to play around with!
Long Length Skirts
To ease your legs into the chilly mornings, a midi or maxi skirt is the way to go. If you’re looking for the perfect work-appropriate style that doesn't look like you've just raided your grandma’s wardrobe, then style your flowing skirt with a crop top or lightweight blouse. The long length skirt will also take you from day to evening and allows you to maintain those light Summery vibes! We're loving Mary-Kate Olsen's high-fashion take on the midi skirt. Keep it easy and bright with our floral Vida Skirt!
Long Sleeved Wrap Dresses
Wrap dresses had a serious moment last Summer, and they don't appear to be going anywhere for the colder months! Take the trend into Autumn by opting for a longer sleeve- pair it with some strappy heels for the perfect nighttime look or some booties and a jacket to make things more casual. Steal Kim's flattering style with our stunning Edith Dress!
Not ready to part ways with your mini skirts just yet? Time to add a pleather skirt to your wardrobe! Pleather is perfect (cheaper!) leather alternative, and provides a warmth that your other Summer skirts just can't compete with. They also look great paired with stockings underneath for an even warmer look. Team your pleather skirt with a structured top for the perfect corporate look, like blogger Chiara Ferragni. You can also keep things super casual by pairing pleather with a girly crop!
