HOW TO WEAR: TRANSITIONAL JACKETS

It's finally September, which means that winter's nearly over and summer's shining on the horizon. Therefore, it's time to prepare accordingly by switching out your cover-ups and updating your wardrobe with some smart layers to shield you from the rapidly changing weather. To get you started, here's a selection of transitional jackets that'll see you right through the in-between-y days of spring.

Half-zip hype

If there's one particular strand of outerwear that's reigned supreme this year, it's the 90s-flavoured half-zip. Show that you know how to nail transitional dressing the 2017 way by wearing a lightweight half-zip windbreaker in a fresh, block colour that'll brighten up the gloomiest of spring evenings.

To really prove your new-season sartorial skill, pair it with velour trackies in a contrasting colour, complete with on-trend side stripes. Steezy.

Light-brown layer

Muted tones like beige and brown are colours to look out for. Experiment with textures and style this tan corduroy jacket over a magenta velour jumper for an authentic 70s look.

Don a pair of trews in a deep-purple shade for a 'fit that plays with tones – sitting somewhere between the rich retro palette of Prada, Ami and Marni's 2017 collections and a particularly pleasing display of seasonal foliage.

Trenchtown rock

A trench coat is always a solid choice when it comes to this in-between period – sturdy enough to withstand a stiff breeze and an unexpected shower, light and loose enough to accommodate as many layers as you need underneath. Dispel the myth that pastel colours are reserved only for high-summer by wearing a bluey-green trench with a tracksuit top in a similarly soft shade of pale purple underneath.

For extra slickness, pick a pair of cropped trousers that match your rolled-up coat cuffs, and rock the spring-colours-for-always vibe going with a pastel pink cap and complementing sneaks.
