FLAT LAY

YOUR TRANSITIONAL SUMMER 'FIT

By Steven Potter, 14 August 2019

Yep, it's the time of the year when all bets are off when it comes to the weather. It may currently be wet and windy, but we still could see another heatwave before the summer is over, and there is hope we could once again bathe in that glorious sunshine. Whatever happens, it pays to be prepared – and if you’re thinking more transitional recently, we got you. Take a peep at the below ‘fit, ideal for dealing with the trickiest of climates.

What to do when your weather app's saying 13 degrees in the AM and 25 in the PM? Cop a gilet, of course – the humble sleeveless wonder is pretty much tailor-made for this exact predicament. The borg number above keeps the chill off and won’t take up much room in your bag when those temps start creeping up in the afternoon. Underneath, a long-sleeve tee sets you up for showcasing your latest print work; in this case, from streetwear newcomer Corella.

Utility styles aren’t always about camo. Those Collusion pinstripe trews have got smart-casual locked down, equally at home with a pair of chunky trainers one minute and dressed up at your nan’s birthday the next. All that’s left to do is pick your accessory. Considering this is a utility-led look, a cross-body from CK Jeans, featuring extra pockets and strappy details, should settle this ‘fit nicely. Still, fingers crossed for that heatwave though, right?
