The Cardigan

Perfect for transitioning from the summer heat to brisk Autumn afternoons — a definitely must-have for the season. Bonus if you’ve got one in a few colours so you’re always outfit-ready!

Floral print v-neck via OASAP.

The Button-Up

Go for a classic style with a feminine twist, like beading, lace, or a unique collar or cuff design. For colour, I love a crisp white, or a soft ivory.

Polkadot blouse via Yestermade.

The Trousers

Try high-waisted — darker colours and office-ready patterns are great. Again, a wonderful transition piece that can first be worn with flats and oxfords, then with booties or knee-highs.

The Eyewear

A fun way to incorporate vintage frames into your wardrobe: have non-prescription lenses put in so you can wear them no matter how they came to you. If you do need lenses, just have them fit with your particular prescription and you’re good to go.

The Shoes

You can’t go wrong with Oxfords, but feel free to spice things up a little with a funky pattern, an unexpected material, or interesting colour. Pop on a pair of super low socks to get the barefoot look sans blisters.
