the workwear changeover challenge!

The1st September has been and gone. Once that date gets struck off the calendar I feel a bit of a berk in my High Summer get-up and so I start packing it away. Anyone else do this or is it just me? So what to wear to work during the inbetween-y weather? It's definitely cooler in the mornings and evenings but the days can still be lovely. It's conundrum time....ready to let go of Summer but not quite ready to embrace Autumn. I think I mentioned in a recent post that I've usually purchased a least one coat (my main Winter weakness!) by the end of August but this year I really am trying to resist the urge to peak too soon with A/W clothing as we seem to be in sweaters, boots and coats for most of the year! This time around I'm trying to find a few investment pieces suitable for the tricky transitional phase and beyond. I've been having a little try-on with a few lovely pieces from Winser London....everyone one of these classic items are just perfect for investment changeover but are the kind of clothing that will be in your wardrobe from season to season.
First up is this fabulous black crepe jumpsuit. I love this fabric it's so easy to wear it feels great on and it's a win-win with little or no creasing! The drawstring waist is such a brilliant feature it really straddles that casual/formal element as in it's fab with flats, trainers or boots for daytime yet stick some heels in your bag for the perfect day-to-evening wear. A statement jacket and a funky clutch and you're good to go!

Another perfect all year-rounder piece is a beautifully cut shirt. This one had me at stripes....and silk! 

This shirt is divine....it works with jeans and flats as well as smarter trews for a more business-like look.

Now backing up to the last pic.....those trousers! Sublime is the only way to describe! A crepe jogger which is genius as I love the fabric....it totally lends itself to the more casual style but in a dressier material which makes them so versatile. So comfy, no fastening, just pull on and go! I would actually size up in these as I prefer more of a slouch and I've rolled up the hems too but would probably wear them longer with a heel. 

So a few ideas of those classics that work for work and play! How do manage your workwear wardrobe changeover.....I would love to hear!

Here's how I wore the shirt today for work.....I went with a smart dark denim skinny and some two tone pumps. 

I'll be back soon with a purchase and proper outfit round-up....it's been a while but I have been busy at work covering holidays and organising The Social Brunch Club events. There's a fair bit to catch up on!

This post was written in collaboration with Winser London whom I would like to thank for gifting me the shirt.
