Transitional dressing from summer through to autumn is always difficult when you’re finding it hard to say ‘cheerio’ to summer.


This is despite the dark mornings and evenings being now here, along with the colder weather and the possibility of catching influenza epidemics due to the drastic change in temperatures. So the bottom-line is, it is time to wrap well up!

Fail to plan, plan to fail. The chilly Autumn weather demands a wind, rain and hail resistant wardrobe. The best method is perhaps to cover all three of these inclement weather challenges by the acquisition of key layering pieces.

Gradually take measures to move with such dynamics by layering your most popular sunshine styles with cold-weather ready garments.  For example, your chunky knitwear and a classic coat can become autumn wardrobe heroes. Dull weather doesn’t have to mean a washed-out and colourless wardrobe. Autumn is the time to layering introduce some pleasantly soft colours, timeless textures and showcasing detail into your attire for autumn.

A ladies shirt is key to warm and stylish new season dressing. Simply, layer over a top and under a super soft knit cardigan to ensure you look ‘smart but casual‘, whilst still keeping warm. Wrap up warm, and do so in style, is the motto as we approach the autumn and festive season.

In a nutshell, it is the cold snap season on trend to think of practical and wearable combinations – super soft knitwear, easy-wear denim and statement making throw overs. All of which the new season Polo Ralph Lauren collection caters for.
