The hot weather is drawing to a close, and while we’re not quite ready to get into tights and coats, we are (dare we say it) excited to start wearing jumpers, ankle boots and autumn/winter 2023’s biggest trends. If you’re bored with lightweight dresses and want to feel a little more autumnal, here are five weekend outfits that you don’t have to wait until October or November to wear.
All of these have layers that you can easily add and take away, so you can wear them this weekend and beyond. Our favourite outfit we’ve spotted is Lucy Williams’s grassy green slip skirt paired with a dark denim jacket and chunky, rubber-soled boots. We are also obsessed with Sylvie Mus’s jeans, sandals and bustier paired with a Matrix-style leather trench coat.
