Seasonal Cover-Ups

It’s definitely not bad news that the sun is extending its stay this season, but it’s wreaking havoc with our wardrobes: too hot to wear a big coat, too cold to go completely without – what’s a girl to do? Read below for our tips on how to master seasonal dressing and scroll through the gallery above to see how the A-list are pulling it off.

The Sleeveless Jacket
A fine way to get around dressing for inbetween weather, Olivia Palermo’s sleeveless, long-length jacket in powder blue is understated and the perfect cover-up. Olivia’s jumper, worn underneath, will fend off the cold while her matching pleated skirt keeps the look enviably ladylike.

The Boyfriend Jumper
Only Ashley Olsen could wear a black V-neck boyfriend jumper with a navy satin floor-length skirt and look amazing. Proving that dressed-down eveningwear can still look stylish, Ashley’s minimal earrings and croc handbag ensure that this is one outfit that can go from summer to winter with ease.

The Tuxedo Jacket
Working androgyny superbly, actress Emma Watson paired a perfectly-cut tuxedo jacket with her slim black trousers and patent stiletto pumps. Keeping her crisp shirt buttoned to the top and accessorising with a metallic clutch, we love this seasonal ensemble. Just add a red lip.

The Bouclé Jacket
Style-wise, Sarah Jessica Parker always seems to get it right. Whether on the red carpet or the school run, SJP is one stylish maven. Here, she showcases an elegant bouclé jacket teamed with a full-skirted black dress – a classic way to stave off the chill while still looking effortlessly chic.
