As much as I hate to admit it 'Swinter' is most definitely a thing. If you're not such an avid reader of fashion magazines/blogs as I am you may not be familiar with the term. It's a term used to describe the depressing fact the Britain's weather systems have failed to realised it's summer - therefore resulting in us receiving much more winter-like climates. Swinter.   

Anyway, onto more positive things. 


boohoo.com have recently launched their new campaign #WeAreReady - ready for Autumn/Winter, and why we can't wait for summer to be over. Don't get me wrong I do love the summer, and when it's properly warm I love wearing shorts and crop tops and the works. But I know deep down I'm more of a autumn/winter gal. My wardrobe is mainly made up of jeans and jumpers, and I love a good coat. Along with cosy nights in, big blankets, big blanket scarves and those crisp cold mornings. 


Moving onto the dress. Oh the dress. It's so preeedyy. Going back to the whole Swinter thing, I thought I'd do something a bit different and show how I'd style the dress for Summer, 'Swinter' and Autumn. This is one of those dresses that works so well as something to get you through the changing seasons. The ultimate transitional dress. And because its denim it's quite warm on it's own a.k.a. perfect for British weather in general.



SUMMER


Because technically it is still summer, it's apparently August?! Ha. So if the British weather gives us another glimpse of sun, this would be my look. I've gone for my favourite sunglasses, obviously, sandals, another obvious pick and the cutest little bag - dreaming of being city chic. If only I could be wandering down gorgeous streets of London townhouses rather than posing in my garden. Sigh.

THAT WEIRD MIDDLE TIME a.k.a. SWINTER

This look is to take you through into that weird time of year where the weather's like "is it summer? is it autumn? I don't really know, I'm going to do a bit of both". Keeping with the 70's trend, I've layered the dress with a high neck top, a skinny scarf and a pair of little black boots.

AUTUMN


Moving on to slightly colder times, I'd add a longer sleeved top, tights and (my beloved) fedora hat. This is probably my favourite look - lucky for me as this is probably the one I'll be wearing most from now on. I'd probably chuck on a leather jacket as well on an especially chilly day. York is really not the warmest of cities.

Whack on some thicker tights and a big coat, blanket scarf and maybe even some thigh high boots - I will buy some this year - and it would even take you through to Winter too.
