With the long hot summer nowhere in sight turn your attention to the fashion-forward transitional pieces hitting stores this week - as investing now will see you stylishly through to autumn. French Connection's studded dress has the punk edge that was all over the catwalks for a/w 09 - wear now with leggings and gladiator flats or vamp up with heels and black winged eyeliner. Oasis' edgy-pretty, power-shouldered dress is also a directional look that will work now with bare legs as well as with tights and over-the-knee boots when it gets colder. Dorothy Perkin's sequin waistcoat is the perfect piece if you are still looking for something to wear at summer's festivals that will also have real fashion staying power.
Layer it over this directional any-weather tee by ACNE and complete the look with the newest necklace from Nicole Richie's House of Harlow accessories line. Happy Shopping.
