Trans-Seasonal Dressing Just Got So Much Easier

It's farewell to Summer, but 'hello' to a whole new wardrobe

It's time to say 'goodbye' swimsuit, 'see ya' beaten up espadrilles, and 'so long' to all that summer holiday clobber.

Autumn is beginning to roll in and its not-quite-yet-but-nearly status happens to be good news for your wardrobe. Yes really.

Forget lamenting the demise of the sunnier months, because this Autumn presents your wardrobe with a wonderful opportunity.

Celebrate the chance to play with layers, mix fabrics and the sweet relief of being able to wear an ankle boot again without broiling your toes.

This is the window to try out those runway looks that never quite made it to real life.

You know the ones, the huge chunky coat with bare legs, too warm to wear in summer, too cold for winter, but perfect during September and October.

Think 3.1 Phillip Lim's parker jacket and leather mini skirt that came down his AW16 runway or Burberry's midi split to the thigh worn with a long check coat.

Recall all the catwalks filled with socks and sandals, the slip dresses and woolen beanies – this is their time. Embrace it.

ELLE paired with Very to put together some great, versatile trans-seasonal looks.

All images styled using the new Very collection - shop all the looks now - and have fashion delivered to you free the next day.

All the layers: Add a polo shirt under a slip
The subtle clash: pair wide leg check trousers with animal print
Take notes: Suki and wears bright white lace
The midi skirt still reigns: It's one of the most versatile money can buy
The new uniform: cropped jumpers, knee high boots and a lightweight coat
