One minute it's sunny, the next it's practically sub-zero temperatures, which is why at this time of year we're all about trans-seasonal pieces. Buying items you can wear now and will still be wearing in three months time is key. That's why we're loving autumn shorts, modelled perfectly for us by the lovely and leggy Alexa Chung. Go for rich textures like velvet, brocade or silk and team with slinky jersey and fine knits. If you're still sporting your summer tan, go for bare legs (weather permitting) and then swap for black opaque tights later in the month. Alexa's pendant necklaces and back-to-school satchel are perfect for this effortless look.
