Transitioning My Summer Wardrobe | Culotte Jumpsuit



OK so I know I said in this post that I wouldn't be doing any more of these transitional outfits, but I LIED. Sorry. I keep discovering summer pieces that I want to try and get as much wear out of as possible so who knows, this may not even be the last one. This jumpsuit was a fairly easy one to do and I even styled it way back in April in the transitional period between spring and summer so that's another way I'll be wearing it too. The jumpsuit itself is from New Look and I bought it in spring in anticipation of my summer holiday, but apart from actually on holiday I didn't get all that much wear out of it because on its own it is kinda fancy and I just didn't have the occasion. 

Layering it up for autumn gives it a completely different vibe though and somehow turns it into a more casual item as well as making it warmer so that's a win all round really. I've worn it quite a lot layered under different tops, but one of my favourite ones to wear it with is this white lace oldie from H&M. You actually can't see the top that well in these photos under all ma layers so you'll just have to use your imagination. 

This outfit will definitely see me through further into winter though thanks to my new favourite snuggly jacket (yes I did just use the word snuggly to describe a jacket), which is my current favourite cover up and was an absolute bargain from Primark. I was very torn when I was buying this jacket because they had the most amazing corduroy burgundy one similar, but I've wanted a denim shearling style jacket for ages so this one won out. It's SO warm and cosy and amazingly comfortable. I love that it's a bit oversized because it makes it even snugglier (there's that word again).

I seem to be wearing my old faithful chelsea boots every day at the moment - they just go with everything I own and are the perfect autumn/winter staple that have been in my wardrobe for the past five years (although I have had two different pairs in that time). I love ankle boots for dressing things down a bit too so they work perfectly at making the jumpsuit a little more casual for everyday. I think this makes a great smart casual work outfit (it is smarter without the snuggly jacket I promise) and I imagine I'll probably get more wear out of this jumpsuit over autumn than I did in summer for that reason.

  4. YES to transitional outfits, especially when the weather is all over the place still in the UK (although, is it just me or has it got really really cold over the past few days?). Love the jacket layered over this jumpsuit!

  6. YASSSS I always love this jumpsuit when I see photos of it and it looks so good with the jacket! They really are like dreamy levels of snuggliness (is that a word...?!) aren't they - excellent job Primark. I've also been loving layering a culotte jumpsuit over a top at the moment to transition them/get as much wear out of them as possible until I really have to put them away...xxx

  8. Well I'm really liking these posts as I find it sad that summer gear has to be put away for months on end! You look so great, the jumpsuit looks really comfy but cool at the same time. I'm living in my chelsea boots lately too, such a classic go to x

  10. I love this look, the jumpsuit is amazing! And 'snuggly' is definitely one of my fashion criteria, too, don't worry haha. I don't get why anyone would wear uncomfortable clothes for the sake of fashion. I pretty much wear ankle boots every day, they just go with everything xx
