Season Transitional Must Haves - Gails Rails Blog

Season Transition Must Have Items

Well the evenings are definitely getting shorter and the mornings are without a doubt a bit nippier!!!

Now I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to the cosy jumper and opaque tight season!

Autumn is my favourite time of year for fashion! But It can be tricky mastering that seasonal transition especially when it’s so chilly in the mornings but by 12pm it’s scorching …..

So I’ve put together a few Capsule Wardrobe must have items that you should invest in, to get you though this period but also carry you straight into Autumn/Winter!

Item 1

Faux Suede Jacket

Now there are quite a few of these in stores at the moment but a lot of them are very heavy thick fabric with cumbersome belts!!!

But in my opinion, the best on out there at the moment is the River Island one!!!

It’s super soft, light weight and has a stretch, making it super comfortable.

I bought mine last year and was over joyed when I seen them in stores again this Season!

It is €80, and probably the more pricey one out there but I swear to you it’s the best investment you will ever make in your wardrobe! It goes with everything!!

Item 2

Wrap dress with sleeves

So as you all know I’m a huge lover of wrap dresses!!

They are so flattering on and can hide a multitude due to their adjustable ability!

I have a good few in my wardrobe but my favourite one at the moment, is this fabulous animal print one from Oasis!!

It is a good quality stretch fabric, so very comfortable on the arms, shoulders and across the back!

It’s very true to size and can currently be worn with bare legs but when the weather gets a bit nippier you can add your opaque tight and ankle boots making it a perfect transitional seasonal piece that will bring you right up to early Summer next year!

So win win!! Great investment piece

Item 3


I love Coatigans!!!

It’s neither a coat or a cardigan it’s somewhere in between which makes it perfect for Autumn!

I love the Vila Coatigans! They come in a long and short version but me personally, I love the longline ones! Great over jeans with a simple cami top or add a polo neck in a few weeks when the temperatures drop.

It’s a great all year round piece really!!

Item 4

Shoe boots

Footwear can be the trickiest thing for season transitional periods. But for this time I year I would highly recommend shoe boots!

These are perfect with jeans, ankle grazer trousers that we find are too short for boots and dresses/skirts with opaque tights.

Shoe boots are the answer because they work with every single item of clothing you own.

The ones I’m wearing in the Image are from but other great places to buy are Dune London (€65)  and Marks & Spencers (will hit shelves in the next few weeks)

I own all of these items and they are great investment pieces you will never regret buying.
