Shout out to everyone who hates summer because right now it's your time to shine. The weather is no longer sweltering and we can get out the best bits of our wardrobes: jeans and jumpers. But with so many combinations to try, which ones are working in 202? Below, I've collected a few of my favourite looks that will work with any kind of footwear you choose—whether it's still warm and you want sandals (probably pushing it now though) or with your favourite pair of ankle boots. But back to the actual outfits. There's a short-sleeve cardigan–and–blue jeans look that's ideal for those warmer autumn days, and is great for wearing if you're WFH. Then there's a stripy jumper–and–black jeans outfit, which, for someone who still loves Nirvana, is the perfect tribute to Kurt Cobain's grunge aesthetic. Right now, however, I'm particularly into the minimalistic look in the form of a roll-neck and skinny jeans. Keep scrolling to find the above and more.
