How to take Summer tops into Autumn
Plain t-shirts always make a useful layer, but a bold color will give warmth and definition to an outfit in the cooler months too.
Choose distinctively colored Summer tops that complement your natural coloring. They are key pieces which will team with basic neutrals all year round.
