Well, it’s officially March. That means it’s the beginning of autumn here in Australia — aka that awkward time where it’s too cold for short sleeves but still too hot for jeans and wooly jumpers. What’s a girl to do, beyond carrying a blanket around for some impromptu layering (or is that just me?) Uh, stock up your wardrobe with cute, tran-seasonal dresses, of course! From grey marle to stripes, there are so many 3/4 to long-sleeved options that will keep you cosy without being TOO hot. They’re equal parts chic and sporty, meaning you can dress them up with heeled boots or keep them casual with sneakers and they’ll never look out of place. Yep, they’re this season’s most versatile athleisure essential. Click through the gallery for some of our current faves — but good luck picking just one!
