The street style stars are out in force for London Fashion Week, which can only mean one thing; the new season has officially arrived. After spending the summer in throw-on-and-go dresses, sandals and shorts, the thought of a return to layering up has a tendency to fill us with fashion dread. Fortunately, thanks to a certain Indian summer, you still have time to perfect your layering game before the cold creeps in for the foreseeable future.

Transitional dressing isn’t easy to master and the key to making it work for you is to find new, cold weather-appropriate, ways to wear your existing wardrobe favourites. Enter this incredible fox-and-coyote-mix fur vest from Michael Kors.

If you keep one eye on the trends, you probably already know that statement furs commanded the runways at the AW16 shows. These aren’t your average hues however; instead, new season furs combine two or three textures and colours, taking them a million miles beyond those your nan used to wear. When it comes to transitional dressing, the fur vest is worth its weight in gold. Layering is key here, so slip yours over the dress you’ve been wearing all summer, replacing your sandals with ankle boots; the humble shirtdress looks anything but boring when worn with a statement fur. Fur and denim are another match made in sartorial heaven, whilst your faithful leather jacket takes on a whole new guise when layered beneath your wardrobe’s new best friend.
