We might still be experiencing a few hot sunny days, but summer is definitely on the way out.

The sun rises later in the morning and the air is crisp.

However, it’s not time to get into full-on winter mode just yet so please don’t pack away your summer clothes.

It simply means that you might have to add a few layers to your outfit and opt for warmer items especially in the mornings and at night when the temperature drops.

There are however a few must-have items you should add to your wardrobe right now.

Dark denim

Dark-wash denim jeans are a versatile option that can be dressed up or down.

Pair them with a blouse and heels for a night out, or with a sweater and sneakers for a casual day look.
