As we make our way into cooler months while happily bidding adieu to summer’s sweltering heat, it’s time we make room for our transitional wardrobe. Not completely ready to part ways with our summer dresses, shorts and tank tops, yet feeling the urge to try out autumn's newest trends, we look to transitional dressing for a perfect balance. Owing to her jet-set lifestyle and busy work schedule, actor Deepika Padukone’s personal style is a noteworthy lesson in comfort and easy layering. Seamlessly pairing summery hues and silhouettes with cold-weather layers, we take a look at how Padukone puts a chic spin on dressing through the changing weather. 

Sweater weather

Offering endless styling possibilities, cardigans are every fashion girl’s favourite. Styling this staple, Padukone pairs hers with an embroidered knit tank. This knit-on-knit styling is an apt look for a full day of running errands. 

Make it a crop

A trendy cropped denim jacket is an obvious choice for Padukone. Choosing a cheery yellow hue with pink joggers, the actor has us finding new colourways in our fall wardrobe.

Oversized layering

An oversized shirt is possibly the most versatile piece of clothing and Padukone shows us why. She layered hers over a contrasting yellow T-shirt and pink shorts. Packed with staples apt for all seasons, the look is perfect for transitioning from hot afternoons to chilly evenings.  

Match point

Padukone’s style mantra summed up in two words is casual chic, so it's no surprise that the star chose to pair a cosy pullover with matching joggers. This tie-dye knit set is a cool spin on the  tie-dye co-ords trend that has taken over our Instagram feeds.

The trusty trench

Giving a refresh to our most classic wardrobe staple, the trench coat, Padukone took to Instagram wearing a version of it in cobalt blue. She paired the statement trench with a bodycon midi dress and ankle strap pumps in varying shades of blue. Making for a striking monochrome look steeped in style.
