It’s official: Autumn is here. Leaves are turning delightful colours, and there’s pumpkin carving and even talk of party season approaching. However, there’s another important matter we have to address. Now that it’s colder, with temps always hitting the low-to-mid teens, what do you wear in 15-degree weather? Luckily, we’ve sorted through some key pieces to have on standby to help answer that major question.
Fifteen degrees might seem chilly, but it’s actually a pretty comfortable temperature—not too hot but not too cold. Still, this indeterminate forecast is difficult to dress for. Wear too thick a knit and you’ll feel flushed, but breezy, lightweight textures like linen might feel too cool on their own. To help you assemble outfits to suit a temperature drop, we’ve rounded up nine foolproof suggestions from some of our favourite influencers, who seem to have the art of transseasonal dressing down.
With everything from an alternative to bulky winter coats to the layering hero piece you’ll consistently reach for over the next six months, scroll on to see nine impressive outfits that perfectly demonstrate what to wear in 15-degree weather. Then, should they not already feature in your wardrobe, proceed to shop the key pieces you need to re-create them.
1. KEY BUY: TRENCH COAT
Style Notes: Trench coats are considered a year-round staple for most fashion types, but they loan themselves particularly well to middle-of-the-road temperatures, too. Often lightweight but roomy enough to layer knitwear underneath, they’re the perfect addition to any pre-fall capsule. Plus, they come in handy in the rain.
