Dressing for Autumn: The Omi Na-Na Way!

As the leaves begin to change colours and the air turns crisp, it's time to bid farewell to the heat of summer and welcome the cosiness of autumn. Many brands will be encouraging you to buy new warmer items whereas at Omi Na-Na, we simply suggest wearing your lovely clothes in different ways. We call it transeasonal dressing! 

What is transeasonal dressing?

To us, transeasonal dressing is pretty simple. It’s being creative with your wardrobe and thinking about how you can wear one item in different ways to accommodate for the changing weather. For example, take your favourite summer dress. Is there a way you could layer it up with a cardigan, tights and boots so that you can wear it in the colder months? We often find that so much of your individual personality shines through when items are worn this way as you tend to become more experimental with your style.

Transeasonal Pieces You’ll Love

Our community often shared feedback about their purchases from us and there’s definitely a few winning dresses that people tend to wear throughout the year in different ways.

Say hello to the Autumn Blossom Dress - one of our all-time best-selling dresses! Yes - it’s made of cotton but the longer maxi dress length is perfect for pairing with tights and boots. We find lots of our customers tend to wear polo necks underneath it too.

A popular piece that’s very easy to layer underneath and also comfortable is the Flow Jumpsuit as worn by author and activist Emma Dabiri. Choose from four great hand-dyed and hand-woven fabrics and a wide size ranging from XS to 6XL or even have one made to your own measurements.

Another highly rated jumpsuit (rated 5*) is the hand-block printed Lines in the Sand Jumpsuit which is another comfortable option made from cotton and looks great with boots and baggy cardigan on top!

A dress perfect for all seasons is the Olivia Shirt Dress - made from a lovely thick cotton and again, available in four autumnal hand-dyed shades! The navy and black are the best-sellers so far but don’t forget to check out the stunning red shade too.
