At Who What Wear, we know just how much you, our readers, love to hear about the latest and greatest trends, easy styling solutions, and the best of the best on the high street. That’s why we’ve partnered with Gap, one of our forever go-to destinations for effortless style, to bring you The Fashion Forecast—a new series dedicated to solving your everyday styling needs and wants, as well as getting a grip on emerging trends with the help of some of the coolest influencers around. This week we catch up with In My Sunday Best‘s Sade, who shows us three perfect denim outfits to take us from the end of summer into the new season.

My everyday style always tends to revolve around denim basics. My favourite pieces in my wardrobe are all trans-seasonal styles that can be layered up in different ways across spring, summer, autumn, and winter, and most of them are denim. Gap, for me, is one of the best places on the high street to head to for all your denim needs and classic pieces. Here I’ve put together three affordable—but wearable—looks from the new season collection that work perfectly for this in-between-seasons time.

A classic mid-blue denim jacket is definitely the one piece I’ve been wearing all summer and will continue to do well into Autumn. I’m a true believer that everyone needs a great one in their wardrobe. It can be thrown over pretty much any dress when the evenings start to get chillier, and it also looks amazing doubled up with other denim. Lightweight, layerable, and super stylish, it’s a must-have. As the seasons start to change and we head into autumn, I’ll be styling mine with white jeans and knitted vests like I did here.

As for actual jeans, I think it’s essential that the style and fit enhance your figure but still feel comfortable at the same time. That’s why I love Gap styles—they have just the right amount of stretch to be supportive and stylish. For my body, I personally look for designs that are high-waisted, cropped, and flared, and so for me, this pair is perfection. Plus, I’m not quite ready to let go of summer whites just yet, so it ticks all the boxes. As the weather gets cooler, though, every autumn capsule should also include a pair of fail-safe dark-wash denim jeans. Along with the denim jacket, my wardrobe would not be complete without them—they are a staple you can wear dressed up or down.

Layering and mixing shades and colours are what really transform denim from boring basics into the interesting components of a refined everyday look. I love wearing denim rompers and shorts into autumn with a trench coat and knitwear on standby for when the weather starts to cool. Wide-leg cropped jeans are also part of my uniform, as they can be mixed and matched with vests, T-shirts, or knits depending on the weather. Throw on a jacket and some white trainers and you’re off.

Don’t tell summer, but I’ve missed layering so much. I have a real soft spot for autumnal fashion, as you can start to make outfits a bit more interesting with different components, but it’s not so cold that you’re shivering.

This outfit has to be my favourite. This will be my go-to early autumn uniform: high-waisted white jeans paired with a nude knit top and classic denim jacket to streamline the look. It can take you from your desk (at home or in the office) to dinner with friends with no change necessary. I’ll just be switching the vest with a cashmere polo neck come October.

I love this easy denim romper—it’s a perfect everyday throw-on piece that will look great on everyone. The wrap shape and waist tie are super flattering, and you can layer a leather jacket or trench coat over it as the temperatures cool. I’d even pair this with a black turtleneck and chunky boots later in the season.


This boho-inspired denim shorts and blouse look is perfect for a lazy weekend, whether on a staycation at the beach or pottering around your local area. It’s comfortable but still pretty. I’m seeing this slightly longer mom-short style everywhere at the moment as opposed to bum-grazing cut-offs, and I’m a big fan. Just add a chunky knit or blazer over the top if you need to keep warm.
