It’s almost autumn and while it might be plenty balmy outside right now, the chill comes to Asia with all the grace of a plummeting elevator so it’s important to be kitted out for the season ahead.

It’s also a fairly wet transition into the dry winter so you’ll need footwear that doesn’t mind the rain and clothing that can breathe while also protecting you from the elements. 

At the end of the day, it’s all about your personal style and also where in Asia you call home but here’s a little inspiration.
