Summer will be over before you know it, and soon will come fall. Surrounded by midwest heat and sticky humidity, our team is already looking forward to cooler weather and breezy Saturday afternoons. When this relief finally hits, it will bring with it that glorious day when you get to break out your favorite jeans and comfy sweaters. But don’t pack up your summer clothes yet! Your favorite, newly purchased trends can be extended for another few months, giving you more wardrobe options to keep looking great. Read more tips below to transition your wardrobe staples from summer to fall.
You don’t have to categorize your clothes into summer, fall, winter and spring! Why not wear your favorite pieces all year long? Yes, even summer dresses and sandals still can be worn this fall.
Bring out your scarves!
A great scarf will transition any great outfit to fall. And added bonus: they’ll keep you prepared for inconsistent weather and at any moment when temperatures begin to chill! Scarfs are an additional layer, so consider combining it with a fitted dress or top to avoid too much heavy top-bulk. Dare trying it your favorite scarf with a dress, tank or flowy top.
Sundresses – Not just for summer!
Have a favorite summer dress? No need to only bring it out May through August! Adding layers to dresses will give your look a great fall feel. Opaque tights are an easy way to add a fall twist to a shorter dresses and skirts. Or get out your tailored blazer, sweater or denim jacket to add sleeve length for chillier months. Consider coordinating your accessories to more the fall-toned colors you love, like sands and reds.
Sandals aren’t just for the beach.
Until the weather really plummets, don’t be scared to keep wearing your favorite flirty sandals! Paired with skinny jeans, sandals are a great way to ease your way into fall. (It’s not snowing yet!) Look for fall colored, strappy sandals to take the place of a wedge during more casual get-togethers or a Saturday shopping expedition. For a put together look, stick with a more fashion-forward pair and leave your beach flip-flops at home.
Colors and Patterns
Summer crops and bright-colored skinnies are here to stay! Look for a top with trendy patterns, including metallic shine and fun prints. Keep with neutral and more muted shoe choices, like nude flat or suede wedge to keep your look classic. Bold accessories can also break up your look to avoid an “oh-no” overboard moment. The countdown begins to bonfires, town festivals, movies on the couch and spiced apple cider (yum!) And with these tips, why not keep your full wardrobe available all year round? What is your favorite way to get ready for fall?
