You may be sad to see summer go (aren’t we all?), but the end of beach trips and summer Fridays does have a few perks. The biggest one? A new season’s the perfect excuse to create a brand new wardrobe. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to buy a brand new wardrobe. Instead, you can simply take some of summer’s MVPs, add a new fall piece or two, and create cooler-weather outfits to get you through the first few weeks (or months) of fall.
Need help getting started? We’ve picked out some of our favorite summer staples below (which you might have already received from Wantable or have hanging in your closet), then added five new fall styles—all of which you can get by ordering one of our Style Edits.
You own this: Denim shorts
Now add this: A lightweight sweater
If you’re the kind of girl who lived in denim shorts all summer long, no need for distress (pun intended): Just transition them to fall with the help of a lightweight sweater. Our Felton Ribbed Sweater is perfect for wearing solo in September or layering over a tee or under a jacket when it gets a little cooler. Throw it on with shorts and sneakers for the perfect early-fall weekend look while you’re out running errands. Request this look in your next Style Edit.
You own this: A striped tank
Now add this: A faux-leather jacket
Going sleeveless may have been your M.O. when 90-degree days were the norm, but once the temps start to dip, slip on a sleek faux-leather jacket to take on fall. We love the rich hue of this version, which looks even more autumn-ready when you swap shorts for skinny jeans and sandals for heeled booties. Request this look in your next Style Edit.
You own this: An off-the-shoulder top
Now add this: Skinny jeans
Show off sun-kissed shoulders for as long as possible by pairing your cutest off-the-shoulder top with skinny jeans (this super-skinny distressed version is our favorite). Add a printed scarf for days when you need a little extra warmth, or throw on a statement necklace and lace-up heels for an easy date-night look. Request this look in your next Style Edit.
You own this: A sundress
Now add this: A jean jacket
Dress: Sleeveless Handkerchief Dress | Jacket:Amelia Jean Jacket
Chances are you have at least a dozen summer sundresses hanging in your closet—and the first signs of fall are no reason to put them into storage. Instead, toss a jean jacket over your shoulders and add open-toe mules for an effortlessly chic ensemble. A darker wash keeps the outfit looking polished, while a lighter wash lends it a laid-back vibe.
You own this: A graphic tee
Now add this: A plaid shirt
A classic plaid button-down, graphic tee, and denim shorts combine for the perfect between-seasons style. Keep your plaid shirt unbuttoned for an easily layered look, and switch out your shorts for slim denim once autumn kicks into high gear. Request this look in your next Style Edit.
