Do we detect a chill in the air? September weather has us swapping our morning cold brews for steaming lattes and sending summer’s breezy favorites to the back of our closets in favor of cozier layers. However, fall’s arrival doesn’t call for a complete summer wardrobe banishment. It’s time for an update, not an overhaul. Here are three summer-to-fall outfits to easily navigate the seasonal style transition like a pro.
Take your ultra-femme blouses of summer into the fall season by wearing them with more androgynous styles like straight-leg denim and a striped sweater for layering. The unexpected combo feels transitional and is far more interesting than pairing either piece with a basic. Whether you’re at the office or on-the-go, this polished look is a no-brainer for the new season.
Keep those sundresses at the front of your closet by layering them with cardigans, shackets, or a long sleeve button down top. Pairing dresses with fall tops makes for the perfect effortless look. Whether you’re off to brunch, a wine tasting, or a bonfire. Dresses with an added layer are the perfect go-to for any occasion!
The New Denim
This summer, skinny jeans with raw hems and eye-catching details were essential in every closet. For fall, it’s time to invest in more retro silhouettes like a flare or bootcut. The throwback style looks amazing when paired with a cozy sweater and chunky boots. Added bonus: this denim shape flatters every. single. body type. You can count on them to instantly elongate your frame for a legs-for-days kind of look.
Take the easy, essential tees you’ve been rocking with white skinnies or shorts all summer and pair them with patterned denim and a utility jacket. Animal print continues to be a trend that isn’t going anywhere this fall. Play up the pattern and texture by adding a pop of color and you’ve got a totally autumnal look.
