In between seasons can be kind of tricky when it comes to getting dressed.
But just because the temperature is dropping, doesn’t mean you have to switch over your seasonal wardrobe right away or go out and drop a ton of cash on a new wardrobe!
There are so many season-neutral pieces nowadays, that transitioning those Summer pieces into the Fall really just comes down to getting a little creative.
So today I want to share with you some of my favourite ways to make some of your Summer staples work for the Fall.
Yes, white jeans are a Summer staple, but they can be worn into the Fall (even the Winter).
It all comes down to how you style them.
Those skinny white jeans you wore with sandals and a tank top in the Summer can now make the transition into Fall by adding other soft neutrals like grey, tan, caramel, and denim.
One of my fave Fall looks is pairing my skinny white jeans with a denim shirt, faux fur vest, and ankle boots.
The key here is layering.
Sundresses are obviously made of lighter weight fabrics, so to make them look appropriate for Fall you just need to add more depth and weight with layers.
So, start with a cute jacket…
A leather jacket works if the dress is in a darker colour. If it’s lighter coloured dress though, go for a jean jacket.
Then of course, when it’s cooler, you’ll need some tights. If you’re feeling daring, some textured or coloured tights will add some extra personality to the outfit.
Then finish it off with a pair of cute heels or boots. Voila!
Yes, there are ways to do this no matter what your age (of course, keep your body shape and personal style in mind as well).
For example, someone in their 20’s might do it with a printed short, coloured or textured pair of tights, graphic t-shirt, a long cardigan, and open toed booties.
Whereas a woman in her forties may wear them with a pair of opaque tights, a blouse, blazer, and more conservative footwear.
The key with this of course is to make sure the shorts are a dressier cut and in a heavier Fall appropriate fabric.
So, there you have it – a few different ideas for you on how to wear 3 different Summer staples into the Fall!
Hopefully this has you looking at your Summer clothes in a whole new light and thinking about other pieces you have that could transition into the Fall.
