While the cool weather still seems a bit far off, fall weather and fashion are going to be here before we know it. But how do we make the transition easier on our pocketbook?
The key to transitioning your wardrobe from summer into fall is layering. With a little planning, you can really maximize the pieces you already have. Or in you are in the mood, you can shop wisely and add just a few new goodies to spice up the outfits you wear already!
- The Sleeveless Dress That sleeveless dress you have been living in since Memorial Day? When the weather starts to turn cool, you can throw a cardigan or a blazer over that tried and true favorite.
- The Tailored shorts Tailored shorts and flowing linen blouse looked great for that get-together over the Fourth of July. Opaque tights add a layer of warmth without compromising the look.
- The Tunic Dress Tunic dresses are so airy and comfortable pre-Labor Day. But when the triple digit days are behind you, ‘airy’ can quickly turn awkward in a good fall breeze so pull on a pair of leggings for warmth and modesty.
- The Close-Toed Pumps Sometimes all it takes is swapping your open-toed sandals for a pair of close-toed pumps.
- The Lightweight Sweater You can also mix and match. The summer skirt might pair well with a lightweight V-neck sweater.
- The Cropped Pants Cropped pants can carry you into fall when you add a stacked heel and a chambray shirt.
- The Leather And Lace Combination Many of us love the leather and lace combination, so even mixing fabrics can extend the timeline on your existing clothes. Try your eyelet top with your leather leggings or skirt.
- The Mixing Of Colors You can also mix and match your colors. The pale pink skirt might take on a whole new life with a navy blazer or a chocolate brown sweater.
