It’s always sad when the weather gets cooler and you have to put away all your light, breezy dresses, but fall comes with its own benefits – cozy sweaters, cute layers, and your favorite pair of jeans are all back in season!
Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean you have to put away all your summer clothes quite yet. Here are some quick and easy ways to take your wardrobe from summer to fall.
Love Your Layers
Layering is one of the best parts of autumn because it adds so much dimension to your look! The only problem is that heavy sweaters or multiple layers can make you look bulky or frumpy. Keep it simple and sleek when adding layers.
If you aren’t ready to put away your summer shorts, trywearing them with warm tights and boots. Or throw a flannel on over your favorite t-shirt for a laid-back, relaxed look that is still trendy and cool.
Using Texture Right
Mix up your textures when layering. Wear a loose knit sweater over a tight, sleek pair of pants to show off your slim legs.
Designer Ryan Rochte recommendspairing a knit sweater with a sheer, lacy skirt. This is a great way to play with texture and is sure to create a unique, interesting look.
Knitwear is comfortable, warm enough for the fall, and breezy enough for an autumn day. A great sweater can add that essential element to an otherwise simple outfit while still looking comfy and casual.
Keep Your Skirt On
Crisp fall air doesn’t mean you have to ditch your summer skirts! Tights can take a simple skirt from casual to formal, especially when paired with high heels or your cutest booties.
Tunic tops saw a renaissance this summer, with hippie-throwback style in the spotlight at festivals and on racks. No need to hang up the daisy crown, flower child — Although these are great on their own in the summer, tunic topspair very well with thick leggings or cigarette jeans.
A blazer adds an interesting menswear twist to an otherwise feminine dress. Little contrasts like this bring some intrigue to your outfit and ensure your look stays unique and fresh.
Embrace The Season
It’s always hard to say goodbye to summer. After a season of baking-hot weather and afternoons by the pool, it feels strange to put on pants.
Just keep in mind that this is a fashion opportunity. You can finally pull your favorite boots out of storage and break out the leather jacket!
Whether you are cozy by the fireplace, getting ready for a new school year, or even preparing for snowy days, fall is a beautiful season and a great excuse to update your wardrobe!
