11 Easy Tips To Transition Summer Clothing Into Fall
Fall is my favorite time of the year and while I love everything that comes along with this time of the year (the pumpkins, the brisk mornings, the colorful leaves, the apple cider for example) I don’t like immediately packing away all of my summer clothes. Fortunately by adding in some fall staples I can extend the time I get to spend with my favorite summer dresses and tees by a couple months. Below are my 11 tips for transitioning summer clothing into fall.

ONE // Layer Up. Use knits, jackets, and blazers to wear over your favorite summer shirts and dresses, such as throwing a sweater over a sundress. Or take the opposite approach and layer a long sleeved top under a dress. My favorites for layering under are chambrays, white button ups, and solid color tees. An important tip for layering under is to make sure the top is thin so it doesn’t make your dress appear bulky.

TWO // Stock up on tights and leggings. Tights and leggings are an important fall staple to cover up bare legs. Wear them under shorts, dresses, and skirts.

THREE // Switch out your accessories. Change out your current statement necklaces for faux fur stoles, straw fedoras to knitted beanies, and brightly hued handbags for rich suede or beautifully jewel tone bags.

FOUR // Change your color palette. Some summer colors just don’t transition very well into fall so pack away everything that isn’t a jewel shade, a neutral, or a darker shade. Same rule applies to florals. While you can continue wear florals in fall they need to be darker.

FIVE // Don’t forget the importance of structure. Fashion in fall has a lot more structure than the loose, flowy pieces that dominate in summer so stick with structured bags, tailored pants, and structured dresses and skirts.

SIX // Add leather. Leather and summer often just do not mix but taking a simple step of adding a leather moto jacket over a graphic tee or a favorite summer dress instantly makes it fall ready.

SEVEN // Update your footwear. Switch out sandals for pumps and boots, especially ankle boots that go with everything.

EIGHT // Remember the versatility of denim. Denim jackets, chambrays, and jeans work in summer and fall.

NINE // Look for basics. When evaluating which summer pieces for items to keep out for fall look for basics and items that can be easily layered.

TEN // Stock up on scarves. Scarves are one of the ultimate layer pieces. Use light pashminas in early fall and switch to chunky knits when the temperatures drop.

ELEVEN // Be prepared. It is the worst to be away from home and end up freezing. Always keep a jacket or an extra layer on hand.
