It's almost September, the weather is mostly warm, though some mornings you wake and there's a chill in the air, but your Summer wardrobe is still front and center. You're being tempted by all the new goodies at the mall or in the mags (or on the blogs) so how can you transition into Fall clothes without simply stowing your Summer things away?
Think simply and creatively. Do these two words belong in the same sentence? Let's see.
First: Think simple in terms of the basic pieces to transition with.
Jeans, leggings, walk shorts, skirts.
As you wear these bottoms into Fall, grab a sleeveless tank, and instead of adding your usual jewelry pieces, add a big scarf and wrap around your neck to CREATE glamour and sophistication. See, a simple scarf tied creatively adds Fall spice to your Summer wardrobe.
Top off your skinny jeans with a summer dress (wearing as a top) and add a blazer.
Voila, Summer meets Fall.
Or instead of wearing sandals, wear a sparkly ballet flat (all the rage) or boot instead.
Walk shorts: Add a lightweight jacket or denim jacket from last year's Fall clothes you already have.
Wear with closed toed shoes or clogs.
Wear your darker colored summer pieces and put away the lighter ones. These will look more like Fall, even if they're not.
Wear your summer dress with a pair of cowboy boots.
Wear a little more makeup on eyes or lips, or both.
There you have it. A few simple and creative ways to walk from Summer right into Fall. Easy.
