How to Easily Transition Your Wardrobe From Summer Style to Fall Fashion
Fall is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean your summer wardrobe has to immediately change with the season. I know, I know…. most of you have probably been waiting for boot season and comfy sweaters, but before your wardrobe completely falls into a dark abyss, you may want to consider layering summer with fall fashion.
Why would you do that? Well, incorporating some of your summer staples into your fall fashion fair may be just the thing needed to keep things interesting. Color doesn’t have to pop solely in the warmer months. Yet, one of the first things we do once it starts getting cooler and darker is gravitate toward dark colored clothing. I’m not sure the reason, but it happens like clockwork. When autumn comes around we start incorporating more brown. When winter comes around we’re decked out in black (unless you live in the north east and that may be your attire year round). But seriously, there’s no need for your wardrobe to die along with the vegetation.
Instead, here are a few tips to make a smoother, less dull, transition into fall fashion:
- Pair a colorful bottom with a less colorful, more muted top.
- Pull darker colors out of a print by pairing with one of the darker colors in the print (i.e. floral top with blue pencil skirt).
- Floral prints can be worn year round. Re-accessorize with darker shoes, a darker blazer or jacket, or jewelry in more earthy tones.
- Use a denim jacket, chambray top, or jeans as the backdrop to a more colorful piece. Denim resonates well any season, especially fall fashion trends.
