Loungewear has emerged as the star of stay-at-home wardrobes all summer, and the demand for comfort is unlikely to slacken as the season transitions to fall. We also expect an increasing trend toward versatility. Women want easy, effortless clothing that can be worn in multiple ways. Adding versatile pieces to your closet is key to keeping a summer wardrobe functional as we dip into cooler nights.

A chic blazer, polished jeans, and comfy flats are perfect for a fall day that includes working from home and maybe some in-home teaching. When evening comes, get ready to relax and trade in the casual professional look for a cozy sweater dress.

Leaving the house for errands calls for that essential summer-to-fall wardrobe piece – the reliable cardigan. Elevate the look by pairing pants in rich materials such as faux leather with sneakers accented by on-trend metallics. And the unexpected pairing of statement sneakers with a bold leopard-print maxi dress would make at-home cocktails on the patio an event.
