You know that time of year when it’s cold in the morning, but by noon, it feels like you’re in the desert? A tee won’t work because you’ll be freezing, but a sweater is a no-go unless you want to sweat. So what are we supposed to wear during this in-between-seasons period? Here are some tips for transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall!
Add a Top Layer
This one is so easy. First, put together a typical summer outfit – maybe a sundress or some shorts and a tee. Then add a denim jacket or cardigan. Remove it when temperatures start to heat up.
Don’t Sleep on Maxis
Maxi skirts and dresses are your friends in unpredictable temperatures! They will cover your legs for warmth in the morning and can be tied into a chic knot for more airflow when it gets hot. They are also easy to layer. Try pairing your maxi dress with a leather or denim jacket to transform from summer to fall in the blink of an eye!
Pair Your Neutrals With Animal Prints
Start with a simple look like a pair of jeans and a solid V-neck tee, then add a leopard print belt and shoes. The tan shade in these accessories gives off major fall vibes. Finish off with a cardigan in rust orange, olive green, or mustard yellow.
Team Up With Fall Textures and Print
What are fall textures or prints? They include knits, camo, corduroy, gingham, plaid, gold, and leather. You can pair items from your closet in these prints or textures with your summer outfits to make them more suitable for fall. For example, try wearing a flannel over a tank and shorts, corduroy pants with your favorite summer tee, or a tan leather jacket over a floral sundress.
Swap Some Shoes
It almost seems too easy, but sometimes all it takes to bring an outfit from summer to fall is a shoe change! Pack away the sandals and bring out your boots and booties for an instant season upgrade.
It can be tough to make the right call on an outfit as the seasons change, but these transitional wardrobe tips can help you stay comfortable and stylish all at the same time.
