Cooler nights are ahead (for those of us in season changing climates) leaving us in the predicament of what to wear in that in-between time. Heres how to transition your closet from summer to fall in just 9 ways that won’t break the bank:
1. Don't put away your Sundresses...yet
Add a jean jacket and a tee shirt underneath your sundress. Swap out the sandals for canvas sneakers or cute trainers. Add brassy jewelry.
2. Maxi Dress
Add a knit button up sweater to your Maxi Dress. Since Maxi dresses are long and flowy, adding a shapely element will not also add layers, but give you a waist. Swap the sandals for canvas sneakers or trainers or add booties.
Jumpsuits/Overalls/Rompers were popular again in Summer 2018. Add a blazer or shapely cotton jacket. The key with layers are the clothing materials and also having one shapely piece.
Wear them under dress and skirts, the key again, is material matching. There are many different types of tights with different designs and colors. You can find a pair for any occasion.
5. Go Darker
Swap out Neon’s or bright colors for more Jewel toned colors. That will make anything that you are wearing more fall-ish. Even a sundress.
6. Darker Makeup
Wear a darker hue of lipstick and blush- this will automatically make anything that you are wearing look more fall-ish (unless you are wearing neon clothing lol). Cherry hued eyeshadow is also the perfect eyeshadow transition between summer- fall/ fall – winter.
7. The Boyfriend Shirt
Take his (or hers) button down- aka the “boyfriend shirt”. Layering with a button down provides warmth and also a nice flavor to your outfit. An instant cabin feeling.
8. The Cardigan
Invest in a new cardigan that you can throw on and off. Target sells quality and affordable cardigans. Instead of opting for black, try gray or tan. Both colors are neutral and work with almost everything.
Some fall days are almost as warm as summer. Use a lightweight scarf to keep you warm on the days were the weather is shifting in between. It will also add a pop of color to your outfit.
