TRANSITIONING TO FALL
Are you ready for layers, leaves falling, mustard jumpers and burgundy jeans with marshmallows in hot chocolate? Starbucks entered autumn early by releasing their beloved pumpkin-spiced latte late August. Fall is finally here and I know some of you are ready to switch up your wardrobe for something a bit more cozy.
Get ready for early sunsets and cool breezy nights. Depending on which end of the globe you reside, long sleeves is a proper investment for late September. But if it’s not quite cool enough for thick cardigans and leather biker jackets, you can get a stiletto in on easily transitioning your summer wardrobe to autumn style.
I listed a few items to help you transform your look into fall attire but still incorporate your summery pieces. Although you want to dress in season, I know the weather in certain areas is not quite cool enough to pull out the sweaters just yet!
Bow Tie Blouse
Who says you can’t wear white after labor day? I totally believe this is doable. Forget those invisible fashion rules and update your classic white top for something fresh. For you ladies who enjoy the masculine aspect to fashion, bow tie blouses are a cool way to give some oomph to a feminine style.
Wear this preppy look with your favorite fedora, which is the ultimate fall trend. Now how do you wear this style with a summer staple? Try your hot pink pencil pants paired with a black studded ankle boot. The long sleeves will transition the outfit into fall. Although the bright pink screams summer, the black ankle bootie will balance the look.
As denim never goes out of style, you must know this closet essential is a must for every season. No matter the type of denim, rest assured you’ll have a reason to wear it throughout the year.
Take this summer essential and enter autumn with a classic edge. No need to let your ripped jeans stay in the closet this upcoming season, just pair them with a long cardigan, favorite caged sandals or a floral bomber.
Is it too cold to wear torn denim with extra large wholes in your city? Not a problem! Wear your fishnets, opaque or colored tights underneath for a new dimension of style and an extra layer of warmth.
Summer 2016 was captivated by the emerging of bell-sleeves in festival season. Coachella attendees flaunted the flared look all summer long. Revival of the 70s silhouette is back an after the highlight during fashion week, it’s only evident we reach into our closets for the roomy sleeves again.
Bell sleeves are light and breathable yet long so you feel warm and cool at the same time, perfect for those romantic side-walk dinner date nights. This sophisticated top will allow you to wear your open-toe heels or hit the season with a new pair of Chelsea boots. The bohemian blouse will look great with a pair of ripped denim or a faux leather skirt.
Military inspired clothing always makes a statement of strength, bravery and courage. While you’re presenting a message to never give up, wear this style in the form of leggings with your favorite cropped jumper. How about a camouflage bomber jacket?
The camouflage look is full of autumn hues such as olive green, khaki, dark tan and medium gray making it the ultimate neutral that matches any color. Suitable for layering, camouflage allows you to accessorize your outfit with the utilitarian trend of sporting combat boots. Try wearing camouflage with your denim vest from summer.
In August and early September, I wore my kimonos with my t-shirt dresses or cropped tops and leggings. Kimonos are forgiving because the detailing hides muffin tops, shapes arms and covers areas you may feel uncomfortable flaunting.
With a dark floral backdrop, you’ll effortlessly take this sultry-feminine style to a night-time look. Kimonos or the long-light cardigan is another way to wear a summery style during fall. Pair with your booties, high-waist denim and tuck in your favorite statement tee and instantly you’re rocking the model off-duty style.
With tons of ways to wear your summer staples in autumn, I hope this post has encouraged you to take some of those items and wear them with a few new autumn pieces. If not, maybe this has inspired you to try something different for A/W’18.
