Summer to Fall Wardrobe Transition

Summer Look

With summer coming to a close, the days are getting colder and the nights are getting longer. Apart from beach trips ending and fewer pool days, the hardest thing about summer ending is transitioning your wardrobe into fall. This is why it is really important to buy pieces that are usable for multiple seasons. This includes layering pieces like button down oxfords and light cardigans.

In these shots, I am showing a summer to fall look. Obviously, this look can be dressed down or up. The summer look, which includes a J. Crew skirt and polka dot Madewell top, is perfect for a date or night out on the town. When a cardigan and fedora hat is added, the look can be worn for day during the fall. Mixing patterns, in this case polka dots and floral, is trending in magazines and shows everywhere. When mixing patterns, be sure that a common element ties them other. This could be as simple as relating colors or contrasting negative space. Also, it’s okay not to match... like most things, opposites do attract. Try a stripe with camo or a floral with tye-dye. To pull the fall look together, grab your favorite pair of booties. Booties can be your best friend during the fall and winter as they add another level of chic to your outfit!
