7 Smart Ways to Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall
Summer days are getting shorter and fall is right around the corner.
While summer may be our favorite season, it doesn't mean we don't try to carry that positive, joyful and carefree mindset all year-long.
With the cooler, crisper mornings, it does mean you'll need to make some adjustments to your wardrobe and enjoy all that the fall has to offer.
However, transitioning your wardrobe from summer to the fall doesn't mean packing away your favorite summer pieces. It's about finding creative ways to incorporate them into your fall outfits.
Here are our 7 top ways to seamlessly transition your wardrobe from summer to fall, allowing you to stay stylish and comfortable no matter the weather.
1 - Layering is Key
Layering is the key to a successful summer-to-fall wardrobe transition. Start with your summer essentials, such as your favorite sundresses or lightweight tops, and layer them with cozy button up cardigans and knit sweaters, or chic blazers. This not only keeps you warm but also adds depth and texture to your outfits. Play with contrasting colors and mix fabrics to create visually appealing ensembles.
2 - Denim Staples
Denim is a year-round staple, making it perfect for bridging the gap between seasons. Pair your breezy summer tops with your go-to jeans or denim skirts. As the temperatures drop, consider pairing with denim jackets or oversized chambray shirts as outer layers. These pieces effortlessly infuse a touch of autumn into your look.
3 - Basic Tights and Leggings
Extend the life of your favorite summer dresses and skirts by incorporating tights or leggings underneath. Not only do they add warmth, but they also bring a fun, unexpected element to your outfit. Opt for opaque tights in autumnal hues like deep burgundy, black or brown to channel the fall vibe.
4 - Versatile Footwear
Trade in your summer sandals for ankle boots, loafers, and closed-toe shoes, like our Paisley sneakers! These footwear options not only provide extra warmth but also add a sophisticated touch to your outfits. Sneakers, like our Paisleys, in particular, are incredibly versatile and can be paired with dresses, skirts, jeans, and more.
5 - Accessorize Well
Accessories can make a significant difference in transitioning your wardrobe. Swap out your lightweight linen scarves for chunkier wool scarves. Experiment with wide-brimmed hats, beanies, and leather gloves to enhance your fall aesthetic. Don't forget to incorporate statement jewelry that complements the warmer color palette of the season. We love gold jewelry with pops of jewel toned hues, some of our favorites are from Kendra Scott and Gorjana.
6 - Earth-Toned Palette
Fall is synonymous with earthy hues like deep browns, warm oranges, purples and rich greens. Integrate these colors into your outfits for an instant autumnal feel. Mix and match these shades with your existing summer pieces to create outfits that effortlessly capture the essence of fall.
7 - Chic Outerwear
Invest in a few versatile outerwear pieces that can be layered over your ensembles. A classic trench coat, a tailored leather jacket, or a quilted vest are excellent choices. These outer layers not only provide warmth but also lend a polished and sophisticated touch to your overall look.
