As the seasons change, so do our wardrobes. And while you’re putting away your summer pastels, you’re probably pulling out fall sweaters, blazers, and coats. But you don’t have to put everything summery away. Here are some of our favorite transition pieces that can help you update your wardrobe for fall.
Make all your summery pieces appropriate for slightly cooler weather by tossing on a long cardigan or jardigan (a jacket cardigan hybrid). Old Navy makes it cheap and chic with pieces like this boyfriend cardi which comes in deep red, charcoal gray, navy and black.
Interesting jackets with creative silhouettes are often the key addition when you are taking summer pieces into fall; layer them over tanks and tailored shorts or lightweight dresses and you have a whole new look. This Monse polka-dot ruched silk blazer fits the bill perfectly.
Even if the temps are still high where you live, switching out your summer pastels and tropical brights for deeper tones will make all the difference in the seasonality of your look. Just exchange your lightweight skinny jeans for something like these Hudson Colbys in deep green, or swap them for your skinny jeans or shorts to turn your summer favorites into an ensemble that’s perfect for fall.
Menswear Inspired Shoes
Oxfords, loafers or brogues will read as more autumnal than your typical summer sandals or espadrilles. No one does it better than Gucci with these studded brogues that are perfect with bare legs now and then tights as the weather gets colder.
Deeper Toned Makeup
Try a plum or berry lipstick or nail polish for the new season. Adding darker shades to your makeup regimen is an autumn tradition, and it’s one of the easiest ways to update your summer pieces for fall if the weather’s still warm. Nars Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte is just about perfect and you can pick up the Very Berry set from Deborah Lippmann at Sephora for a whole range of options.
