How to Transition Summer Clothes into Fall

The weather between the summer and fall seasons can be tricky. Mornings are cool and breezy then get warmer as the day goes on. It’s so confusing because one moment it feels like sweater weather then the next moment I’m still wearing shorts and tanks. Mother Nature needs to figure out if she wants us sipping hot chocolate or mojitos.

Around this time is when we begin to transition summer clothes into fall looks. It mays seem hard but it isn’t at all. With just a few items, you can prolong the life of your summer dresses and other items.

Blazer

Cotton On & Co. Plaid Boyfriend Blazer $26.97, nordstromrack.com

I was OBSESSED with blazers when I was in college. Blazers make it easy to elevate a look; throwing one on over a t-shirt and jeans made me feel slightly more dressed up. As a broke college student, most of my blazers came from the thrift store.They provide enough coverage and are light enough so you’re not sweating buckets when the afternoon rolls around.

Tights

Women’s Solid Cotton Blend Fleece Lined Full Tight $12, target.com

No one, including me, hates walking outside and ending up with freezing legs. Wear tights underneath your fave sundresses or miniskirts to prevent them from getting cold. To make it fun, purchase a few pairs of colored/patterned tights to match.

Long Sleeves

Women’s Long Sleeve Sweetheart Collar T-Shirt $9, target.com

One thing I suggest is purchasing them in packs, if possible, for unlimited layering opportunities. Long sleeved shirts are great because they pair well underneath or on top of anything involving(or not) straps.

Sweaters

Crazy Stripe Mockneck Pullover Sweater $79.95, gap.com

We all like to be comfy and cozy, right? I have an old Gap sweater from high school I can’t get rid of. It’s fitted so I like to wear it under jackets. Sweaters, whether fitted or slouchy, can be worn on top of your summer maxi’s with a belt to highlight the waist. Another option besides sweaters are the classic cardigan. Oversized pieces are still in style

Boots

Made In Brazil Suede Over The Knee Boots by Matisse $99.99, tjmaxx.com

This shoe can be worn for majority of the year depending on the occcasion. Boots complete any outfit from festival season to early-Spring temps. At this very moment, I’m on the hunt for a pair of over-the-knee boots to wear with my jeans and sweaters. Elongate and make your legs look 10x longer by matching them to tights.

 

What are some things you wear when it gets cold to give new life to your summer clothes?
