As summer winds down we are inevitably forced to start thinking about cooler times. However, you don’t have to start packing up all of your favorite summer pieces just yet.
Transitional dressing doesn’t have to be scary; it can actually bring out your most fashion forward and functional looks. From layering tips to how autumn-ize your summer staples, we have you covered.
Layers are your new best friend
The end of August here in Washington brings about cooler evenings, so wearing removable layers is key. From sweaters and denim jackets, to fall staples like the trench coat and parka, it’s easy to layer up. You’ll be prepared for when the rain suddenly hits and not sweaty when the blazing sun comes out again.
Accessorizing is Key
Change the entire mood of those summer florals and bright basics by adding fall accessories. Dark tights cozy up a summer dress and a moody lip gives a bright blouse new autumn life.
All About the Shoes
Simply opting for a closed toe shoe as the temperature begins to drop will keep you warmer and help your look turn with the season. You have lots of choice here! A cheeky combat boot, covered flat, cool sneaker, or even an ankle boot can begin your fall transition without much thought.
One Summer + One Fall
This equation is the answer to this season’s transition. Pairing something fall, cozy and warm with something summery, light, and cool solves it all. A chunky knitted sweater paired with your favorite mini skirt is totally a fall look when you top it off with an ankle boot and moody lip. Your favorite summer dress glides into autumn when you add fall tights and a leather jacket.
