we all know florals for spring isn’t groundbreaking news. at least according to miranda priestly! but florals for fall? yes, please. especially since florals for fall is on-trend. that’s right, florals big and small are here to stay for the duration of fall.
fall hasn’t quite arrived to athens, but it’s just around the corner. the humidity has dropped, and while it’s still hot as hades, i’m looking for outfits that i can wear in the waning weeks of summer and easily restyle and retool so that they’re wearable in the fall too.
transition outfits are key to any wardrobe. whether we’re heading from summer into fall or fall into spring—outfit restyling is not only practical but extremely economical. so, next time you’re in the market for a new dress in august, ask yourself whether you can layer a jacket on top of it and wear it in october. not only does that take (some of) the thinking out of looking good, but it’s easy on the purse too—which is never a bad thing. like florals for fall.
in that spirit, i’ve chosen a simple flutter-sleeve dress with a black and white floral print from my all-time favorite designer Ralph Lauren. the dress is perfectly patterned for both late summer and fall. remember? it’s all about florals for fall. but i couldn’t resist adding a pop of color with a red handbag from Tory Burch.
but if fall comes early in your neck of the woods, don’t hesitate to throw on a jacket or pair of riding boots and head out the door. because summer is still going strong here in athens, i’ve chosen a pair of slingback suede wedge espadrilles. not only do they pair perfectly with this floral dress, but tread lightly, and you’ll be able to pull them back out in spring.
all right, gang. with labor day behind us, let’s all take our collective breath before the holiday season is upon us. enjoy the last light of the fading summer sun. and don’t forget florals for fall is an easy way to transition to fall.
