happy sunday, gang! can you believe it’s Labor Day weekend? i know i’ve said it before but where has summer 2020 disappear so quickly? it’s been the longest of summers and the shortest. but before long my favorite fashion season will be knocking on our door. so it’s time to think about transitioning our outfits from summer to fall. today, i’m sharing 5 easy pieces to transition from summer to fall. but i will also share three style tips that keep us looking stylish on the shoulder season.
here are five pieces that transition with ease from summer to fall.
go back to the basics. what are the basics? well, the basics aren’t glamorous. they don’t grab your attention when you step into your favorite store. there are no ruffles, bows, or sequins attached. but i promise, if you want to be well dressed or look effortlessly chic you have to build your wardrobe with the basics. and you can never have too many wardrobe staples. these are the pieces that easily transition from outfit to outfit and span the seasons. the more basics you have on hand, the more outfit options available. so think white tees, black sweaters, white denim, black pants, or chinos.
when you take the time to invest in the basics, you are laying a foundation for a functional wardrobe that will prepare you for anything. and who doesn’t want that?
a neutral color palette will help ease your outfits from one season to the next. nude, black, grey, white, olive, navy or burgundy are all good choices. don’t get me wrong, i love pops of color all year long. but when it’s time to transition from summer to fall or fall to winter neutrals are your best friend.
add a third layer. while i love summer and lightweight clothes that are necessary to beat the heat when it comes to fickle temperatures a third layer will come in handy. whether you choose a lightweight jacket, blazer, or cotton cardigan a third layer will keep you looking chic and keep the chill at bay.
