Fall is coming! There are a lot of reasons why this season is the most popular of the four. There's the cool weather, the beautiful tree leaves, the pumpkin spice lattes, and most importantly, the fashion!
Fall fashion is traditionally warm, comfy, and oh-so-cute. But it's also often a far cry from what most people wear during the sweltering summer. Have you been having a hard time transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall? Don't worry. You don't have to shove your shorts and sandals into the back of your closet just yet! Here are three tips for transitioning summer clothing to fall.
Fall weather can be really unpredictable. One day, it's nice, warm, and clear outside, and the next, it's cold, cloudy, rainy. Make sure to check the weather when you wake up in the morning, so you don't get taken by surprise when you walk out your front door!
On warm days, you can wear your summer clothes, but we recommend wearing a jacket around your shoulders or your waist just in case the temperature suddenly drops.
When it’s chilly, you need layers! To keep the cold away, wear multiple layers—an undershirt, a shirt, a cardigan, jacket, sweater, and on especially cold days, a hat, scarf, and mittens.
Accessories Are a Must
It's easy to throw on a jacket when you're cold, but it's also just as easy to slip on a hat, gloves, scarf, wrap, or a pair of tights when you get dressed in the morning. Accessories can make your fall outfits much cuter and so much more functional.
Wool and silk are good material choices for scarves, and merino wool beanies can keep your head comfy. If you don't want to use animal products, you can also find faux and vegan versions of virtually all these materials!
Don't forget shoes, either. We might see them as an essential part of every outfit, but most consider them an accessory. On warmer days, you can still wear your sandals. On colder days, opt for warm booties or casual sneakers with thick socks.
Warm Color Schemes
Another tip for transitioning summer clothing to fall is to incorporate warmer colors. Summer is more of a cool color season. Vibrant blues and greens are reminiscent of a tropical beach. For fall, warm shades such as yellow, red, and orange are staples. These colors are earthy and mimic the gradual change of the trees.
You don't have to exclude cool colors from your wardrobe completely, but try to reserve them as an undertone or accent instead of making them the focal point of your outfit.
