Just because those long summer days are quickly giving way to cool fall evenings does not have mean that your entire summer wardrobe has seen its last days. Before you bid your favorite sundress or tank top farewell until next year or unpack that all purpose cable knit sweater, below are some helpful ways that you can take some of your key summer pieces and turn them into wearable and not to mention fashionable fall outfits.
A sundress is a handy staple that belongs in every woman’s summer line-up. Versatile in that it can just as easily be worn over a swimsuit on the way to the beach or be paired with bold jewelry and sandals just in time for dinner are major reasons why this piece is an obvious choice for those short on time but still need to look pulled together. Taking your favorite sundress into fall can be easy when you add one or all of the following to your outfit. Pair a well tailored denim jacket to your dress to create a structured look even when worn over the most billowy of dresses. Also, consider pairing leggings with sundresses that are a bit on the shorter side. That short dress can now be worn more like a stylish tunic that will take you from day to evening effortlessly. A slouchy boot also makes a statement with leggings when flip flops just won’t do the trick.
On a hot day, a camisole can be a girl’s best friend but as the seasons change so does the function of this piece. Camisoles as well as tank tops are perfect for layering and adding texture around the neckline. For example, a light weight cardigan worn over a delicate camisole adds just a touch of detail without adding unnecessary bulk to your outfit. A fitted blazer and dark washed jeans will also do your trusty camisole justice when taking this item from summer to fall
There are about as many variations of the Capri pant as there are places to wear them. How can you take these notoriously comfortable and casual pants into fall? Ballerina flats are fun and look great with casual khaki Capri pants while pairing a pump with a more structured pant will instantly make your outfit business appropriate. Three quarter length light weight sweaters and jackets also work well when transitioning this summer favorite into fall.
