Posted August 23 2019
Fall is coming! Not ready to abandon your summer wardrobe? We've got you covered. Read on to learn how to transition it to fall.
The summer is coming to an end and hot cups of coffee and orange leaves are soon to take over. Whether you've felt the crispness of cooler air on your nose yet or not, it's coming. Fall is almost here and coming with it is a wide variety of trendy Fall fashions.
Yet as excited as we are to welcome Fall and the cooler weather that it has to bring, we're not quite ready to let go of summer and all of our wonderful summer outfits that we've put together. It seems like the season went by a little too fast and we're longing to keep our summer trends going just a little bit longer. Fortunately, if you feel the same way we do, there's an answer!
Follow these inspirational ideas listed below on how to transition your Summer wardrobe into your Fall one! And always remember that Summer is a state of mind!
Men Fashion Transitions
Finding Summer to Fall transition pieces for men can sometimes be daunting. It's not always easy to find ways to stay warm but not too warm! This becomes even more difficult for those living in areas where the daytime weather might still be hot, while the evening brings cooler temperatures. New Englanders know this all too well, and have spent years perfecting the transitional wardrobe musts.
Here are some men fashion transitions from Summer to Fall.
Oxford Shirts From Night to Day
A trendy Plaid shirt is a must-have item for men during the Summer/Fall months. Select one that displays more fall-like colors such as blues, yellows, or deep oranges. This type of shirt is the perfect item to have when the daytime is still a bit hot as the shirt doesn't constrict airflow.
As the sun goes down and the breeze starts to cool, your Oxford shirt then transitions into the perfect long-sleeve top to keep you warm! Match this shirt with a pair of fall-colored bottoms and you're ready to transition into the season.
Vest Over Plaid Button-Up Shirt
As summer nears its end, plaid designs begin to make their appearance once again. Choose a light and airy plaid button-up shirt and place a vest over it. The plaid design is perfect for the end of summer and a nice button-up won't overheat you if it's still hot outside.
Your vest can be thrown on when the sun goes down and it gets a bit cooler. This is a great way to add a little touch of fashion sense to your look. The ideal Fall Vest has a soft, warm fleece interior, and a wind-stopping exterior shell. Pick a bright pop of red, or a basic like navy to go with any outfit. Sherpa style fleece is definitely the hottest trend of the past few years, and we love it in Vest form.
The Trendy Fall Cardigan
If you don't own a cardigan, now is the time to invest in one. Don’t be turned off by the Mister Rogers vibes the word “Cardigan” conjours. A Fall cardigan is a great way to stay warm, stay cool, and stay trendy. Let us explain: the cardigan sweater is lightweight and chic. It is the easiest sweater to wear as you can throw it on, and remove it quickly to accommodate weather changes.
A light brown or beige or oatmeal color is the perfect way to transition from summer to fall. The colors work well for both seasons and you won't risk comfort when wearing this stylish sweater. Pick a chunky weave, classic cable knit, or some old-school-prep horn buttons to fit your personal tastes.
Women’s Fall Transitions
For women, transitioning from Summer to Fall is a bit easier as women are able to take their summer outfits and simply add an element here or there to complete a Fall look. And if you're located in an area where it's hot during the day and cool during the evening, all you have to do is simply switch out your shoes or throw on a jacket!
Here are some women’s fashion transitions from Summer to Fall.
Sundress With Boots
We know how much you love your sundresses and no, you don't have to part with them just yet. Take your favorite maxi dress, your least favorite maxi dress, and all those in between and compliment them with a pair of boots. If it's still hot during the day, you can rock your flip-flops until it gets cooler.
Once the cold starts to hit, switch in your boots. Your boots will help keep your otherwise exposed legs warm. Ankle length booties work best with Maxi or Boho style dresses. Knee length boots will work best with a slimmer fitting dress or skirt of shorter lengths.
Shorts or Skirt With Tights
For some of us, our entire wardrobe consists of shorts and skirts and very little pants. Luckily, there's a way to transition your shorts and skirts into the Fall. Simply place a pair of tights on underneath, and you're good to go!
You may need to consider switching out your Summer shoes for your Fall shoes to complete this look. But hey, at least you get to wear your shorts and skirts for a little bit longer!
Leather or Jean Jackets On Top of a Dress
Just like the love you have for shorter sundresses, that love pours over onto the passion you have for wearing maxi dresses. Again, you don't have to part with your dresses just yet.
Rock your maxi dress as-is during the day time and when it gets cooler out, throw on a leather jacket! This look is super stylish and easy to put together. It's a great accessory to transition a Summer outfit into a Fall one, and all through the Winter months.
Denim Jackets have also become a very popular again - proving that all old fashion trends come back again! Pick a denim wash that suits your style, add some fun patches to jazz it up, and roll up the sleeves for a put-together look.
