tips for transitioning into fall…

one of the areas where i get the most questions from friends and clients…what to wear during those transitional days…when we are clearly into fall…but the weather still feels like summer…or perhaps it is not as warm as summer…but definitely not cold enough to be pulling out the thick sweaters…

here are a few tips that might help you as you transition out your summer wear for fall…one of the first areas i always say to look at…is the current wardrobe…while all of your summer wear may not be able to transition…some of it may still work with just a few tweaks…
start off by looking at your summer printed dresses and skirts…think about swapping out your sandals…and add a hefty bootie to the ensemble…add a darker color cardigan…or scarf…and you have updated your summer dress to fall…another great tip…think of adding a long sleeve thin layering tee underneath the dress…this will even work with some of your strapless dresses…
speaking of booties…time to swap out all your summer lightweight & strappy sandals…a look can be updated to fall…just by your shoes…think of heavier footwear…a peep toe shoe…perhaps a nice pair of oxfords or brogues…or even a smoking slip…all nice addition’s to your fall wardrobe…
colored denim is still high on the list for fall…think of deeper, richer hues…and leave your pale numbers for next year…walking shorts and capri’s are still wearable…but watch out for color…go for darker hues…perhaps a nice blue, hunter green or burgundy…
accessories…a biggie…add in some beautiful scarves…adding in just the right touch of colors…while keeping your neck warm from the brisk fall air…take a look at your handbags as well…look for darker hues…doesn’t necessarily need to be black or brown…but a stronger color then what summer/spring usually represents…
black & white is still a great “go-to” combination…yes…white is acceptable after labor day…just keep in mind what fabric content your whites are…linens should be stored away…
stock up on cotton & silk cardigans…a great way to layer an outfit…and keep you warm enough…or cool enough…whatever the weather dictates…
and don’t forget about your lip and nail color…fall is about darker hues…
take inspiration from beautiful fall leaves…great colors to work with…and your transition into fall should be a piece of cake…
