The temperatures are changing and fall is here! Which means it’s time to enjoy pumpkin spice everything, and overhaul our wardrobe. But who wants to spend big dollars on a new closet? We’ve rounded up three ways to transition your look from summer to fall, without breaking the bank.
Mix + Match What You Have
We all have them. The classic white tee, black long sleeved cotton top, and our favorite pair of straight legged jeans. These pieces play well year round, and you can easily mix and match them with anything. Take a peek at your closet and gauge what you wear the most, and style around it with bolder or darker colors, like plums, emeralds, browns and mustard yellows. Add a sweater to those favorite jeans, or a cute duster to that long sleeved black top, or layer your basic tee with your favorite flannel top. How about that maxi dress? No need to retire that sweet floral print just yet. Consider throwing a denim jacket over it or even a cute light scarf. Take these essentials and transform what you already have into a new look for the season.
Swap Your Shoes + Add Accessories
Nothing screams fall like a good pair of boots. Or, what about your favorite pair of ballet flats? Trade those sandals and beach shoes for closed toed options you have hiding out in your closet. Create a fall look with your go to Skinny jeans or leggings and favorite basics. Or grab that skirt or cropped pant and throw on those peep toed heels. Swapping your shoes is a cost effective way to be ready for the pumpkin patch festival days with friends and family.
Up Your Beauty Game
An easy and affordable way to transition from summer to fall, is in your beauty routine. Say goodbye to those bright nail colors and opt for neutrals, and subtle colors instead. Add a Smokey eye rich with plums or try a bolder lip with a deeper red tone instead of bright summer pink. And, don’t forget about your locks. Try a salon refresh by adding low lights or darker tones to your hair to complete your fall look. Quick, easy and simple!
The summer to fall transition can be fun and easy by repurposing what you already have and combining summer styles with your fall favorites. Don’t be afraid to play and experiment, but most of all, choose styles that are reflections of YOU. There is no right or wrong way of making a wardrobe transition, so get creative and enjoy the season.
