Now that the days are getting cooler (for some of us), and the kids are back to school, we’re slowly beginning the transition to the new season. But it doesn’t always happen seamlessly. It’s not like one day you wake up and everything is set in stone for fall, but it’s definitely a transgression of understanding new trends, picking what you like, and of course, working with the weather to start incorporating the full switch to fall fashion. Today we’re discussing some summer trends that you can make work into the beginning of fall and how to blend new and old styles so you don’t have to break the bank right away to continue being a fashionista.
A favorite is taking that maxi dress you lived in all summer and adding a few simple accessories to make it into a brand new outfit. Even if it’s in a bright summer tone like coral, blue, or a floral print, by adding a neutral colored blazer, belt, and or scarf you can create a whole new feeling.
Keep your summer accessories alive! Even though your beach tote is named specifically for a summer activity, you can pair it with an outfit that has darker hues for a more dynamic look. For instance, a light toned straw tote, looks great with a black outfit.
Clearly it’s all about mixing the trends. Work your favorite colored jeans from spring and fall well into October by mixing them with another neutral. Here’s four celebs with popping pants that managed to look totally in place for fall. Take after them and mix with neutrals, dark colors, and more structured tops.
Finally, a tan is never out of style! But do it smartly of course (no tanning beds, and lots of SPF!!) Although it’s still possible to catch some rays in the fall months depending on your location, many beauty and fashion related sites will create awesome lists like this to help you find products to extend that summer glow.
Fall fashion can be so much fun to play with, but don’t feel like you have to jump in all at once! By learning a few simple tricks and investing in some great accessories (who doesn’t love a good scarf?), you can easily multiply the outfits you already have in your closet.
