While many of us see September as the beginning of autumn, the temperature says definitely otherwise. We’ve put together some of our favorite tips for transitioning your closet from summer to fall. It may not be sweater weather, but you can still add a little autumn to your wardrobe. You’ll fall in love with these picks from our cute online boutique!
Tip #1: Layer Your Mini Dresses
When temperatures are unpredictable, layering is your friend! As summer ends, you may be tempted to retire your mini dresses. Wear them into fall and winter by adding layers. Try a sweater or denim jacket with your favorite dress to create an autumn feeling. Layering will make your outfit more versatile and ready for any weather the day sends your way!
We styled the Cora Floral Babydoll Mini Dress with the Alexa Dark Wash Denim Jacket. This breezy floral dress features a flattering smocked top and ribbon tie back. The Alexa Dark Wash Denim Jacket is the quintessential denim jacket. It has a feminine fit that elevates the mini to a dressier look. We finished the look with the Helena Plastic Braided Headband. The pink color matches the florals in the dress!
Tip #2: Incorporate Fall Colors and Textures
When summer fades into fall, the warm weather can make it difficult to fully embrace the new season. One of our favorite tips for transitioning into fall fashion is to incorporate fall colors and textures. Add some warm tones to your wardrobe or opt for knit or felted materials. These elements make an outfit undoubtedly autumn!
We styled the Priscilla Sleeveless Shawl with the Olivia Square Neck Bodysuit. The Priscilla Sleeveless Shawl comes in a few different colors, including a cozy camel color that’s just right for harvest season. The felted texture and sleeveless style bridge the gap between summer and fall. The Olivia Square Neck Bodysuit is the perfect neutral piece—it was made for layering! This bodysuit is a staple you just can’t pass by. We finished the look with the Yvonne Mid Rise Skinny Jean. These dark wash jeans have a bit of stretch, so you’ll stay comfortable while lounging around and drinking pumpkin spice lattes.
Tip #3: Maxi Dresses For Days
We can’t get enough of maxi dresses! Their length makes them great transitional pieces. Maxi dresses are typically breezy, so they’ll offer you cool coverage. These dresses are great because you can style them up and down depending on the occasion. Maxis are a year-round must for the feminine gal.
We styled the Carissa Crocheted Lace Detail Maxi Dress with the Seychelles Vendor Leather Mule Wedges. This maxi is fun and free spirited! The Carissa dress has an open back and flowy elbow-length sleeves. The mule wedges we paired it with are so versatile—they match just about any outfit! We topped off the outfit with the Gwen Floral Resin Earrings. Resin jewelry is so trendy, and these earrings add a floral touch to this simple look.
