Posted on Nov 1 2017 - 3:57pm by GJ Staff

Almost all of us want to look stylish, no matter what time of year it is. However, transitioning your wardrobe from one season to another can be challenging. You don’t want to have to throw out your whole wardrobe and start from scratch, but you also don’t want to be caught in items that are inappropriate for the season.

Transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Here are some tips that will help you to move from season to season effortlessly.

Layer Items

A tank top might be an obvious choice for summer, but it doesn’t always feel like the right choice for fall. However, a breezy tank can actually be quite appropriate for autumn if you use it as the foundation for a layered look. Add a denim jacket or a cardigan and suddenly your light little summer top becomes a perfect choice for autumn.

Play With Tights and Nylons

Some dresses are obviously only appropriate for summer. However, there are many dresses that can be easily transitioned into your fall wardrobe by adding a stylish pair of tights. That little black dress that you wore to a summer wedding can be perfect for autumn if you add a pair of tights, some ankle boots and a denim jacket or blazer.

Play With Accessories

Accessories are a great way to transition to a new season. Adding a gorgeous pair of women’s earrings or a scarf can be a wonderful way to give that simple white blouse a definite fall vibe.

Watch The Weather

The months between summer and the official start of fall can be incredibly unpredictable. You don’t want to be the woman wearing fall clothes during an unexpected heat wave. Don’t rush to put away your summer items. Watch the weather report and be prepared for sudden spikes in temperature.

Ignore Rules About Color

There are many people who say that bold colors should only be worn during the summer and that autumn fashion should be centered around earth tones. While there might be some truth to this, it shouldn’t be treated as an absolute law. For example, a silk magenta top can be perfect during the fall when paired with a cropped leather jacket and skinny jeans. You can use color rules as a loose guideline, but don’t think that they have to be followed completely.

Treat Yourself To Some New Items

You can use fashion tricks to carry summer pieces into fall, but that doesn’t mean that you should completely eschew investing in some great new fall items. Whether it’s an oversize cardigan or a gorgeous new trench coat, treat yourself to some great fall pieces that will help you to ring in the new season. Bonus points if your new fall items are easily transitioned to the winter season.

You don’t have to stress about the changing of the seasons. If you follow these tips, you can easily transition your summer wardrobe into autumn.
