Happy Monday, loves! I wanted to discuss something that we are all going through at the moment-dressing for the change in seasons. Fall doesn’t officially start until September 22nd, but here in New England, we’ve been experiencing some up and down temperatures. Last weekend, we were teased with some fall-like weather. Temperatures dropped to the sixties and we could walk around the city comfortably. Then this weekend rolled around and we were brought right back into the nineties.
Living in a place that has a distinct difference in seasons is amazing, but can make dressing during the transition periods a bit difficult. You can walk down the street and see someone in jeans and a flannel, with a pumpkin spice latte in hand. Those are the fall chicks who are more than ready for those cool crisp days, leggings, and pumpkin flavored everything. Guilty! Or you could be walking down that same street and see someone in shorts, a pastel tank top, and her favorite pompom gladiators. Those are the summer babes who are grasping onto those warm beach days, rosé, and crop tops. Well, whether you’re a fall chick or a summer babe, I’m here to help you feel comfortable and stylish during this transition from summer to fall. Because you know, that’s what friends are for!
- Start cleaning out your closet! I swear this will make you feel great! They say that your bedroom should always be clean, because it is supposed to be the most tranquil room in your home. Which makes sense, it’s where you go to rest. Not only will a clean closet make you feel better, it will also have you looking better. You’ll be more organized and prepared for the up coming season.
- Dress for the weather! Before I get dressed in the morning, I always check the weather. Because, let’s be honest, if it’s ninety degrees and you’re wearing a flannel, you’re going to look silly. This is the perfect time to style quarter length sleeves with shorts, and cropped jeans with short sleeve tops.
- Dress the part! Your outfit should evoke the season that we’re going into. You’ll want to mix and match various pieces from your closet to create the perfect outfit that combines the two seasons, while still focusing on the up and coming one. For example, the outfit I’m wearing is a loose-fitting off-the-shoulder top paired with jean shorts. I chose to keep this top handy because it can be worn in the summer and during the fall. If I styled it with white jeans and beige wedges, you have a fun summer look. However, here I styled it with dark ripped shorts and black lace-ups to emphasize on fall fashion.
- Layers are your friend! This can be brought back to the importance of dressing for the right weather. With the changing weather conditions, layers are going to be your best friend! A/C still blasting in the office? Thank goodness you brought that light sweater. Walk in the park? Hurray for layering that cute summer dress.
*DISCLAIMER* My outfit was to show how you can transition pieces into different seasons. This helps one look fashionable, while not breaking the bank. However, this does mean that all my pieces are no longer available. I did my best to find similar items!
