A Smooth transition of wardrobe is essential for fall-winter dressing from summer wear so that one is dressed appropriately for the weather, but stays on top of the season’s trends.
Here are a few suggestions for wardrobe Management:
1. A Sundress:
Let’s say you have a black or navy jersey sundress that you are about to pack away with your bathing suit, don’t worry you can easily make it a great addition to your fall wardrobe. The thickness and versatility of jersey fabric makes it a great year round option. Pair your once-summer sundress with a blazer and you’ve got a stylish, and seasonally appropriate, ensemble that won’t break your budget. Just add a jean jacket and a pair of booties for the perfect day or concert look.
2. A Denim Skirt:
No need to dump your skirts until next year. Simply slip on a pair of tights, these items are an easy to transition into your fall wardrobe. Take your favorite jean mini or midi skirt to the next (warmer) level with a cozy knit sweater, tights and closed-toe clogs.
3. Tank Tops:
What about the summer tank tops that you’re thinking couldn’t possibly be worn in the winter? Don’t send those into boxes too quickly either; these tops make amazing layering pieces as the temperature drops. Tank tops avoid the bulkiness that comes with trying to fit a long sleeve shirt under a cardigan and are an easy way to add a pop of color to any outfit. Take your favorite jean mini or midi skirt to the next (warmer) level with a cozy knit sweater, tights and closed-toe clogs.
4. Stylish Jumpsuits:
They have been a huge craze this summer season. If you’re not quite ready to give up your capri or long style, add a black blazer and pumps for a night out on the town. You can even layer a basic tee under your favourite jumpsuit or dress or try a short sleeve waistcoat over your jumpsuit for a super modern and chic look. This will look best with wide leg jumpsuits and cropped leg jumpsuits.
When it comes to footwear, flats are the best non-season-specific option. Worn spring, summer, fall, and even winter, flats are a wardrobe staple. If you are going to invest in a new pair, our suggestion for the stylish and savvy shopper would be to pick practical colors like black, greys, blues, and beiges which can be worn all year long. From ballet flats to loafers, you can give your legs a little break from all those high heels, while still keeping your feet warm!
The key is to build your wardrobe around foundation pieces, like great denim, and crisp classic T-shirts or button-downs. If you follow these guidelines, preparing your closet for fall will no longer feel like a scare tactic— and definitely won’t be a drag on your bank account.
