If you live in an area with colder weather, you have a very brief window that you can wear your summer clothes.
I’m in the same boat, and I absolutely hate when that time of the year comes that you have to put away your shorts and wear jeans, or store those tank tops in favor of long-sleeve shirts.
Nothing is fun about putting away clothes that remind you of freedom and warm, summer days!
If you’re just not ready to part with your summer wardrobe yet, follow these tips, ideas, and tricks to make your favorite pieces from your summer wardrobe last well into the fall!
1. WEAR YOUR KIMONO WITH A PAIR OF JEANS
Kimonos are a huge trend this summer, but you may not be ready to put yours away just yet!
If you wore it with shorts or a dress this summer, try pairing it with a pair of jeans instead this fall.
It completely changes the look but lets you keep wearing your kimono into the fall!
2. LAYER TANK TOPS UNDER JACKETS
Tank tops are a necessity in the summer time, but unfortunately they’re often packed away as soon as summer ends.
That shouldn’t be the case though, because you can easily wear womens tank tops underneath cardigans or jackets during the fall.
It’s the perfect, carefree look for the fall!
3. THROW A FLANNEL OVER YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER DRESS
Not ready to store your favorite summer pretty dresses away for the summer?
Grab your go-to flannel and throw it over your favorite sundress.
If the weather gets warmer, you can easily tie your flannel around your waist for a grunge look that’s sure to look fun and stylish!
4. WEAR YOUR SHORTS WITH AN OVERSIZED SWEATER
Since most people associate shorts with summer and warm weather, you often don’t wear them in the fall.
However, I think one of the cutest fall outfits is an oversized sweater paired with your favorite pair of shorts.
It will keep you warm but cool during the constantly fluctuating weather!
5. PAIR YOUR LEGGINGS WITH YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER TANK
Leggings are a fall staple, and they’re so great to wear when you’re not quite sure what the weather’s going to look like during the day.
If the weather looks like it’s going to be warmer on one fall day, wear your favorite graphic tank top with a pair of cool leggings for a carefree summer look!
6. ADD TIGHTS TO YOUR FAVORITE SKIRT
You don’t have to hide your legs because summer’s over.
Don’t put away your skirts just yet.
Instead, wear tights with your favorite skirt instead.
It will add a dimension to your skirt that will make it look brand new!
7. STOCK UP ON JACKETS
Jackets can so easily be made part of a stylish outfit in the fall rather than used as a necessity.
Of course, they are a necessity, but they can also be used a fashion statement during that unpredictable fall weather!
How do you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall?
It’s a tough transitional time, especially when the weather is so unpredictable.
