Make Summer Clothes Work In The Fall

Saturday morning, I woke up to the groaning and hissing of my radiator waking up from its summer-long slumber. Which could only mean one thing…fall is here in full effect.

But just because the temperature’s dropping, doesn’t mean you have to send your summer clothes into hibernation. Expanding your fall wardrobe (and preserving your bank account) isn’t as hard as you think. It just takes a little creativity and a LOT of layers!

SUMMER DRESSES

The lightweight material and bright colors may make you think of warmer temperatures, but your summer dresses can be useful far past their intended season. Cardigans, denim shirts, chunky sweaters, tights and scarves can keep you wearing your summer dresses even as the last leaf falls. If the layers make you feel a little too bulky, add a belt to help define your waist.

SHORTS

Don’t pack away your summer shorts just yet. Add some opaque tights, combat boots, a cardigan and fur vest to turn this summer staple into a funky fall outfit – and you don’t even have to shave your legs! 🙂

CROP TOPS

Colder weather might mean bundling up, but it’s still possible to show some skin without getting frostbite. Layer a crop top underneath a chunky cardigan and let your midriff get a few more weeks of fresh air before you have to bury it under heavy sweaters for the winter. Add a scarf and some opaque tights for a little extra warmth.
