It may be only August, but the days are already shorter than they were at summer’s peak, and the nights are turning quickly cooler. Before we know it, we’ll be putting on boots and sweaters everyday.
Get a few more weeks out of those shorts, maxi dresses, and summery prints by using them as part of your wardrobe transition process.
We turned to Pinterest for inspiration on how to wear your favorite pieces. Use these as style guides in your own wardrobe!
Add a denim shirt into your wardrobe for a seasonless look that’s always in style. Pair a fitted denim oxford with a floral skirt and closed-toe shoes for a work look that’s anything but from-the-farm.
Go for Tights
Not only are tights figure flattering, but they’ll keep your legs warm and let you continue to wear mini dresses, skirts, and even shorts well into fall. Try a sheer or opaque pair, and don’t be afraid to experiment with color.
Try a Tunic
A loose, high-low tunic is flattering on almost any shape, and can easily be worn with more substantial bottoms. Swap the shorts for skinny jeans or leggings.
Perfect the Blazer
A blazer is a great way to keep warm and add structure to breezy summer styles. You can even wear that white blazer into the fall months; just pair it with darker colors (denim, maybe?) for a more seasonal approach.
Sure, it’s hard to transition from those flip flops, but it’s important to start making your shoes match the season. For an of-the-moment look, try a short boot or “bootie” with some of your summer wear.
Tie one On
Scarves aren’t just to keep your neck warm. A lightweight and colorful scarf is the perfect transition piece over a simple tee shirt or sweater. Try switching out your statement necklace for a scarf.
