Swap Out One Piece At A Time
One trick that you can try to help you feel a bit summery while also dressing for fall is to swap out one item in an outfit at a time. Especially during the weeks of fall when it’s still warm during the day, you can easily change out just one piece of clothing at a time so that your outfits straddle the line of summer and fall.
The best place for most people to start is by adding a sweater to their outfits. Not only will layering some of your summer looks with a light sweater or cardigan help it to look and feel more like a fall look, but it will also help to keep you at a comfortable temperature as the morning and evening hours get a bit cooler.
Start With Fall-Friendly Shoes
Switching up your shoes can also help bring a look from summer to fall. So after you’ve added a sweater or other layering element to a summer outfit, you should then think about how the shoes you’re wearing lend themselves to more of a summer or fall look.
To get a more autumn-like feel from something you would traditionally wear in the summer, you can simply wear a shoe that’s more fall-appropriate. This can include swapping out sandals for leather mules or other shoes that cover a bit more of your foot and ankle. This kind of change will not only bring your look into fall, but it will keep your toes from freezing in the fall weather, too.
Adjust Your Color Palette
For many people, one thing that can really set a look apart as meant for summer or fall is the color palette. Traditionally, summer colors are lighter and brighter, while fall colors are richer and warmer. Because some colors will work well in both seasons, you can easily transition your wardrobe by using colors that are more neutral as part of a summer and fall look and then adding something that’s a richer color as you move into the fall season.
If you want to keep a bit of summer with you while you move into fall, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you learn how you can use some of your summer wardrobe while making adjustments so that you fit right in with autumn as well.
