Transitioning Summer Wardrobes to Fall

Falling into a pattern of buying clothes while they are in season is tricky. It seems that by the time you’ve bought your perfect summer wardrobe, it’s time to start bundling up. Your brand new sundress and lightweight tops are cycled out before they have had the chance to see the outdoors. But before you shove your shorts to the back of your closet, read these tips to turn your summer wardrobe into fashion-forward fall outfits.  

Tip 1: Layer Over The contrast between your flowy summer pieces and the sharp look of a blazer or jacket like our Ugo Blazer is one of the simplest ways to transition from summer to fall. Even from day to night, when temperatures remain high until nightfall, keeping a just-in-case jacket with you never hurts, especially style-wise. The deep green and hints of orange in this blazer make this multi-color piece easy to pair and in a perfect autumnal color scheme.  

Tip 2: Layer Under You’ve probably heard this a million times over, but this tip is such a classic, we couldn’t resist. Turtlenecks, long sleeves, and even just t-shirts are some of the best transitional pieces in anyone’s wardrobe. Our Nneka Sun Dress is undeniably stunning on its own and fits a perfect color scheme for fall. Adding a maroon or black turtleneck underneath is the perfect touch to make this piece more weather-appropriate as the days get shorter and chillier.  

Tip 3: Bust out the Boots Yet another classic, boots will never go out of style. Paired here with our Obiageli Strapless Dress, the footwear chosen elongates the look and keeps the attention on the flowy dress that can be worn year-round. This timeless pairing is classy, chic and keeps your feet protected from the ever-changing weather. Zipping up your favorite pair of boots really is one of the best ways to prepare your dresses, skirts, and even shorts for the upcoming season. 

Tip 4: Giving in to Temptation Sooner or later, you may find yourself giving in or getting bored with re-styling your summer wardrobe. And that’s ok! We are always around when you decide to treat yourself, and buy to bundle-up when it comes time. Our brand new Lagos Cape is ready to warm you up when you possibly fall into the same habits, and buy for the fall mid-season. When the winter comes, we’ll have a tip for that as well.
