You may have to pack away your past season clothes and shop for fresh pieces to make this fall season fashionable. However, you can make the transition from summer to fall without going into major debt by knowing the important things and reminders before you shop.
- You could wear winter whites in the fall season.
Though there are some outfits called winter whites or summer whites, white is seasonless so you can absolutely wear them in the fall. Winter white is more of a creamy off-white, which is fine, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing pure, gleaming, glowing, bright white before, on, or after Labor Day. Like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli, make your all-white outfit work in the fall by going for a turtleneck top, white jeans, and a structured coat. Just leave the leather gloves in the winter and resort to a pair of nude pumps instead.
- You can still wear your summer clothes in the fall with layers.
Whether it’s a skirt over tights, a tank top under a quilted jacket, a chiffon dress with a heavy wool coat, a miniskirt with an oversize sweater, wearing layers can extend your seasonal wardrobe even more. So, like fashion blogger Nina Suess, wear your silk camisole and palazzo pants with a chunky cardigan to make your summer staples appropriate in the fall season.
- Ankle boots and booties are seasonless.
Boots may have been cold-weather-only 10 years ago, but at this point, they are pretty much seasonless, especially short little ankle booties. It’s a stylish and economical way to transition your seasonal looks without draining your wallet. Just opt for a versatile shade like camel, black, gray, beige, brown, and such that can work with any of your outfits.
- You can wear neon colors and jewel tones in the fall.
Fall season may be known for earthy palettes and fall hues of mustard, red-orange, brown, and such, but there’s nothing wrong wearing neon colors and jewel tones. The key is to select a thicker fabric that can keep you warm and skip those airy, lightweight, and sheer fabrics that are only appropriate in the summer months.
- Culottes are one of the hottest trends this fall.
This ’70s trend has been around for several consecutive seasons, proving its versatility. Opt for wide-leg cropped pants in heavier fabrics like wool, tweed, and leather and such to make your feel warm in chilly nights. Culottes have an easy silhouette to master and the exaggerated legs make it more comfortable. An easy way to create a balanced shape is to pair them with a slightly fitted top and add a heeled bootie for those milder fall days.
- Retro floral prints look more fall-inspired over colorful floral prints.
The ’70s are back in vogue, which means a floral dress in a swingy silhouette paired with knee-high boots and a fall jacket are completely on-trend and weather appropriate. Instead of going for colorful floral prints that evoke summery and springy vibes, go to retro floral prints that look fall-inspired.
