With the way nature has been trying to toast us all like bagels every time we leave our houses lately, it seems crazy to start thinking about fall fashion. But New York Fashion Week has come and gone and Starbucks has already released their holy grail of fall beverages: the Pumpkin Spice Latte. It must then be inevitable to start revamping our wardrobes to fit the crisp autumn breezes soon to come our way. Some of you may take that as, “Yay, time to buy an entirely new wardrobe and put away all of my summer clothes for another year!” but that is what I am here to discourage! There are plenty of ways to revamp your wardrobe without breaking the bank account so that you can save that money for Uptown.
Here are some items that I recommend you transition from summer to fall:
Scarves – True, not many wear scarves in the summer, but you may have a few good lightweight ones from chilly summer nights in your closet that will be perfect for those crisp fall days as well. Make sure to stock up on the big comfy knit scarves too though, as those will keep you warm for the next few months until spring arrives.
Cotton tees – The cotton tee is the ultimate layering piece. It can really be worn with anything in your closet. Dress it up with a chunky necklace and cardigan or dress it down with a denim jacket and black boyfriend jeans.
Blazers – Instead of rocking your boyfriend blazer with denim shorts and wedges, start to wear it over a flannel button-down and dark jeans. Top off the look with some ankle boots and burgundy lipstick for a perfectly pristine fall look. But put away your pastels and patterned blazers because fall calls for black and other dark colors.
Leather bottoms – Yes, everyone loves the leather and coated pants but you can still rock those leather shorts and skirts that you purchased this summer. Just layer them with some black or patterned tights to keep your legs toasty warm and you’ll be good to go.
Lightweight jackets – As with blazers, you’re going to want to layer sweaters and button-downs with a lightweight jacket. Olive green army jackets and maybe even some camouflage will go with a lot more than you would expect.
Maxi skirts – Easy, breezy and beautiful, you can continue wearing the maxi skirts that you have hanging in your closet after your summer wardrobe overhaul on into fall. Wear them with a tee and a leather jacket. Plain colors are a good investment, as you can most likely wear them even into next year.
Miami is the most beautiful place to be in the fall, don’t let being unprepared for the cold keep you from enjoying it!
