Now that Labor Day has marked the unofficial end of summer, I know I’m looking forward to pumpkin-flavored everything and chilly fall nights. As much as I’d love to fast-forward to all of this, plus the glorious weather that fall is known for, we’re still dealing with some pretty unpredictable temperatures here in New York. So don’t pack up all of those summer favorites just yet. There still may be some time to work those pieces into your September wardrobe.
I spotted this Fashionista heading to class on a warm but slightly windy afternoon. She totally nailed the summer to fall transition by wearing an adorable floral dress paired with a tan cardigan. She topped the outfit off with a pair of on-trend Sam Edelman flats with a metal heel and a gold Alex and Ani bangle bracelet. By adding a neutral-colored cardigan this Fashionista let the bold print of the dress speak for itself and created a fabulous and weather appropriate outfit.
Transitioning from summer to fall is as easy as adding a few simple pieces to your wardrobe. A floral dress like this one from Topshop can easily be made fall appropriate with a pair of tights or a fitted cardigan. Have a favorite skirt that you’ve been rocking all summer? Ditch the tank top for a long sleeve button-down and you’ll have a completely new outfit without breaking the bank.
It can be tempting to pack all those summer clothes away and jump right into fall, even if the weather isn’t always on your side. Keeping those summer staples around a little longer can help with these confusing weather woes and as always, keep you looking flawless from head-to-toe.
