Convert summer clothes into fall !!

1. TIGHTS

You can wear shorts and even shorter skirts in fall! This weather is obviously not conducive to bare legs (and seriously, most of us skip a couple days of shaving more regularly in cold weather, am I right?). So pairing a cozy pair of tights with these bottoms not only brings a little warmth to your lower half, they add a depth of color or texture to lightweight summer fabrics.
CABLE KNIT TIGHTS Can I really say anything more about them!?! I love wearing dresses in the Fall now, and tights make them so much more Fall-ish! Love my new pair from H&M!

2.OUTERWER

Jackets and blazers and cardigans – oh my! All of the above create a more stylized fall look to anything in your closet. Tank top? Throw on a cardigan! Sundress? Wear to work professionally with the addition of a well-cut blazer. I even wear a few of my lighter jackets as wardrobe outerwear essentials with certain outfits (including my fave: a corduroy number – Squee!).

3. BOOTS WITH SHORT HEMLINES

Boots are the universal accessory item for fall. You can still enjoy a bit of naked leg with a dress or skirt or even tuck in pant legs (including cropped pants, which is my perfect way to convert summer pants into fall). A pair of chunky boots can easily dress up or down any outfit based on its style, heel height and material.
All-black. Structured pieces. Strong leather boots and skirt add contrast to the loose T-shirt. Love the proportions. The top is long, with the short pleated skirt peeking under the hem. The boots are streamlined, and, like the hiked-up hemline of the skirt, it adds to the “long legs” effect.

4. ANKLE SOCK WITH PEEP TOES

I abhor when open-toe shoe season ends. Thankfully, catalogs and stylists are embracing the multiple-season use of our footwear, adding a short, nylon ankle sock with peep toes in summer-to-fall outfits. I think this look works best when contrasting shoe to sock color, paired with an adorable printed dress.

5. ADD A SCARF

It’s strange, but when the weather starts dipping, my neck is the first body part to feel the effects. I love scarves for this very reason. Made in a variety of fabrics, sizes and colors – with tassels, hand knits and even patterns – a scarf can be tied or wrapped in numerous ways for new and exciting outfit creations. I have a stack of them.

6.WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, ADD A PAIR OF SKINNY JEANS

When summer ends, and I rearrange my closet to reflect the certain season, I am almost aghast at the short hemline of some of my dresses. (I’m sorry, but when it’s 90+, I cannot handle the heat OR a lot of coverage). But with some of these clothing pieces can be utilized as tunic tops and paired with your favorite pair of skinny jeans. I find this wardrobe option also works well for those certain transparent fabrics that REQUIRED the use of a slip on a sunny day.
You would think that with how much I complain about the heat, I would embrace the cooler temps. While I certainly enjoy layering fashion, it’s as though my internal heater shuts off completely in September, and then I’m a total freeze baby! How do you convert your summer wardrobe – or seamlessly transition it – to fall?
