How to Prepare for Fall Transitions
Expert Tips for Transitioning Your Summer Wardrobe to Fall
Greetings Blu Violet Beauties! Fall is approaching fast and with it brings a change in weather and fashion; but that doesn’t mean the items you purchased during the summer have to be cast aside. Today we are going to talk about how you can take your summer pieces and incorporate them seamlessly into your fall wardrobe. Some traditional fall staples such as light jackets, sweaters and denim can be worn with summer items like tanks, dresses and skirts.
Any tops purchased or worn during the summer including tanks and bodysuits can easily be transitioned to fall by pairing them with our favorite denim from Daze and a great blazer like our Chateau Linen Blazer from Z Supply. They can also be paired under one of our Free People layering tops like the Lady Lux or On The Dot for a great date night option.
Summer dresses can also be easily worn into fall with the right layering pieces. Pair a dress with one of our great light sweaters over it and you instantly have a new look. For an edgier vibe, pair a summer maxi dress with a leather jacket and some boots and you are ready for those cooler temps. The Brooks stripe midi dress by Z Supply would look great paired with a black leather jacket and booties or a jean jacket and sneakers for a more casual fall look.
Seasonless staples are also great pieces to have in your closet as they can be worn year-round and easily transition between the seasons. Take our Z Supply Farah Trousers for examples, they work great in the summer paired with a tank top or bodysuit and a pair of sandals but can easily move into fall by swapping the tank for a graphic tee, cardigan and sneakers or flats. Our Z Supply Indy knit jumpsuit is another piece that is timeless and transitions well. In the summer and spring months pair it with sandals and a few necklaces by Ellie Vail for a quick and easy look. In the fall, the jumpsuit can be paired with a blazer and heels for a great business casual look or take the blazer off and add a pair of earrings and clutch bag for a date night look.
Another great piece for transitioning into fall is the Insta famous Free People Freya sweater set. The knit sweater and taper pants look great paired with sandals in the warmer months and can easily be taken into the cooler months by pairing with sneakers and a jacket. The outfit is cozy but chic and makes you look instantly put together.
A big trend we are seeing for fall is off the shoulder or exposed shoulder tops. Our best selling Six Fifty off the shoulder Anywhere Top now comes in more colors perfect for fall like Raisin, Taupe and Amber Gold! They are the perfect top for those cooler days and nights.
Jewelry is another part of your wardrobe that can easily be transitioned across the seasons. Fall jewelry trends are showing mixed metals, layering necklaces and bulky bangles. Our Artizan Lungo blended bracelet is a gorgeous mixed metal bracelet that will look amazing either dressed down with a sweater and jeans or with a dress for a night out! Stay tuned for more details on this amazing new jewelry line we are launching soon!
