As the seasons change, there's only a short window of time to experiment with key items of both warm and cold weather trends. Occurring twice a year, once between summer and fall and again from winter to summer, this is the perfect time to mix and match your current staples along with incoming styles and accessories. During this time, bending seasonal rules and wearing the best of both worlds is the perfect opportunity to stretch one's personal style while having fun with what one can create in their outfit of the day.
A self-proclaimed budget-conscious consumer, I like to utilize items within my wardrobe to the best of my ability. Each purchase is a strategic choice with the more wear I can get out of my purchases, the better. While I'm eager for fall looks, I haven't completely let go of summer fashion and plan to keep my favorite pieces in rotation until the bitter cold. Get into these classic everyday staples that are must-haves when completing the perfect transitional looks this fall.
An oversized button-down top is fitting during every season of the year. Perfect to layer with most casual looks, pair with a knit bralette and trouser for the super sleek combination we all need. Slip into a platform thong sandal for an effortless chic look to wear from morning to night.
One of my favorite fall items, blazers are a must have in every wardrobe. Get into a variety of blazer looks this fall from mid to cropped lengths in a range of colors. Pair with an oversized button down and sneakers for a cute and casual transition.
A wrap-around high heels is the perfect addition to your fall shoe selection. Pair with a dress and leather blazer, for a sexy chic night out. Keep it cute with an open toe while you still can.
4.Two-Piece Short Set
This past summer was all about bold prints and bright colors which can easily be added to your fall outfit lineup. During this time, the weather may not permit long pants, instead swap for a cooler approach with a pair of matching shorts. Spice up your business chic look with a printed mesh top for the perfect complement to this lightweight set.
One of my favorite shoe styles for fall/winter is a bold chunky boot. Getting a head start on your cold weather items, grab a girly summer dress to achieve the perfect cool girl combination. Step out of your comfort zone with this unconventional fall look.
