Mid-August has you thinking about shopping for thick scarves, suede boots, and cozy sweaters. But don’t put all your summer tops and accessories in storage just yet!
Remember that you can also transition some of your summer pieces to fall. Here are 3 quick ways to repurpose and reimagine your favorite summer clothing for cooler weather.
1. You Can Wear White Jeans in Fall/Winter
Yes, you can. You know that old saying, “Don’t wear white after labor day?” Well, out with the old! White jeans in fall and winter can be crisp, sophisticated, and totally fashionable.
This look is a no-brainer when incorporating summer tunics in neutral palettes -- like our Valerie Grey Cotton Pocket Tunic – with cozy layers. Think snow days, the fog rolling in, and whipped cream on hot cocoa.
Light tunics are the perfect layering piece while the weather is still making up its mind. You get to play with all of your cardigans, wraps, and light jackets.
2. Tone Down Summer Colors with Neutral Accessories
We LOVE blue and white for summer. But can you wear blue and white for fall?
Untraditional fall/winter colors can still look seasonally appropriate if you add neutral accessories. We paired our summery Michelle Blue Bell Sleeve Tunic with dark denim and medium brown accessories like a felt hat, leather bucket bag, and booties.
3. Scarves Are Your Best Friends For All Seasons
Whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, a scarf is always your go-to accessory. When the weather is warm, your scarf can keep the sun off your shoulders. When it’s cold, your scarf can protect your neck from the chill.
If you have a favorite summer scarf, like our Ana Yellow Featherweight Tassel Scarf, you can warm it up with cozy fabrics and deeper colors to transition your scarf to fall. We brought out the scarf’s pretty blush pink with a soft sweater and added a chocolate pant for an autumnal touch.
Experiment with different pieces in your closet and put together combinations you might not normally think of. Fall is all about mixing textures, adding more neutral colors into your palette, wrapping yourself up in layers, and feeling comfortable!
