So it’s September, but I think the weather here in LA still thinks we’re in July! While I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than throw on a chic trench coat or a giant fuzzy sweater, I still wanted to find a way to incorporate Fall fashion from my Summer wardrobe. To be completely honest, if I wore this outfit out right now, I’d probably get a heatstroke… but with little elements in between (like the lips or bag), this look can totally be worn in the heat! Keep scrolling to discover 5 things that will transition any Summer look perfectly for Fall:
1. Dark Floral Dress
One of the easiest ways to get yourself in an autumn state of mind is to change up your color palette. Incorporating darker colors and warm tones (as opposed to bright colors and pastel tones) into your wardrobe can easily shift your closet from summer to fall. This dark floral dress (similar here) is still warm-weather appropriate but the black, warm yellow and green colors give it a fall vibe!
2. Oversized Blazer
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, an oversized blazer is going to be your closet staple this season. If you can stand to add another layer to your look (maybe if your office is an ice-box and you need a little warmth, or it gets cooler at night) then ditch your summer-worn blue jean jacket for an oversized blazer. The one I’m wearing here is from The Kooples but I’m also equally obsessed with this one and this one!
3. Thigh High Boots
Every season I end up falling in love with a new pair of thigh high boots. Last year it was these and the year before I couldn’t stop wearing these! But this season, these thigh high Jimmy Choo boots are going to be my go-to’s. I love that they hug my legs and though they’re high-heels, they’re super comfortable! A good boot can instantly transform any look into the perfect fall look.
4. Structured Bag
At this point, a structured bag is a classic. This one here has such a cool bucket-bag/pouch shape that makes a total statement! A new bag is like a new beginning. So treat yourself! If you’re looking to splurge- check this baby out. But if you’re on a budget, this one is super chic and under $100!
5. Dark Lips
If it’s still WAY too hot out to rock a blazer or thigh-high boots, the easiest way to update your look for fall is to switch up your makeup! Dark lips anyone? A bold dark lip makes a huge statement and will never fail to add some edge to any look. If you can’t find a red/brown/fuchsia that fits you perfectly, try playing around and mixing shades! For this look, I’m wearing a deep scarlet, but I blended it with a darker brown to make a one of a kind hue.
So as ready as I am for fall and colder weather, I guess I’ll soak up the last bit of summer as much as I can– all while incorporating my 5 things that will transition any summer look into a fall look.
