Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Fall
By Kailei Carr
Fall is officially here and though fall is not my favorite season (I’m more of a late spring, early summer girl), there are a few things I love about fall: honeycrisp apples, pumpkin everything and anything, leaves changing colors and perfect running weather. But one of the things that’s difficult with fall is transitioning your wardrobe, especially when the weather is a little schizophrenic. So here are just a few tips to help transition your wardrobe from sleeveless to sweaters:
1) The SCPs: Scarves, Cardigans and Pashminas – These are essential for not only fall, but also spring and even a chilly or temperature changing office. Having a scarf or pashmina that you can put off and on, or a cardigan that you can throw on that cute summer top can turn that summer outfit you wore two weeks ago into a fall staple that will take you then next few weeks.
2) Replace Flip-Flops and Sandals with Ballet flats and Booties – Enough said. I’m loving these Metallic Reva Ballet Flats and Bristol Bootie both by Tory Burch.
3) Layers: In addition to the SCPs you should also wear layers to help with the changing temperatures both inside and outside (especially inside – people don’t know if they should put on the air or the heat!). Blazers, light sweaters and cardis on top of your woven shells, button downs or printed shirts will be your friends during this time.
4) Outerwear: Trenches, Capes and Jackets – Since the nights and mornings are going to get cooler, make sure you have signature trench (Olivia Pope’s essential, of course!), a cape (you can also wear with some Olivia Pope long gloves) and a casual jacket. This Lida Baday tweed capelet is hot!
