As the temperatures remain consistently warm and summer staples finally get marked-down, it’s hard to wrap your head around fall dressing. However (and before you know it), kids will be returning to school and the leaves will begin to change…sweater weather. In preparation, I like to “ease” into my fall wardrobe by integrating a few fall staples into my summer rotation. The three picks below are perfect as the nights start to get cooler (and darker earlier), yet just as easy to pair with your favorite summer tank or flip flops!
Oversized Cardigan: I just snapped up the Free People cardigan – I can’t wait for the booties and jeans it begs for in the fall. In the meantime, it will be perfect over my favorite maxi dress or even paired with shorts and my swim suit during my upcoming beach vacation. Stay tuned…I’m inspired for an outfit pic!
Ankle Bootie: These continue to be a staple for Fall 2014; outshining my favorite tall boots yet again…the bootie is here to stay. While these are an easy fall basic when paired with skinny jeans, try them now with your favorite skirt or dress (long or short). Such a sassy alternative to those sandals you have been wearing on end for the past several months. Plus, no pedicure required!
Moto Jeans: I am obsessed with all of the moto detailing still on-trend for fall – the more zippers, seams and quilting, the better! I’m wearing mine now with a loose tank and strappy heels for a little lady-like edge. And a great way to spruce up the basic jean, sweater, boot combo when the temperatures fall. Just be careful when pairing with your leather jacket and/or moto booties…you don’t want to look like your headed to your local biker bar!
What are you favorite fall transitional pieces? I’m always looking for inspiration – please be sure to leave a comment.
