A familiar yearly ritual is almost upon us. Packing up our summer wardrobe for another year and filling our drawers and closets with long sleeve shirts and sweaters is a tedious, but necessary chore. Before you completely switch out all your favorite summer pieces in favor of heavier and more substantial Fall and Winter ones, read this article to see how you can easily extend the life of many of your summer favorites and continue to enjoy them for months to come.
Tank Tops And Camisoles. These thin and comfortable under pieces that were worn independently over the summer can easily be included in many Fall and Winter Outfits. Use the tanks and Cami’s as a base under V neck sweaters, denim jackets, cardigans and cute blazers. Add a great pair of jeans, tailored pants or an A line skirt and you have the basics for a fun and appropriate seasonal outfit.
Maxi Dresses. These fun and fashionable dresses are too cute and too comfortable to spend a year tucked away in the closet. Continue to wear your favorite maxi dresses throughout the Fall with a few fashion tweaks. Add a denim jacket and swap out your sandals for some cute flats. Add some jewelry in Fall colors such as brown or orange for a finishing touch.
Denim Shorts. Your favorite denim shorts can translate easily into Fall by wearing dark colored leggings underneath. A peasant style top and a great pair of boots makes for a fun and fashionable casual outfit for Autumn celebrations and get togethers.
Capri Pants. Traditionally worn in the Spring or Summer months, capri pants can be fashionably worn well into Autumn and Winter. A lightweight long sleeve shirt and a pair of flats instead of sandals looks great for casual daytime wear. Black dress Capri pants can be worn to the office or out on the town all through the year by adding high black boots and a stylish wrap around sweater.
Mini Skirts. Short skirts never seem to go out of style and can be worn throughout the year with a few modest touches. While you may have worn your short skirts barelegged during the summer with a sleeveless top and gladiator sandals, Fall and Winter is the time to think about tastefully bringing your mini skirt into the colder months. Navy Blue, black or brown tights can be worn under the skirt and finished with a fun pair of ankle boots. A dark colored blazer can be added to the top over a camisole or shell. Complete the look with a great bag and some understated jewelry.
Using your creativity to take a few fashion risks can help you to easily continue to wear your favorite summer wardrobe items even after the first chill in the air appears. Not only will you save money on your Fall and Winter wardrobe, you will add many new outfit choices for the colder months to come.
