How to transition your summer wardrobe to autumn

How to transition your summer wardrobe to autumn. Who doesn’t love autumn? It comes with pumpkin spiced lattes, cooler temperatures and the onset of the holiday season.

But if you’re on a tight fashion budget, autumn may not be your friend.

During the summer, you were fine with wearing light dresses and sandals. But now, with the weather starting to cool off, you need to rethink your wardrobe.

Chances are that you have the foundation for the perfect autumn wardrobe already.

By adding a few pieces and wearing your summer clothes a different way, you can keep to your clothing budget and make your old favorittes work all through autuKeep your maxi dress

Don’t put away your maxi dress just yet. Refashion them by wearing them with long sleeves. Try pairing a maxi dress with a chunky-knit jumper or belted blazer. The trick to wearing a maxi dress during the autumn is to define your waist to add structure.

Add tights

Adding tights to your outfit can be a fun way to introduce some pattern and colour into your autumn looks. By stocking up on tights, you have a way to extend the life of your favourite summer dress or skirt.

A pair of grey textured tights worn with your favourite khaki skirt and boots is about as autumnal as pumpkins.

If you don’t want to wear tights, try leggings. They’re perfect for wearing under tunics for more coverage while still staying fashion-forward.

Layer it up

Not only are layer-looks fashion forward but they are also completely functional.

As you layer your summer clothes, you create new looks that will keep you warm in a brisk breeze. Try this rule: layer long over lean. This means matching longer-length tops (think boyfriend cardigans) over leaner bottoms, like skinny jeans.

The ‘long over lean’ rule helps you to avoid any bulkiness that can result from layering your clothes.

Add a statement jacket

Jackets can make such a large impact over the overall tone and look of an outfit. They can completely eclipse summer prints, which makes them more appropriate for autumn.

A military-style cargo jacket with a cinched waist is perfect for skinny jeans and flat boots.

A jacket or blazer can stretch your wardrobe by allowing you to create new combinations.

Wear deeper colours

A bright skirt can transition to autumn if you pick the right colours to go with it. Top it off with a dark grey shirt and black tights or choose a chunky jumper to add some texture to your look.

Swap your shoes

Even when it’s warm enough to bare your legs, your toes can still feel the chill of an autumn breeze. As the temperatures drop, pack away your summer sandals and replace them with boots, pumps or loafers.

Wrap around a scarf

Throwing on a scarf is a simple way to keep your summer weather clothes warm. Don’t be afraid of mixing up patterns or prints either – strips and florals can be surprisingly neutral additions to your autumn wardrobe.
