Fall is here, which means that temperatures are dropping, leaves are falling, and we’re losing daylight as we get closer to winter. This transition also calls for you to give up your summer wardrobe and show some more love to your warmer clothes. However, not everyone has built up their fall wardrobe in advance or has extra money to spend on new fall clothing. If you’re looking to transition into your fall wardrobe without breaking the bank, here are three clothing items you can repurpose for fall.
Although wearing a dress in the fall might seem like a terrible idea, you can use a dress in a variety of different ways throughout the season. For example, you can take your white lace dress and layer up with a leather jacket or similar covering, grab a nice belt that works with your dress, and slip on a pair of knee high boots that will keep you warm in the colder weather. With a trendy dress and the right accessories, you’ll craft an outfit that keeps you warm and looks great.
The best part of this combination is that it isn’t necessarily too cold everywhere around the world. If you live in a location where fall temperatures may vary, you can always remove pieces to help you cool down if the temperatures get too high. You get the best of both worlds when you add dresses to your fall outfits.
The great part about tights and leggings is that they can keep you warm under summer clothing, or they can be used as their own outfit pieces that keep you warm as well. However, the key to a successful fall outfit using tights or leggings is to try to use them on their own. As any fashion expert will tell you, the key to successful layering begins at the top and leaves off the bottom. For example, a heavier sweatshirt or cardigan over tights or leggings will give you room to breathe while also keeping you warm. Stick to this rule and you’ll always have an easy transition from summer to fall outfits.
Open toe shoes
Yet another unlikely candidate to wear during fall, open toe shoes are actually a great way to slowly transition your outfits. Not quite ready to let go of summer, but still willing to embrace fall and hoping to fight off the cold? Grab a pair of sandals and add them to your outfit to keep you casual but still prepared for autumn to arrive. Open toe shoes are acceptable with almost any outfit, and this is why they’re so great for summer-to-fall outfits. Just make sure that you don’t do it for the sake of doing it and freeze your feet off in the process.
If you’re having trouble putting together your new wardrobe, you’re not alone. Plenty of people have trouble figuring out how to transition their outfits to fall. Even if you don’t have a fall wardrobe ready, or if you don’t have enough money to create a fall wardrobe, or the heat is still present and you just need a way to make it bearable, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your summer wardrobe into your fall wardrobe.
