Every magazine and store is promoting new fall clothing arrivals and I’m over here like wait…I can’t think about cardigans and jeans when it’s going to be 100 degrees all week. Even though it’s back-to-school season, we have to remember that it’s actually still summer until September 22.
While the heat wave is one reason why you shouldn’t put away your summer clothes just yet, it’s actually not my main reason. By mixing your summer clothes in with a couple fall pieces, you can double your number of outfits, meaning you will not wear the same outfit combination as often. Win!! Why not rock at least some of your summer clothes until the weather gets too cold?!
Also, it’s likely that some of your summer pieces look fall appropriate. This black maxi dress has been a staple in my closet for years and I’ve styled it before here and here. To create this look, I paired the dress with two of my other summer staples, these black patent sandals and this must-have woven tote! Then, I added two fun fall accessories, a black bandana and a tan felt floppy hat. I love that the outfit’s color scheme says fall, while the specific pieces keep me cool. Already a little colder in your area? Just add a cardigan!
If you do plan to begin reorganizing your closet for fall or putting away certain items, think carefully. You may be able to restyle a piece, even if it’s not in the typical fall color palette. As fall gets closer, I plan to share more transitional looks with you so stay tuned!
