5 Tips to Work Your Summer Wardrobe Into Fall ♥

One of the best ways of making the most out of your closet is to implement a few tricks that will make transitioning from season to season a breeze! As Fall slowly approaches, here is what you should know to give your Summer wardrobe a longer life span.   

Light textured tights are your best friend! They are less warm than regular thighs and still show a peak of skin. Wearing paler colored thighs is really appropriate this time of year as it keeps the whole look light and fresh. We'll have plenty of time for burgundies and forest greens in the Winter! 

Shirts are cute and versatile! It's too warm still to bring out the jackets, but to cool to go bare arms. A shirt is great because you can roll the sleeves up during the day and then button them down when the sun sets. You can wear them over sleeveless Summer dresses like the one I am wearing, skirts, pants or shorts. They go with everything! They are also one of the easiest garment to thrift so shop away my friends!

Colors makes us happy! They make any day brighter and totally have an impact of your mood. There is no reason only your Summer wardrobe should be colorful? Keep the sun with you year round by wearing a bright garment or accessory.

♥ Accessorize with organically inspired jewelry. One of the greatest thing about Spring and Summer is that nature awakes and looks so luxuriant! Fall means saying good bye to flowers and greenery and a great way to keep your love of nature alive in your heart is to have flowered and leafed accessories to make any outfit lively.

♥ Mix patterns! It always keeps your look visually stimulating and gives any outfit a little edge and depth. This dress, although a Summer dress, has a lovely Aztec pattern that will translate very well into fall (I predict Navaho, Aztec and African patterns are going to be huge this season!).

Season changes are one of the coolest gifts from nature, let's embrace it! Let's give our closet a fresh look over and see how we can use our favorite Summer pieces to rock Fall looks that incarnate our personal style.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. Hi Virginie! What a great post! I loved your tips and wrote them down in my little to-do notebook ^^ You know, you should really learn me how to tie that cute foulard you've got attached to that bag! I want one sooooo bad, but don't dare to buy one without knowing how to tie it :) Have a great week! Happy Tuesday ^^ x

  5. Thanks for the sweet comment Nikki, I'm glad we can share the inspiration! Remixing is great year round, we just need a little imagination!

    This scarf is a squared scarf that I just tied in a bow around one of the straps of the bag. It's a thrifted scarf (99 cents!) and I also wear it as a head band or belt. I love scarves, they are such a great )and inexpensif!) way of making the little details counts! Sometimes I just tie a knot too, depending on the purse and the lenght of the scarf.

    I hope this helps dear!

    Have a great week too :)

  25. Love your fall tips. I so wish I could start implementing them--unfortunately, we've had weather over a hundred all summer long! I'm so ready for fall!

    ReplyDelete
  26. These are great tips! Way better than the usual nonsense tips people give you about transitioning like "wear a cardigan." I really like the one about the pale tights and about wearing nature-inspired jewellery. If my suitcase wasn't such a disaster pre-move I'd try to implement some of these!

    Really like this outfit of yours too!
