Instead of jumping to an all-fall look as soon as September rolls around, incorporate one or two “fall items” into an otherwise summery look. This ensures you get more mileage from your summer wardrobe, while remaining true to the season.
For this look, I am wearing a new fall top with a summery pair of royal blue ankle pants. My accessories (shoes, purse) also have a more summer feel. By slowly introducing fall items into my rotation, I actually extend my wardrobe possibilities (as opposed to going “full-fall/winter” as soon as September rolls around). Besides, there are plenty of fall/winter months to rock the “full-fall/winter” looks, so why not take advantage of the transitional months as an opportunity to mix and match?
