Summer dresses, crop tops and endless Starbucks shaken green tea lemonades – can summer just last forever?! Sadly, it can’t. And, wearing your TKEES flip flops right up to the first snowfall probably isn’t the best idea. But you don’t have to push all of your summer favourites to the back of your closet just yet! These tips will make the transition from summer to follow (aka shaken lemonades to pumpkin spice lattes) a little prettier.
Tights are your new BFF
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t wear your favourite summer dress anymore! Invest in a great pair of booties, get your hands on some opaque tights at H&M and voila! The key to keeping that favourite summer dress around for a little longer.
Never leave home without accessorizing
Accessories and layers can help you dress up or dress down an outfit. The right additions will keep your old and new wardrobe pieces looking fresh! Fact: scarves are a fall must-have. Aside from the cozy appeal, it can add the finishing touch to your #ootd. Adding a belt is the perfect way to pull together layers like a blouse and cardigan.
We love fall hues
One of our favourite things about fall are all of the colours! From reds and browns to oranges and yellows, these colours just add a sense of coziness to every look. Make sure to get a few of these hues into your wardrobe this season.
Stretch out sandal season
Yes, the temperatures will start dropping but that doesn’t mean you can’t show off your summertime pedi – just replace your shorts with your favourite pair of denim skinnies and an oversized knit!
Go knit or go home!
Let’s face it, one of the best things about fall are pulling out your favourite knits. You simply can’t own just one, with so many styles, colours and fits, you’re bound to find at least 10 that you just can’t live without. Knits are the epitome of fall, but luckily can also be worn right into the frigid winter months… underneath your uber warm Canada Goose coat of course.
The perfect fall jacket
Your winter coat is too heavy but your spring coat isn’t warm enough – we suggest you invest in that perfect fall coat, we promise you won’t regret it! If you’ve been an eying the perfect fall jacket but you aren’t sure if you “need” it – you do! Some of our favourite fall jackets are: leather jackets, bomber or trench. Go for fall-ish tones like burgundy, green or beige.
Good shoes take you good places
Booties are the next best thing since skinny jeans. And they are a great way to fall-ify any outfit. Neutral coloured booties will take you flawlessly from weekend errand running to dinner date.
