For many style-conscious women, fall is a season to look forward to because cooler temperatures mean the chance to wear more clothes! The more clothes you can wear, the more it seems you can show your individual style. Knowing how to fashionably transition into fall is about more than just throwing on another layer. It takes planning and a certain je ne c’est quoi.
Fashion for fluctuating temperatures
It can be difficult knowing what to wear when morning temperatures are chilly, but then by the afternoon, it still feels like summer.
To ensure you and your style move seamlessly from morning through evening, two of the most important pieces in every fashionable woman’s fall wardrobe are jackets and cover-ups. These are the key items that will enable you to not only move stylishly and seamlessly through the day but into the autumn season, as well.
Having jackets and cover-ups in varying material weights, colors, and styles will keep you covered for every occasion. Whether commuting to work, taking a weekend walk to enjoy the colors of the season, or meeting friends for Sunday brunch, having options in the closet will ensure quick and stress-free dressing.
For those cool work week mornings, a classically styled jacket in a classic fall colour or print, like this Frank Lyman leopard print jacket, is a fashion basic essential. For those casual weekend outings, a timelessly styled jean jacket can be worn with dresses, skirts or pants. It is one of the most versatile pieces every woman should have in her closet.
Think warm and cozy
No matter what the season’s weather might bring, you can still look fashionably fall-like by your colour and pattern choices. Think about colours that convey warmth and colours that reflect the natural tones of the season.
The subdued colours of the earth convey warmth while oranges, reds, and yellows can be worn when you want to exude warmth and vivacious energy.
And just like in nature, earthy tones combine beautifully with the more vibrant hues of the season for the perfect fall fashion mix.
Classic transition pieces
Basic, classic pieces should be the backbone of every wardrobe for every season. This is especially true when transitioning into fall fashion. Classic pieces serve as the base upon which you can add the most fashion-forward items.
Black pants with a black shell, like this Joseph Ribkoff black shell top and black pants, are like a canvas to which you can add a jacket in one of falls hottest colors or prints. Add an on-trend scarf so that if the afternoon is warm, you can remove the jacket and still look stylish.
Classically styled dresses and skirts in classic fall colors and prints will also help you seamlessly move into the new season. The seasons most on-trend bags and purses can add that punch of pizazz that says you know what style is.
And if you’re not quite ready to admit that summer is over? Try trading in your summery sandals for boots. Just remember to grab a jacket before running out the door!
