The Fall season comes with pumpkin spice lattes, cooler temperatures and the onset of the Holiday season... what's not to love, right? Well.... we understand that the transition from Summer to Fall weather can be the trickiest time of year for getting dressed. When working with a Client on a Fall wardrobe, transition wear is one of the first things that we recommend tackling. When we build a transition wardrobe for a Client, we focus on light layers and breathable fabrics in Fall colors, as well as lightweight, closed-toe shoes to ease into the upcoming season.
We don't want you to struggle to figure out what to wear when it’s crisp and cool in the morning and blazing hot in the afternoon — we've got you covered! There are three simple and easy-to-implement ways to transition your wardrobe from Summer to Fall. If you follow the below steps, then transition weather will soon become your favorite time of the year!
3 Easy Wardrobe Transition Tips:
1. Purchase Lightweight Knits
This transition weather rule is all about having a nice variety of lightweight knits. When you put on a lightweight knit, you start your outfit with a warm, foundational piece. You'll never regret throwing on a lightweight knit because this piece allows you to go about your day feeling comfortable as the temperatures fluctuate.
2. Begin to incorporate Fall colors.
Now is the perfect time to begin incorporating Fall colors into your wardrobe. When you introduce these colors in lightweight materials, you begin to build a foundation for your Fall wardrobe. Think of the rich and warm Fall tones like Biking Red, Rocky Road, Sugar Almond, and Eden in garments made of lightweight and breathable materials like linen, cotton, etc.

3. Update your shoes!
Finally, don’t forget to start transitioning your shoes from Summer to Fall. We suggest that you slowly start switching out your sandals for a closed-toe shoe, such as a ballet flat, loafer or mule. We recommend a pair of suede flats, an animal print loafer, black mule, or a peep-toe bootie. Making this simple change will make your look more seasonally appropriate!
So, there you have it... three simple tips, so that you too can look and feel your best through the transition of seasons!
