If you’re anything like me, you’re trying to hold on to summer as much as possible, and that might mean refusing to let go of your summer wardrobe. But no matter how long you protest fall’s arrival, it won’t be long before you’ll have no choice but to put away your favorite crop tops and shorts.
It’s never too early to start preparing even though it’s still pretty early to whip out those leg warmers and knit sweaters. Here, we help you (subtly) transition your summer wardrobe into fall.
1. Opaque tights/Fishnets
Give your summer dresses one final go by wearing them over tights, or keep rocking your high-waisted shorts with fishnets underneath.
2. Knee high boots with an oversized tee
Knee high boots are perfect for that “no pants” look and can easily dress up one of your dude’s oversized tees.
3. Fall manicures
I personally prefer to keep my paws painted black no matter what season it is, but late summer/early fall is the perfect time to break out your favorite dark polishes.
4. Fall hues
Start mixing in more neutral tones into your wardrobe, even if it’s something subtle like a black or gray lacy bra under a white tee.
5. Leather jackets with shorts
As if you needed another excuse to wear one. Leather jackets are an essential staple in your wardrobe no matter what time of the year. Dust yours off and pair it with black fringed shorts for a feminine yet grungy look.
