As I write this post, it’s 11:00p.m. and 82 degrees Fahrenheit outside. So, why the heck am I showing you fall clothes? The reason is, that some of the best stuff comes out early.
You’ll soon be needing a few new things to help shift you into fall. So, I thought I’d point out a few fab pieces, and give you ideas on how to style them to create some great transitional outfits. Are you ready?
Move to Fall Colors
Late summer and early fall can be challenging. One day it’s hot, the next day it’s cool. You don’t want to look like you’re wearing your summer clothes once back to work season arrives, but it’s not cold enough to break out the turtlenecks either. A great way to transition is to team up a pair of dark skinny jeans that you wear year round anyway, with a light, long sleeve top in an autumn color.

This V- neck, criss-cross blouse is a good example. it’s light and open like summer top, but the color and long sleeves make it feel more like fall.
Throw on a Poncho
Another easy way to build a bridge between the two seasons is with a colorful wool poncho. Here you’ve got a light colored top, bag and pants that feel rather summery, but you’ve added two fall accessories: a striped wool blanket wrap and suede booties. The balance the other elements out. This outfit does a great job of walking that fine line between summer and fall.
Can You Wear White Or Cream in the Fall?
Many women wonder about white in fall, and to that I say, Just because it’s September it doesn’t mean white is suddenly off limits. White can look chic year round. It’s all in the way style it. For example, take a chunky knit white sweater and wear it with oxblood jeans.
Add a dark tan leather bag and some western style transitional booties. A touch of gold jewelry adds some lightness and fun, like the summer sunshine.
