Summer Dresses or Sweater Weather?

Instead of hiding your favourite summer pieces at the back of your closet as soon as the weather starts changing, flaunt them as transitional pieces between summer and fall using these simple tips and tricks!

To kick off, dark shades are a fall essential, such as burgundy, navy and grey. While dressing for the transitional phase between summer and fall, try to balance radiant summer colours with sombre fall colours.

Layering your clothes is a terrific way to keep warm while also looking fabulous. Try wearing a turtleneck top or just a simple white or black tee underneath your summer slip dresses or camisoles. Or maybe, wear your favourite crop tops underneath dungarees or pinafores. 

Invest in a statement jacket. This could be anything, a leather jacket, a bomber jacket or a trench coat, whatever goes with your style the best, essentially something to throw over your summer pieces. A trench coat looks great with slip dresses, and a blazer can elevate a bralette top to a whole new level. White denim jackets and pastel cardigans are a beautiful garnish to an outfit embracing complementary hues.

Tights, scarves and boots are fall staples. Try pairing A-line dresses and skater dresses with tights, maxi and midi dresses with a trusty pair of boots and scarves can elevate any outfit while keeping you warm and cosy.

Not only are printed tees a comfortable choice for summer, but they also look perfect with patterned trousers or maxi skirts for fall. On warmer days, simply a playsuit with a jacket or an oversized jumper with some shorts will do the trick!

Finally, don’t be afraid to take risks; mix and match as you like. It’s your style, an expression of yourself, so wear whatever you please with confidence.
