We may not be feeling those cooler temperatures just yet but we will soon enough. The most difficult thing about this time of year is our wardrobes. Transitioning from summer to fall is tough because the temperature is usually at that "in between" stage. It is quite a bit cooler in the morning than it is in the afternoon; usually, a difference of around 20 degrees. So, what do you do? Think layers, layers, layers. Carry those tanks and dresses into fall by throwing a tee underneath your tanks or a sweater over your favorite summer dress. Trade in those sandals for some cute booties and knee highs. Here are some examples of how to take your summer staple maxi dresses into fall by adding some layers.
Summer: Etro maxi dress and Valentino lace-up sandal. Fall: Doncaster blazer, Etro maxi dress and Lucky Brand bootie
Summer: Mara Hoffman maxi dress and Zimmermann lace-up heels. Fall: Doncaster blouse, Mara Hoffman maxi dress and Zimmermann lace-up booties.
Summer: TopShop maxi dress and Rebecca Minkoff sandal. Fall: Doncaster sweater, TopShop maxi dress and Gianvito Rossi knee high boot.
Now go check in your closet and think about what you can start pairing your maxi dresses with for this fall. And don't stop there. Put a button up blouse underneath your sleeveless tops and pair with a mini skirt and thigh high boots. Throw on a boyfriend blazer with your skinnies and a tshirt and pair with some suede Mary-Jane pumps. Really the options are endless. Have fun now because once those winter temps get here, it will be time to pack up those summer duds!
