How to Merge Summer Wear with Fall Wear

Hey Fashionista!  I'm sad to see August coming to a close. Summer did not disappoint this year. So many great memories made...but like life, it continues on.  Now that fall is around the corner, it's finally time to start thinking about fall style.  This doesn't mean we have to ditch our jean shorts and flip flops! It just means we get to blend the best of both worlds to create a look to honor this transitioning season. I compiled a list of the most basic ways on how to merge summer wear with fall wear.  By mastering this technique, you will be able to create a stylish ensemble for more than one occasion. Read on for your all-inclusive style map! 

Where I Shopped:
Cardigan Sweater: White House Black Market
Camisole: White House Black Market
Jean Shorts: Old Jeans cut into Shorts
Tights: Foot Traffic
Black Wedges: Payless
Belt: Delias

Summer Wear // Fall Wear
Style Formula

Long Cardigan (Fall) - Cardigan sweaters are essential to the fall season. Pick one in a bold color or print - like the black and white stripe.  Remember that you can always have fun with cardigans. They don't always have to be a simple color. You can choose bright colors or bold prints to accentuate this look nicely.

Camisole (Summer & Fall) – Camisoles are a must when merging summer wear with fall wear.  The weather is unpredictable. One minute it's blazing hot and another minute it’s chilly. Layering your outfit with a camisole – under a cardigan, will help you adapt to the constant changing weather conditions, while keeping you chic and hip.  Get several camisoles in your basic neutral colors like white, black and tan.  

Jean Shorts (Summer) – Jean shorts are the epitome of summer wear. No reason to leave it out just because fall is upon us.  Blend jean shorts with a fall-style cardigan, in deeper hues, like gold, rust, purple, or even a bold black and white stripe.

Belt (Summer & Fall) – Belts are essential all year round.  Depending on the type of cardigan you are wearing with your shorts will determine where you should place your belt. For instance, long cardigans typically allow you to place a thin belt around your waistline. This works especially if you're wearing short hem-lines like this outfit combination.

Textured Tights (Fall) – Tights are the quintessential accessories of fall. Patterns and wild designs are all game during the colder months.  Since this time of year calls for more heat, it’s best to keep tights lights and airy. But, pick a color that represents fall – like the gray hue in the photo above.

Now that you know how to merge summer wear with fall wear, try this style formula with the pieces you have in your closet already. If you’re missing any on this list, draw up a shopping list to complete your look.  I’d love to see what you come up with!
