As the summer winds down to a close, there is still time to get some use out of your bathing suits and shorts before the chill is in the air.

There are other items of clothing, that while you may think of them as “summer wear”, they can be used right through the Fall Season!

Let’s see how you can take some of those summer pieces and transform them into a great autumn look!

The Bright Colors
All those great color block pieces that you have can easily make the transition into the new Fall season.

Skirts
Layers are the key to making summer clothing over into fall clothing. Take those maxi skirts that are long and flowing, especially the latest neon color ones, along with your breezy summer dresses, and add a classic leather belt in a brown or black tone. Add a classic cardigan sweater and a cute hat, like a felt beret or a cap, and you are instantly looking autumn-like!

Dresses

Those fun and flirty summer dresses still can be worn on the Fall season. A pair of dark brown or black opaque tights worn under a flowing summer dress gives it an instant cool weather update. A sweater and a pair of closed shoes complete the look.

Shirts

Turn those sleeveless button down shirts into a vest and wear a long sleeved tee underneath for a crisp Fall look. For collared summer shirts, layer on top a soft v-neck sweater and let the collar peek out. Wear your floral summer shirts with a pair of black jeans to give it a darker, cool weather feel.

Top It All Off

A trendy, cool weather blazer tops off any look. Wear a blazer over your summer shirts, with a summer skirt, or with colored jeans to move flawlessly from summer to Fall!
