3 Summer Items That Will Carry You into Fall

Don’t be scared by the title, summer is not yet over. In fact, I’m almost positive we’ll all have at least a good month and a half of this summer heat. While you, like myself and many others, are probably taking advantage of these summer items (this is definitely the best time to stock up), you’re also probably thinking about how you’re going to have to pack away those items in a few months. This doesn’t have to be the case! Three items that are so popular this summer can definitely be brought back in a new way come Fall.

The Maxi Dress 

Every woman loves a good maxi dress. When you have one that’s the perfect fit and the right length, the dress can be so great for a hot summer’s day or a nice evening dinner. Not ready to put the maxi away? You can easily transition a maxi dress from summer to Fall by adding a blazer or anorak jacket. Pick one that’s neutral in color—grey, black, army or forest green, or navy—to balance out the bright color of the maxi. You can pair it with flats or even some booties.

The Ankle Boot
So popular to pair with cutoff shorts in the summer, you can always transition ankle boots into Fall simply by bringing down the hemline. In other words, choose pants or tights with a skirt or dress that are in a similar color family to your ankle boots so that the outfit feels more like fall.

The Baseball Cap
I don’t know about you, but ever since seeing Blair of Atlantic-Pacific make baseball caps look totally chic, I’ve been hooked. They’re now a staple in my summer wardrobe. It’s so easy to bring these items along when the weather cools down (especially if you’re having a rough hair day). Take note from this photo and simply pair a cap with neutral colors and items like boots with a chambray top and you’ll be good to go!

Summer is still here, but keep these tips in mind when it’s time to pull out your fall wardrobe.

    Love it! I also am a fan of wearing colorful summer dresses with black tights and a black blazer to the office!
