10 Ways to Transition into Fall Fashion

The vibrant colors of summer are beginning to mellow into warmer fall hues and a crispness in the air. Fall will be here before you know it, which means that it’s a great time to find little ways to revamp your wardrobe with cute clothes. You can add on cozy layers while incorporating both timeless classics and all the latest trends. With the autumn season just around the bend, we’ve come up with a list of ten ways to transition into fall fashion. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with them.

1. Layer Up — When it comes to layering, you can start with the basics, like a plain tee or a lightweight blouse, as your base layer. Then you can add on layers like a jacket or blazer. Layer your outfits as the weather gets colder by combining lightweight tops with cardigans. You can easily remove jackets or scarves if it ever gets too warm during the day.

2. Get a Trench Coat — Trench coats easily pair with anything from leggings and sneakers to stylish jeans and ankle booties. Every woman needs a classic trench coat that adds effortless sophistication to any outfit. You’ll have protection from light rain and chilly winds with this versatile piece. To style the trench coat with a classic chic look, wear it with a white button-up, trousers, and black pumps. It’s the ideal look for work or a more formal occasion. If you’re looking for something a bit more casual, wear a trench coat over a graphic tee, distressed skinny jeans, and fashion sneakers for a relaxed yet stylish look.

3. Embrace Earthy Tones — The fall is all about embracing earthy tones like mustard yellow and olive green. Think of a deep burgundy dress and rich brown shoes. They’re the perfect fall colors to complement the changing foliage.

4. Swap Sandals for Booties — As sad as we are about no longer being able to show off our cute summer pedicures in our sandals, the fall season means it’s time for boots! Replace your summer sandals with ankle booties. These comfortable and stylish shoes easily pair with dresses and jeans.

5. Get Cozy — Fall is the perfect season to wear cozy fabrics like knits and cashmere. Break out the wool sweater! Remember, even if you’re feeling oh-so-cozy in your sweater or turtleneck, the sun is still shining bright all year long. While you may have worn brightly colored sunglasses during the summer, swap them out for a pair of earthy-or-neutral-toned cute sunglasses instead.

6. Mix Turtlenecks with Dresses — You don’t have to say goodbye to your summer dresses just yet. Instead, transition your summer dresses by layering them over turtlenecks or long-sleeve tops. You’ll have a chic and seasonally appropriate outfit with this simple change.

7. Add Statement Pieces — Try adding bold jewelry or patterned scarves in earthy fall tones as statement pieces. While we may associate brighter colors with the spring and summer seasons, there are still plenty of ways you can wear colorful clothes in the fall. Balance it out by wearing one bright color with neutral-toned pieces. A seasonally appropriate statement piece could be a vest like a puffer vest or a quilted gilet in a dark color that balances out the bolder colors in your outfit.

8. Try Printed Tights — Experiment with printed tights to add a playful element to your fall skirt and dresses. You’ll be warm while still looking fashionable in tights that come in cute fall patterns like plaid or houndstooth. You might not think of wearing floral tights in the fall, but you can totally rock autumn-inspired florals in deeper colors like purple. Play around with geometric patterns for an artistic touch. 

9. Go for Denim — Fall is a great time of year to break out the denim. Jeans are a timeless fall staple for both a casual and classic style. Try denim jackets, jeans, and skirts for a laid-back look. For a fun and trendy choice for this season, try denim overalls layered over a turtleneck or cozy sweater for a playful outfit that can be dressed up or down, depending on your shoes and accessories.

10. Play with Textures — We talked a bit earlier about using earthy tones in your fall wardrobe. According to Flaunter, texture is key when it comes to earth tones. To help create a striking look, layer different fabrics or textures over these earth-toned hues. For example, pair a velvet top with dark green pants or a leather skirt with a cotton shirt. You’ll have a more interesting depth to your fall look by playing around with varying textures.

By blending together warmth and sophistication, you’ll be ready for whatever you have planned for the fall. Whether you want to go for your morning coffee run in a cozy cardigan or take that evening stroll in the park in a turtleneck sweater, your fall fashion journey is waiting for you. Put on trendy dresses with a turtleneck, accessorize with a cute hat or scarf, and layer up with an oversized sweater to dress up for all the adventures that await you this season.
