FOUR SEASONS LOOKBOOK: SUMMER

FOUR SEASONS LOOKBOOK:  SUMMER

Summer is officially over, so you're probably thinking you have to pack your summer wardrobe away and start shopping for fall and winter.  Noooo!  If you notice you may do this for every season instead of incorporating your summer wardrobe into your fall wardrobe.  We all have a favorite piece of clothing in which we love to wear year round and sometimes we feel like it’s either too cold or hot to wear it.  Below I will show you different ways on how to transition your summer wardrobe year round. 

Accessorize

Skirts can be worn year round.  You can accessorize the look into fall/winter by pairing your skirts with footed tights or if you are trendy you can add the laced socks or designer crew socks.  This will add a little edge to the outfit but also keep you warm for cold weather.  This look has been seen on numerous celebrities and I don’t think it will end anytime soon. 

Layer

Layering is always fun.  You can look like a hobo but dressy at the same time while putting a little effort into your look.  You can pair your skirt with a long line cardigan or an oversized jacket.  This will add warmth and style to your look.   As you layer up your summer clothes, you create new looks that will actually keep you warm in a brisk breeze.

Statement Jackets

Try adding a blazer, leather jacket or denim to complete your summer look this fall/winter. They can make such a large impact on the overall tone and look of an outfit that they can eclipse summer fabrics and prints, making them more fall-appropriate.  Sometimes, if you are not careful, you could literally spend hundreds of dollars on jackets each season. I don’t want you to be that person, so my advice is to purchase one statement making jacket that really stands out, but goes with all of your summer clothes as you transition into fall.

Color Schemes

Adding deeper colors to your summer attire can definitely transition any look into fall/winter.  If you have more bright colors or pastels, add some heavier textures and jewel tones.  This will allow you to keep wearing your summer attire during the fall/winter.

Of course there are some people who are “rule” followers.  Those same people believe you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day and then there are others who feel like you shouldn’t wear tights with open toe heels and not to mention wearing black with navy.  All of those rule can be broken because who follows rules in fashion?!  All to say feel free to wear white after Labor Day, or wear your favorite open toed booties with a pop of colored tights. Try not to spend too much time thinking about whether or not an outfit is fall appropriate, but instead if it’s weather appropriate.  If it makes you feel great, WEAR IT!
