Now that it’s officially fall it’s officially time to put away your summer disposition, but that doesn’t mean you have to put away your summer staples away. I have been playing around with a few of my favourite pieces from this past season and have found that they can in fact translate into great autumn pieces. All you need are darker colours, richer fabrics, and layers.
These white pants were a huge hit for me this past summer and I was a little nervous about wearing them after labour day, but I have never really played by the rules so I wore them anyway. Since they were such a light, airy fabric and colour I felt it would become more autumn by pairing it with leather boots, a darker tee and my go to bomber. With heavier fabrics and textures, and with strategic layers (hello cute coat season) you can make any summer pant, dress, or shorts fall ready.
Speaking of shorts, I found that I could only really wear them on warmer, sunnier days just because I get cold easily. These pink shorts came in handy this summer and I felt like if I put them with a sultry knit they would easily translate into a fall piece. This v neck sweater is actually super fuzzy and cozy, and since it’s dark it adds such a nice contrast to the lightness of the shorts. Paired with loafers and some hard metal these pink shorts can easily become autumn favourites.
Basically anything you really loved in the summer can still be loved in the fall so long as you add your fall pieces to them to make them heavier. With richer fabrics, warm textures, and layers you can play up the summery lightness of your warmer weather faves while still making them fall appropriate. It’s science.
