Transitional weather can be quite a pain in the butt. Trust me, with the pre-autumnal weather we're currently experiencing in the Netherlands, I know all about it. There are a few tricks to keep on wearing your summer looks though.
Layering is key if you want to be able to still wear that dress. You can throw over almost anything, from a coat to a sweater. If you'd like an example of the last one, have a look at how I styled my summer dress on a colder day here.
You don't always have to throw something over though. Try wearing something beneath, such as a shirt under a strapless (bustier) dress or top.
[2.] Keep on croppin'
Want to be able to wear your crop top even in fall? It's possible. Mix it with high waisted pants or a skirt, so that you're not showing your whole tummy but just a flare. Still too cold? Layer it up!
Don't feel like wearing boots yet? Grab a pair of sneakers. I just got myself a new pair, which will be perfect for autumn. I intentionally wanted to buy new All Stars, but since they're made of fabric, I decided to buy a pair of leather sneakers instead. Leather is of course much more fall resistent.
When it's not yet too cold, you could wear your sneakers with a cute summer dress for a cool contrast.
[4.] Wear a dress over your pants
I know, this might sound horrible, but do try it out. I'm sure you'll find a combination that you love. For example, I have this longline button down shirtdress, which looks really nice worn open over a pair of jeans together with a knit. For inspiration, type in 'dress over pants' or something similar on Pinterest.
[5.] Bring out the (faux!) fur
Who says you can't wear a faux fur jacket with summery styles? I love wearing my fluffy jackets with denim shorts for example. Pair it with some ankle boots and you'll have a perfect transitional outfit. Just look at them as the new cardigans!
Tell me, how do you transition your look into fall?
