How to Take Your Favorite Summer Pieces Straight Through to Fall

Hi friends,

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!

We’re kind of in that weird between-seasons time where stores are putting all of their Fall clothes on display, but it’s still too hot to stray from Summer-wear.

I’ve been asking around on Instagram, and it seems like most of you guys are taking this time to peruse both Summer and Fall pieces; I’m right there with you, starting to stock up for Fall but still taking advantage of the warm-weather clothes that are now getting marked down.

I’m expecting that, like with most other years, the change to cooler weather will be a bit delayed getting here, but once it comes it won’t be gradual.

In New Jersey especially, it seems like sometimes the seasons change overnight; but don’t worry, you’ll still be able to wear that cute new tank you just bought, or even extend the time you have to wear those great denim shorts.

The trick to getting more wear out of your Summer clothes: use layering to make them Fall- and even Winter-appropriate!

Below are a few of my favorite Summer looks and ways that I plan on continuing to wear them straight through Fall.

This white bodysuit is a recent Amazon find and goes perfectly with my beloved striped shorts from Shein, braided sandals, and a pair of sunglasses. It also works perfectly for Fall when I add a cute plaid, fringe cardigan, jeans, and some booties.

The majority of this cute tee and shorts outfit can be updated for cooler weather. Get some more wear out of the shorts by throwing on a cozy sweater and some cute patterned sneakers. The ever-popular Nordstrom Sale tee and Tory Burch bag go great with a leather jacket and patterned sneaks, as well.

I personally love to wear camis all year long; they’re so versatile and can go with pretty much anything. Wear a basic black cami with shorts or jeans in the Summer and dress it up with cool accessories. Add on a flannel shirt, worn open or closed, to flawlessly Fall-ify the look.

Okay, this is my favorite Fall glow-up of the bunch! This Venus tee goes great with shorts and a some yellow sandals for a Summery pop of color, but it also looks amazing with leopard print pants, booties, and a stylish Fall hat (even though my husband has already promised to laugh at me whenever I wear this hat, lol).

As always, I’d love to hear about your own thoughts on layering and see how you use it to create some great Fall outfits.

And don’t forget that links to all of my outfits (including the ones shown above) can now be found on my Shop My Looks page, found in the main menu of my blog!

I’ll be back with some big updates soon…until then, happy styling!

Maxi Dress | Bracelet

This beautiful maxi from Red Dress is lightweight and flowy; perfect for both a breezy beach ceremony and a sizzling rooftop reception. I love the way the colors blend together and the slip ends mid-thigh.

Maxi Dress | Clutch

This is another flowy dress that would fit right in on the sand. The clutch is really the star here for me; this new bag from express can be dressed up or down.

Dress

This is a more formal look and allows you to show off your legs and shoes. It has black and white lace detailing all around and a chic off-the-shoulder neckline.

Dress | Shoes

This hi-low dress is ready for a night of dancing. The skirt is fun and flowy and the neckline adds a sexy element. The floral pattern is versatile enough for almost any summer setting.

Maxi Dress

This dress is definitely my favorite of the bunch. As you probably know if you’ve read my other posts, I love lavender. The fit is flattering and the lace detailing is gorgeous. A simple updo is all you need for a dress this stunning.
