Fall months in Chicago is a time where warmer days quickly roll out and cooler temperatures make wardrobe selections a bit problematic. Before you store up your entire summer gear, transition those pieces with a few warmer selections to get double-duty out of your summer fashions.
EXTENDING SUMMER FASHIONS INTO FALL
ELEVATE SUMMER COLORS WITH NEUTRAL PALETTES
The light and breezy colors of summer can easily be mated with monochrome fall selections. As temperatures dip, start by mixing warm, luxe leggings with an oversized fringe wrap featuring muted autumn colors into your wardrobe. Light hazel, chestnut brown, peachy tones, mustard yellow, and muted but rich blues and greens are all colors to transition summer garments to an autumn look.
ACCESSORIZE FOR WARMTH
Since the weather can easily change from sunny to breezy, warm up your summer whites (yes, whites are no longer banned from fall and winter wear) with a plaid pattern scarf or newsboy cap. This is also a good time to pair that slim fitting winter blazer with a floor-length floral dress. A leather cross-chest purse is a perfect way to bring it all together.
LAYER YOUR BASICS
Nothing feels better than a hefty cotton sweater during chilly fall days. Think long boots, leggings, oversized sweater, and a scarf—add in your summer skirt, and you’re ready for a no-shiver November day. You can always opt for simplicity by layering necklaces with a simple black dress, tall boots, and a military-style jacket.
Fall is the perfect time to mix it up with your denim pieces. A sleeveless turtleneck or t-shirt can go a long way underneath any number of fall combinations—paired with your darkest denim and a plaid long-sleeved shirt knotted at the waist, layered with a long-sleeved t-shirt hanging below a short waisted cardigan and roll-up jeans, or with a cashmere sweater tucked into your favorite shorty denim skirt.
Making the jump into fall with cool color combinations and warm layering schemes is the best way to extend your summer wardrobe into the fall season. Those lighter summer skirts pair well with warm leggings and loose fitting over-sized sweaters that look great with the thinner fabrics of summer.
