With September a day a way I think it is officially time we make the transition to fall focused shopping (although, let’s be honest, I have been here for weeks!). And to begin, I think it best we look at those pieces that work while the temperature says summer, but our fashion choices say fall.
I actually have 3 clothing articles that I suggest purchasing now that will take you from today through November (or next spring if you live in a climate like Los Angeles). These are pieces that, regardless of current trends, possess an inherent chicness we all want to exude. Also, these are items that can be seamlessly integrated into your wardrobe- no matter what your aesthetic.
A Light Sweater: Cropped or long, open or tight weave—I love a good sweater. I should say light sweater, because according to Lukus these things should be classified as shirts. Regardless, a light sweater can be a great piece during the seasonal shift. Wear them over maxi skirts, mini skirts, midi skirts, short shorts, cropped jeans (I can keep going!) and you’ve got a look that is just plain cool.
Fall Platform Sandals: Okay, I am using the term sandal loosely, as in “anything that reveals your toes and has some other sort of cut-out.” Acceptable? Good. I adore these, be they wedge, chunky, stacked or stiletto heeled. Lose the espadrilles & cork and replace them with leather & suede (faux or real!) and you have the perfect season shifter. Wear them with bare legs now, then (when it gets cooler) add tights or socks. These shoes are feminine and fun.
Blazer: An updated blazer is one of the chicest articles of clothing you can have in your closet. Seriously. You put on a blazer and you look a million times more put together. You could be wearing a t-shirt and jeans—add the blazer and “ta-da” suddenly you have an outfit. It can also work over dresses, shorts, skirts… Just like the light sweater, blazers are incredibly versatile!
What do you think of these fall transitional pieces? Do you have any item that you depend on during this seasonal shift?
