It's sweltering out. No, wait, now I'm freezing! How am I supposed to pick an outfit?! If this internal battle sounds just a little too familiar, you'll want to pay attention: We've got a ton of fashion advice for what to wear during that tricky transition between summer and fall.
One of the main things that gets neglected when we start transitioning into the cooler months is one's accessories. We generally just switch to darker coloured handbags, heavier jewelry, and cool-tone scarves as soon as our coveted beach days are over, but if you've been sporting a neutral coloured purse all summer long, why not extend its lifetime into Fall? Who says you have to stick your summery accessories in the back of your closet? Try sporting your neutral beach bag (we still have a few neutral totes bags from Canadian company Swell Made Co.; check them out here), as your everyday carryall to up the cool factor of any basic fall outfit.
A super easy tip to prolong the life of your favourite summer staples is to pair them up with darker tones. For example, if you have been sporting some bright solid coloured pants all summer long, wear them into Fall with confidence by pairing them up with your favourite black blazer (click here to see what we have in store!), a white tee and chunkier accessories; you'll be rocking that new Autumn wardrobe in no time! Sometimes by simply changing up sleeve lengths, pant hems, and dress seams we can get a whole 'new look' from an 'old staple'.
We definitely can't forget about all those beautiful summer dresses from this past season, so throw on some opaque tights under your pretty dress, and your friends will be too distracted by your put-together look! We carry tons of quality made leggings, many made from bamboo fiber, that work incredibly well with a variety of dresses!
Layering is the perfect strategy for extending your summer faves into fall, but keep it simple to avoid looking like you're being eaten alive by your own outfit. A fun scarf, pretty knit cap or dramatic belt are your best friends when transitioning your wardrobe into fall—just don't bring em all out to play at once! Choose your favourite piece and make that the statement of your outfit! With a huge selection of beautiful scarves, we at dwell can help make sure you not only love the accessories you're working with, but are in style with the latest trends. With the new season also comes new colour trends, and we certainly carry our fair share of popular colours. From warm shades of neutrals, to rich hues of blues and greens, Autumn just got a whole lot cozier. We hope you get the most out of your new Fall wardrobe, and by following of few of these tips you won't get lost in the layers!
Peace and Love,
