Cool breezes, chunky sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes. Fall is in the air. It’s time to put away the little blouses and sandals and make the switch to all the fabulous fall clothes. Here are our favourite tips to make the transition from summer to fall with style and a little sass.
Layer Up: Add tights to that favourite summer dresses, throw your favourite thick scarves over your blouses and light blazers. Throw a flannel over any tee with jeans and you are good to go! It is a classic fall go to. AHH-MAZINGLY SOFT PLAID BOYFRIEND SHIRT from American Eagle Outfitters $56
Buy Boots. Boots will make any outfit pop! A comfortable, stylish choice. We’re kind of in love with these KEESHA COGNAC KNEE HIGH BOOTS from ALDO. $150.00
Invest in a jacket. Think leather jacket, military-style cargo jacket, denim or trench coat. Just one statement-making jacket can take your outfit from frumpy to fabulous. Be prepared for the cooler weather with a great coat. A trench coat is a great way to stay warm and look fashionable while doing so!
