It’s so fascinating to see how quickly the weather changes around here in Seattle. Just in one night we went from sunny mornings, starry nights to gloomy days and chilly nights. While, first day of fall is still a couple of weeks away, it sure does feels like its Fall already. With the change of season just around the corner, one skill that can come in handy is the ability to know how to take your wardrobe from Summer to Fall. With just a few tips you will be well prepared to tackle the chilly months head-on and use your summer dresses well into fall. Here’s how
Tip 1: Add a fitted jacket. It not only keeps you warm, but also balances out an otherwise feminine outfit.
Tip 2: Make-up – Go with some bolder/ darker lip colors and that instantly changes the mood of the outfit
Tip 3: Hair – Undo’s are a big trend this Fall. I usually don’t experiment a lot with my hair, but this fall I am looking forward to it.

Lets see these simple rules in action.

Here is a Maxi dress that I wore a lot during the summer. While I own a lot of pleated skirts, this is my first pleated maxi dress. The lightweight fabric and simple cuts and not so steep price tag made for an awesome and comfortable summer Maxi dress. To take this dress from summer to fall, all I had to do was to add some leather details and swap the casual jean jacket to a fitted biker leather jacket. I think the leather jacket perfectly balances out an otherwise feminine outfit. Also, went with a bolder lip color to match the mood of the outfit.
How do you style your summer dresses in the winter?
