Now that Labor Day has come and gone, everyone is gearing up for cooler temperatures, the return of cozy nights, and apple flavored EVERYTHING. The change of seasons brings about a wonderful opportunity to allow us all the chance to refresh our tired summer outfits. However, to all of you who tend to jump the gun and overdress, don’t make that mistake this year and find yourself sweating in your best dress at the office! September often brings about some of the warmest days of the year, meaning your wardrobe really doesn’t and shouldn’t undergo a drastic shift- at least right away. Sure temperatures are bound to drop a bit, especially in the east coast, but I have found that there are great ways to transition your summer clothes into fall with the addition of a few basics.
I took one of my favorite denim summer dresses, from Urban Outfitters, and simply added a navy and white cropped turtleneck from ZARA and booties from Ruche. I eliminated the summer sandals and bohemian necklace and voila the dress is instantly transformed into a classic fall look. It is still breezy and light enough for warm days but the turtleneck adds a layer of warmth for chillier temperatures, making this a perfect outfit for this time of year. You can really achieve this look with any of your favorite basic summer dresses. I say basic because I think I lot of prints might make pairing tops a bit more challenging but you can certainly play around with that. Add a tomato or a mustard colored turtleneck and make this look really pop!
