How to Transition Your Summer Wardrobe to Fall

Red Sole darlings, I'm introducing you to a new guest writer today, Dulcet Style...enjoy! I'm off to enjoy Fashion Night's Out and will be back tomorrow. Ta-ta!

It's hard to think fall when the temperature is still so warm outside! So just how do you change your look for the upcoming season and still keep cool when it is so warm? The easiest way to achieve this is with accessories. Think rich colored scarves, groovy necklaces and great shoes to create a transitional look. That favorite summer sweater or tee will instantly look updated with a great scarf in one of falls new colors. You can also use that same scarf in your hair to add some fall color or as a belt to again create a new look with your summer wardrobe.

We are both excited that necklaces are still on the fashion radar for fall. Look for multi-strand necklaces in metals that compliment your skin tone. Other necklaces to try would be ombre beaded necklaces, pendants of large stones, and large beaded necklaces also create interest and help to bring in color. Just remember to keep it long this season and full of interest.

Start shopping for your fall shoes early so you can be sure to get your size. We are seeing a lot of great shoes for fall including one of our favorites, the peep-toe shoe boot. This is a shoe that can be worn with tights to update summer skirts and dresses, and we love that same look with capri's. Just make sure the material is not too summery and light like linen.

This is also a good time to start purchasing your fall make-up. Pick a new color to try on your eyes like teal or gold. Paint your toe nails a fall shade like purple which is everywhere now. Choose a shade that is rich and dark, not to blue. Toss out that lip gloss and replace it with a creamy lipstick for a "now" look.

These simple tips will help you get that extra few weeks of warm weather wear from your current wardrobe and get you warmed up for fall shopping at the same time.

I'm in the process of switching out my winter and summer wardrobes...so I'll be wearing long sleeves already, even when it's in the 80s. But I'm inside all day...and I'm just so tired of my summer wardrobe! I have seen people wear short sleeves year-round. They either wear long sleeves beneath it or a jacket on top of it or pair it with a scarf.
