With the fall season right around the corner, we're getting super excited for a few of our favorite things... leggings, chunky knit sweaters, and pumpkin spice lattes. But before we get ahead of ourselves, we're still enjoying the last few moments of summer! That being said, now is a great time to start shopping for pieces that will carry you into fall. Um, hello Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & end of season summer sales! Here are a few key pieces that make an easy transition from now through October.
Jewel Tone Denim
We're loving these J. Brand jeans (on sale at Nordstrom until August 3rd!) in the pretty deep plum hue. Wear them now with open toe shoes & your favorite tee or tank. Wear them later with boots and a sweater or cardigan. Deep colors are surprisingly versatile... try them out with floral print tops or chambray button downs too!
Short Floral Dress
A floral print mini dress in fall-friendly colors (this one also from Nordstrom is perfect, and 50% off) can shift from season to season. Wear it now with flat sandals, add a denim vest if you want to mix it up. Wear it come September with ankle booties, tights, and your favorite leather bomber jacket!
Striped Maxi Dress
Stripes are one of our favorite prints... they're in style year-round! We like to give stripes a nautical feel in the summer months, and an edgier feel come cooler months. This Vince maxi dress (on sale for 60% off) is a summer staple. Once fall approaches, maxi dresses can still make a statement! Think in layers, and your maxi dress transforms into a fabulous long skirt. Add a long sleeve shirt (sweatshirt or sweater) on top of the dress. An off shoulder shirt would be especially cute over the Vince dress, revealing the striped straps beneath! Or, add a button down shirt (worn loose or tied at the waist-- in plaid if you feel daring). Pair it with booties and a felt hat for an added touch!
Felt Floppy Hat
Speaking of felt hats, a floppy felt hat is a great accessory in both summer & in fall. We love a simple felt hat (like this one by David & Young) to compliment any outfit. Wear it now with flowy bohemian tops, and wear it later with just about anything!
Tartan plaids are back for fall, in a big way. Think classic & sophisticated when styling this year's plaid trend, instead of punk rock. We love this slightly sheer chiffon plaid blouse from Forever 21. Pair it with denim shorts or tucked in to a skater skirt for now, and wear it with jeans come fall. You can even dress it up to turn it into business attire!
