Fashion & Accessories

By Alyssa Morgan

In these hard economic times it makes more sense than ever to make the most out of our purchases. Thus taking Summer’s best pieces and transitioning them into a Fall wardrobe can be cost effect and at the same time add some flair to an otherwise sea of monochromatic fall/winter style. Juxtaposing a summer printed frock with a wool cardigan, dark tights, and your favorite seasonal boots will give your look an edge with subtle femininity!

For instance, taking a lightweight silk blouse, (which is commonly sold as summer purchase), can fit perfectly in your new transitional wardrobe with say a great pair of designer denim and/or paired with a leather jacket.

Another savvy approach would be to couple that flirty summer skirt with a pair of flats- add on a cashmere crewneck sweater and a sleek silk scarf to complete the look.

Summer may have come to an end but your best and most adaptable pieces from the sunny season should certainly stick around!
