How to wear your great fall wardrobe already now

Combine old summer and new fall items

When you bought clothing and you are not eager to wear it immediately, then better bring it back and get your money back. It’s a sign you bought the wrong piece. Now what when it’s not the season yet or you bought an item on sale for the next time the season is around, but you still want to wear it right now. Well, first, congrats you most likely bought a great wardrobe addition. Second riot your closet for items you already own that give the vibe of the season you want to dress for. A pretty fall dress can be worn on a chilly summer day with the right shoes. Chinos also look great in summer with a classic top and sandals.

Wear it now, wear it later

Recall, it’s already fall weather up here in Alaska. Here I show the new fall outfits and feature how I wore the respective item in summer.

Purple floral print fit-and-flare work dress

I bought this fit-and-flare fall dress for fall on my last trip to Louisiana. I wore it without jacket/cardigan for the last days of Alaska’s short summer. Later in fall, this dress looks great with a cardigan or cropped jacket.

Porcelain Kate Middleton inspired dress

Blue and white work for all seasons. Thus, even when you bought a blue and white dress for fall you can style it with open-toe pumps or sandals for now. Later you opt for more sturdy foot gear and may be even wear a cardigan.

Chinos are a bit more dressy than jeans, in my opinion. They are my staple for the transition between the warm and cold season. However, one can don them already on a cool summer day with a classic top, strappy sandals and a statement necklace.

Polka dot dress

I got this polka dot dress in summer for the transition season. Yes, I coudn’t wait to wear it. You saw the dress already twice on the blog. In case you missed it, here are the links how I wore the Pretty Woman inspired dress with tan accessories and a second time I went for a green with cooper outfit. Below see how I styled it for the transition season and earlier in July.
