Bringing Your Summer Wardrobe Into Fall

We’re welcoming back Audrey today (yay!).  Her recent guest post on how to put together a re-mixable wardrobe was such a hit that I asked her to come back and bestow some more of her wisdom on us.  Check out her easy tips on how to transition your look from summer to fall…


Hello again, everyone!  My name is Audrey and I blog at Putting Me Together, a style blog that aims to help women maximize their wardrobe and hopefully spend less money on clothes.


I don’t know about you, but I love wearing dresses in the spring and summer. And as fall approaches, I’m still not ready to give up those dresses!  So, today I have a couple of tips for making those summery dresses transition into cooler weather as the seasons change.


First, the easiest piece.  I simply added tights and boots and instantly I turned my summer dress into a fall outfit.  I threw on a cardigan and I was good to go. Easy enough, right?


To make the dress feel even more appropriate for fall, I also chose different colors.  For the spring look on the right, I paired the dress with bright colors while for the fall look on the left, I stuck with neutrals and more muted colors. With just a few easy tweaks you can get more mileage out of your dresses!


If you would like tips on finding dresses that can be mixed and matched like this, read this post on Shopping for Remixable Pieces and check out the rest of the Building a Remixable Wardrobe Series.


Thanks again for having me!
