September 12th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 7 Outfits to Inspire Your Summer to Fall Style

It’s that time of year again. The mornings and evenings are getting cooler, but summer’s heat still lingers during the day. No matter the actual weather, something about the beginning of September has us itching to pull out our knits, booties, and coats.  Dressing with light layers, muted tones, and key fall accessories will tide you over until its time to fully transition your closet from warm weather to cold.

Take a look at these 7 blogger outfits to inspire your summer-to-fall style!

 

Kristen

Kristen, WhoWhatWear
WhoWhatWear editor Kristen knows that a blazer is the perfect topper during transitional weather. It provides lightweight coverage that a coat would be too heavy for.

Elifnaz, Belle Melange
Elifnaz’s outfit is perfect for early fall. A muted, long-sleeve floral blouse paired with a denim midi skirt and sneakers will keep you comfortable from morning to evening.

 

Samantha

Samantha, Could I Have That?
I love Samantha’s refreshing way of layering two lightweight tops for a little extra coverage.

A good hat is the way to my heart, and with a cool breeze in the air, fall is the best time to break out your hat collection!

September 11th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Fall Outerwear Pieces for the New Season

After another hot and humid summer, we’re excited for the weather to finally cool down. Fall is here, and what do you do when the weather starts to get chilly? Warming your hands in front of the heater is one option, but our favorite is having a handful of outerwear pieces to get you through those brisk fall days.

Here are six key fall outerwear pieces you should pick up this fall!

1. With a classic olive green utility jacket and a scarf, you’re set for any and all fall outings this season. 

 

P2 - June Sixty Five

2. Recreate this look with a suede biker jacket and a plain white t-shirt.

 

P3 - Lisa Olsson

3. When the weather is colder than usual, slip into a long and cozy shearling jacket. Tone down the teddy-bear look by pairing it with some simple black clothing as your foundation. 

 

P4 - Masha Sedgwick

4. Nothing says fall quite like a rust-colored cardigan!

 

P5 - The Chriselle Factor

5. Trench coats are always a classic fall staple. They’re universally flattering, come in a variety of patterns, and–best of all—can instantly elevate an outfit.

 

P6 - Viva Luxury

6. The best thing about bomber jackets is that they’re incredibly versatile and can be worn in any season. For your next brunch out with your gal pals, go casual in bomber jacket paired with your favorite skinny jeans.
