I don’t know about your location, but Chicagoland is extremely temperature confused. Two days its 80+ degrees and the next its 60 and rainy. I desperately want to break out the cozy sweaters, but fear I may internally cook myself. Let’s face it. There is nothing fashionable about knit sweaters and over the knee boots while you’re drenched in sweat.
All of that brings me to TRANSITIONAL OUTFITS. With three items, you can mix and match to create weather appropriate outfits. Think a mix of fall and summer fashion, but less sweaty.
Three Must-Have Pieces to Create Fall Transitional Outfits
1. Jean + Leather Jackets: You KNOW how much I LOVE my jean jacket. Denim is just as popular in the fall as it was in the summer. This round, though, its a little more functional. Pop it over a sundress with fall tones for a cool, autumnal look. A leather jacket can add an edgier splash of fall.
2. Cropped Sweaters: This is an easy way to pumpkin SPICE up your look. Take one of your favorites dresses and top it off with a cropped sweater. This will make your outfit look like a classic two piece.
3. Booties: We all know fall is the season to break out boots. Short ankle boots can give you that fall factor without over heating your legs.
While some new pieces are nice, new isn’t necessary for a fresh look. What are you rocking this hot and cold season?
