Swap Out Your Summer Staples For Fall Fashion

It’s officially fall, which means it's time to swap out our summer staples for some new fall fashion! Here in California, it’s not quite cold enough to bundle up yet, but we can still enjoy some of the latest trends this season! Hopefully, these outfits will give you some inspiration as you update your wardrobe for the new season or simply try to transition from your summer styles into fall fashion!

Browns and Neutrals:

A neutral, monochrome look is always an easy way to look stylish. Fall is the perfect time to experiment with wearing more earthy colors and jewel tones such as tan, ivory, and emerald green. For this look, I paired some cream wide-leg jeans with a neutral colored floral tank. I also added my favorite brown, everyday sandals from Plato’s Closet and finished off the look with a dark jewel-toned bag. By simply swapping out your summer shorts for a pair of thick jeans, you can continue to wear your favorite summer tanks as you transition into fall!

Midi Dresses and Strappy Heels:

Simple, strappy sandals have become one of my favorite current shoe trends. They pair well with just about anything, from dresses to jeans and a graphic tee. If it’s still slightly warm in your area, you can still wear your favorite summer dresses into fall by simply adding a denim jacket or cardigan over them. Leather jackets are also another fall staple that you could easily add to your dresses. I typically go for autumnal shades, such as this sage green.


Tennis Skirts and Bulky Sweaters:

When I think of the top fashion trends this season, at the top of the list is certainly tennis skirts. These sporty little skirts have moved from the court into mainstream fashion, and I am obsessed! For this look, I threw on an oversized sweater and finished the look with some platform converse for some extra height. Following the preppy vibes, argyle sweaters are another trend this fall and pair great with tennis skirts. This look is totally customizable depending on the climate too. For colder days, layer a collared shirt under the sweater, this will add a preppy detail and keep you extra warm! If you have a black tennis skirt, layer some black tights underneath with matching black shoes and you’ll have another great (and warm) outfit!


Textured Handbags:

Another major trend I’ve been seeing this season is crocodile-patterned or snakeskin-textured handbags. These bags are the perfect accessory to make any outfit look more put-together. I recommend accessorizing with fall colors like this burnt orange. Jewel tones are always a staple in any fall wardrobe, look for emerald green, ruby red, and amethyst purple accessories to finish off your looks!


Cardigans and Bold Prints:

This fall, bold patterns are definitely popular, from gingham to patchwork denim. This cropped zebra print cardigan is a great example of how you can easily incorporate bold patterns into your wardrobe this fall. I kept the rest of the outfit simple and opted for this red bag to tie the look together and add a pop of color.

Hopefully, these outfits give you some inspiration as you transition from your summer styles to fall fashion!
