I’m not going to say fall, I’ll just say that the ”cooler weather” or ”chillier summer evenings” are coming and it’s best to be prepared with some stylish and practical transition pieces. I don’t know about you, but I want to make my summer dresses go the distance, considering I’ve barely had three months use (see: Ottawa weather this year). Therefore, my plan is to carry them over into the cooler weather by adding a few key accessories. For practical reasons (warmth) – pair your favourite dress or skirt with ankle boots; not only do they keep your feet warm, the look is super stylish. Same goes for scarves. If you have a floral dress, try a color-blocking scarf or tiny polka dot print.
My other 3 accessories that are a must-have for transitioning: a fall hat, trend jewelry, and a dark hued purse ( I love cognac!). I picked this fedora from J. Crew, because it doesn’t completely leave the summer in the dust and is the true definition of a transition piece. When I say ”trend” jewelry, I mean, switch the beach-y beads for new autumn jewels, like a layered gold necklace with pearls or a chunky turquoise ring. Finally, swap your totes and straw bags for a rich leather bag with bold hardware; the Tartano from Aldo is on my list!
