As summer turns into fall one of the hardest things, for me, is finding transition clothing that I can actually wear now and be able to wear later. I live in the South so it is warm here most of the year, but as summer ends the evenings can start to get chilly and as we get into September and October a cold day can come out of nowhere. I like clothing that is versatile and can be styled multiple ways. Investing in versatile pieces that give me the most “bang for my buck” are my favorites. I love clothing that gives me lots of effortless options!! I added 3 pieces to my closet this year that are staples for any wardrobe and also make great transitional pieces that you can wear now and wear later. I am so excited to wear these pieces now and into the fall!
3 Wear Now, Wear Later Staples:
1- I love the relaxed look of a denim shirt! It just looks so effortlessly stylish. You can dress it up or down and it seems to automatically make you look cool! I love pairing it with a black skirt and some fun pumps for a more dressed up or work look. I plan on trying the denim on denim trend this fall and can’t wait to style my denim shirt with my favorite jeans! Adding a denim shirt to your wardrobe gives you tons of options. Rolling the sleeves makes it a great shirt to wear now, why it is still warm, and later when it gets cold you can roll them down or layer a sweater or cardigan over it.
2 & 3- Leather jacket, distressed denim. Need I say more!? These closet staples reign supreme year after year and never go out of style! One of the most important things when looking for transitional wardrobe pieces is their ability to be versatile and give you lots and lots of options. These 2 pieces are the definition of versatile! A smorgasbord of options at your fingertips plus the added bonus of looking and feeling super stylish and cool! The leather jacket looks great with dresses, skirts, t-shirts, sweaters, tanks, tennies, heels, boots, you name it and it looks good with it! I used to really dislike ripped denim. I just could not wrap my head around paying money for ripped jeans!!! Then I tried a pair (thanks Instagram for the positive peer pressure!) and I loved them! I can dress them up or down, they have that comfy, relaxed, “I am so chill” weekend vibe that we all want to hang on to, even during the weekdays! Like the leather jacket they go with virtually everything effortlessly giving you endless outfit options! These 2 pieces just make sense and always will!!
Finding good wear now, wear later pieces that can transition your wardrobe from summer to fall can be challenging! You want to invest in pieces that give you lots of styling options and that you can start wearing now and still wear 2 months from now. If you want the most “bang for your buck” like I do these 3 pieces fit the bill and give you change! Add them to your closet! Now!!
Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate it! Stay fabulous! xoxo
