Can you believe it’s already fall? 2015 is seriously flying by so fast that soon enough, we’ll all be worrying about what to wear when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. Before we plan ahead, how about we discuss something that needs to be addressed: How in the world do we continue to wear our favorite summer trends in the fall? We’ve seen LOTS of trends popping up all over the place this summer, from bold white, off-the-shoulder tops to chunky heels, and much more. Now let us help you to continue rocking those items you dished your money on so you can keep the spirit alive! See below for our tips on how to wear your favorite summer trends into the fall.
The summer heat may have given us weird tan lines if you were a fan of those off-the-shoulder tops, but once the fall comes, you won’t have to worry about that anymore. So how do you wear an off-the-shoulder top without looking like you just came back from the beach? Simple. Pair your tops with some long-length pants. In my personal opinion, I would opt out of the boho, wide-legged pants unless you’re going for the Coachella/bohemian vibe. Then by all means, go for it!
Chunky Platform Shoes
Your feet need loving, too. Platforms made its way back into our closets just when we thought we were done with them after their appearance back in the late ‘90s! So, you can’t pair them with your favorite daisy dukes or dress… but you know what goes best with them? Frilly socks. We’re talking about the ones that your mom used to make you wear when you were younger. Fan of the platform cut-out heels, perhaps? Bust out those stockings. They’ll cover your toes, plus make your shoes really pop.
Denim Button Up Skirts
Denim skirts made a huge comeback this summer, but it’s not the mini-skirts circa early 2000s. No—we’re talking about the ones that look really similar to the ones from the 1970s, and that’s why we’re obsessed. (I mean, come on. Fashion has a way of bringing back past looks!) Still attached to your skirt, but it’s a tad bit too cold for bare legs? This is a perfect example of where your tights come in. Better yet, you can rock tights in literally any color, and it’ll go with this skirt.
Forget what you hear about how you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Do whatever you want! You don’t need to listen to some fashion myth. White was seen everywhere, and you can easily slip this into your fall wardrobe this year. Without going into white overload every single time, pair your favorite white piece with a contrasting color to make it really pop.
Rather than wearing their night slips for, well, the night, fashionistas have brought these looks outside the house. With the fact that colder temperatures are sure to make their way in, the only way to rock this thin material is by layering. Layers on layers on layers. That’s the only way to go, isn’t it?
