closet remix: summer/ fall
As is customary on most Monday holidays, I spent the morning in my pajamas and played in my closet. It was the perfect day to assess what pieces will carry me into fall as the temperature drops without needing to completely re-up on stylish components. Keep reading for five fall looks using things you loved to wear last season...
Chances are you already have a light jacket in case of temperature emergencies when warm spring days turn into not-so warm spring nights. If that jacket happens to be denim, you’re in luck because it makes for an excellent layering piece for fall. Dress it down by pairing it with a white tee or class it up with skinny black pants. Match the hardware to your jewelry or accessories and you’re in business.
My closet is packed full of things I can wear and re-wear without needing much imagination. This means, for the most part, that a lot of my wardrobe is black which comes in very handy when fishnets season rolls around. The look of these tights can be alluring so a statement piece like an exotic skin bag, a neutral cocktail dress or gold accents balance out the “sexy-ness” of the look.
I bought the cutest pair of distressed, patchwork jeans at LOFT and I absolutely love the way you can make them look more expensive by pairing them with a large, classy bag. They're playful and make a statement with very little effort. You can also dress the look down by working in a tee shirt or upgrade it with a softened monochromatic look in grey or pastel.
My L.L. Bean tote is my go-to travel bag for vacation. Paired with khakis, especially those with pockets, they're the perfect combination for a day trip or long weekend. Authentic khakis often have some kind of grommet or hardware button which makes matching metallic jewelry and fall neutrals easy.
I often reach for a crisp white button up shirt as a cover-up in the summer but in the fall, the same look can serve as a gentle dose of menswear when paired with a feminine touch like high waisted pants or delicate accessories that match the bold hue of your digits or footwear.
