I always find myself struggling when the summer to fall transition begins. You know, that awkward period of time when its too chilly for sundresses but also too warm to break out our beloved turtleneck sweaters. Brisk mornings lead to blazing heat by noon, and then we're back to the chills by sundown, leaving us fashionably confused to say the least.
My summer wardrobe is beyond exhausted at this point, but I always have a hard time parting ways with my denim cutoffs. Luckily, I'm able to let their closet life last a little longer with a transitional look--I try to do a combination of both summer and fall pieces, which also helps to combat the wacky weather.
For this look, I paired a basic oversized hoodie with my favorite pair of frayed Levi shorts (a thrifted gem). I'm a weirdo--my torso usually gets colder than the rest of my body, so the hoodie was essential for this outfit. I love this play on proportions and unconventionality--usually when a hoodie and shorts are paired together, one can tend to look confused, but I happen to love this combination. Its sporty and chic.
I accessorized with my Nike SB Blazers, my Marc by Marc Jacobs shoulder bag, two thumb rings, and my new Tibetan black quartz crystal necklace. Its all about detail here--the nude color coordination, fraying denim, and minimalist accessories all come together to create a very easygoing transitional look.
Here you have it, a simple outfit idea for transitioning from Summer to Fall. Make use of what's in your closet, play with layering and proportions, be weather-conscious, and just have fun with it!
