Summer to Fall Transitional Pieces

Don't hang up your summer clothes just yet because I have a few simple ways to make your favorite pieces stretch into the colder months. For my fellow college students, we can't always afford to buy a whole new wardrobe every time the seasons change. All that means is we get to be a little more creative!

  • Sarong into head wrap/turban | Transform your favorite beach cover up into a fashionable way to stay warm. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube to make fabulous, and easy, head wraps so don't be afraid to try your hand at this trend.
  • Crop tops over maxi dresses | This kills two birds with one stone. Both items were wildly popular this summer and will be just as popular if layered together. This style provides warmth and an unique silhouette. Add a thick scarf and some boots and you're ready to go.
  • Tank tops and outerwear | One article I never retire during the fall (to the disdain of my mother) is a good tank top. While the trend of pairing them over long sleeve shirts may be long gone with snap bracelets and butterfly clips, there are other ways to stay warm. Layer them with chunky sweaters, leather jackets, or military jackets to stay in style and out of the nurse's office. 
While many may be storing away their summer essentials, mine are still hanging in my closet. Just because the weather is changing, doesn't mean you have to put your favorite pieces away until next year. Working with your summer articles forces you to be more creative with your outfits and is a really fun challenge. 

What head-turning outfits will you be creating this season? If you have an amazing OOTD using summer pieces that you'd like to share, post it on Twitter or Instagram and tag #summertofall. Your creation may be featured on my next F+ post!
