Here, we’ll tell you how you can up-cycle your current closet to make it fall festive. Get ready to hunker down possibly with a warm drink, as we tell you our top tips to turn any wardrobe into the perfect fall style.
1. Add layers
As the weather gets cooler in the fall, you’ll find yourself reaching for an extra layer anyway. Be sure to have a few sweaters, cardigans, jackets, or ponchos. Let the layers show by leaving jackets open (while you can). This will create the perfect cozy look. You can mix textures to increase intrigue. Best of all, this is the perfect way to ensure that you’re dressed for whatever fall throws your way. If it’s a chilly morning, add a jacket that you can take off once it warms up in the afternoon.
2. Buy the perfect pair of boots
You can transform almost any outfit into a fall look with a jacket and a good pair of boots. Boots are versatile, so you don’t have to have too many. Keep your boots a nice neutral tone. A black, beige, or brown will allow you to mix and match most outfits. Be sure to get a comfortable pair, your boots can go with you into winter.
3. Choose fall colors
Fall is a time of earthy tones. Think of the landscape when you plan your fall wardrobe. Deep reds, oranges, yellows, subtle greens, and earthy browns will create a great fall-inspired look. Beiges and grays are also great options this time of year. However, while many often shy away from adding a pop of color to their fall wardrobe, don’t be afraid to let your colors shine. When creating a fall look, it’s more important that your color palettes and simple and cohesive. Try crafting your looks around just 3 to 5 colors for fall.
4. Repurpose summer dresses (or buy some new ones!)
If you love wearing dresses in summer, don’t put them away just yet. A summer dress can make a great addition to a fall wardrobe on warmer days. Simply pair your dress with your boots. Add a light jacket, cardigan, or scarf for some added layers. As the weather gets cooler, you can add a pair of tights or leggings to extend the dress season.
Looking the part in fall does not have to be hard. Repurposing your favorite dresses, t-shirts, and jeans from summer with some fall additions is the perfect way to create a hassle-free fall style.
