Transition To Fall

Hi Ladies,

You know it is almost the end of summer. However, here in Texas it is still really warm. I could keep showing styles for summer temperatures but for many the days and especially nights are becoming cooler.  So let’s talk about transition options.

I am loving two new Fall trends, one is carried over from the summer, which is the classic shirtdress.  They were shown all summer usually in a light color or white cotton. I just picked up a military green shirtdress, which is the 2nd of the two trends I mentioned.  It has been called the “Utilitarian”.  That can refer to uniform like. Anything in that green or khaki color is big for the season.

This dress is really versatile and can be worn with flat shoes for casual or have some fun with it.

For example:

  Or more edgey and fun add some chunky bootie type shoes

P1030512

Here another idea. Let’s take this same dress and use it as a coat.  Fall styles have shown wearing a dress over pants.  In this instance it is similar to a classic trench, lightweight, for a typical fall day. Then to dress it up throw on some heels.  Again in the beige or nude color that is really in and makes you look taller and thinner in my opinion. And why not add a belt!

P1030517

I picked up this dress at T J Maxx for $34.99 which I thought was a deal considering it’s a Kenneth Cole Reaction (with a price tag of $89.99) or similar here.

TIPS:

Play with different options of a classic piece

Dress it up or down

Keep it simple – use accessories to update

Until next time

HAPPY SHOPPING!!
