Dressing For In-between Seasons
Welcome to pre-fall fashion where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. It’s that special time of year when your closet gets confused and we’re all on the struggle bus trying to wear fall trends without sweating!
Instead of pushing ahead and trying to wear fall trends, I’m mixing different seasons from my closet and creating new looks without buying anything new!
It’s my version of “high-low” dressing but instead of putting together expensive and cheap items, I’m pairing clothes from spring and fall to create a seasonal Frankenstein outfit!
Keep scrolling for the final product and to get tips on creating your own unique look!
What I’m Wearing
Flared jeans are a year-round staple but for the purpose of my outfit demonstration, mine were bought in the spring so they automatically feel like a spring item to me. Not to mention they’re a lighter wash which is very reminiscent of the arrival of a new season.
My top was a summer thrift store find and the florals couldn’t be more warm weather appropriate!
When the top and bottom are combined, it creates a look that’s expectant of fall but still cool enough for the hot summer days.
Why My Outfit Works
This outfit is a great example of mixing different seasons from my closet. It’s got the best of various seasons all rolled into one yet feels perfect for the moment.
I love using this style tip to extend the potential of my closet. Why be limited to one certain season or style?
Life’s too short to hang on to clothes for a long time and wait for the right time to wear them. Today could be the right time… unless it’s a wool sweater on a 90 degree day, then you should probably wait. 😉
Looking Ahead To Fall Fashion
There are so many different combinations you could come up with that could have the same effect as my outfit. Think of long pants from the winter with summer tank tops. Or a denim jacket over a light dress!
Let me know what you think of this look and how you’re mixing up the clothes in your closet to get through this transitional fashion season!
