Though the sweltering heat of August is upon us, I can't help but think about fall clothing already. The layering, the sweaters, the crisp air that make great hair days! Now is the perfect time to begin slowly warming yourself up to a cooler wardrobe. Take this dress, for example: I have worn it out this summer, wearing it 1-2 times a week! To take it into pre-fall, I added a light silk scarf that breathes wonderfully and traded sandals for ankle boots. I am wearing similar jewelry to my normal go-to for this dress, so putting this outfit together was fairly brainless. Same dress, same jewelry, just add a scarf and switch up the shoes. Easy, right?
For cooler months, I will slip into a pair of sweater tights and rock a turtleneck underneath (turtlenecks FTW) and be good to go! There is absolutely no reason why you can't wear some of your wardrobe year round! This "summer wardrobe" and "winter wardrobe" does not work here in south LA, so rethink the rules and, dare I say it, think twice about how to make versatile what you already own.
Go forth and reconquer your wardrobe.
