Goodbye Summer, Hello Pre-Fall

It's that beautiful time of the year where we bid adieu to the summer styles and welcome the transitional styles into the cooler weather.  Pre-fall is all about transitioning. Don't start packing up your summer wardrobe or staples just yet. A lot of what you already own will most likely work in this transitional period. Are you wondering what's trending or what you should pick up to compliment what you may already have? You've come to the right place. 

Transitional pieces:
Jumpsuits/rompers- these are some of the easiest pieces to transition. These garments saw a bit of an explosion in popularity in the spring and summer so you may already own one. You can add some tights or nylons under your rompers or use a leather jacket, moto jacket, or cardigan to pair over your jumpsuit. 

Black and white- The summer saw an unexpected trend in black and white pieces. Since these are classic staples you can effortlessly bring them into fall. If you have shorts or capris pair with an oversized sweater or layers. If you have black or white tops pair with burgundy, navy, or even brown pants or pencil skirts. 

Crochet shorts- pair with a pair of burgundy, navy, mustard, or black nylons/tights underneath. Edgy tops pair well too. 

Harem pants- tuck in a simple v neck top in any fall shade, pair with a cardigan or choose a fall pattern. 

Bikini tops and crop tops- plus size fashion got a taste of the cropped life and also we had options for bikinis this year. You can take your Bikini top or crop top and use it as a layering piece. Under a blazer, these also work well. 

Neon- neon pairs well with many of the fall pieces below. Pop of neon is great for fall but don't overdo it and don't pair with white. It will read too summer. Neon flats are also a great option. 

Floral- pair with edgy pieces  or match with fall shads. 

What should you consider picking up for fall?
Leather peices or leather accents- leather skirts, leather leggings, leather tops, leather accents, leather jackets- They can can add a lot of edge to any outfit but be feminized by pairing work neon, floral, lace, or crochet pieces. 

Knit leggings- these will keep your legs warm and transition you well into the winter months. There are some great shades and designs this season such as burgundy, charcoal, and navy, don't just stick to black! 

Patterns and shades for fall:
Black and white
Royal blue

More traditional?
The most traditional staples for fall include animal prints, military styles, basic fall shades like oranges, browns, reds, nudes. Lace and leather are also on the traditional spectrum if worn in more retro ways. 

When planning your fall wardrobe remember the best rule of all- make shre to have fun! If you don't like to take risks maybe now is your chance to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.
