Living in California my whole life has definitely spoiled me with a late fall season. Often the temperatures will begin to cool at night first, so there can be as much as 40 degree difference in a single day as the transition between seasons occurs. Since I keep a year-round minimal wardrobe, I like to be able to take my favorite items with me when the weather changes. Today I’m sharing some of my best tips for extending the life of your summer favorites into fall.
1. Dress in layers.
The easiest way to extend your warm weather clothing into cooler weather is to dress in layers like I did in the featured outfit. I’m wearing my favorite summer slip dress but I’ve paired it with a warmer sweater to help take it into fall.
2. Switch to winter shoes.
Put your sandals in a safe place until next summer and switch to warmer shoes like boots and sneakers for the fall season. Instead of wearing my usual sandals with the dress above, I swapped them out for a favorite pair of booties.
3. Think outside the box.
Traveling frequently in places with varying temperatures has forced me to think outside the box a little more than usual. One of my favorite ways to do this is to wear a one-piece swimsuit like a bodysuit.
