The Seasons are Changing Soon, What do I Wear? Or...dressing into Fall on the Summerside

Dressing into Fall on the Summerside...what does that even mean?  Here in West Michigan we are heading in to Fall, and I for one, couldn't be happier.  I LOVE Fall.  I love the colors, the scents, the temperatures and of course, the fashion.  I enjoy dressing in the Fall most of all.  Dressing into Fall on the Summerside refers to how to dress as we transition to the Fall season while still lingering in the Summer season.  Some days now it's still in Summer temperatures but some days and many evening begin to take on cooler temperatures.  The number one way to dress during this time involves layers. 

Layering not only gives you more options but it helps carry over the pieces you love from both seasons.  As I always say - first - Ownyourstyle - make this work for you.  For your lifestyle and sense of style how will you dress during this time.  Here are my best tips for layering as we head in to "Fall on the Summerside."

Jackets and Cardigans ....

Extend the shorts wearing season by pairing shorts with jackets, long sleeve tops and blouses 

Long Vest or Gilli.  They add color, style and an extra layer.

Dresses over jeans or leggings.  This is probably my favorite!  If you follow my instagram  (if not, you should be!) you already know this!  I am excited to see this continue as a trend for fall.  You really do create endless possibilities with this look.  Depending on the style of the dress, you can layer with leggings, skinny jeans or skinny khakis look great for any season.

As we begin to transition to Fall, don't pack all the warm weather clothes away just yet.  It's time to mix and match between seasons and get the most from your wardrobe, all the while owning your style.  I hope these looks inspire you to shop your closet and create some new looks to carry you thru.
