Wear Now & Wear Later: Transitioning Summer Favorites for Fall

Ever wondered how you can wear your summer style favorites through into the fall? In this week's styling feature, we're showing you how to style three classic pieces for you to wear now and wear later. 


Wear now and wear later vintage concert tee fashion

Transitioning the Vintage Tee

Everyone needs a go-to vintage tee in their closet. Made of soft material and with a retro graphic, this stylish staple can be dressed up or down and goes from day to night. This summer, we’ve loved pairing our oversized AC/DC Concert Tee by Junk Food Clothing with this Brave Leather crossbody to create a 70s vibe. The rock ‘n roll and suede fringe combo make for the ultimate throwback. Pair them with a colorful, pastel stack of T Jazelle bracelets to add some femininity and you’ve got yourself a casual but trendy outfit that is perfect for warm days at the beach. 

You may have mastered styling your favorite shirt for summer, but how can you take it into fall when the weather is cooler and the music festivals are over? I’ve got you covered! Trade in your white denim cutoffs for a timeless pair of dark wash jeans. Then, elevate your look by throwing on your trusty black blazer and a pair of nude heels. Add an edgy, mixed metal bracelet like our Two-Tone Cuff by Kendra Phillip and you’ve got yourself a fall-ready outfit that’s just enough party, a little bit of business, and a whole lot of style. Rock on!


How to Wear a Midi Skirt in Fall

Wear Your Midi Skirt Through to Fall

We’ve been obsessing over lady-like midi skirts all summer long! In a bold print and an a-line cut, our Luelle Skirt by Ronen Chen is as flattering as it is eye-catching. Wear this pretty little number now by tucking in a light and airy tank and stepping out in a stacked heel. Add a few crisp accessories like the Brave Leather Viveka Tote and a rustic-but-feminine Enamel and Leather Bracelet by Leighhelena and you’ve got a classy, go-to outfit for date night

It’s easier than you might think to transition a summery midi skirt through to fall! We love that the pattern of this Luelle midi skirt is classic enough to be worn throughout each season just by swapping out a few accessories. Trade in your pastel tank for a soft knit turtleneck in one of fall’s hottest colors and keep your legs warm with an opaque pair of black tights. To keep your legs looking long, choose a sleek pair of booties with eye-catching elements like a shiny side zipper and add a sophisticated arm party of Kendra Phillip cuffs (our favorites are the Jade Bracelet and Gina Bracelet).


How to Wear Ankle Jeans in Fall

Sport Ankle Jeans in Cool Weather

Ankle jeans are our favorite way to rock denim in the summer months. All you need is a romantic, flowy tank, the perfect pair of neutral sandals, and a boho-chic T Jazelle necklace and you’ll feel pulled together while still remaining casual. Top your outfit off with a Diamond Handwoven Tote by Jenny Krauss and you’re ready to stock up on fresh flowers at the farmer’s market or head out for a day on the boardwalk.

But how do you wear your ankle jeans when the days get cooler? Roll the hem up once and trade in your sandals for a neutral pair of ankle booties! The few inches of skin will add a refreshing dash of playfulness to a super chic outfit while keeping your tootsies warm and your legs looking fabulous. A striped shirt is a vital part of every woman’s fall uniform but can be softened with a drapey jacket and a delicate clutch like this Antique Gold one by Brave Leather.


There you have it! You can still snatch up your favorite summer pieces to wear now and then rock later come fall.
