It’s that time of year again where we stand uncertainly in front of our closets, wondering what in the world to wear. Summer has nearly come to a close, yet we have yet to anticipate the upcoming cozy fall fashions. One day of the week is bright, warm, and sunny; the next day is filled with the cloudy coolness of fall. Stuck in between the bright floral sundresses and espadrilles of summer and the bohemian-chic knitwear and cardigans of fall, it’s easy to fall into a fashion rut just about now. Have no fear, fellow fashionistas! Take a look at how these Chictopians incorporated summer basics with fall accessories for some transitional dressing inspiration:
As proclaimed by the title of her most recent post, Chictopia Style Icon, deathbyplatforms sure loves her vintage. Here, she sports a great transitional outfit by combining an airy pastel blouse and warm-weather floral shorts with a sharp fuchsia blazer, black leather ankle boots, and a jaunty Parisian beret. The long-sleeved blazer balances out the fitted shorts, and the statement boots and beret complement each other, drawing attentions towards both the upper and lower halves of her ensemble, working together in a transitional fashion harmony.
New Chictopia member, fashionably_black , puts a unique twist on the standard “jeans and a cute top” look. Her retro black bustier, classic cropped acid wash jeans, and summer-perfect wedges get a dose of fall glamour with a sheer, floor-grazing black jacket and sophisticated and regal updo. She tops off this elegant outfit with an exotic gold pendant necklace and smart black glasses. If this breezy August day experiences a bout of heat, she can simply remove her black jacket in order to accommodate the ever-changing weather. Voila!
Edgy trendsetter, DeLaCruz , sports an on-trend bohemian look that’s ideal for both summer and fall weather conditions. In a medley of gypsy-like creativity and texture, she pairs a lightweight geometric-print mini dress and peep-toe brown leather clogs with a sumptuous fur vest and lacey head wrap. The tribal vibe of her dress and clogs hark to this past summer’s trends, while the oversized fur vest and color scheme of her ensemble point towards the upcoming 70’s bohemian vibe of fall 2010.
There’s no need to spend your nights chewing down your fingernails, nervously contemplating the possibilities of tomorrow’s outfit. Take a hint from these stylish Chictopians, and let your outfits peacefully transition from summer into fall. Even the most bizarre of weather changes shouldn’t present a problem to your wardrobe, when mastered with the style weapons of creativity and inspiration.
