Tips: Extend Your Summer Clothes Through Fall

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Not so long ago, each season had its own wardrobe with very few grey areas allowing you to wear certain clothes all year long. Things have changed. I would even say that, with some exceptions (such as linen in summer), most clothes can easily cross the seasons, as long as you know how to mix and match them.

 

To illustrate this point, here are a few items – with a “summery look” at first glance – that can be used as transition clothes into the fall season, and even be worn all year long.


 

Denim jacket

A wardrobe essential and true 4 season piece: on a little summer dress, over a turtleneck sweater in fall, as a jacket in winter and light coat in spring. For great versatility, choose fairly dark denim. 

De la Baie d'Hudson
Jessica Simpson denim jacket $ 69

 

Fine knit sweater
We love its lightness in warm weather, and it is easy to place on top of other clothes to create our favourite fall looks. Also, grey is a neutral colour that fits with almost any other colour.

De la Baie d'Hudson
Vero Moda sweater  39 $ (buttoned at the back)


 

Floral print tight pants
This capri, great for the summer wardrobe, could easily be matched with grey suede boots and a cream sweater for fall. Add a denim jacket, a scarf and gloves when the weather gets chillier.

Limité
Capri $ 20

 


 

Light skinny jeans
Light grey or white jeans like these would look great inside brown or cognac riding boots. Get the perfect look for fall with a tweed or suede jacket.

Jean Bleu
Jeans - BH jeans $ 39,99

Ultra-light tank
Worn simply under the sun, you can also have this cute printed tank under a seasonal grey or navy blue suit for your first day back to work. Hide the knot inside your pants (or skirt) for a more classic look, or leave it out for an original fashion touch.

Ardène
Tank $ 14,50
