Maxi dresses, rompers, and more: What to wear for every Fall occasion you’ll ever come across
Changing outfits through the seasons can be a tricky thing, especially in that summer-to-fall period. It’s not extremely hot anymore, but it’s not wintry cold yet either. It helps to have items in your closet that can work for both types of weather, as these pieces will definitely protect you from the harsh elements that surprise you throughout the day.
Take advantage of this time to use your best summer looks and style them up for fall – you’ll never see them again when winter comes. Take some cues from a maxi dress, for example. It’s easy to layer plus, it looks elegant and fitting no matter what the occasion is.
Updating your wardrobe to transition to a new season is a piece of cake if you stay true to your personal style. Transforming your closet to fit Fall’s crisp air can be done with a few tricks like switching from might colors to deeper, richer shades. Layering is essential, too, so bring out your kimonos, jean jackets, light coats, and bold scarves for a pop of color.
Here are our suggestions for what to wear for every occasion you might encounter this colder season.
