By now, you probably have your summer favorites teased out: the linen dress, the white pants, the whisper-weight blouse that goes with everything. As fall approaches, you may feel the urge to retire those workhorses to the far corners of your closet. Don’t. Instead, try styling them in new-to-you ways that will work in cooler weather. Below, four sartorial strategies to help you bridge the seasons.
Black separates that you may have split up in summertime can be worn together for a more-serious feel. A burgundy belt, a textured tote, and lug-sole loafers lend a refined edge.
Add a Light Layer
Shrug a quilted jacket over the G. Label dress you’ve been living in for the past month to add warmth on a brisk day. Heavy-duty Chelsea boots offset the femininity of the (very cute) ruffle collar.
Turn Up the Contrast
These wide-legs are too good to tuck away after Labor Day. Wear them with a black blouse and sleek leather boots—because black and white is a classic pairing that works year-round.
Weave in Texture
Keep your cargo pants in rotation with a creamy knit vest and shearling-lined slip-ons. Drive the look home with a stroke of gold at the wrist and a canvas-and-camel-leather crossbody.
