With fall officially here, the transition from summer to fall apparel is in full swing. But, with the weather being pretty fickle in fall, it can be difficult to determine what look to wear now and what you need to put away in storage from summer. To help, we’ve pulled together a few of our most concerning fall fashion faux pas and alternative looks to consider.
Still Wearing Summer Clothes
While your floral sundresses may seem like a good idea to pair with your fall boots, we have to advise against it. Put away those bright summer sundresses and beach cover ups until next summer. Of course, you can still wear bright colors, but just make sure your outfits are weather-appropriate. This includes open toed shoes or sandals as well!
As an alternative, tights with peep toe shoes can be cute paired with a maxi skirt or dress. Pictured skirt from: Macy’s
White on White on White
We know the old-school rule of “no white after labor day” has now retired however, you should still proceed with caution here. Wearing too much white-white after Labor Day weekend can still come off as more of a summer look.
Instead, try to wear ivory, light greys, winter whites or nude colors. Pictured chinos from: Loft
There are better outfits to lounge around in, head to the gym or even put on something comfortable to grocery shop. For those who are excited to break out their 90s track suits now that the cold weather is approaching, put down the velour…forever.
As an alternative, settle for some laid back boyfriend jeans and a cute sweatshirt or sweater. If you’re going to the gym, well, almost every popular brand now has an active line! Pictured boyfriend jeans from: Anthropologie
Overly tight clothes
As women, we want to buy clothes that flaunt what we’ve got and show off our natural, beautiful curves. But sometimes, we can try too hard to make sure every curve is shown off…and we mean EVERY curve. That can be way too much and, not to mention, uncomfortable. With summer-filled string bikinis and tight mini dresses, we can jump into fall with a more relaxed, comfortable look while still maintaining a feminine figure.
