Summer-to-Fall Transition Vibes from the Nordstrom Sale
July 19th, 2018
I love the transition from summer to fall. The slight chill in the air, stunning natural colors and of course fall fashion! We’re not quite there yet — but the annual Nordstrom Sale reminds us we are just a few months away. So, what do you do with all of your favorite summer pieces when the cooler temps set in? Chances are, you can still integrate them into your wardrobe by simply layering fall favs with summer staples. Here’s a look at how I did this with a few key pieces from the Nordstrom Sale.
Denim shorts and t-shirts are a must for me during the summer months but I also love to keep them in my rotation when autumn arrives. Making denim shorts work in the fall is actually quite easy, as it’s more about what you pair them with than the shorts themselves. This fab long-line blazer adds a layer of warmth — and brings these summer staple shorts into fall with ease.
Fall is all about luxe, so I made sure my accessories had an extra pop of style. I chose a statement belt bag — worn around the waist or as a crossbody. “Fanny packs” get a bad rap, and often deservedly so, but I do love to integrate a trend like this into my wardrobe when it makes sense, like with this fun look. For shoes, these Sam Edelman suede pumps elongate the leg and add a bit of sophistication to the shorts. Voila — a summer-to-fall success!
Remember, although you should always add some fun new pieces to your wardrobe each season, there’s no reason your closet should be cut in half by changing temperatures. A chic mix and match of summer fabrics and colors with fall’s knits, textures and finishes makes it possible to create one-of-a-kind looks all year long. A little lace popping out from under a chunky knit? A slip dress with a suede topper? A peasant dress with over-the-knee boots and a leather jacket? So much yes!
Stylist’s Tip: Instantly update your summer look with a cool fall vibe by choosing a richly pigmented lip color, like a bold burgundy. The lip will be a fun balance to your summer look, says my makeup guru gal Jorden Spencer at Nordstrom Milwaukee!
