As we begin to transition from August to Autumn, you might be thinking it's time to start packing up all your summery tanks and dresses. But not so fast! With a little layering and a fresh fall aesthetic, you can keep wearing your favorite sleeveless summer styles all year long!
The easiest way to keep wearing sleeveless tops throughout the changing seasons is to add layers. Try using your tank as a base layer for a hoodie or add a kimono for major Autumn apple-orchard vibes. Best of all? Because the weather in the early fall tends to fluctuate between slightly chilly to sweating from every crevice, layers allow you to stay prepared for everything from sunshine to a surprise cold snap (sometimes all in one day!) all season long.
Swap Out Your Sandals For Booties
I understand the desire to wear Birks year-round (guilty), but if you're trying to amp up your Autumn style while still utilizing components from your summer wardrobe, swapping out your sandals for boots or booties is one of the fastest and easiest ways to "fall up" any outfit. But not just booties! Ballet flats, Chucks, and almost any other close-toed shoe will give a similar effect.
Incorporate Fall Colors
What colors come to mind when you hear the word fall? Perhaps you think of apple reds, mustardy yellows, and pine greens. Incorporating summer styles into your fall wardrobe can sometimes be as simple as paying attention to the color palettes. Disclaimer: can colors like carnation pinks and robin egg blues still be worn in the fall? ABSO-FREAKING-LOUTLEY! Wear what makes you look and feel your best. But, if you're trying to give off serious pumpkin spice vibes, try to stick to the more traditional fall colors.
Keep It Casual With Jeans
Swapping out shorts for jeans in the Fall is a simple way to extend your summer style for a few extra months. The overall vibe of the outfit is the same, but the length of the pants provides you with a much more Autumny-feel. I personally love to wear my sleeveless tops with jeans and sandals well into the Fall, because it perfectly embodies the balance between the changing seasons and weather patterns.
Add A Robe And Rock It For Loungewear
Listen. When I'm in the comfort of my own home, all sense of stylish self-awareness goes right out the window. Just give me a cozy tank, a butter-softy robe, and some boxer shorts, and I'll be well on my way to living my best life. So if you're anything like me, maybe reconsider packing away your sleeveless styles and use them as loungewear throughout the colder months. Not only will you be cute and comfortable, but the bright summer memories attached to your favorite tanks will help brighten up even the longest winter nights.
