Tips and Tricks on how to keep wearing your favorite summer staples in fall

The change of seasons signals the start of new shopping sprees. After all, we need to stock up on boots, jeans and other fall necessities. But in these stressful times where most of our budgets keep dwindling, investing in a full-on new wardrobe just isn’t an option. Thankfully, you can still wear your summer staples in fall, thereby getting more bang for your buck. As long as you know a few styling tricks that is.

Now we’re not suggesting you can’t indulge in a few seasonally-appropriate purchases. (Preferably ones you can wear in spring and summer, too.) We’re merely suggesting you don’t stash all of your tank tops, slip dresses, shorts and miniskirts in the back of your closet until next May.

As usual, the street style set is our go-to resource. From helpful layering techniques to how to properly clash, the crew is always a fount of sartorial knowledge. And every season seems to inspire fresh innovations. Like how to keep sporting those made-for-summer bra tops when the weather dips.

Here are the top tips and tricks on how to keep wearing your favorite summer staples in fall.

Make a classic white tank top work for fall by wearing it under a hoodie. Just make sure the hoodie drapes ever so slightly off your shoulders to expose said tank. A neutral slack and sandal combo is the best way to finish off the look.

Keep your black bike shorts in rotation by teaming them with a dark blazer, an equally dark sweater and a striped button-down. Match your socks to the button-down and add in a cool pair of kicks to round out the ensemble.

Wondering how to style all those bra tops? Try sporting one with belted slacks layered under a cool trench. As the weather gets colder, swap out the strappy heels for ankle boots.

Crochet was everywhere this summer and you can carry the trend into fall by slipping a crochet tank over a white button-down. Throw in black flared pants and boots to complete the look. You can always drape a brown coat over top as we head into winter.

We’ve already highlighted what a great pairing Bermuda shorts and tall boots are. A lightweight knit, a coordinating coat and a chunky chain necklace bring the look together.

For those somewhat mild days, wrap up a summery striped shirtdress with a chunky cardigan secured with a bold belt. You can still get away with ankle-strap heels.

Turn a shorts suit into a fall staple by styling it with a turtleneck and tights. The latter will also make sporting sandals all through fall a whole lot easier.
