It’s fall, y’all! Well not technically. It’s September, that transition month where it’s slowly getting cooler but the sun is still blazing away. So what to wear?
Black + brights
Take your favorite summer tanks — those bright, wild prints — and pair them with black jeans or a black skirt.
Bare legs still get a pass for now (so long as you have boots or a closed-toe shoe). And black tights are going to look kinda vampy this early in fall. So go for some colors! Saw the gal above rocking navy tights and a plum dress with metallic flats.
Dresses + boots
Pair your beloved, flowy, comfy summer dresses with knee-high boots or ankle-high booties.
Black + white
The foolproof combo for early fall and spring, black and white is always classy. While white pants or white shoes might be a bit much in September, try a white cardi (over your dress + boots outfit or over a bright summer tank and dark jeans). Or keep wearing those beloved white/light accessories for a while to offset the new darker, richer colors in your wardrobe.
Gold shoes. Rose gold jewelry. Silver skinny belts. In summer they looked best at night; now they add a romantic touch during the day.
Now is the easiest time of all to wear ankle-skimming pants and jeans with heels or flats.
