Summer-to-Fall Essentials That Look Good on Everyone

Hi friends!

It's Wednesday, which means it's Hump Day and I'm feeling particularly humpalicious! I'm not entirely sure what that means, but let's just roll with it shall we?

Last night was the season finale of Pretty Little Liars, and I couldn't be more satisfied! Well at least until about the last 15-30 seconds when they said 5 Years Later. Seriously, my life was finally complete. I've been watching this show from the beginning (however many years that is) and I FINALLY got the answer to who A was, with an ENTIRE backstory that explained EVERYTHING (won't spoil anything) and then they had to hint that the whole thing is pretty much starting up again. I just may have to take up residence in Radley myself after that plot twist.


But the show is over until Winter, which means my weekly fix for all things dramatic and fashionable, or fashionably dramatic or dramatically fashionable (however you want to put it) is on hold. Although summer fashion shows are now coming to an end, signaling the impending chill of fall, don't rush to ditch your summer duds just yet. I'm gonna show you how to transition some of your Summer Essentials into Fall Classics, while avoiding the seasonal mall rush!

1. The Slip Dress

For high-octane glamour with a nonchalant edge, the slip dress is the perfect pick. It's great by itself on a summer day with sandals, but when the weather starts to get a little chilly, adding a cardigan, trench coat, parka or military jacket is the perfect way to transition this traditional summer look into a fall beauty.

2. The Maxi Skirt

For a forever chic look, go all out for the leg lengthening virtues of the maxi skirt. Whether you opt for a sleek column fit or a wafting voluminous shape; rework your maxi with bold prints, sheer mesh finishes and dipped and asymmetric hemlines.

3. Infinity Scarves

Scarves are timeless accessories used throughout the year’s seasons and fall is no exception! Layer up and give your outfit that extra pop with a cute scarf.

4. Kimono Cardigans

It almost never gets cold in the Bahamas. And if it does, it only drops to the 60's. Christmas day is usually a sweltering 80 degrees. Which means some afternoons can still get pretty warm! But if you want the illusion of a fall cardigan while still staying cool, cover up with a light kimono cardigan draped over!

5. Skater Skirts:

Always have a few pretty skater skirts lying around! The thing I love most about skater skirts is how versatile they are. You could dress 'em up with heels and a blazer, or take a more casual (or practical depending on how cold it gets) approach with tights, boots, and a knit cardigan or parka. And the best part about skater skirts? They're stylish all year round!
