Coal Beanie

In fact, it’s more than acceptable to go out and get a fresh one in this year’s colours.

Summer To Fall Fashion Tips

It’s that time of year when we bid farewell to bikinis and say hello to sweaters. For many, they can’t wait to get cozy in their fall fashions. For others, its a different story. Holding on to wearing your shorts and sandals is all fine and dandy until the temperature drops. So how can we make the seasonal shift comfortably, fashionably and still get some wear out of beloved warm weather pieces? Here are some summer to fall fashion tips!

Extend your sleeve length

Start switching up your tank tops for long sleeves to ward off the chill. Even wear one under a strappy dress for the perfect fall outfit.

Throw a jacket over it

Dresses and shorts can still be worn through cooler weather patterns, just throw a blazer or light jacket on to make the outfit autumn ready. Investing in a versatile jacket is also an easy way to keep your fall wardrobe simple yet updated.

Start wearing dark colours

Maroon, grey, brown, deep red and black. Mix these seasonal colours in with your warm weather wardrobe as the leaves start to change.

Hold on to your maxi dress

Maxi dresses are equally nice on the beach and while shopping. This comfortable favourite doesn’t have to be retired to the back of the closet until next season. Try adding a chunky-knit sweater, or even a knotted chambray shirt to carry them through until winter.

Throw on some tights

To keep wearing some of your favourite summer pieces, add opaque tights into the mix. These may hide your tan but they will keep your beloved summer dress in rotation. If you’re not into tights, try leggings.

Sweater + Dress = Awesomeness

You really can’t go wrong with a sweater over dress. In fact, layering isn’t just fashionable, its functional too! As the air gets crisper, you can regulate your temperature while still wearing some your more skin bearing clothing items. Try wearing thicker pieces over slimmer, for example, a longer shirt over tighter jeans. This rule never fails.

All about the boots

Boots are an autumn staple that can be worn right into the next season and beyond. Don’t be afraid to invest in a good pair of boots that can be paired with jeans, shorts and skirts.

You can freely wear your toque

Now that the temperature is beginning to decrease, wear your toque from morning until night without getting stared at.

Grab a scarf

We just love functional pieces and a scarf is just that. A light scarf can keep away a chill and make an outfit chic.

Keep the sunnies close by

Autumn is home to some of the sunniest and brightest days of the year so keep your sunnies close by!

Fall might be in the air but you can ward it off feeling like it is by still wearing all your bright and light summer clothes. If you are looking to upgrade a few items for autumn, stop by McCoo’s to see what we have in store!
