When it comes to updating your fall wardrobe, there’s no better time than right now. So many amazing items are coming out and we definitely want to get a head start on shopping. However, while our head is thinking fall clothing, the weather outside still feels a lot like summer. But don’t worry, the pieces you shop now don’t have to be stored away until the temperatures start to drop. We’re sharing the must-have items that you can shop and wear now and throughout the fall—it’s all about how you style them.
A Boyfriend Cardigan: Use this as your summer jacket and wear it with denim shorts and your favorite tee now. Then wear it with skinny jeans and boots when the weather gets cooler.
A Fall Floral Dress: Start integrating a fall floral dress in darker, moodier colors. Pair it with your favorite summer sandals now and then add a cozy cardigan or jacket and some cute ankle boots come fall.
Ankle Boots: Shoes have to be one of our favorite pieces to shop for fall (stay tuned for our fall shoe guide coming next week)! Wear them with your favorite summer dress now or a pair of cut-offs and a relaxed tee for a “model off-duty” look.
A Cream Bohemian Blouse: A cream (or white) bohemian-style blouse looks easy and carefree for summer. We love it just as much for fall though when paired with dark skinny jeans and knee-high boots or a cute suede skirt and booties.
A Suede Skirt: We are super excited to wear a cute suede skirt this fall! Buy one now and wear it with a cute tank or tee and a simple pair of sandals.
A Felt/Wool Hat: We used to associate this hat predominantly with cooler weather, but with the influx of summer festivals, we’ve seen so many different ways to style it in the warmer months. Pair it with a flowy bohemian sundress now and then dark skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots for fall.
A Blazer: If you don’t own a classic blazer (or one that you love), snag one now. Wear it with shorts and a tee for a chic and stylish summer look. In the fall, you can wear it with pretty much everything. We love it with a crisp button-down, silk neck scarf and skinny pants.
A Dark Denim Jacket: Similar to a blazer, we consider a well-fitting denim jacket a closet staple. Make sure to get a dark wash jacket now to wear with your sundresses or a printed pair of cotton shorts. In the fall, feel free to layer it up! We love wearing ours with a fitted sweater or comfy plaid flannel shirt.
A Sleeveless Vest or Jacket: While this may not seem like the most practical fall piece in terms of providing a ton of warmth, we absolutely love this piece to layer with and give instant style to any outfit! It’s a great way to add a little bit more “fall” to your summer outfit without the added warmth.
A Utility Jacket: This style might not be for those with more tailored and feminine taste, but we personally love this look. Similar to a blazer and denim jacket, pair it with a summer sundress or a pair of cut-offs for a cool casual look now. In the fall, you can layer this jacket almost any way you want. It’s perfect for weekend adventures and weather that may not be, how should we say, the most ideal.
