Fashion Forward and A Bit Funky...Summer to Fall Ideas



This is the time of year when you’re still holding onto the summertime, but you know Fall is right around the corner, and you’re not quite ready for a wardrobe overhaul.  Plus, all of those Fall/Winter clothes can get pretty expensive.  Here are a few ideas to take your Summer fashion, and blend it into your Fall wearing. Plus, spruce up items you already have with some choice, and yes, fashion forward and pleasantly unexpected selections…

You know that easy cotton or linen Summer Dress you’ve been wearing, like this tank style?...


Just add some warmth on your gams with some really funky leggings...


There are so many fun leggings these days on the market, and not only are they comfy, but affordable.  

Let’s keep this outfit going…slip on a neutral suede bootie...


The peep toe bootie style here and camel color give you that combined, Summer/Fall look, and then throw on something like this Slick Grey Leather Coat or any of your neutral looking jackets in your closet...


What’s great about all of these pieces, is that they all go together, but can easily be worn separately, and go with so many other items in your wardrobe.


The most inexpensive thing you can do for a new look is to accessorize.  Have you ever taken a look at your husband’s ties?  They can be gorgeous right?  So use them…put one on with your shirt or dress, or you can even wear them as belts.  There are some really great prints out there too that will still give you a feminine edge...


Let’s take a basic t-shirt now, and add a new twist like this Elastic Harness accent.
You could add this harness to any of your clothes for something completely fashion forward and unique. And instead of a typical necklace, try something like a Dapper Bow Tie one…


Fall always calls for scarf wearing, because you can pair it with a light jacket or just on its own for those still warm enough evenings.  A scarf can really make your outfit too, similar to what a necklace does for it.  And if this Rusty Foks handmade fox shaped scarf is not a statement, I don’t know what is!  I like that they have little Mini Foks too…


Sometimes, you might want to splurge a little on something new for the changing season and treat yourself a tad.  So if you’re going to spend some money, go for something different and striking.  I’m sticking with the accessories here on this splurge, so that they can be used more with different outfits, and treasured for years.  You can always tuck away a good piece of jewelry and bring it out again and again.

This Glam Rock Black Leather Cuff can be dressed up or down, but will certainly draw some attention…


Or maybe you should go for the Sinai Glitz cuff, and pair it with your new Rusty Foks scarf!...


Now, can you get anymore fashion forward and funky than that!?

What great ideas! I have to admit, I haven't even thought about changing my summer wardrobe to fall yet. This is very timely and I'm so happy you shared it on my hop. Keeping your sense of style is definitely a "Crowning Moment", especially when you have a large family and still want to pull of being young and beautiful. ☺
