Part of me isn’t ready to give up on summer just yet, but the other part of me is totally excited for fall. That is exactly why I’m incorporating florals into my transitional pieces for fall this year. Target has a lot of fabulous, layer-able pieces that great for fluctuating weather and fluctuating tastes….and dorky little accents (like my silly vintage styleglasses on a necklace?)
Fashion: Incorporating florals (scarves, dresses, or jewelry) can capture the gorgeous richness of fall colors in rosey reds, sunset oranges and warm yellows, but still have the sweetness of spring/summer. Florals can be subdued with a black blazer, or intensified by pairing with another print (animal+floral=ballsy but gorgeous!)
Functionality: Layer, layer, layer! What’s great about wearing a floral dress or shirt is that you can add fall pieces (jackets, scarves, even polar fleece leggings or floral lace tights) to add depth and (literally) warmth to your look. Flowy- and floral pieces from summer can still be used into fall if you add layers beneath or some cute boots for rainy weather!
Frugality: Floral prints are versatile. The fact that you florals are key transitional pieces will save you money! Choosing florals that are bold in color but aren’t too pastel will allow you to wear florals anytime, not just spring. Plus, floral accents are not only classic, but scarves, rings and earrings are pretty affordable and can dress up a little black dress or add a frugal but feminine touch to your work attire.
Everything I wore for this was purchase in-store at Target. The ring is from Ice.com (yes, it was the priciest thing in this outfit, but I got it on sale!) I saw it on Tiffany from Iamstyle-ish.com and totally fell in love with it!
Everything in this look is feminine & playful, but mostly- FRUGAL! The pieces featured here are versatile to be dressed up or down for occassion or layered for warmth in cooler temperatures. If you’re looking for key pieces for fall, try getting some new leggings to wear under your summer dresses & dress it up with cute black pumps for the evening, or for a fun day out with brown knee high boots!
