OH… AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE SHOES
Before we even dive into one seriously major style tip for creating transitional outfits we HAVE to talk about the shoes! I’ve mentioned this style tip in a few posts, but the shoes determine how seasonal your look is. For example, if you’re wearing sandals then you are rocking a more summer outfit. If you are wearing boots then your look is a cooler weather outfit!
The “neutral” shoe you can rock year round are flats and heels! I highly recommend these one of these styles of shoes depending on your personal style. The reason is because when creating a transitional look you don’t want to create a look that gives off too many fall OR summer vibes. Incorporating flats or heels are the perfect way for your look to have an element that is both summer and fall!
THE 20/80 RULE FOR ACCESSORIZING A TRANSITIONAL LOOK
Since I am a complete nerd I love breaking down outfit elements into pieces (literally!) which makes is so much easier to style a look.
Think of the 20/80 rule like cooking. You need a certain amount of each ingredient to create a dish that is totally delicious. If you add to much, or too little, of an ingredient your dish won’t turn out as good or won’t taste as yummy as it would if you followed the recipe.
The 20/80 rule for accessorizing a transitional outfit goes like this!
20% of your outfit should be summer accessories (this 20% is simply one summer accessory or two subtle accessories!)
80% of your outfit should be fall accessories (this 80% is usually 2-3 fall accessories added to your outfit!)
When you add those two numbers together you get 100% of a perfectly accessorized transitional outfit!
SUMMER ACCESSORIES TO USE
When thinking of accessories I typically think of the big three: handbags, hats, and jewelry.
When looking for summer accessories I recommend using a summer hat such as a boater hat as I did in today’s post. The reason for this is because this hat gives off summer vibes while easily complimenting fall colors with it’s camel brown hue. I also love how boater hats have a flat rim and are so chic!
Other summer accessories you can use for your transitional look are bright baubles in pastel colors or bold hues!
