In Transition: Summer to Fall Styles

 

I’m sure we are all in agreement – nothing can compete with long, sunny summer days. Inevitably each year, September comes and our thoughts turn to fall. But what if we could hold onto the carefree days of summer a little longer? Here are a few ideas to breathe new life into those summertime staples you aren’t ready to pack away – maybe there can be such a thing as endless summer…

Switching up what we would typically consider bottom and top colors can create a whole new look. How often do we reach for our black pants or dark jeans, usually pairing with a more colorful or lighter top? Flip the proportion and wear white or natural jeans or light colored pants with a darker color on top for a crisp update. Try our Expedition Capri in Misty Blue or the KUT Catherine Boyfriend Jean in White with a drape top in South Beach Blue!

Layering a favorite tank or sleeveless dress under a denim shirt adds “legs” to a go-to summer favorite. The denim shirt is in for fall, and is on fashion editor’s must-have lists for fall 2014! We’ve just released our new, denim button-down, the Somerset Shirt.

Lightweight sweaters with an airy open knit, worn over a sleeveless top or dress feel cozy, but aren’t too heavy for this transitional time period. Our oversized Cozy Retreat Top is incredibly versatile with dolman sleeves, side slits and a split hem.

A double-faced fabric creates both texture and warmth – like our striped Fireside Pullover – which looks equally well with white or dark denim jeans. Look for more double faced fabrics from Fresh Produce coming this fall!

Combining rich colors – such as our currant or twilight – with white or light grey for an unexpected contrast that, with a quick-change of accessories can carry an outfit from a summer evening all the way through to October! Our new Dalia Dress in currant paired with a lighter scarf is the perfect example of carrying summer through fall with colors and accessories.

How do you plan to carry your summer wardrobe through autumn?

    I love some of the new styles that have come out – especially the dresses! Please explain something to me though – Plus sizes are priced higher because they require more fabric; however, 1X is for women who measure smaller than a woman who wears an 18 or XXL according to the size chart. So why does that size cost more?
