Transitioning from Summer to Fall – Color Combinations & Outfit Ideas

September 4, 2015


 I am SO excited to share today’s post with you!! One of the questions I have been getting a lot via email lately is what to wear during “seasonal transitions”. It’s tough to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall; and coming up with outfits for September can be difficult. So, for today’s post I am showing you my top 4 color combinations to transition your outfits from summer to fall!

Burgundy & Blush is a great color combination to transition out of summer. Pair any blush item with burgundy and you’ve got a great outfit! For added fall touches, consider adding (like I’ve done here) leopard print and rose gold or bronze! (ps. I posted this pic to instagram last week- follow along if you aren’t already!)

Some of my favourite burgundy & blush items available at the moment are:

Olive is always a big colour for fall, but to make it a bit more fitted to this late summer weather try pairing it with pink! Here I’ve pictured one of my favourite outfits with olive & pale pink, but, olive also pairs well with rich dark pink- so give that a try as well.

I have been wearing yellow a lot this summer (as you probably noticed in my posts here and here). It is one of my favorite colors during the summer, but, I also really like it transitioning into the fall paired with shades of grey or even navy. The above picture is from an older post (you can see the full post here) but it is an outfit I repeat season to season. The grey tones are a perfect compliment to sunny yellow.

One of the easiest ways to keep wearing all your summer whites into September is to pair them with jewel tones. White denim with emerald, wine or navy looks stunning! I think a combination of multiple jewel tones (like in this outfit) really makes an outfit with white look like it was made for fall.
