Get excited about fall with a few must-have wardrobe ideas. Though summer is over, you don’t need to feel sad. Autumn marks the beginning of cozy sweaters, comfy jeans and artsy accessories. Check out a few pieces that can help seamlessly transition your wardrobe from summer to fall without breaking your budget.
1. Dark Jeans
When the first cool breezes of autumn roll through town, it’s time to say goodbye to light jeans and hello to dark colored jeans. Just because your jeans are dark doesn’t mean they need to be thick, though. Slip on a pair of thin jeggings in a shade of dark cobalt or light gray for a look that will take you from summer to fall in less time than you can say, “pumpkin spice latte.”

A smart blazer can dress up a casual outfit or add a finishing touch to a business outfit. Blazers bring memories of back-to-school uniforms. Layer a smart blazer over a simple tank top or t-shirt with jeans for a casual look, or complete a business casual look with a sassy skirt and a blazer. Try to find a blazer that fits your personality and have it tailored to fit your shape.

Comfort is just as important as fashion in the fall. A pair of fashion sneakers can pull together a casual outfit. Luckily, there are plenty of casual sneakers that focus on comfort as well as trend. Try to find a simple shade that you can mix and match with most outfits. Most fashion sneakers can be worn with anything—from a sassy skirt to a pair of casual jeans.
