It's hot out but you are gearing up for Back to School, a new schedule, squeezing in the last pool days, the stores have nothing left in your size for summer clothes but you are craving something fresh and new for your closet..
Here's the TRUTH, this time of year is the time for retailers to off load all the spring/summer product so they can gear up for fall so technically you should be doing the same. If you haven't already done so, head over to my blog post about "How to purge your closet in 5 Simple Steps". Get in your closet and shift through what you are still loving and what is collecting dust.
Once you have an overview of what you actually have, get rid of what is no longer serving you, then we move forward to put in what's missing.
So I gathered a a few essentials that you can/should BUY NOW to ensure that:
1. You are BUYING SMARTER.
2. Building a good baseline for your Fall/Winter wardrobe.
So here's what I have put together for you...
With fall around the corner it is so good to know what colors will be trending and PANTONE Fall 2019 color palette is showing NAVY a core neutral for all of the fashion industry. Nothing looks better with NAVY than a pair of WHITE JEANS!!
We have 2 styles to shop in our store NOW. One is a crop slightly distressed flare denim by Lola Jeans. Lola a women's cut denim line that has soft stretchy fabrics and is a great fit for curvy frames.
Secondly, we have our Judy Blue Denim line with a non-distressed full length white denim. Either style is perfectly chic for summer to fall transitional looks!
Add our Navy Ethnic Print Tassel kimono over a simple tank and BOOM, you got yourself a perfect look to WEAR NOW and into fall!
2. Airy Tops in Fall Colors
Look for flowy tanks and tops that can be layered later on in the season. We just launched this amazing Fall Basic Babe Twist front tank in an Ochre Color that will transition into fall with ease.
Additionally, our Miley Collared top is perfect with a touch of rust and charcoal, it feels updated for fall but not too warm and perfect for office or weekend.
3. Light Layers & Creamy shades of Ivory and Taupe
Lighter colors are going NOWHERE for Winter so be on the hunt for taupey-mauves , ivory shades and winter whites that can be worn now and into fall.
Our Modern Mom Crochet top is on pre-order now so its a gem of a piece you will want to secure so you have it when the season starts to turn. Wear it NOW with cropped denim and sandals. Wear it LATER with tall brown boots and skinny jeans and big statement earrings like the ones from our July Lush Outfit Bundle.
The striped cardigan is another great example of something to grab NOW because you will LOVE it for indoor layering in cool offices and of course for summer evenings. The open weave knit on it is lightweight and perfect to transition into fall with.
4. Animal Print anything!!
You don't have to love leopard print or snake print but having something that can pop your outfits with an animal print is super chic any time of the year!
So think about adding a statement piece to your closet like our wrap midi skirt in leopard or our tapered snakeskin pants. Easy to pop a simple tank or tee with and go! Or find an accessory in an animal print you love to add to a simple black dress like our Relaxed Fit Rib Knit Black Dress.
5. Olive is the NEW Neutral for Fall
I can't talk up Olive enough in my style community because it really does help to ground a wardrobe with some versatility other than black and white.
The one thing we love NOW are these Olive Shorts that have a relaxed fit and feel but can be dressed up with a blazer, denim jacket or printed blouse and heels. Wear it casually for the remainder of summer and add layers as we transition into fall.
Like I said in the beginning NOW is the time to keep you eye out for EARLY FALL release items that may not be available as we get into the core of Fall and winter, like this Olive trench coat. I mean OH MY GOSH!! So cute right? Pieces like that are not going to stay in the stores long and you can't wear them right away but you will be happy you have them when the weather decides to turn.
