Transitioning to Fall (a post from Kate Stark Style 08.30.11)

Well, the end of August is upon us, and (hopefully) that means that cooler weather will blow in with September. I have noticed a lot of my clients lately shopping for items that will carry them into Fall and Winter, so I decided to throw out some tips for great transitional items that one can buy now and still wear later. First off, I know that plenty of you have super cute sun dresses that you would hate to pack up until next April. So, invest in a great jacket and tights to help extend the life-span of these flirty frocks. I love the way a tailored blazer looks layered over a dress! Effortless and very classy. For a more updated look, invest in a statement leather jacket! This is a must have item in any wardrobe. The instant edge added to an outfit with a leather jacket casually thrown on top of it looks like you have just put the icing on the cake! I love a leather jacket over a printed maxi or sequin mini dress. It’s an instant outfit maker!

Another great transitional item that was EVERYWHERE for fall were shorts. Yes–shorts in every fabric: lace, leather, denim, corduroy… name it, they were showcased for Fall.  Pair them with an Equipment Button down top, tights, and a pair of platforms and call it a day! I also enjoyed seeing shorts as an update for suiting. It was a fun way to punch up the menswear trend and add a little fun to evening attire. Some of my favorites were from BCBG, Paper Crown and Joie.

Here’s hoping a breeze is coming!
