Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall

5 Top Tips for Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall

There is a slight chill in the air and, the autumn rains have already started. You know what this means, don't you? It's time to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.

Fall is a time when you can experience all seasons in a single day. It's not so cold to go with full winter clothes and, it can get at times, it is too chilly and rainy to go out in your summer outfits. So what pieces should we keep from our summer wardrobe and, which pieces should we add as the temperature begins to drop and the rains begin to fall? Here are 5 tips to help make the transition smoother and more fun.

Layer Your Outfit

Use layers to build warmth. You can keep your favorite dresses and t-shirts from your summer wardrobe and use layers to create warmth for fall.

For example: layer a cardigan or blazer over your favorite summer dress. Add a pair of tights and ankle boots and accessorize with a beautiful scarf and a classic handbag to get you a beautiful autumn outfit.

Incorporate Warmer Fabrics

This is a point that always flies under the radar. Most of us know little about fabrics so pay very little attention to it. Incorporating some ethically produced wool into your wardrobe will add a dash of warmth instantly. This ethically produced 100% Mongolian cashmere tee is a perfect example of a perfect autumn top.

If you want to know more about fabrics we have several blog articles that cover this topic. You can access them by clicking below: 

Fabrics From Natural Fibers

Semi-Synthetic and Synthetic Fibers

Opt-in For Deeper Hues 


It's time to say bye-bye to the light summer hues and embrace the deeper and rich autumn hues such as olive green, burgundy, midnight blue, and mustard yellow.
So opt for dark wash jeans, burgundy dresses, and olive cardigans this season.

Swap The Sandals For Closed-toe Shoes

It's time to swap those flip-flops and sandals for some closed-toe shoes. A perfect pair of mules, slides, or ankle boots will keep you warm and stylish during these rainy autumn months.

Sustainable Shoes

The Derby boots by Will's Vegan Strore are one of our favorite sustainable Autumn shoes. These angel boots are extremely comfortable and they are made with vegan Italian leather that is up to 65% biodegradable and double-lined with vegan suede.


No outfit is complete without the perfect accessories. Add in a great scarf to protect your neck from the cold winds and a classic handbag and your Autoum look is complete.

We love these banaba fabric scarfs from Nepal. When the bananas are harvested the tree dies and is disposed of. Banana fabric is made with the fibers of the banana plant. It's a highly sustainable fabric and provides a great solution for the damage caused by the massive amount of waste produced by the banana industry.

Always opt for well-made and classic styles that don't go out of style. You will get better wear and bang for your buck. If you are building your sustainable autumn capsule wardrobe we have a free ebook that can help you.
