Hello KC! Jana here again from Jana Style Blog! I’m back with another look featuring my favorite fall color combo and some easy, casual fall pieces.
Transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall can be really easy if you do it right! I love to utilize pieces I already own and combine them with new pieces to create updated, fresh looks. Use your wardrobe staples like a leather jacket, blazers or vests for layering. A great lightweight jacket is a must for fall and military-inspired is always classic. This Maison Jules military jacket (seen below) is an ideal piece because it can easily be worn several different ways through the fall season into winter and again in the spring.

Right now it can be difficult to get a fall look pulled together when the temperature is still fluctuating, so I often transition my dresses first. I like to mix my dresses with my sneakers for a fun, casual twist. When it gets a little cooler I can easily add a scarf and a neutral pair of booties to this look to take it up a notch.
STYLIST TIPS: The best way to start transitioning your wardrobe is to do a closet audit. Look through what you already own and pull out your staple pieces. Sort through your summer wardrobe and determine what pieces you think you could still wear by pairing them with your already existing fall pieces. Taking the time to determine what works and what doesn’t will help you figure out what you might need to add to your wardrobe for the new season. Chances are you probably already have the foundation for a great fall wardrobe already hanging in your closet. By adding a few key pieces and wearing your summer staples in different ways you can extend the wear of your wardrobe and create some amazing fall looks!
