Even though us, adults, don’t have those beloved 3-month long summers, it always sad to realize that summer is nearing the end. Well, that only applies to you if you live in the Norther Hemisphere.
Towards the ned of August, everything gets more serious: schedules, people, school, your way of thinking and, of course…Fashion! It doesn’t matter if you’re still in school, college or if you work, you’ll start noticing that trends start to become more formal.
So, in order for us to feel more important, we have made a pictures of look that you need in order to make that transition from summer casual to serious fall. It’s not that we want summer to end before it actually does!
Currently, Neimans is having a buy more/save more sale. Nordstrom’s anniversary sale is over, but there are still mark downs galore on fabulous pieces that will take you through the transition time some of us get to enjoy between the total end of summer heat and the crisp fall days that await.
Yea! Long sleeve blouses! Cardigans! Blazers! Layers and layers!
Since layering season will soon be upon us (something we're genuinely excited about), when taking advantage of those end-of-summer steals, look for: camis that can be easily worn over a turtleneck — our favorite fall and winter styling trick — dresses that work over tights, and strapless pieces that sit nicely over an oxford shirt or long-sleeve tee. In other words, gravitate towards items that lend themselves to transitional styling. This way, you can enjoy those last-of-the-season shopping sprees without fear of having to pack your new buys away after just one wear. Endless summer, here we come.
Such a large part of the “beauty of summer” is in its actual beauty — all the late night pink sunsets, the skinny dips, the ocean dives, the romance, concerts, boardwalks, rooftops, barbecues, ice-filled cups, the clothes that tell a carefree story and the attitudes that turn those stories into realities.
The weather lends a hand to this, of course. Summer has to actually feel like summer. It’s warm, sticky air that makes the removal of garments and inhibitions an encouraged activity no matter the time or place. It’s the hot heat that makes ice cream an acceptable dinner for full-grown adults. And it’s the distinctly-fall chill that sends a different kind of shiver down our arm hairs. Somehow our bodies know to yearn for thick-knit sweaters rather than terry cloth towels. We embrace scarves, declare that we’ve really missed jeans and long sleeves and begin to shop for close-toed shoes. All of this is natural. It’s cyclical. Summer lovers would be miserable 10 months out of the year if we didn’t somehow learn to embrace other seasons.
