Transitioning Your Wardrobe For Fall

Now is the time when I start the process of transitioning my wardrobe to fall. It’s my absolute favorite season and each year I do what I call a “wardrobe audit” to determine what pieces—if any—I want to purchase or replace for the upcoming season. As you begin to break out your clothes for crisp weather, pumpkin patches, and trips to Starbucks for PSLs, take some of these tips into consideration for transitioning your fall wardrobe.

What clothing in my closet need to be updated or replaced?

Of all of the things I mention in this post, I think this is the most important! Take a look at at the things that you wear year-after-year and check how they’re holding up. Does your favorite black sweater have a hole in it? Are your boots falling apart? Invest the time to find good replacements for things the need an upgrade. 

This year, I was in need of new basic cardigans. It’s hilarious when I write it, but most of the cardigans that I have been wearing are from high school! They recently started to lose buttons, hems were frayed, and some had holes in them. I found several affordable styles to replace the old falling apart cardigans, which I have already started to wear as you can see in today’s post.

What items are currently trending?

Are there new styles or colors that are popular that I want to incorporate into my outfits? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is usually a place where I find some of the pieces that I want to add to my closet. This year, I’m really into yellow and orange tones, so I’ll take that into consideration when thinking if I want to buy anything new for my closet.
