As fall quickly approaches, the task of changing out wardrobes becomes daunting. You’d be surprised at how much of your summer wardrobe can easily be transitioned into fall. I’ve chose 5 pieces, all under $50, that can easily be worn in both seasons.
Lets start with the Aztec print tank I love from TopShop and can easily be worn during this transition season. For the end of summer hotter days wear this top with some classic white shorts to add that last pinch of summer flair. Try these gladiator style wedge sandals and a set of gold bangles for a hot night out. If you’re going to transition this outfit into fall I suggest wearing a white comfy sweater that hits your hips over this top, let the top peak out from underneath to add a little punch to a basic fall outfit. Throw on your favorite pair of jeans and these cool loafers, which I love, from The Gap.
Aztec Tank - $30.00
Next take those colored jeans you’ve been rocking all summer long and bring them into fall with you. You looked hot in them, so why not?! These coral jeans from TopShop are in the perfect color for transitioning to fall. This summer wear your colored jeans with a peplum top and dress it up with a super trendy bauble necklace from BaubleBar.com in turquoise. Pair with coordinating wedges in neutral to complete the look. For Fall wear these coral jeans with a cowboy boots and a simple white blouse for a look that you can’t go wrong in.

Neon t shirt dress was a big trend this summer, and it might seem like a tricky color to bring into fall but think again! For summer let the dress do the work and wear it with these silver sandals from ASOS and this cool silver ring from Mango’s collection at JCPenny’s. During the fall wear this neon dress with a denim jacket J.Crew and cowboy boots by Steve Madden. These are both pieces that can easily be worn all fall long and are worth the investment.
