I really try to go through my closet & shoes 3-4 times a year and make separate piles for Goodwill vs Keep vs PoshMark (@randirichardson). It always feels SO good to do this, and to have an organized closet with clothes I KNOW I’m going to be wearing for the next several months. But instead of packing up every item from your summer wardrobe, what pieces can you keep out for the fall?
We all know that solid color tee’s and bralette’s can be worn year round, but what else? Today, I want to share several items to keep out this fall, and ways you can create a completely new look with old and new pieces!
One of my favorite looks to wear is a cute crop top from the summer, that I would normally have worn with some cut off shorts or a high-waisted skirt, and pair it with some palazzo pants or high-waisted, distressed jeans and some booties. Another favorite is to layer on a cardi or moto jacket on top of a colorful dress with some boots/booties, instead of sandals. Don’t be afraid to keep bold colors in your wardrobe after the summer months. You’d be surprised what mood it puts you in to be in a hot pink sweater and a pair of leopard booties when its 30 degrees out! Although the fall is decorated with colors everywhere, the winter is so dreary, I gotta have some kind of color in my life- so clothes it is!
Here is a list of what to keep vs pack up for this season…
KEEP OUT FOR FALL LAYERING:
1 | BASICS. Tanks, tees, and vests. These can all be used in layering throughout the cooler months. If they have a bright floral pattern, or neon tones- go ahead and pack those up.
2 | DENIM. I like to keep my denim shorts out to pair with chunky sweaters and long sleeves until the crazy Georgia weather truly cools down enough that we don’t have any warm days that are too hot for pants.
3 | BRALETTES. Like I said above, these can be worn year round, and look super cute with off the shoulder sweaters!
4 | STAPLE TOTES. Totes like THIS can go with any outfit year round.
1 | Polka Dots
2 | Metallics
3 | Neon Florals
4 | Colored Shorts
5 | Sandals & Wedges
6 | Hot Pink, etc makeup
7 | Beach/Straw bags
Like anything else in this world, there are exceptions and there are times when these are coordinated correctly, BUT for the most part- these “pack away” items and no-no’s.
my fall favorites…
