Like it or not Fall is right around the corner and one must be fashionably prepared for it, right Dolls? However, if you live in a climate that doesn’t truly have four seasons like I do then you can appreciate the fairly new fashion season dubbed “Pre-Fall”. From a retail perspective, Pre-Fall is the time of year (typically between July and August) when clothes hit the racks before Fall actually arrives. The items are typically those that are designed to help you transition fashionably in those in between seasons with varying temperatures. Think pieces that work well layered as well as separately. For me personally, I am so happy that there are clothes designed specifically for the in-between weather stages because that works perfectly for where I reside. It allows me to be a part of the Fall Fashion scene comfortably.
I spent some time playing around on Polyvore and created some Pre-Fall Inspired looks to lend a helping hand to those in search of some transitional looks before the weather fully changes. Take a look, and remember you can totally put your own spin on these looks. In fact, you may even have most of the separates in your wardrobe already, and if you don't...this weekend is the perfect time for shopping because Labor Day sales will be in full effect!
So Dolls, Set #1 is for those very early stages of seasonal transitioning where you can begin to appropriately incorporate richer colors and heavier accessories yet still be able to get away with wearing sandals and bare legs.
In Set #2, I'd like to think that this is one of those looks that transitions well from day to night. Depending on the environment, you could possibly get away with this look in the office and then head out for a night of fun. Plus, "blush" is said to be one of Fall 2015's "it colors."
The Long Vest has become a new fashion staple, and I'm totally here for this update on a long standing fashion classic. We also in for another comeback is being made this season...boot cut and wide leg pants are EVERYWHERE! I figure why not combine them with a long vest, a fly hat and flirty pussy bow blouse to transition flawlessly from Summer to Fall. The darker more romantic color palette in Set #3 will marry well with the Pre-Fall season and well into Fall.
I couldn't let this year pass without mentioning Pantone's Color of The Year! Set #4 is dedicated to "Marsala". Again we see wide leg pants, right? I wasn't kidding when I said they were EVERYWHERE! Ok, so I decided to provide options for two different looks. The first one is slightly more casual and trendy, while the latter is a bit more classic and polished. No matter what your preference is, if you go with one of these looks you will be right on target for Pre-Fall Fabulousness!
Fall is by Far my FAVORITE time of year, for so many reason and fashion is definitely one of them. I for one am totally looking forward to having some fun with fashion during this transitioning period. I hope you Dolls join me. By the way Dolls, if you are in love with the sets I created, head on over to my polyvore page and get all the details on where to purchase these fabulous pieces.
