How To Organize Your Closet For Fall
A Summer Closet Clean Out

We’ve reached the end of July, which means we’re entering the last few weeks of summer. Very soon fall will be upon us and this period of late summer transitioning into the fall can be hard to navigate fashion wise. Much like the way we cling to the summer months, we all want to hold on to that summer wardrobe for as long as humanly possible. We all experience an overwhelming sense of dread whenever we see the mannequin displays at our favourite store windows ushering in the fall clothing line. The sandals, sunglasses and shorts are decidedly much more fun! The good news is that there’s still a little over a month left to enjoy summer staples before you’re forced to lay them to rest in the back of your closest. And while you’re at it, it’s also a good idea to prepare for the next season by organizing your closet for fall. Transitioning outfits from one season to the next can indeed be a tough task. But here are some tips for all genders and ages that will help you conquer the summer-fall fashion. Soon enough you’ll be transitioning from tank tops to long sleeves with style, grace and a lot of ease.

 

Keep the footwear

If you’ve ever spent some time decluttering your closet, the first rule is to make sure your items are versatile. One of the best things about shoes is that many of them can be worn during transitional seasons. Before you embark on the fall closet clean out, have a look at your shoe closet for an easier start. Many people spend most of their time outside during the summer and fall months. If you are the type to go on walks or hikes during this season, it is important to have a comfortable pair of running shoes. The pair of sneakers you get during the summer can be worn through the majority of fall, making them an excellent purchase for that transition period. For a style tip, get a pair with a neutral tone, like white, and you will be able to rock them during both seasons.

 

 

Don’t Ditch the Shades

This one's a no brainer, you can still wear your favourite pair of sunglasses. Throughout August and most of September, temperatures are still warm enough to require some stylish shades. For your fall closet clean out, there’s no need to chuck your shades into the summer pile just yet, especially since the sunset is still so late into the evening. Don’t be afraid to bring your shades with you while you are at your friend’s barbeque, or while having a mojitos at the restaurant patio around the corner.

 

Add A Layer 

Transitioning from summer to fall can give your outfit a unique look. You can still wear your favourite summer dress or pair of shorts, but if you feel the temperatures are cool, then throw on a stylish jean jacket or a crewneck sweater. The advantage of wearing the extra layer is the ability to take it off and tie it around your waist, or throw it over your shoulder if you get too hot.

 

Keep Long Sleeves and Add Leggings

Long sleeves tops were made for late summer and early fall. They keep you at the perfect temperature. For women, adding a pair of tights or wearing leggings with your outfit can be a fun way to play with pattern, colour, and texture for the fall. Adding a pair of tights or leggings to your favourite summer skirts and dresses makes organizing your closet for fall easier.

 

 

Continue with Colour 

Continue wearing your favourite colours while entering fall. There’s no need to put away your vibrant outfits until the winter. A great tip is matching the colours that nature presents. In the summer, there are so many colours to choose from. When the leaves start to change add some red, mustard and oranges to your wardrobe.
