With this new season comes, of course, new weather. The mornings have been outright frigid lately, and even once the sun rises, it barely takes the edge off the chill. This particular change means that getting dressed is no longer as easy as throwing on jeans and a T-shirt and calling it a day- but by no means does the colder weather need to mean pulling out a whole new wardrobe! Sure, scarves and coats and gloves are unnecessary in the summer, but there are certainly some key summer pieces that can make the transition to the colder weather. My favorite? White pants!
Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day must not have been very creative, because over the last couple of weeks I have come up with two outfits that I absolutely love that are based around my pair of white pants. They both take into account the colder weather and the inclination to wear boots and a sweater, just with a brighter twist by substituting jeans for white pants.
Outfit #1: Mustard yellow sweater (Target); white pants (TJ Maxx); brown boots (Famous Footwear)
Either of these outfits easily would work with jeans instead of white bottoms, but they’ll really pop with just that one small change. While I love the colder months, I do like thinking of tricks like this- it makes it less of an ordeal to make changes for every new season. Even though I certainly have jeans out year-round, these outfits help me avoid having to pack so many clothes away at the end of the summer!
