Keep warm on cool summer nights
Transition to early fall with your favourite summer staples
We are entering the last month of the summer! Although we will be sad to see patio and pedicure season leave us for another long winter (sorry—we said it!), we are looking forward to the cute fall layers we love to snuggle up in.
As for August—we get the best of both worlds when it comes to fashion options.
The end of summer is a fun time for shoppers because there are still quite a few of last season’s looks in stores that pair beautifully with upcoming fall trends. That and the cooler nights inspired this post! We’ve combined a few of our summer staples with fall layers we’re sure you will love too. Jackets that make a statement, cozy scarves, and sweater-dress combos you will want to try yourself!
Cool nights call for warm layers
If you've been part of our community for a while, you know that we like to build on items you already have. How can we make an old outfit work for a new season?
Each of the following outfits begins with a base that you’ve probably already rocked all through the spring and summer. From there, we add new pieces to transition each look to the temperatures that are just around the corner. We hope this serves as inspiration for you to add a few new items to your closet!
Your classic white denim
Cooling summer nights call for fun jackets layered with cozy sweaters. We lived in white denim all spring and summer—our model here is wearing a cropped pair by Sandwich Clothing.
Refresh your go-to white denim for the dropping temperature with a cozy sweater like this gray camo print one by Oui. We complete the layered look with a leather perforated jacket by Bano eeMee. The longer style leather jacket will carry you through to the colder months as well. Multi-season use is a feature we can agree with!
Your favourite sun dress
A classic transition-season look starts with a denim jacket, don't you think? This Mavi denim goes with pretty much anything! We've paired it with a fun floral dress from Gilmour. The same jacket will look great layered with a scarf and a sweater when fall arrives.
We also wanted to take a moment to appreciate how the little details really pull an outfit together. A simple necklace completes this look! We chose a piece by French Kande, but we have plenty of jewellery to choose from in both our Calgary and Okotoks stores.
The perfect little black dress
You might know by now that we are big fans of a good LBD around here! We think this Little Black Dress by Mavi looks super cute when layered over a sweater. We chose a soft LNA striped sweater with a bell sleeve, but any sweater you love would create a similar outfit. Just stop by to see what we have in store!
Fun summer prints
Johnny Was—you’ve probably heard us say that name a time or two! You can keep wearing these fun prints as we prepare for fall, just throw on one of our gorgeous Chan Luu scarves as a shawl to keep you warm at night. We think this outfit feels playful and chic, and the darker red tones in this one will look beautiful against fall's bright colours.
The same idea applies to any of your summer prints. Wear them into the fall too! Switch shorts and skirts for pants, keep the colour, and add a touch of Chan Luu for good measure.
Which in-between season look is your favourite?
If we don’t have these exact styles in store when you visit us, ask our ladies to help you recreate a transition outfit by adding to pieces you already own. Summer denim, skirts, and dresses are perfect bases to layer in fall.
