Fall Wardrobe Ideas: 6 Tips to Help You Transition

Roslyn Fashion & Jewelry: Your Life in Color Fall, Pantone Colors

Transition to Fall with Style and Ease

The temperatures are in the 90’s but believe it or not, it is not too early to start thinking about some new fall wardrobe ideas. When transitioning from season to  season, we want to proceed in a stress-free, organized way so we don’t get overwhelmed or caught unprepared for seasonal changes while remaining attuned to our lifestyle.

A look at the latest blogs, style magazines, runway fashions and advertisements reveals the latest trends. Not that you have to be a die-hard follower, but it’s often a good idea to be familiar with them so you recognize the styles or the most flattering merchandise when you do pop into the stores.

Transition from Summer with these Fall Wardrobe Ideas

To help you on your way, start thinking about:

1. What worked well last year?  Did you wear out your favorite denim? Perhaps this year you will purchase the tall boots you passed up last year. Are you sick of the sweater vest you wore every day last September? If it is time for some new transitional outer wear, there are great 70’s inspired suede jackets to choose from as well as long line blazers that are perfect for layering with knits and a skinny scarf.

2. Accessories are a great transitioning asset. Now is a good time to switch your bracelets around; weave in some fall colors with your gold and silver bangles. Or toss on a heavier pendant necklace. If you change up your bracelets and necklaces, you can accomplish a new look.

3. Has your body size changed? This can be a challenge for many of us and important to take into consideration as a good fit can do wonders for our figures as well as our confidence. Make sure you have comfortable go-to pieces that fit well.

4. Perhaps your business or job has gone in a new direction?  Maybe you haven’t been out and about meeting new people for a while. With more speaking engagements, meetings, and conferences, your business attire could probably use some freshening up. Select a few coordinating outfits that you can mix and match for smart work attire.

5. Set time aside for cleaning out your closet. Flip it- if you’re lucky enough to have a big closet, push your off-season outfits towards the back; if your closet is small, move things to storage. Declutter and donate things you no longer wear. As you reorganize and cull your wardrobe, you should make notes of what items you need to round out your existing wardrobe: new blazer, belt or mid-size heel.

6.  Are you aware of the hot colors this year for fall? We are all familiar with traditional fall colors and Pantone has got some exciting color picks. One of our favorites is Teal (Biscay Bay), that gorgeous blue/green that looks fabulous on almost everyone. Some other bright unexpected on-trend colors are Purple (Amethyst Orchid), Rose (Cashmere Rose), Wine (Marsala) and Amber(Oak Buff). We love designing with these rich colors and pairing them with a darker traditional fall palette creates an enlivened yet sophisticated look.

In between seasons doesn’t have to be as awkward as it sounds. It’s an opportunity to combine colors and trends creatively. Consider the 6 tips above and have fun layering your favorite pieces and planning your best fall looks. 

Here is an ever updating selection of the collection we currently have available for Fall:

I loved going to work each day for 30 years as a professional career counselor. When I retired, I explored my creativity and regard for crafts until I discovered beading. At age 68 I turned my new found passion- jewelry design, into a business. At age 72 I took on learning about social media marketing and developing my computer skills. I am sharing my journey from inception, to frustration, to elation -in the hope of inspiring others that 'it is not too late to start again'. Welcome to my re-invention!

  1. Before writing my comment, I went to look at my little jewelry mannequin and my jewelry box. I did notice that some of my jewelry is season appropriate. A necklace I wore yesterday, would not be appropriate for the fall with it’s bright sky blue stones. Love the swatches you’ve laid out. My Pantone book is so worn out LOL!!

    another wonderful post, thank you!

      Gisele Grenier, thanks for your comment. So happy to hear you hang your jewelry and its visible. Also appreciate your awareness about seasonal jewelry. So many people are unaware of multiple birthstones, seasonal colors and jewelry, best storage. You are doing it right.

  2. One of the least favourite things for me, is switching from capris to long pants. I honestly could live in capris and open toed shoes all year! My jewelry is very season friendly and I generally am able to match my jewelry with everything I wear. My mother “changes” her closets for each season, whereas, I usually have my clothes organized by colours. Surprised? 😉 I love Teal and Purple, so those are great colours for me for fall and I also love Rose, so looks like the fall colour palette and my personal favourites are perfectly aligned! Thanks for the great tips, as I have a challenging time giving away clothes and yet seem to wear a few favourites all the time! Glad to look for new fall and winter sweaters in the new colours though and today is a perfect day for fall clothes here in Toronto! Very cool and feels like fall already.

      Fall is my favorite season so I’m wishing for early signs. Perhaps I need to come to Toronto.I used to have an excess of seasonal clothes and arranged them by color. I notice I buy less each year and honor my promise to myself to give away an equal item each time I make a purchase. For me it got easier to part with unworn, but I liked the color or style, if it went to a specific person. I have a few friends who line up for my discards. My other rule is x number of hangars. Period.

  3. If you could only see the glee look on my face right now, Roslyn!

    I love looking at your collection every week and this is another great way to start the day.

    We’re still seeing the tail end of the Indian Monsoon season but the colors and tips will work wonderfully for the Hindu Festive Season that is starting and for once, I have clothes and stone jewelry in the right colors and shades. I’m already thinking of wearing my Amber pieces collected in Belarus, Poland and Denmark with some new outfits in Purple and Marsala colors (different outfits) and my beloved Amethysts too!

      Vatsala Shukla, would love to see your collection of jewelry. You come from a country of jewels and gems, bright colors and I suspect you have very good taste. Enjoy the festivities, your outfits and take some selfies.

  4. I always look forward to your blog posts, Roz. While transition time won’t hit Tucson till November, about this time of year I do start to get tired of my summer clothes (after all, I’ve been wearing them since April!). I love the way you tie your designs in with some many things (seasons, colors, gemstones, etc.). It makes them so memorable!

  5. You have such beautiful product photography. Just wanted to get that out up front. To your point about your changing body size, a couple of comments. (1) Don’t hold on to pieces — unless they are truly classic — that you’ve been holding onto for the time when you lose weight. Chances are excellent that it will be out of style by then, and if you’ve lost weight, don’t you deserve something fresh and new to celebrate? (2) Stop beating yourself up that off-the-rack clothing doesn’t fit right. It never does. Find a great piece (or three) that you can use in many situations and have it tailored to make it fit perfectly. Because how you feel in what you wear will have a huge impact on your self-confidence and will be projected to others. Another excellent piece, Roz. And BTW, I lust after Azul. 😉

      Jackie Harder, Thank you so much for compliments. Beth does the product photography, so I’ll make sure she sees this. Your added points regarding body size are appreciated. Agree with them and if comments fit into another topic, will be sure to include them. I know how many pieces you ‘lust’ after and have to say you have varied and excellent taste.

  6. Great post, Roz. I love fall, but am dragging my heels and holding onto summer this year. I’m hoping the transition to fall is a month away! Mums are out already, too, here in Maine. Thanks for posting the colors for us to take a look at – as always, great tips for all of us!

      Thanks, Deb Nelson for your comment. I love fall too and even more that period just before- Indian summer. I imagine it is cooler already in Maine now.

  7. Lots of great tips, Roslyn!

    I especially liked the reminder that you can often change up an outfit by using different jewelry to give it a whole new look.

    And, my favorite color is finally in style — Teal! Yay!

      Thanks, Cathy Jennings, for your comment. I too am happy Teal is everywhere. We continue to encourage our readers thru our Fashion Jewelry tips on tues and in our blogs, that jewelry really makes a difference. Most of us get into a habit of wearing a particular necklace with an outfit. Try out switching it up and let us know how you feel about your look.

  8. Well, I must say… I don’t have a wardrobe that varies from season to season… I just don’t have that many clothes I guess. Sure, I wear more open toed shoes and tanks during the summer, but inside places in Texas are always cold, so I always have sweaters too. Then have a few long sleeve shirts, but cuz I am tall (= long arms), they never have long sleeve shirts that fit right.. so get my dilemma? And because I type all day, no bracelets and cute stuff… I work from home… nobody sees them and they bother me. 😉 Love your collections though!

      Ah, Kristen Wilson, my friend. I can’t tell if our fashion topics are pleasing or annoying you. The inside temps here in Ny also require a layer. My guess is you have all the clothes you need and when you go out networking or to visit a client, you dress accordingly. What matters is that you are comfortable with your selections and that you love our jewelry.

  9. We’re a bit cooler here in Canada than 90 degrees, Roz. We’re maybe holding onto 75 or 80 degrees at the moment –but not for long.

    Yet, another great blog. You nail it each week and I continue to be someone who learns much from you each time.

    Vary my seasonal jewellery? Hadn’t thought about that so much as the wardrobe.

    Will now, though!

      Sharon, you know the phrase “try it- you might like it”. That is my suggestion to you to vary your jewelry with your outfits. If you pay attention to the colors and different necklines you are wearing as the seasons change, you will be able to follow suit with your jewelry.

  10. Teal and rose, I absolutely love these color combinations! It’s something that I wear regardless the season and I have many pieces in my wardrobe in those colors. You are right that depending on season I may “feel” that I want to wear certain pieces. For example something “heavier” in winter and something really light in the summer. Thanks for the great ideas, Roslyn!

  11. Hi Roz,

    I defer to Gisele on what to wear when the seasons change.

    She’s my fashionista, she keeps telling I have no taste in clothes and it’s time to get out of the 70’s.

      Thanks, Joe Butka for knowing when it’s best to defer to the woman in your life. Welcome to our blog and perhaps, over time you will get enough up-to-date info to feel comfortable with your choices.

  12. Great tips Roslyn! My wife is stressed about changing our summer clothes to fall and winter clothes. I need to show her your blog. I also like you said “It’s an opportunity to combine colors and trends creatively”! We should enjoy the moment as much as possible 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Kaz for your comment. By all means share our blog with your wife. Perhaps it is the physical act of changing seasonal clothes. It doesn’t have to be stressful. Perhaps chat about it first and reassure her there is no right way to look or do the task, just ideas.

  13. Roz, you always have the most beautiful jewelry! I am keeping to my minimal wardrobe, but I am relieved to see that I already have colors that are “new” this season, lol. Guess being old enough to see trends return has certain advantages, lol, as well as being a person who prefers “classic” cuts.

      You are fortunate Liz Benoit Cozby if your size stays the same and you can make good use of what you own. I hope someday you add 1 piece of new jewelry from us to enhance your classic wardrobe. Thanks for your comment.
