How To: Transition to Fall

Before we know it, the leaves will be changing, the days will get colder, boots, scarves and flannels will be seen everywhere and it will finally be sweater weather again!

Who’s excited?!

I can’t say I am ready to be totally done with the Oregon sun and heat…since we don’t get to see it all that often here, but I would be lying if i said the thought of fall colors, textures and smells didn’t make my heart skip a beat.

Summer style is full  of bright colors, fun patterns and lots of maxi dresses. One of the greatest things you can do for yourself and your wardrobe is finding a few key pieces that you can transition from summer to fall with a few easy steps! Not only will you get to keep wearing some of your favorites, but you won’t have to start completely over with the coming season! Its a win-win!


Veronica M Maxi Dresses:

One of Mapel’s staples are our wonderful Veronica M Maxi dresses. The patterns are beautiful  and the fabric is to die for. Super comfy, great for traveling or date night out!

A quick and easy way to transition this look from a summer evening to a crisp fall day is to just layer! Layer, layer, layer! One of our great Love Stitch Cardigans work perfect over the top of a Veronica M. A lightweight cardigan to help with crisp fall mornings or chilly days. No need to put away your maxi dresses just yet! A structured blazer would do the trick just as well, even dressing it up a bit more- great for a work event or a family get together.

Z Supply Tanks:

Hopefully you were able to get your hands on our best selling brand Z Supply this summer- and better yet- snatch one of our best selling styles, Camo! Easy everyday summer tanks can be transitioned into your easy everyday fall looks with little to no effort. Who doesn’t like that? Style your Z Supply tanks with a great pair of denim skinnies, and cardigan and you have a whole new look for fall.

Doe and Rae Chiffon Duster:

These long chiffon shirts are fabulous in the summer- lightweight fabrics, sleeveless and that olive green looks good with just about everything. A quick and simple way to transition a top like this over to fall is to add a Vegan Leather Zip Up jacket and my personal favorite distressed 7 for all Mankind skinnies.

Above the knee dresses:

Hazel & Jaloux have fun prints and color palettes that make them fall transitional with ease! The weather may be getting colder, but it doesn’t mean you can no longer wear your knee length dresses. Pairing with a fun caramel colored leather jacket, some tights in a rich deep shade (greens, reds and purples are so yummy in fall)  your favorite pair of booties or knee high boots and you are ready for brunch with the girls in October!

Don’t stow away your summer favorites just yet! 

With a few tips and tricks you can lengthen their life and continue to rock your favorite summer looks right into fall with the right layering and accessorizing!

Layering really is key- make sure to stock your wardrobe with great cardigans, bomber jackets, leather jackets, flannels (totally work for layering) and sweaters!
