Many black women love summer fashion and wear it year-round. This means you'll take your best summer pieces and move them into other seasons. Is there a way to transition those same pieces into a fall wardrobe? Of course, there is.
1. Add layers
One of the easiest ways to transition your summer wardrobe into fall is by simply adding layers. A cute summer dress can be transformed into a fall outfit by pairing it with a cardigan or light jacket. You can also add tights or leggings underneath to keep warm.
2. Choose darker colors
As the leaves start to change in color, so should your wardrobe. Summer fashion is often bright and airy, but for Autumn, opt for darker, richer hues. Deep reds, burgundies, and plums are all great choices for fall.
Somewhere in your summer pieces, you've got some darker colors. Move them forward now the Autumn is approaching.
3. Incorporate texture
Summer fabrics like linen and cotton can still be worn in the fall, but try to incorporate some heavier fabrics like lightweight wool or heavier cotton. This will not only keep you warm but also give your outfit a more autumnal feel.
One of the best things about summer fashion is that it’s often very simple and easy to accessorize. You can take a basic tank top and dress it up with a statement necklace or a cute scarf. In the fall, continue to accessorize your outfits with items like scarves, hats, and belts.
5. Add some Booties
Booties are a great way to take any summer outfit and make it appropriate for autumn. They can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion, and they’ll keep your feet warm as the weather gets cooler.
Just like your wardrobe, your skin care routine should also change with the seasons. Here are some tips on how to transition your summer skin care routine into autumn:
1. Exfoliate regularly
As the weather gets cooler and the air gets drier, your skin will start to produce less oil. This can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. To prevent this, make sure to exfoliate your skin regularly. This will help to remove any dead skin cells that could clog your pores.
2. Use a heavier moisturizer
During the summer, you can get away with using a lighter moisturizer. But in the autumn, when the air is drier, you’ll need to switch to a heavier moisturizer to prevent your skin from becoming dry and flaky.
3. Protect your skin from the sun
Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean that you can skip the sunscreen. UV rays can still damage your skin, even in the autumn. Make sure to apply sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy outside.
4. Add a serum to your routine
As we age, our skin produces less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. To combat this, add a collagen-boosting serum to your autumn skin care routine. This will help to improve the appearance of your skin and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Don’t forget about your lips
Your lips can become dry and chapped in the cooler autumn weather. To prevent this, make sure to use a lip balm or chapstick that contains sunscreen. This will help to protect your lips from the sun and keep them hydrated.
These are just a few tips on how to transition your summer skin care routine into autumn. By following these tips, you’ll be able to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful all season long.
As the summer comes to an end, it’s time to start thinking about transitioning your wardrobe and skin care routine into autumn. By adding layers, choosing darker colors, and incorporating texture, you can easily transition your summer pieces into fall. And by exfoliating regularly, using a heavier moisturizer, and protecting your beautiful black skin from the sun, you can keep your skin looking healthy all season long.
Although summer heat is still a big deal for a lot of you, take these tips and be ready for the transition when Autumn begins and arrives. Don’t wait, start transitioning your wardrobe and skin care routine today!
