Whatever feelings you harbor about summer versus fall, the transition from one to the other is indisputably confusing—especially when it comes to your closet. From dressing for unpredictable weather to negotiating the changeover from summer staples to autumn-appropriate pieces, this time of the year can be tough to turn out for every morning.
Seek a seamless transition (and ease the seasonal strain) by repurposing, instead of retiring, your summer pieces in ways that spell out a refresh for fall.
