October first is seventeen days away, which means that it's already time to starts putting away the sundresses and switching out your wardrobe to comfy booties and leather jackets. Fall flies by in a flash, so it is important to take advantage of the crisp weather and beautiful foliage (especially for your Western, MA) ladies, while you can. But if you're unprepared for it- there's no fun in that!
When switching out your closet, it doesn't make sense to toss everything you own- in fact there's a few ways to make use of old clothing articles so that you don't have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. You can recycle a lot of what you already own by wearing them in different ways. There's a huge difference between being bored of wearing something and it being "out of style" or in this case-out of season.
Another fall fashion tip that I like to recommend is creating a morning kit for yourself, or simply laying out your clothes the night before. For the mornings that you're running late or that you have to be in the office early, if you completely plan out your outfit, accessories and hair plans the night before- you not only save yourself a bucket load of time (to do other things that could make you late, like brewing your coffee from home or trying a new makeup technique...aka me) but you also give yourself the opportunity to really see what you have. That way, if you're missing something or there's a staple in your closet that you tend to use often, you'll be able to see what you're missing or need to complete your fall outfits.
Last but certainly not least- the most important tip I can give you to switching your seasons over is to switch over what you have BEFORE you start shopping. More so, plan ahead. Try to make categories of what you have already, so that if there's anything extra or left over that you need, you can plan accordingly. By doing this, you won't go into a department store blind- and by every temptation that you see. You'll also end up saving yourself in the long run from spending unnecessary amounts of money on things you don't need. You'll also have space for the things that you do buy instead of stuffing a ridiculous amount of items into your drawers, to only have it get crammed, wrinkled and lost into an abyss of clothes.
