The fall season will soon be upon us and we’re so, so sad to see our summer essentials go back into the far depths of our wardrobe, but alas, it must be done. Before we bust out of favorite booties and moto jackets, we’re going to milk our warm-weather pieces for all they’re worth. To be sure you’re totally on trend, take a few cues from the world’s most stylish starlets by rocking a few summer staples that may – bonus! — transition seamlessly into fall.
Nicole’s Sexy Shirt Dress
Fashion history dictates that shirt dresses have rarely seen a sexy moment, but today’s most creative designers have found a way to tweak the piece so it’s anything but boring. While our favorite reformed bad-girl took a bit of a break from the spotlight, we’re welcoming her reappearance with open arms. Always reliable for a sexy, chic moment, Nicole is killin’ it in this fierce shirtdress — a garment we never even knew existed. Be on the lookout for shirt dresses with peek-a-boo details to add a flirty spin on a timeless silhouette. Pair with strappy sandals or sexy point-toes to up the ante on this classic look.
Beyonce’s Crop Top & Skirt Combo
Beyonce’s Instagram account is our new favorite thing, not necessarily for shots of Blue Ivy, but for the fashion. The social app has become a Bey OOTD blog of sorts, and we’re adoring every bit of casual, chic fierceness she’s been serving up as of late. From tribal prints to glam jumpsuits and every crop top in between, Beyonce’s style is on point. Her crop top and pencil skirt outfits have captivated our hearts and our wallets as we’ve been searching high and low for the perfect pieces to replicate these looks. While you can certainly rock a crop top during fall time when weather permits, get those bright, tropical styles out of your system now before it’s too late. If those bold prints prove too tempting and you just can’t seem to resist, sport them with dark, neutral pieces to drive them into fall territory. For instance, pair a floral print crop top with a black midi skirt, caged booties and a leather moto jacket for a hot, autumn look that’ll sizzle even after the summer season’s done.
Stripes and summer go hand-in-hand at this point, wearable in just about any event imaginable. From the streets to the club, striped tops can be dressed up or down in an instant. A simple swap for ankle-strap sandals would have made this look oh-so-chic for summer while throwing on a blazer would render it fall-ready in no time. Similarly, a pair of little leather shorts or a flouncy skirt would take this look ten times closer to summer time style. A sleek hairstyle, glamorous hoops and cherry red or hot pink lip create a killer outfit that’s nothing short of fabulous.
