What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice.  The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks.  Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.

What I'm wearing for late summer.

What I’m wearing for late summer.

Fall Trend:  Bell Sleeves.  Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well.  So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!?  This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks.  Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it.  Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.

Fall Trend:  Out Of The Ordinary Baubles.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Gold Chain Details.

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace and mark. Gleam With Pride Ring

A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces.  Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit.  “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall.  The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique.  What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!

Fall Color:  Jewel Tones.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Amethyst Blouse.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer.  I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Fall Staple:  Jeans.  Late Summer Wear Now:  White Jeans.

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May.  These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear!  White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors.  Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.

Fall Staple:  Suede.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Pops Of Suede.

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Pop in some suede during late summer.  I’m wearing a suede fringed sandal from Steve Madden, and switched to my fall bag, a leather tote with suede pieced in.  The sandals are from last year but the tote is the new Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote.
