Fall is here!

September through November brings in the cooler temperatures here in New England which usually vary between 38F-78F so you may want to start adjusting your wardrobe in preparation for the next few months.

A jewel-toned jacket in a classic silhouette gives your fall look a bright boost.

By the end of September you should have already put away things like summer flip-flops, sandals, shorts, tank tops, light cotton blouses or any beach attire. Turquoise and corals are also colors that will not be worn again until next spring so then you should swap them out for more fall-like tones and colors.

Fall 2022 Color Forecast

See the Pantone Fall 2022 report here.

Take Stock of Your Fall Items

After putting your summer items away, bring out to the front some layering pieces like scarves, raincoats, jackets and light sweaters/cardigans. This is a great time to evaluate your fall/winter wardrobe by making sure everything that you are keeping fits you right, no presence of stains, rips, missing buttons, or broken zippers and the best time to get it taken care of is of course sooner rather than later. Don’t forget that all accessories like scarves, hats and gloves need to be checked for wear and tear also. Get those winter coats dry-cleaned and take the time to clean and polish all your boots/shoes.

If you had any items that you know you shouldn’t or couldn’t wear anymore, set aside a bin for “donate” and another bin to “sell”. But, only try to sell an item if it’s on trend, clean and in perfect condition. Save the spring/summer clothes for next spring since consignment shops liquidate their spring and summer stock to make room for Fall/Winter items.

Pro tip: go through your seasonal wardrobe a few months before the start of a season to get the best price on consignment.

I can’t tell what NOT to wear!

Bright accessories can contrast with fall tones for a modern look.

If you’re short on time or not sure about what items still work best for you, consider hiring a closet organizer or image consultant to do it all for you. You will certainly appreciate the ease of getting dressed no matter the occasion!
