Labor Day is fast approaching, which means we start saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall! With a new season approaching, it’s time to switch up your wardrobe and Labor Day is a great day to start.
Obviously, everyone knows not to wear white after Labor Day, but what else do you need to prepare for? As fashion changes with the leaves, it’s time to mix up your style to be more fall-friendly. Let’s start working on your wardrobe for Labor Day and beyond.
Preparing for Labor Day
For the long weekend, you’ll obviously have to prepare various outfits for your Labor Day activities. Whether you’re heading to the beach or going to a friend’s BBQ, you’ll want something cute yet casual.
During the day, we recommend a cute pair of high-waisted shorts because it will make you look great no matter if you’re headed to a casual pool party or something a little fancier. Pro tip: make sure to have a top that you can easily tuck into your shorts. It’s a simple outfit that makes you look like you’re ready to go anywhere this holiday.
Another great accessory is to bring a hat. Not only can you shade your skin from too much sun, it’s a great additional piece to bump up your outfit. If you’re investing in a hat now, avoid floppy straw hats because that screams summer and not a good hat to transition for fall. Instead, check out the felt brim hats (like this one) that works for both seasons.
When nighttime hits, you’ll want to have an extra change of clothes on hand — just in case you and friends what to go out. We recommend having a maxi dress on hand because it still has the casualness of summer, but you can easily dress it up with gold accessories or a pair of sandals with a heel.
Post-Labor Day Outfits
While we adore the bright colors of summer, it’s time to start changing the your wardrobe’s palette. It’s the easiest way to move into fall fashions and some pieces could still be used for fall too!
Instead of working a bright neon shirt with your high-waisted shorts, try instead a burnt orange or a teal color for your top. It still gives you that unique, pop of color for your wardrobe, but they’re colors that work for fall as well. That’s what we call a win-win.
Even though Labor Day marks the end of summer, the summer heat could still go past the holiday weekend. You’ll want to find pieces that are flowy, yet could still be worn in fall. Maxi dresses continue to still be a great option for both seasons and when it gets colder in fall, you can easily pair the dress with a jean jacket for more coverage.
When it comes to your post-Labor Day outfits, just remember to find a perfect blend of summer and fall and you’ll be set for the upcoming months!
