How to Transition a T-Shirt Summer to Fall


The Challenge
Let's take a look at another summer to fall outfit option.  Recently, I styled a Linen Jacket Transition, today I'm going to use a v-neck t-shirt.  While this is very straight-forward, the story here is the color combination.  

The Details
I started with this basic (although a little lower neckline than I prefer), teal-colored t-shirt.  The cardigan is a recent purchase from Target in a shade of green not currently in my wardrobe.  The green-based teal tee blends so well with the cardigan and it's a combination that's unexpected.  Since we're adding layers for fall, this Johnny Was scarf from last season had the absolute perfect blend of colors for the tee and cardigan.   Cropped jeans and dark ankle sandals complete the cooler-temperature look with ease.

The Takeaway
Match up your cardigans and t-shirts.  Are there any combinations that look great that you didn't expect?  Look through your scarf stash.  Do you have any that will add to your coordinated styling?  When purchasing new scarves, keep in mind what you may want to add to complete a look.

  6. I love the scarf combined with the green sweater. I thought that scarf looked familiar....it's in my closet too! I have a green sweater from J.Crew....might have to try this combo!

    1. Thanks so much, Lisa! I just discovered Johnny Was in the last couple of years. Their scarves are amazing. I like a jacket they have, too, but the price is higher than I'd like to pay for the wear it would get here in FL.

  7. Such a fun and colourful tee - you've layered it expertly! :) I smiled as your fall layered outfit is very similar to the kind of outfits I've been wearing over winter - now it's spring in Australia I'm looking forward to it warming up so that I can shed some of the layers!

    I hope that you are having a great week so far! :)
