Versatile pieces are key as we begin transitioning from summer to fall. Rather than stock your closet with seasonal-specific pieces that fall under one seasonal look, why not adopt a more fluid fashion philosophy? Choosing pieces that can be accessorized and carried over through seasonal boundaries are both financially friendly and will free up room in your closet. Win win!
Take this full-length black tunic with a fantastic side slit, for example.
For a free-flowing summer evening look, match the black tunic with a pair of wide-leg yoga or gaucho pants. The fabric will fan out between the side slit and create an elegant ruffle. The movement of the fabric as you walk gives off a distinctly bohemian feel, while maintaining the edginess found in the shoulder cut-out.
If boho isn't your style, transform the tunic into a city chic ensemble by pairing with fitted leggings - cropped or full length, with strappy sandals or pumps. With a simple switch of the bottom layer you can create two distinct looks that are appropriate for both summer and fall. Toss a hat or scarf for an extra punch of style, and this look can even extend into the winter months!
