Dresscode: Summer to Fall Transition Written by: Karen Curtis of Your Stylist, Karen Photographed by: Kasi Perkins

Summer in the DMV was epically memorable and equally as hot. There were plenty of day parties, Nationals baseball games and, of course, everyone’s favorite monthly food indulgence, Truckeroo! I will miss rocking shorts, rompers and my favorite swimming suit but I must admit that I am excited about fall fashion. The temperature has started to drop and it is now time to start transitioning the summer wardrobe to fall. I am a big fan of light layering because it allows for an easy transition to changing temperatures. Here’s how I plan to rock fall 2014 trends!


I typically shy away from the boldon-bold color combination, as lively colors are usually prevalent in the summer. However, it works well for fall when worn with heavier fabrics. This look is less Lily Pulitzer and more Jem and the Holograms! Make this trend your own by mixing fabrics and fun accessories like bright earrings and bags. Be prepared to turn quite a few heads if you rock this trend because bolder is better!


This fall, you’re going to see knits everywhere. Like head to toe, all knit everything! What’s cool about this trend is that it also falls in line with the monochromatic trend. It gets nippy in my office so any trend that promotes warmth is one I will keep in heavy rotation. Knits tend to be more form fitting, so be prepared to keep that summer workout going!

W E S T E R N Pull out that chic fedora, the turquoise and silver jewelry, or even a cute thin bolero tie, because the Western trend is rolling out this fall. This is a way more sophisticated take though, and I like to think of it as “westernmeets-the-city”. Silhouettes are sleek and chic versus rodeo-girl friendly.
