Labor Day is more than a celebration for the workers of America – it’s a symbolic end to summer, the beginning of a new school year for many and the end of a tortuously hot summer (can you say global warming?). Labor Day weekend is also the time to begin transitioning a light and breezy summer wardrobe into a warmer fall wardrobe.
Green Earth Bamboo is here to help with that task and is offering 10% off all purchases using the coupon code LABORDAY12 September 1st through September 3rd!
To help guide you as you pack up the tank tops and get out the cardigans, here are some tips to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall:
Consider Colors: Fall trends are leaning towards fresh forest green and plucky plum hues. While fashion trends will change, there’s no need to buy a new wardrobe each season. Simply choose one or two pieces in the trend colors such as Green Earth Bamboo’s Casual Organic Dress by Yala or the versatile Izzy Dress by Yala (both available in a plum shade).
The Greatest Fall Accessory: Bamboo scarves offer warmth and style for cooler weather. Pair one with a summer dress you’re not quite ready to pack away or add some color to a pantsuit for an extra pop of color at the office. Green Earth Bamboo offers several options from the Soft Frayed PashBu Scarf by Yala to the Soft and Trendy Infinity Scarf by Yala. Stock up on several in different colors and patterns for plenty of chic options this fall.
It’s not too early for Fall Footwear: Ankle boots are everywhere this season and there’s no need to wait for the leaves to change colors to break out fashionable footwear. Printed pumps are also making a comeback so take a break from the pedicures and slip your toes into a patterned pump!
Keep Your Skirts Working: Leggings like Cozy Cropped Leggings by Yala are perfect to extend the life of cute summer skirts and they look great with the boots you’ve been dying to break out all summer! For colder regions consider organic Heavyweight Leggings by Yala that offer more warmth and a wider waistband for extra comfort. The beauty of bamboo? Because it’s a breathable fabric you can stay warm without feeling smothered!
Wrap it Up!: Layering is a wonderful way to mix and match within a wardrobe and bamboo wraps are a luxurious way to stay warm this season. My go to for work and play is the Laurel Long Sleeve Wrap by Yala but I may soon be investing in the Audrey Long Wrap by Yala for Fall 2012
