Need an All New Fall Wardrobe? No You Don't!

Hi, Barbizon of Akron! We know that typically, with each season change, there is also a wardrobe change... But this isn't always budget friendly! That's why when we saw this blog from SheKnows.com, we had to share it with all of you! That cute summer dress that you love to rock? Well, there's a way to revamp it for the fall! Check out these great tips below!

Look 1: Shirt Style Tunic Top: This is a super easy way to turn a shirt style tunic into just that, a shirt. Add a pair of jeans or pants, tuck in the front like you would a button down or blouse and there you have it. Mix up the accessories or keep them the same. Boyfriend jeans and flats keep this look casual but add some fitted pants and a pump and you are ready for a night out on the town.



Look 2: Short Beach Cover-Up to Top: Taking a beach cover up that has a simple string to cinch the waist is the easiest dress to turn into a top (add a skinny belt or string of your own if needed). Loosen the string and tie it lower towards your hips, next pull the dress up and let it fall, at this point the shirt overhang should cover or nearly cover the string or belt you are using. The look should resemble a peplum top. Alter as you see fit.



Look 3: Pencil Dress to Top: This is probably my favorite way to revamp a dress. So many times we buy occasion dresses that we wear once and have spent a good deal of money on. Get your money’s worth and find a pencil skirt that is either the same length or longer than the dress and layer it over top. Throw on a blazer and grab your perfect work tote to make this look office appropriate.



Look 4: Girls' Night Out Dress to Top: Want to take your fun girls night out dress to the next level? Add some white fitted jeans (that no white after Labor Day rule doesn't apply in my books!), fold the top where a fitted top would normally hit, measure against a shirt you already own or adjust once it is on, and tuck it under all the way around.
