I live in North Carolina, which is known for its’ crazy weather! It stays summertime warm well into October. My sisters and I used to joke that it never gets cold until the night of Halloween, and we would be so upset about having to wear a coat over our costumes! Suffice it to say, Summer blouses and tops are still a Fall staple for us Southern girls!
I get a lot of my blouses from JC Penney, as I loooove their Worthington line for work blouses and casual knits. Many of their short sleeved or sleeveless blouses are thin enough to be worn seamlessly with a cardigan, jean, or moto jackets in the Fall! I’m showcasing two of my favorite summer blouses from the Worthington line, and hopefully providing a little inspiration on how to take your fave summer pieces into Fall!
How to Transition: Summer sleeveless tops play nicely with lightweight blazers for Fall! I completed this look with caramel colored pumps, but ankle boots, or even riding boots would look very chic with this blazer. This blouse is quite thin, and will also pair well with a belted cardigan!
This cornflower blue floral print blouse is such a staple piece for me! I often wore it to work with navy slacks, or a pencil skirt, but I also love pairing it with denim, as seen above! One feature I love is the tie front accent, which can be worn higher at the neck (for a sexy secretary look) or tied loosely for a more casual look, as I did in the photo.
How to Transition: I paired this top with open toed booties, which are such a perfect shoe for Fall! These boots are from Charlotte Russe. Blouses like this are also perfect for wearing under boyfriend Cardigans or long knitted Dusters.
I’ve picked out some of my favorite blouses from the Worthington line at JC Penney that will be perfect for Fall! Use my Transition tips above for the sleeveless and short sleeve tops! Shop the widget below – be sure to scroll all the way through!
