How to purchase summer to fall transitional clothing. H&M markdowns. Style tips for women over 50. As a frequent shopper, I love a good sale. I'm sure many women would agree with me especially fabulous women over 50! This is the time of year when many fashion retailers are gearing up for the new season. This is also the time of year when many retailers are trying to clear out old inventory in order to make room for new fall clothing. I look at this time as the perfect opportunity to purchase a few deals from some of my favorite retailers. This is also a perfect time to purchase a few summer to fall transitional pieces


In my search for great deals, I scanned the H&M website and compiled a few of my current faves--all from their current markdown selections. Yes, I've done the work so that you don't have to! So, let's begin.

The first item is this sleeveless shirt dress in the color light blue. It is oh so lovely and can be styled in many ways. Of course it can be worn as it is in the photo, with a pair of trousers. You can also wear it simply as a dress, perhaps add a statement belt, heels and for occasions when you want to dress up the look, how about putting on a nice blazer. You can also wear this shirt dress with a pair of many options and a must have not only for summer but as we transition to fall.

...and now for another dress, how about this snakeskin tie belt dress! This calf length dress in woven fabric can surely transition from summer to fall. Dress it up or down, perhaps add a few statement accessories such as a belt and necklace.

Speaking of variety. the next dress has so many style options. This black jacket dress in woven fabric has lightweight shoulder pads and long sleeves with buttons at the cuff. It is also lined and made partly from recycled polyester. As you can see from the photo, the model is wearing the dress with a pair of pants but it can also be worn without the pants, add a pear of sleek pumps to make this outfit a pulled together professional look.

I love this light beige melange knit dress! Straight cut, calf length with wide armholes and a slit on the side. Wear it now, just as you see it. Wear it in the fall with a pair of boots and add a jacket.

Denim is always a must have item to have in any wardrobe. This denim shirt dress can also be styled in many ways. Of course wear it as a dress with a pair of sandals now or later as the weather changes, throw on a pair of booties. You can even wear it as a jacket...add a pair of jeans, a nice top and wear it open as a jacket.

Now for my favorite tops, yes tops that can be worn now and will easily transition to fall.

The last item from my list of favs at H&M is this yummy light yellow crinkle skirt. It is a high waisted (elastic waistband) softly draped delight. This skirt that can easily transition from summer to fall. In the summer, wear it with a summery top and as we move into fall, wear it with a sweater.


In conclusion, these transitional pieces are oh so classy and must have items to add to your wardrobe.
