10 Ways to Refresh Your Summer Stay-at-Home Staples For Fall

No one quite knew at the beginning of COVID-19 just how long we'd be required to stay indoors, let alone how much we'd come to rely on our loungewear. With just four weeks remaining in the summer, it's pretty safe to say that the majority of us — especially those of us in states like California, Texas, and Florida — will continue to remain indoors for what looks to be yet another season. So what exactly does one do with all those light and airy summer staples you've spent the last three months wearing? Well, in the words of Project Runway's Tim Gunn, you "make it work" and layer, layer, layer!

From nap dresses and button-downs to matching co-ords and the occasional vintage tee, here's a little inspiration on how some of our favorite influencers are transitioning their summer house staples to something a little cozier for fall — while still looking cool, of course.
