This has been the summer of tour merch. Everyone from actual pop stars—Justin BieberKanye West—to people who just thought it would be fun to do a take-off on the model—hi, Bella and Gigi Hadid—have contributed to the veritable cornucopia of concert swag on offer of late, and if you don’t have at least one baseball cap/t-shirt/pair of sweatpants with someone’s face/tour name/album cover on it, who are you?

Now that it’s fall, it’s too cold to step out in your go-to styling routine of matching whatever tour merch of the day with a pair of cutoffs, but you’re not about to be seen in public wearing your Rihanna tee with a cardigan over it. We repeat, you are not about to be seen in public (or private, for that matter), pairing a concert tee with a cardigan. Not OK.

Instead, try one of these pieces to effortlessly transition your tour merch haul from summer to fall—we’re feeling bomber jackets, leather leggings, perfect boots, and the best slip dresses in the world.

This intermediate-to-advanced styling is not for the weak spirited among us, but if you're feeling a bit quieter than a full-on crushed velvet slip dress with your best long-sleeved concert tee paired with a baseball cap and sneakers, leave off the hat or go with a different material for the dress. But—trust: It can be done.

Extremely easy way to take all your summer tees from high-80s to low-60s (and below): Layer, layer, layer. Whether you go with a mesh turtleneck for a warmer fall day or rock your Purpose tour shirt over a thin cashmere sweater, turtlenecks under tour tees are a fun way to go.
