The short period between summer and fall can be a little tricky for fashion: it’s not hot enough to wear a bikini all day and it is definitely not cold enough to break out the sweaters. It can be difficult to find the perfect balance between fall and summer, but not to worry! There are some amazing fashion trends and staple clothing pieces that are perfect for the transition from summer to fall fashion. From light jackets for layering to dresses with boots, there are so many ways to play with your style during this time.
Long button-down cardigan
The trickiest part of this transitional period is that although the days can be warm, nights tend to be a little cooler. The most essential piece of transitional clothing you can have in your closet right now is a chic button-down cardigan. You can throw it over pretty much anything, from a tank top to a formal dress!
The blazer trend is not going anywhere, and what better time to break them out again than transitioning to fall? Pair a chic blazer with a pair of shorts and a white tee or a mini dress and you will be turning heads on the street.
Oversized button-down shirt
The perfect transitional top from summer heat to fall breeze, the oversized button-down is very much in style right now. They are lightweight and can be worn casually with a pair of jean shorts, or with a leather jacket for a more elevated look.
Flowy Maxi Dress
If maxi dresses have been a summer staple for you, hold onto them! They are perfect for when the air starts to cool down a bit and can easily be dressed up or down. From floral prints to solids, maxi dresses are the perfect transitional dresses for our more feminine ladies.
The midi dress serves pretty much the same purpose as the maxi dress, except it’s a better option for when the days are a little warmer and you want to let your legs in on the last bit of summer sun. Pair with some doc martens and you are ready to go.
Peep-toes are the perfect shoe for when you’re not committed to moving on from the sandal look but want to make it a little more appropriate for fall. It’s practically the best of both worlds and the perfect transitional shoe.
Light knit sweaters
Since the nights are starting to get a little cooler, make sure you have a light knit sweater with you at all times so you can warm up during those unexpected temperature drops.
Jeans are always in style and an essential part of every season’s wardrobe. A good way to transition your jeans into fall is by swapping out lighter wash jeans for a darker pair that better suits cooler temperatures.
Mini skirts are a girl’s best friend: they can be worn in the summer with a cute top and perfectly transition into fall when paired with tights.
We love jumpsuits—not only because they are the most comfortable thing you could wear—but because they make the perfect transitional outfit if you are looking for something stylish, yet light and breezy!
