Transitioning your look from summer to fall isn’t the easiest feat to master: but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. It’s a matter of learning how to layer properly, mix lighter fabrics with richer textures, and think about your favorite warm weather pieces in a new way. In fact, when you get it right, working your summertime staples into your autumn rotation pays off like woah — and we don’t even mean just wallet-wise either (though there is plenty to be said for shopping your closet). Think about it: You’re starting off the season in pieces you already know you love. What’s better than that?
To get you started on the road to reinventing your look, we’ve put together 5 outfits that crush the in-between season. Check ’em out below!
Take your graphic tee and give it the preppy treatment by adding this season’s street style MVP outerwear piece, the menswear blazer. Finish it all off with loafers, a structured mini bag, distressed denim (to keep the cool factor), and clear aviators for a look that’s 100% blogger babe worthy.
You know that off-the-shoulder button down you can’t get enough of? Oh, it’s still very much in play. Luxe it up for Fall with a burgundy vegan leather mini and leopard block heels. A rich brown croc bag, delicate necklace, and glam cat-eyes seal the deal.
Your spaghetti strap plaid mini dress is made for layering. Instead of a tee or turtleneck, try a lacy bell-sleeve blouse. The mix of vibes and textures makes for the perfect mashup. Just add sleek accessories and you’re good to go!
Cropped overalls don’t have to go bye-bye when temperatures start to drop. Toss them over a pretty knit and add ankle boots for more coverage, then throw on a bomber jacket for when the weather really gets cool. (Pro tip: army green is basically a neutral — and plays really well with blush tones.) Keep it all sleek and chic with a slick clutch and mirrored aviators. Hi, day date outfit.
There’s no denying the power of a sexy slip dress and a crushed velvet option is ideal for Fall wedding season. But if you want to get some more mileage out of your jewel-toned beauty (yes), give it a go for daytime with a cheeky tee and a denim jacket. OTK boots keep it sassy and on trend, and a backpack plays off that 90’s vibe perfectly.
