Transition Dressing

Transition dressing and bridging the gap between Summer and Fall can be a challenge. You don’t want to let go of your Summer wardrobe – Or Summer – But things are starting to cool down. For me, this time of year is always about pulling some Fall items out of the back of the closet, holding on to some of my warm weather favorites, and maybe picking up a new piece or two.

Here’s my guide to nailing that Summer-to-Fall transition.

Top Your Maxi:

I for one LIVE in maxi dresses during the Summer. {I have this Lush knit maxi in four colors!} So the thought of pushing them to the back of the closet is disheartening. If you’re like me and aren’t ready to give them up – Try topping your maxi dress with a cropped jean jacket or moto jacket.

A chic little jacket is a quick and easy fix to make your maxi seasonally appropriate. And as the temps start to drop, you can switch out your sandals for pointy toed ankle booties.

The Tight Stuff:

Have a favorite pair of black shorts or a romper or playsuit that you’ve been living in all Summer? Try adding a pair of tights! If your look is all about floral or prints, you could try an opaque pair of black tights. But if you’re sticking with a black or monochrome look, you could spice it up with some Swiss dot or polka dot tights.

Blouse It:

Whether it’s your favorite mini skirt, perfectly fitted cropped pants, or a sweet little pair of shorts, you don’t have to give them up just yet. Skip the t-shirt or tank top you’ve been sporting with them and pull out your favorite long-sleeved blouse.

Transition Dressing: Summer to Fall

While I still have some fun Summer-like activities on the horizon, I’ve also got my eye on Fall style.

Why? Well here in San Francisco “Summer” is a fluid concept – We go from fog and wind to rain to shirtless-people-in-the-park warm in a given week.

Consistent we are not.

Plus, more importantly, I adore Fall fashion. It’s my favorite sartorial season so read on for some of my picks for this season and tips for how to stylishly transition from one season to the next.

Ponchos:

Ponchos took a chic spin in recent seasons – These go-with-everything layering pieces are a must for Fall this year.

They’re the perfect cover-up for windy days and go great with jeans or slim fitting pants. Try pairing a printed on with jeans and over-the-knee boots for a fun, modern look.

Some of my top picks?

Capes:

Capes can be bold and dramatic, or perfectly every day. This slit sleeved cape-blazer has been a go-to for me the last year.

Want to make an entrance? Try a sweeping silhouette or bold print like the one pictured above. Want a simpler version for topping off your after-work style or putting a finishing touch on your weekend-issued LBD? Try a sleek black version like this DKNY number.

Blanket Scarves:

Somewhere between a scarf and a cape or poncho is this season’s blanket scarf phenomenon. Wear them however you like, they offer warmth and a much needed versatility for the season.

Try a printed version, a gorgeous Fall-ready shade, or a sleek black that’ll go with anything.
