We are in the middle of a heat wave here in New York. It’s hot. It’s humid.
It’s not sweater weather.
But I am a firm believer in retiring my summer clothes (or at least the super summery ones– you guys know what I mean, right?) after Labor Day. Plus I already packed ’em away to make room for my new fall additions. So I kind of can’t wear them.
That is why transition pieces are so brilliant. If you dig deep you will find awesome closet staples that can easily be worn from one season into the next. And if you don’t have any of these things don’t worry, I took the liberty of picking all new duds out for you.
BOHO PANTS X SLOUCH SWEATER X FLATS
I basically lived in these relaxed, comfy pants all summer. Bring your favorite summer prints into fall by adding a simple, thin sweater and a pair of stylish flats. The structured bag is also great for those of us who need a little more organization as we get back to our daily routines. PS- all of these items are under $100 except the real leather Ralph Lauren tote, but I added a second option under $20!!!
DENIM JACKET X FLORAL DRESS X FLOPPY HAT
A denim jacket will never go out of style. Take your favorite summer dress into fall with a cute hat, a scarf and your trusty denim. You can add knee high socks and boots if you start to feel a chill in the air. Otherwise a cute flat or even a gladiator sandal would still work! Again– all of these picks are wallet friendly! Nothing over $55!!
MILITARY VEST X STRIPED DRESS X SNAKESKIN CLUTCH
Mix patterns and textures with stripes and snakes! I love adding a vest over a simple dress. It adds layers and allows you to still have bare arms during those last few weeks of summertime sun. If it is already chilly where you live then a military jacket would work just as well. I added a long sleeve swing dress to my picks because it is so easy to wear with or without the vest. Everything here is under $100 with the exception of that insanely awesome GiGi bag!
What is your favorite way to head into fall? I love rocking a dress with riding boots. Share your style with me with the hashtag #STYLEglossblog. Can’t wait to see what you guys are wearing!
