Summer is still in full swing right now, but there is no better feeling than finding different looks and pieces that can transition into several seasons effortlessly. From oversized blazers to vegan leather, these summer-to-fall pieces are essential for your transitional wardrobe. Here are five transitional pieces that will elevate your wardrobe and keep you looking on-trend until the end of the year.
If there is one piece that is essential to have in your closet all year round, it is the blazer. A good blazer can be mixed with anything from shorts, skirts, or even with your summer dresses. So whether it be oversized, tailored, or cropped, the blazer can easily transition any summer look to a fall statement outfit.
Long sleeve t-shirts
They may be a hubble wardrobe essential, but you can never have too many classic light-weight long sleeve tees. Whether it is for layering underneath a cozy jacket or going solo with a pair of your favorite denim, this is the quintessential seasonal transition piece. Varying necklines such as the tissue turtleneck or an asymmetric hem paired with a simple monochromatic color or an amplified color block will definitely make a fall statement.
Luxe leather has been on trend all year, summer being no exception. From vegan or faux leather shorts to skirts, the secret to its versatility is all in the silhouette. Sharp, shiny and super-structured, leather really is quite unlike anything else in your wardrobe, so that means it will immediately give basics an edge. And by basics, we mean everything from simple white T-shirts to polo-necks and cashmere knits, making it an excellent trans-seasonal material.
Wearing the metallic trend may seem a little scary if you haven’t worn it before, but it’s actually simple to pull it off if you know how to style and contrast your metallic clothing pieces with non-metallics. Metallics can give a cooling effect, perfect for the summer and also would work great for the holiday & festive season, making it the perfect transitional piece.
Floral Print Dresses
Florals for spring may not be “groundbreaking”, but transitioning this classic print into fall will definitely be innovative. Long sleeves or a midi length with lightweight material will be the best choice to take this look from summer to fall effortlessly. Pair with your ankle boots or sneakers for the perfect chic fall outfit.
