As we are officially halfway into August, it might be a trickier time for us fashion enthusiasts. While the weather may still be hot out, the new arrivals are getting us excited about all the fall trends. No need to wait for the changing leaves when you can start wearing those fall pieces now. Here are our 5 essential pieces to transition your style from summer to fall.
1. THE DARK FLORAL MAXI DRESS
Maxi dresses are great for any season, and this dark floral maxi will be a must-have to take you from summer to fall. The cold shoulders and sheer sleeves make it light and breezy for the summertime, while the darker tones signal fall. Complete the look with some cool military-inspired booties.
With the nights being a little chillier in August, these wax coated pants will be a fashion lifesaver. The burgundy hue makes them fun and on-trend, but still neutral enough to mix-and-match with your tops. Or, go for monochrome by pairing them with a burgundy blouse and ankle strap pumps.
3. THE LIGHTWEIGHT TRENCH
A lightweight trench is an essential layer piece for fall, and this khaki option is a gorgeous choice that you can start wearing now. Throw it over your day-to-night dresses or over a blouse/jeans combo to give your look an effortless, yet still stylish, feel.
4. THE COLD SHOULDER DRESS
Shoulder cutouts, gentle ruffles, and a bold floral print – what more could you ask for in a dress? This floral printed tunic dress is a chic option for your girl’s night outs, and can simply be adapted for the autumn weather with some tights and ankle booties.
5. THE CAGED SHOOTIE
Not quite a bootie, not quite a shoe, shooties are the perfect, summer to fall, transitional footwear. Standout and make a fashion statement with these cage shooties. For the ultimate in weekend wear chic, pair them with some feminine floral pants, an open-front jacket, and a suede baseball cap.
