It’s safe to say that many of us have reached that point of summertime where we’ve had enough heat and humidity and are daydreaming about crisp mornings, comfy sweaters, and all things cozy. While we may be mentally prepared for fall, our wardrobe likely isn’t entirely ready for the change in seasons. Luckily, many of summer’s trendiest pieces can easily transition into fall! Just follow some of these tips and tricks.

Adding layers is the easiest way to transition your summer wardrobe into fall. Let’s start with a super-simple look like a crop top paired with jeans; to transition into fall, simply throw on a blazer and your favorite closed-toe shoes. Now, let’s take a seemingly more challenging piece like a silk cami. Take cues from our girl Haley over at Me and Mr. Jones, and pair it with a fall-colored corduroy miniskirt and an oversized sweater.

If you don’t want to hang up your miniskirts and dresses for the season, we have a solution for you: Don’t. Instead, pair them with tights for a little edge – and a lot of warmth. Do you love a floral miniskirt? French-tuck a lightly distressed or sharkbite sweater into it, add some colorful tights and booties, and you have successfully transitioned a summer piece right into fall.
New Boot Goofin’
Swapping summer shoes for pairs that are a little more fall-friendly is another easy way to transition your wardrobe. If you love the woven pointed-toe slip-on mule look, switch it out for a pointed-toe slide-on booty. Keeping the color the same will ensure that it can still be incorporated into your style. Other shoes that are great for fall include classic Dr. Martens, over-the-knee boots, and sneakers.

Do Not Underestimate the Power of the Maxi
Maxi skirt or dress, it doesn’t matter. If you love these long pieces, they can easily be transitioned into fall by adding an oversized sweater and boots or flats. Leave the sweater as is or knot it up to create some dimension and define your waistline.
Embrace the Darkness
Sometimes all you need to transition an outfit to fall are some darker tones. If you’ve been really feeling the look of linen wide-leg trousers, stay with it; just add warm tones by way of your accessories, and you’ve successfully given fall vibes to your ’fit.
Having transitional clothing can be a lifesaver. Not only do you get to enjoy your favorite pieces longer, but it’s good for your bank account!
