I get excited every year to write this blog post, because fall fashion is simply the best! The fall transition is the perfect time to refresh your closet essentials, because you’re dressing warmer, you’re adding layers, and there’s new trends every season to play with! There are lots of exciting choices out there, but the best advice I can give is to stick to the staples, and add trendy touches as you go. The idea is to create an effortless wardrobe with pieces that are timeless, classic and still staying true to your personal style! Here are 5 fall transition staples to shop now, including some of my favorite transition pieces that I personally ordered…
I am listing cozy cardigans first because they are the absolute #1 must have for a transitional wardrobe. You know that moody fall weather, when one second you’re cold and the next you’re sweating? Cardigans are the ideal fix! I love cropped cardigans too, they’re super flattering and it’s a fun way to keep cropped items from summer alive in your wardrobe! I filled a shopping cart of new cardigans from Mango…
Turtlenecks are a trend can be layered under blazers, dresses, sweaters, you name it! And it’s super cute to peek out from under the collars. Not only is it a warm layer for cool days, but also adds a chic element to any look! I also love short-sleeve turtlenecks like this one from Mango, because it screams “fall” but isn’t going to give you a heat stroke on warmer days!
PRINTED MAXI DRESS
Fall weather is the perfect time to grow your dress collection. Focus on more prints to keep the mood bright and playful. And you don’t have to stop wearing your summer dresses, there are lots of stylish ways to keep wearing them in the transition season!! Swap sandals and a sun hat, for chic booties and a blazer or denim jacket. Easiest outfit ever! I love this printed dress from Mango.
Leather is a my favorite trend, every season! It’s perfect for the fall transition because its not too heavy, and still warm enough for breezy days. You can wear it in so many ways, too! One of my favorite ways to style leather jackets is over a little white dress with some edgy booties. This Amazon faux jacket is so cute and an amazing price. I also love this classic style from Treasure & Bond, currently on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!
Blazers are my go-to fall transition piece because they immediately make you look so sophisticated, while keeping you warm. Yes they work for your business meeting, but you can wear it just for fun too! For a casual look, style your blazer with a graphic tee and biker shorts. For date night try a mini skirt and booties! That’s called work-life balance! I’m a huge fan of white/cream blazers like this one for every season, it’s such a bright pop. I’m also excited to order this beige L’agence blazer from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!
