I’ve slowly started to transition my Summer clothes out of my closet so I can begin replacing them with fun Fall pieces! I live in Maryland, so although we’ve experienced some 60-70 degree days in September, it has mostly been warm weather! As much as I would love to break out the blanket scarves and flannels, I have to refrain because heat stroke happens. I wanted to show you some of my favorite early Fall, transitional pieces that you can pair with Summer tops or shorts until it is cooler weather!
I’m so happy denim skirts are in style again! I was obsessed with the overly distressed and embroidered versions back in the day, so I feel a little nostalgic when styling this piece! This one is so cute because of the button front detail, which is so on-trend for Fall! I’ve seen so many dresses and high waisted jeans that have this similar style! I love denim skirts because you can dress them up or down. On more casual days, I’ll wear this with a tucked-in graphic tee and sneakers. For a dressier, feminine look, I’ll pair this with a lace shirt or a pastel colored top with wedges or heels. I can even make this work for a casual work outfit with a button up shirt and a pair of flats! This is such an easy piece to transition into Fall and you will definitely get your money’s worth with the variety of looks you can create!
Loft has definitely become one of my favorite stores over the past year! I initially started shopping there for professional clothes, but I’ve started buying more casual pieces over the last few months and I’m so impressed with the quality! There are always great sales happening, so if you find something you like, I definitely recommend waiting for it to be discounted! I love camo print and olive green, so I was super excited whenever I saw these pants! Although they’re not for everyone, I think they’re really cute. I haven’t seen many people styling camouflage pants and I liked that they were unique in that way! Since camo print matches nothing, it kind of goes with everything, haha! I wear these with black, dark gray, cream, and burgundy tops! These also look so cute paired with a denim or leather jacket!
Old Navy Classic Ballet-Back Tee
I love wearing stripes all year long, but these cute, quarter length sleeved tees are perfect for Fall! I love buying basics from more affordable stores because they’re something I usually repurchase every year since I wear them so much! These come in so many different Fall colors and are super flattering. They have the scoop, ballet-back cut, which is so classic. I love wearing these with a low bun to showcase the back detail. You can wear these alone or easily throw a cardigan over top once it starts to get cooler. I get Parisian street-style vibes from this shirt and it is under $20! So happy about this affordable find!
Gap “Tencil” Tie-Belt Shirt Dress
I love denim dresses and this is my first one that is dark wash! I’ve only ever owned light or medium colored denim dresses so this one screamed Fall to me! It’s super weird, because I actually found this dress at Marshalls, but I also saw it in the Gap store at full-price, so I would absolutely check your Marshalls or TJ Maxx before purchasing it at a Gap store! The Tencil fabric makes it feel super soft and buttery on your skin. I love the tie-belt because it helps give the dress shape and will be very figure flattering on so many body types. I think this will look cute now with bare legs and wedges, but I’m really excited to wear it with colored tights and booties. I think this will be adorable with a large plaid blanket scarf draped around or a suede cabby hat! I am so happy I picked up this piece and I think I will be able to style it in so many different ways!
Sam Edelman Petty Ankle Bootie
I am extremely excited for these booties because first and foremost, they’re incredibly comfortable and secondly, they’re black with a brown, wood heel! I have been scouring the internet for black booties with a brown heel for months and finally discovered these! Traditionally, most come with a matching black bottom, but I think this wooden heel makes them more casual and unique! I love the contrast between dark and light and think they’ll match everything in my closet! They’re a soft suede, which screams Fall, but I’m not afraid to start wearing these now with dresses and jeans. When I checked to find a link to the shoes, I saw they’re actually on sale at Nordstrom, so if you think that you may need these (trust me, you do), I would go ahead and scoop them up now!
Nike Classic EZ Slip-On Tennis Shoe
I’ve never received more compliments on a pair of shoes than I do with these babies! I have mine in the color, “Dusted Clay/Summit White” and although they look suede online, they’re actually more of a leather fabric! The color is perfection for Fall and will match anything! They’re the perfect shoe to dress down an outfit and these are also ridiculously comfortable. I love the slip-on style because it’s not overly athletic, like you’re not going to go to the gym in these, but they give you the functionality of wearing a sneaker with a cute outfit if you plan on walking long distances or standing! These are a must-have for me and I wear them so much throughout the week because they go with everything!
As I was putting this blog post together, I realized that the photos would’ve looked much nicer if they were on a real human 😂 so let me know if you would like to see styled outfits featuring yours truly! I never really thought about doing that before, but since I really enjoy writing these fashion posts, I think it would be fun! Please let me know in the comments what kind of transitional pieces you find essential with Fall approaching! Thank you so much for reading!
