5 Transition Pieces to Transform Your Summer Wardrobe for Fall

Hello loves! Although the calendar says it’s officially fall, the weather says otherwise. I definitely want to break out my chunky sweaters and over the knee boots, but I also don’t want to sweat my butt off. Enter in - transition pieces. Transition pieces are styles that help you transform your wardrobe from summer to fall without dressing for a cold climate. These pieces, in combination with pieces from your summer wardrobe will help to transform your look for fall while the weather is still warm. Today I am sharing 5 pieces that will help you make the transition from summer to fall along with some styling tips. Let’s hop into the pieces!


Booties are more seasonless than a traditional tall boot, which is why they are one of the best footwear choices for transitioning your looks from summer to fall. Pair them with mini dresses for the perfect transition look.



When you want to layer but don’t want something as heavy as a sweater or a traditional jacket, a blazer is the best option. I love dressing down a blazer by wearing a t-shirt under it. I am definitely looking to add a few more of these to my collection this season!


Denim Jacket

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love a good denim jacket (well actually, I just love denim in general). Since denim jackets are a lightweight layering piece, they are perfect for transitioning your t-shirts and tank tops into fall.

Midi Skirt

Although I wore midi skirts all through the spring and summer, they are a great transitional piece due to their versatility. For transitioning into fall I suggest ditching your cotton midi skirts for satin ones and exchanging your bright prints out for darker ones. These skirts can be paired with anything from a bodysuit to a t-shirt to a sweater.


Backless Mules

Backless mules (also referred to as slides) have quickly become one of my favorite styles of shoes to wear. They add an element of sophistication to a look and make your outfit appear more fall-like. Since the back of your foot is exposed, you won’t be as hot as you would be in a boot or a traditional flat.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what your favorite transitional piece is!
