Dressing for changing seasons can be tough to master. One minute you’re hot, the next you’re wishing you left the house with a cozy backup. Enter light layering – key word light. For Summer to Fall transitions, opt for breezy, natural fibers like cottons, linens, or even bamboo.
We’ve curated 5 styles to invest in this transitional-period. They’re comfortable, breathable, and most importantly, will carry you right into Fall and beyond effortlessly.
The Casual Short Suit
This trend seems to resurface every so often, but didn’t seem to really stick in a mainstream way until this year. The nice thing about any suit is just that – it’s a full look made up of separates that can be paired together or with other items in your existing wardrobe. A transitional win-win!
The Crop Top
Instead of wearing solo, try pairing a crop top over another top or dress. We love this because the hem of a crop top typically sits at the smallest part of the waist, therefore redefining it.
The Organza Top
Sheer doesn’t have to mean racey (though it can if that’s more your vibe). Instead, it can be an ultra femme, timeless, and elevated depending on styling – particularly if layered. Organza is typically the fabric of choice for sheer blouses and tops as it has an innate luxe sheen to it. It has structure to it, so when used for garments, it maintains a romantic voluminous shape. Try wearing over a simple Summer croptop, bandeau, or lacey bralette for added subtle sensuality. Alternatively, layer it under a Fall knit like the Skims Cozy Knit Tank.
The Trench Coat
A timeless classic, trench coats serve as a sophisticated alternative to cardigans and dusters. It’s reminiscent of Jackie O., while adding just enough warmth for cool Summer nights. Wear a trench over virtually any look from jeans to a mini dress – you can’t go wrong. If you’re feeling playful, try pastels like pale pistachio or a buttery beige. Or to give the illusion of longer legs, try a cropped version.
