Though it’s only August and I still have summer on my mind, my desire for fall shopping (it’s never too soon) and trans-seasonal styling is no less than my thirst for a cool dip in the pool on a sweaty afternoon. As new arrivals are hitting online stores every minute, I’ve handpicked a few trans-seasonal pieces. These versatile finds will make the transition from scorching summer to crisp fall days a breeze.
1. Bell-Sleeve Foliage Print Top from NIPONJJUYA
Finally, there’s been a shift from off-the-shoulder silhouettes to exaggerated sleeves. There’s never been a better time to invest in tops with oversized cuffs! Wear this soft, flowy and voluminous blouse with plain pants to breeze through your working day.
2. Buttoned Midi Dress with Cutout Bow Back from MASANDCHRIS
Here’s the plan: to live out the days of hot weather and enjoy the ease of summer dressing. It starts with sticking to summer dresses that work well with layers as the temperatures start to drop – hence this flattering buttoned style.
3. Checkered Longline Shirt from clicknme
Oversized and off-kilter, this layer is gifted with endless styling choices. It may not seem like the season for a jacket, but a longer button-down is a great transitional piece to add to your wardrobe right now. Combine this relaxed number with slim-fit pieces for cool evenings!
4. Tailored Checked Skirt with Patch Pockets from UPTOWNHOLIC
Power suits are making a comeback – or has the trend ever gone away? Tailored skirts are an easier way to wear the trend while it’s still warm. To make a statement with it is effortless. Simply style with a graphic tee on the weekends and with a matching blazer for the office.
5. Matching Blazer and Shorts from Ashlee
This fall is the time to invest in sets, and my eyes landed on this sultry blazer-and-shorts combo immediately. Look at the fitted cut and decorative buttons. Let the two coordinating pieces do the styling work for you.
6. Pleated Mini Skirt with Lace-Up Detail from Anlay
Sweet pleats and the lace-up detail at the side make this sporty skirt particularly attractive. It’s one that can be worn straight into fall. You can style it with a light sweater and mules as it gets cooler, and score all that street style credit.
7. Wide-Leg Pants with Self-Tied Bow from ZIZIBEZIRONG
These pants are sure to become a trusty building block for the season ahead. This pair is roomy, smart, office-friendly and comfy, with a self-tied bow detail to keep it cool and unexpected. It’d look great with just about any shirt.
8. Color-Block Knit Tank Top from DABAGIRL
This two-tone knit tank is the ultimate in edgy summer tops, but don’t underestimate how effortlessly it can transition to cooler weather. Throw a bomber jacket or linen blazer on top to put together a brunch look.
9. Round Woven Bag from Chlo.D.Manon
I plan to keep using my basket bags well into fall. They remind me of those stress-free weekend afternoons spent on a picnic blanket. This round crossbody version is a refreshing variation for errands and day dates.
10. Slingback Flat Slides from FROMBEGINNING
There are many on-trend slides and chic mules out there, but none as minimalist and practical as this sleek pair, thanks to the handy slingback that assures a snug fit. It’ll go with everything. The slingback is perfect if you’re looking for something more polished too.
