7 Inexpensive Ways To Transition Your Summer Wardrobe to Fall

We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty pleased that it’s officially pumpkin spice and bonfire season! Now that September is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about transitioning your wardrobe to your fall favorites. Rather than totally rethinking your wardrobe, here’s a few fun ways to transform your summer basics into fall staples to easily go from a summer beach day to a fall bonfire! 

Smart Layers:


Dress up a summer cocktail dress by adding a leather or military jacket. You can also grab your favorite cardigan and cinch your waist with a skinny belt for added definition.



An outfit that is playful and perfect for summer can transition to fall with the addition of neutral separates (including blazers, trousers and tops in black, white and nude). Fall is the perfect time to pair classic basics with neon statement pieces such as belts, shoes and hair accessories.

Close-Toed Shoes:


Instantly take an outfit from day to night with a pair of structured heels. Shoes are also a fun way to try out runway trends without committing to an entire outfit.

Opaque Tights:


Sometimes transitioning to the next season is as easy as adding a pair of tights to a dress, skirt or pair of shorts. Express yourself with patterns like stripes and plaids.



Nothing says autumn like boots: they’re the perfect footwear choice for the not-quite-summer but not-yet-winter weather. Play with ankle booties, riding boots and everything in between. Added bonus: you can add leggings for increased warmth and take a number of outfits to October and beyond.



Leather skinny pants and mini dresses look good no matter the temperature. Take your favorite pieces from summer to fall by adding a chunky heel in a seasonal shade like plum or olive, plus layer on a sweater for a chic look.



For a simple accessory that instantly takes an outfit to the next season, just add a scarf! Whether you opt for an infinity scarf in a trendy print like leopard or a classic design with a plaid or polka dot design, you can’t go wrong.

So, now the only question remains – what are your favorite transition pieces? We’d love to know!
