Transitioning your closet from summer to fall can be tricky but it doesn’t have to be! The key is to find a few base pieces that you can build on with layers. These base pieces can be basics like a great new pair of jeans or they can be something fun like the perfect summer to fall dress. Once you have a couple of pieces that you know, with the help of a handful of layers, you can style for summer or fall, you’re done!
I found this floral midi dress (also comes in a top, similar for less: one, two) and immediately knew the colors in it made it perfect for summer and fall. I styled the dress here for a summer night out in Jackson Hole (you might recognize this dress from my Instagram Story from our trip!). Although it’s still summer, because I was in the mountains, suede booties were appropriate. Psst, one of my tips for determining if a dress is perfect for summer and fall is to test it with shoes… does it look beautiful with sandals or espadrilles and does it look beautiful with booties or boots? This dress passed my shoe test!
The Perfect Summer to Fall Dress
Suede booties are a must for fall. Hands down, suede booties are one of my most worn items all through fall and into winter too. My pair are from Tory Burch last year but I found some similar Tory Burch suede booties as well as a handful of amazingly priced similar options for y’all. My tip: scoop up a pair now so when the first fall days hit, you’re ready and excited to pull out your new suede shoes!
