5 Outfit Ideas to Make Transitioning to Fall a Breeze

Written By: Girl Tyler

Sweater weather is officially here! Cozy knits and edgy tights, leggings and scarves, turtlenecks, and long coats; fall fashion means high fashion. Many serve the best styles during the autumn months, but before you abandon your summer pieces, give them a second look. Style knows no season, tbh! Summer solstice meets fall foliage. Get creative and immerse yourself in the best of both worlds. We’ve studied trends from today’s style forecasters and found 5 transitional outfit ideas to up your style game this fall.

Layer Up

Slip dresses were a huge deal this summer. No need to push them into the back of your closet, never to be seen until next year. Layer them up with a blazer, cardigan, sweater, or leather jacket. Pair them with booties and sneakers.

Pleated Skirts

Ease into fall with the versatility of a pleated skirt. Dress them up or down with oversized blouses, hoodies, a leather jacket, fall coats, turtleneck sweaters, graphic tees, wool sweaters (tucked in or out), a blazer...the possibilities are endless!

Biker Shorts

Don’t discount the power of biker shorts in autumn months. The weather is pretty wild so make the two seasons collide. One minute you’re cold then the next you’re burning up. Go summer from the waist down and autumn up top. Dress up biker shorts with an oversized blazer. Channel your inner Princess Diana and reach for her iconic go-to look: a sweatshirt, biker shorts, tube socks, and a sleek pair of sneakers. Black biker shorts are always classy. Switch up your bottoms with brown or gray. Go animalistic and grab a leopard print.

Lavender Hues

Pastels are always reserved for springtime, which usually rolls over into summer, while deeper hues dominate fall months. Burgundy and brown own autumn months but the fashion streets are saying lavender is in the mix. Purple shades are classy and sleek. Mix and match them with grays and black. Jazz them up with silver accessories.

Puff Sleeves

Puff-Sleeve pieces have become wildly popular in recent years and 2021 is no different. Expect to see summertime puff-sleeve dresses, tops, and jumpsuits this fall. The key to transition them over into fall is to compliment them with trendy accessories! Throw on a scarf. Wrap it up in a statement belt. Strut your stuff in mid-calf boots.
