I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you haven’t heard, summer is coming to an end. Days at the beach, picnics in the sun and dining al fresco will be soon be something we wait for in anticipation next year. Turn that frown upside down, remember your hair loathes that summer humidity anyway! Fall is the season to comfortably relax, light layer and not walk around like a hot sweaty mess. So, how do you make an effortless fall style transition and take your summer looks and make them fall worthy? Well, I’ve got you covered. See how I transition one of my late summer fav’s to something chic and fall appropriate.
It’s not difficult to transition your summer wardrobe to fall, but you are going to have to bid some of your hot weather favorites adieu. Unfortunately, in a few weeks your summer hats, sandals, and bags are going make their next big debut in 2018. The good news is you can still sport them in warmer climates til late September, but my midwestern and NYC friends will get that first taste of Fall earlier than they would like.
Don’t put away all your summer staples, transitioning your wardrobe to fall may be easier than you think. You can bring some of your favorite jeans and tops into the season by making the right layering and footwear choices. Keep scrolling to see how I turned my summer look to a fall stunner.

Effortless Fall Style Transition
Even though I live in LA now, I am still a New Yorker. That being said, the colors black and gray dominate a large portion of my wardrobe and there is no better time to bring them out than fall. For this look, I took the same distressed denim and summer cut-out top and paired them with my favorite black blazer, stilettos and black statement jewelry.
Subtle changes were made to my makeup by adding a deep statement lip, but I kept my handbag a lighter tone to tie in the gray from the shirt. With these style adjustments, I am more than ready for fall. Check out my tips below for effortless fall wardrobe transitioning.
Tips for an Effortless Fall Style Transition:
- Choose Your Color Wisely – It’s time to put your bright floral prints away and rock something less summery. Neutral and monochromatic are always a great option. Also, try embracing the color trends of the season.
- Layer it on Lightly – Even though it’s still hot during the day, light layers come in handy while transitioning to fall. Bring out those blazers, drapey cardigans, and light leather jackets.
- Focus on Footwear – Start swapping out those flip-flops, gladiators, and wedges for footwear that doesn’t scream summer. Peep toe or cutout booties are a great option for day or evening looks. While stylish flats and cute sneakers are your best bet for work or weekend.
