I mentioned this on Instagram this morning but today’s look is my last slightly summery look. Really it’s a great combination to wear right now as we transition from summer into the fall season. While I know we’re all very ready for it, signs of fall are only slowly starting to appear. Case and point, it being slightly cool this morning while shooting some blog content. 

BUT hopefully this means those crisp mornings will be happening a lot more frequently! As well as crisp evenings. Oh how I cannot wait for those! Either way, it’s time to start preparing for those cooler temperatures. Whether it’s a new pair of jeans, some light sweaters, new boots, or all of the above plus some. 

So, today,  I am sharing 5affordable Summer to Fall transition essentials. The best part about these wardrobe essentials is the fact that they can be worn now and then into the fall season with additional layering (depending on where you live).

5 Summer to Fall transition Essentials 

A great pair of jeans

Some of us wear jeans through out the year, some of us do not. For the most pair, I’m the latter. So come end of summer, I’m actually really excited to pull out my favorite pair of jeans. And more often than not, I look forward to scooping up a new pair, for the new season. 

If you’re in the market for a new pair, maybe opt for a popular trend for the new season. Like boot cut crop jeans with a little flare. They’re incredibly flattering, fun to style, and a little different than your typical skinny jean or boyfriend. 

Or go the classic route with a great pair of skinny jeans that you can wear with EVERYTHING! As well as dress up or dress down. 

Basics for layering

This summer I have chatted a lot about basics (Affordable Summer Basics You Need and The Pants that Got Me Wearing Pants Again) the reason for that is that I have FINALLY realized how important they are. They are truly the backbones of your wardrobe and help you to create basically endless combinations of looks. Therefore, having a few really great basics that’ll transition from summer to fall are definitely an essential! 

Think basic tees, tanks, long sleeve tees, and maybe even a bodysuit or two. 

Neutral Statement Earrings

Time to make the switch from brightly hued earrings to more neutral pieces. Think shades of brown, hunter green, navy, and other jewel tones. 

For me, this pair of tiger eye hoop earrings are the perfect pair! They go with everything and add a little something extra with the tiger eye beads. 

Cozy cardigan

A duh, right? Come end of summer, early fall we need all of the cozy cardigans. They’re essential for those crisp mornings and evenings we chatted about earlier in the post. Plus they’re perfect for throwing over your basics. See how this is coming full circle? haha

A new pair of sunnies

Lastly, the end of one season and the beginning of another calls for a new pair of sunglasses. Whether you try out a new trend or go the classic route, it’s fun to switch up this accessory and have a new go to for the new season.
