All these and more transitional outfits that will bring you into the new season with elegant ease, below.
The Autumnal Maxi Dress With a Transitional Trench Coat
We’re not asking you to give up on your summer wardrobe entirely. Case in point: this bustier-inspired maxi dress from Esse Studios. For fall, style the staple with Massimo Dutti’s full-length trench coat and a simple pair of fashion flats from Vince. The Row’s Half Moon bag is a perfect match, while dainty jewels from Joolz by Martha Calvo and Lié Studio will shine all season long.
The Suit Vest Staple With a Quietly Luxurious Loafer
The suit vest sensation is carrying over into fall–and we couldn’t be happier. For a take on modern workwear, style the It item with Hill House Home’s black maxi skirt and a pair of Mary Janes from Mango. Hereu’s two-toned tote makes the perfect work bag; and these everyday treasures from Ben-Amun and Jenny Bird delight and dazzle.
The Lightweight Leather Jacket With a Mesh Ballet Flat
The key to mastering any wardrobe transition is a piece of lightweight outerwear. Enter Pixie Market’s leather bomber jacket. Styling-wise, the rest of the look is kept cool and casual with a pair of baggy jeans from Agolde and By Malene Birger’s timeless tank. The pièce de résistance, of course, is this pair of crystal-embellished, mesh ballet flats from Khaite. Need we say more?
The Must-Have Matching Set With a Sleek Shoulder Bag
Like an all-in-one-outfit dress, a matching skirt set has a similar closet appeal. From Australian-brand, Posse, this chocolate brown set is masterfully minimal and incredibly stylish. Finish off the look with a pair of suede loafers from Emme Parsons and Savette’s sleek shoulder bag.
The Clean-Lined Denim Skirt With a Minimalist Mary Jane
No fall capsule wardrobe is complete without a clean-lined denim skirt—and this one from Zimmermann, to be exact. Other prized pieces of this transitional outfit include Staud’s striped shirt, Mary Janes from Aeyde, and St. Agni’s ivory crossbody bag. Earrings from By Adina Edin are not to be ignored, either.
The Fall Tailoring Essential With a Quietly Luxurious Loafer
Blazers are forever in style regardless of the season. This upcoming fall, Tibi’s cashmere-blend blazer checks all the boxes. For everyday, wear with Vince’s plain, but perfect white tee, chic cargo pants from Cos, and a pair of quietly luxurious loafers from Tory Burch. Meanwhile, J.Crew’s suede shopper ties the entire ensemble together.
The Sleeveless Knit Dress With a (Fall) Fashion Flip-Flop
Knit dresses are a fall fashion favorite for a reason—and this fall, we’re sporting (and shopping!) Polo Ralph Lauren’s sleeveless style. Dainty, yet delightful accessories include Toteme’s cream-colored tote bag, a pair of thong sandals from Zara, tortoiseshell sunnies from Celine, and statement gold jewels from Jennifer Fisher.
The Denim Delight With a Pleated Maxi Skirt
Each season, there are those closet classics we return to time and again. Somehow, delightful denim always seems to outshine the rest, like this jean jacket from Tory Burch. To style, wear with Reformation’s pleated midiskirt, Vince’s power shirt, and a pair of Adidas Decon sneakers. Meanwhile, basket bags are perfectly appropriate for fall, like this one from Dragon Diffusion.
The Cozy, Yet Chic Cardigan With a Cargo Pant
For chic, yet cozy coverage, find Loewe’s printed cardigan this pre-fall. Styling tip? Wear it with Vince’s caramel-colored cargo pants and ballet flats from Le Monde Beryl. Fit for fall, finish the look off with Manu Atelier’s suede shoulder bag.
