We are at the tail end of the summer season, and Fall is arriving. To be honest, I’m not complaining. As much as I enjoy warm weather, this past summer was extremely hot, and Fall is my absolute favorite season. If this Fall is anything like the past few Fall seasons have been, it’s not going to get extremely cool very quickly. The summer warmth may stick around for a little at the end of September and possibly into the very beginning of October which means that you’ll need to prepare your wardrobe with transitional pieces. If you’re not familiar with the term ‘transitional pieces’, it pretty much means the outfits that you could get away with wearing in multiple seasons. For this case, it would be something that you would be able to wear on a cooler Summer day as well as on a warmer Fall day.

My closet is filled with transitional outfits for multiple seasons. Having transitional outfits helps expand your closet and not limit yourself to only wearing a dress, top, or specific outfit for a limited time.
This green dress is my current favorite transitional piece as it is a perfect dress to wear for late Summer and for early Fall. The wrap dress allows me to layer camis or short sleeves tops underneath to make it a little warmer, and if necessary, I could also put on some tights or leggings if it gets too cool. But I can also let it be and just dress the outfit up with a few accessories and wear it for a warmer day.
The material of the dress is not crazy thick, but has enough to keep your arms warm while having enough movement to also let the breeze flow through and keep you cool which makes it a perfect dress for early fall.
I’m also loving how I can wear this dress with a variety of types of shoes. If I wanted to dress it up for a summer day, I would grab some sandals or pumps. But if I wanted to get a little warmer, how about some over the knee boots or ankle booties like the ones that I have one here and off we go for a cool Fall outing with the girls to a winery.
You can also find transitional pieces in tops and bottoms depending on what your personal style is. Looking for transitional tops? I typically like the tops that have an open neckline and 3/4 sleeves or bell sleeves. With the shorter and/or open sleeves, you’re allowing some coverage while also staying cool. And then for the bottoms, my recommendation is for cropped, distressed jeans or midi skirts.
