Summer to Fall Transition Dresses

How to layer your summer dress and transition into fall

You’re ready to get the kids back to school and contemplate  tackling those tough projects at work, right? It is never easy to let the summer days go, with the pool hours, the picnics with friends or family, the shopping sprees in the local malls or through the Main street shops. The good news is you can always grab the invisible edge of summer and throw it over the shy first days of  fall. Push the season back and grant more time for your summer outfits to indulge the cozy warm weather by transitioning your favorite garb, with only a few add-ons, into an autumn garment.

Give your summer dress a cozy  makeover by adding  autumn tone accessories and outerwear. For the early fall, when mornings and nights are getting crispy, start wearing sheer pantyhose to keep your legs and feet warm. Later on switch them for tights or leggings in various colors. Pair them with pumps or wedges for work while on weekends go for a  funky fall look, pairing them with ankle boots and warm socks. Create a light layer underneath a summer dress wearing a full or half slip dress. It  keeps your torso warm and help the dress hang smoothly and prevent fabric from perspiration. 

The easiest way to turn a summer dress into a fall essential is to throw on a cozy sweater. A summer dress underneath a  cardigan is the classic and timeless style for a feminine look.  For an edgier look try a leather or snug belted jacket  at your waist and finish the look with a pair of matching boots.  If you are constantly chasing the fashion trends and want to get a trendy look then layer up a blanket coat or a robe coat – one of the most versatile coat trend for the fall season. Remember, layer knits and  big sweaters  over a summer dress don’t have to be bulky. 

I don’t add anything new when I say that accessories jazz up your look and add personal flair. A floppy hat or a wide brimmed hat, an eye-catching scarf, and a pair of ankle boots are the fall statement accessories to begin the season in full swing.
