Add Accessories

Fedoras are a fall must-have. Add a fedora or a wide brim hat to your look for an instant season change.

Consider a leather headband to one of your transitional looks for a fall feel.

I’m the kind of girl that believes throwing on a Moto jacket or a blazer will solve everything. These pieces serve both style and function. On a fall day you might need a jacket because its cool outside. A structured or oversized blazer is a great option.

Sophisticated Sleeves


The summer months are all about sleeveless dresses, but when the temperatures drop the dresses can still work by adding a long sleeve blouse underneath.

This is one of my favorite tips and the one I utilize possibly the most. It’s so easy to just add a long sleeve top underneath your sleeveless dress and make that dress serve as jumper.

Try A Turtleneck


I’m also the queen of the turtleneck, black turtlenecks in particular. By simply adding a black turtleneck or even a printed one to a pair of shorts , a skirt , or sleeveless dress we allow you to seamlessly transition from summer to fall.


A turtleneck is chic, classic, and will always have a space in my closet. But I’ve taken my turtleneck obsession a bit further. I’ve developed a deep love for the knit sleeveless turtleneck. Think of the sleeveless turtleneck as an additional  piece for layering looks.

I work early mornings and it’s typically very cool. So, the sleeveless knit turtleneck works. I pair it with a blazer and I’m warm throughout the brisk morning.  By noon,  the sun is beaming and it’s warm. It gives me the perfect reason to ditch the sweater and show off the sleeveless component of the look.

Make Your Clothes Work for You

Turn your summer dress into a tunic. Throw on a pair of jeans with your favorite summer shirt dress and boom, your summer staple is getting its shine in a whole new season.

I hope these tips help and offer you style inspiration for fall. Are you already making changes to transition your summer staples into fall ? Let’s talk about it in the comments.
