Dressing this time of year can be ricky: You’re anxious and ready to wear your new fall threads, but the weather still feels summery. Luckily, you can easily transition your summer wardrobe into fall with the help of a few key accessories and a little styling strategy.


Now: Wear a gauzy summer frock with laid-back leather sandals and summer’s hottest accessory, a choker.

Later: When the temps get cooler, anchor a breezy sundress with ankle booties and a classic denim jacket—light wash, dark wash, whatever works.


Now: Toss this on as a swimsuit cover-up in the waning days of summer, or pair it with your favorite tank or tee and a wide-brimmed hat.

Later: This summer staple works for autumn when layered over tights and paired with a patterned cotton tee with long or three-quarter length sleeves.


Now: In a solid color like navy or fuchsia, this business-casual basic really dresses up a pair of white shorts or jeans for September backyard parties and backyard parties. (Sure, it’s after Labor Day, but you can still rock ’em if it’s warm out!)

Later: Sport it with jeans in a dark wash, a crisp blazer and ballet flats for a super pulled-together ensemble.


Now: The trendiest top of the summer couldn’t look cuter with denim cut-offs or a bohemian-inspired maxi.

Later: Keep your shoulders cozy by layering on an infinity scarf or army jacket on top and leggings and booties in the bottom.


Now: Wear a drapey top with a back that dips low to show off a racer-back or halter bralette that’s meant to be seen.

Later: Let this beauty peek out from under the neckline of a boat-neck sweater or tunic, paired with skinny jeans tucked into knee-high boots.
