Fall can be pretty fickle where I live. We’ve finally hit the 60’s after last week, which was practically summer temperatures. How it can be so cold in the morning and hot at 5 PM when I’m leaving the office is beyond me. Because of this, I’m really into *transitional style.*
Transitional style has become one of blogging’s hottest buzzwords, so if you’re overwhelmed with transitional style posts, my apologies. The outfit below is my new favorite, and I couldn’t help but share it.
We all have our own sense of personal style. I’m not someone who will just throw on a cardigan/tights/leggings with a summer piece and call it a day. I have my own little equation for the perfect (for me) transitional style, and I’m excited to share it with you today in case you wanted a few tips.
1. Play with textures. I get a little bit stressed out when someone says “Oh, I can just throw a sweater over that!” or “Oh, I can just put tights/leggings under that!” in regards to making a fall piece transitional, and that’s because of the textures. This top could be considered pretty summer-y, but the slickness of the fabric and the playfulness of the eyelet pattern contrast nicely with the heavy, chunky sweater. I’ve found that slinkier, silkier tops transition really nicely. (Like how perfect would this cami be for winter, paired with tweed or wool?!)
2. Invest in a good cardigan in a fall-ish color. I love black, and I love navy… which is exactly why I forced myself to buy a cardigan in a fall-ish color that isn’t black or navy. This oxblood color ise perfect for fall, but will also be appropriate for the holidays, as well.
3. Booties are your best friend in hot weather. Booties are the perfect way to say “hey, it’s fall and I’m here for it!” without committing to riding boots and sweaty calves in 80* weather.
4. Experiment with accessories. This gold acrylic necklace from Marley Lilly is a piece that will be perfect year round, but I think the gold is especially beautiful in the fall. (For reference, I am wearing the medium size. The necklace is also currently on sale!)
If everything about your look is muted like the look above, consider adding a fun pop of color! In the summer, it’s all about hot, almost neon colors. In the fall and in transition periods, I love colors like a vibrant blue or green.
What do y’all think? Do you have an equation to your seasonally transitional styles, or do you just wear whatever speaks to you that morning?
Also, a huge thank you to my friends at Marley Lilly for partnering with me on this post. I’ve been shopping at Marley Lilly long before this blog existed, and it’s always exciting to partner with brands that you already love!
