Fashion Friday: Transitional Staples

Before you know it you’ll be trading in your sandals and skin-baring tops for sleeves and boots. Those in between weeks before the chill consistently fills the air can be tricky when choosing what to wear.

To help ease into fall we suggest having a few staples on hand that seamlessly transition from warm summer days to cool fall nights without the fuss of filling your closet with too many new pieces. Here’s what we suggest:

Sleeved Dress

Choose a solid colored piece, or one with minimal pattern, composed of an airy fabric. If you can roll the sleeves, even better. With this dress you’ll maintain that breezy feeling for summer and have a solid base to build on with sweaters and leggings when it starts to get chilly.

Look for pieces like:
Lolya Drapey Dress, Joie $188
Marissa Dress, Amour Vert $128

Weightless Cardigan

A light-weight cardigan is the perfect pick for layering with summer tanks and dresses to extend their wear into a new season. Pick up one in a neutral color that can be paired effortlessly with multiple pieces in your wardrobe. Avoid anything with a loose knit that can snag easily to ensure your piece is an investment that lasts for seasons to come .


Pick staples like::
Studio Wrap, Athleta $89
Seabank Cardigan Sweater, Madewell $88

Pull Over

Sporty in nature, this pick is perfect for lazy Saturdays, but can also be dressed up with a scarf or statement necklace. Keep this on hand for days when layering is necessary. Find a shape that isn’t too box-like and can be thrown over collared shirts and dresses and still maintain a moderately fitted shape.


Look for pieces like:
The Crew Sweatshirt, Everlane $40
Round Neck Top. Eileen Fischer $258


A staple for any season, this button-up can be paired with just about anything. Use it as a swimsuit cover-up or layer it under a cardigan or sweater. It may take some time to find the perfect fit, but it will be worth it. Look for a piece that doesn’t pull at the bust and is made of comfortable fabric.

Pick staples like:
Chambray Oversized Ex-Boyfriend Shirt, Madewell $72
Onyx B Chambray Top, Joie $168
