Transitioning from one season to another isn’t always the easiest task. As the new season emerges, we start to crave after finding new style identity that both matches the weather and also our own personal look. The crisp early autumn mornings and still (surprisingly) warm afternoons are the current state of the weather and it might feel difficult to balance between your fall and summer wardrobe. But alas, no worries! We collected you the best tips for how to keep on wearing your favourite summer pieces during the new season and make them really work seamlessly even during the office hours!

The Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are wonderfully easy pieces to style for the fall season. A chunky cardigan can look a bit frumpy with your maxi dress – swap that instead to a well-structured jacket, like this one à la Doriane van Overeem. Leopard/animal prints are having a moment this fall so why wouldn’t you start early this year? Finish the look with a nice pair of earrings and a statement hat and a tote bag big enough to fit all your daily essentials from laptop to water bottle.

Breezy Pastels

Pastels for fall? Oh yes! Although we love to shift towards more autumn palette as the nature around as changes into colourful scene of warm tones, mixing the game a bit with some purrdy pastels feels refreshing. For example, try combining burgundy red with some cool light pink. So chic and fresh! Berets are still having a moment this fall, so stock up with Shanghai Tofu's JE NE SOY QUOI berets asap!

The Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are some of the easiest pieces to make your summer look really pop. This lovely jumpsuit from Uhana Design transforms easily into office wear with just a simple jacket that polishes the look more sophisticated and put together. Add your favourite statement jewellery and you’re good to go!

The Summer dress

Early Fall really is a great time to get creative with your layering. Don’t toss that summer dress to your storage just yet – instead layer a simple white t-shirt under! Add a pair of fresh sneakers, a scarf and a cute bag and you’re good to go. Even the lightest summer dress will look instantly more Fall appropriate when combined with the right accessories.

The Denim Skirt

Denim skirts are an easy summer staple that work perfectly with tank tops and sandals. However, this season swap those summer pieces with a chunky knit like this one from Odd One Out, opaque tights and ankle boots and you’re styled ready for when the temperature drops.

The Camisole top

Layer a cute turtleneck-top under your favourite summer top and your look will be fall-tasctic! Try the sheer top from Tramp in Disguise, the see-trough material gives your look a lovely shimmer with attitude. Top off the look with some simple accessories like the Large Case Meeting pocket by LUMI.

Now, go and get inspired with what exciting combinations you can create with your summer to fall wardrobe!
