Summer to Fall Transitional Fashion Trends

September 23, 2016

Buying clothes during this time of the year can be tricky. Designers have started phasing out their summer clothes for autumn and winter styles. And while you can usually find good closeout deals, it can be hard to know which warm weather styles are still worth the investment.

Clothing companies might be ready for the cold, but most of us are still stuck in the sweltering heat for the next month or so. If you're at a loss for what clothes to purchase during this transitional point in the year, take a look at a few of these styles that you can create using some new pieces in addition to those in your existing wardrobe.


Shorts
Yes, you can still wear those trendy denim and black shorts from summer. Just by adding a pair of tights or leggings under your shorts, per the advice of Fashion Tasty, you can keep wearing them no matter how low the temperature dips.

The key is adding the right pieces to go with the outfit. You're going to want a coat, a warm top or sweater, and possibly a scarf to give the outfit additional fall and winter notes. And when you're selecting those pieces, try to stick to the darker tones of fall and winter—deep oranges, reds, and browns in the fall, and dark blues, purples, and blacks in the winter. 


Sandals
Trousers with a relaxed silhouettes are some of the trendy styles of pants right now. As highlighted on Lyst, Fashion names like Jesse Kamm, COS, and Zara are all embracing the style for the season, and if you look at their designs, you'll notice the models aren't wearing pumps. Most of them are actually completing the look with sandals instead.

A relaxed pair of trousers and strappy sandals go together as well as cardigans and pencil skirts. And better still, many of them go on sale this time of year because they'll soon be considered out of season. Stock up now, wear them with your trousers while you can, and continue to wear them in 2017 when things warm up again.


Bomber Jackets
If you can find a bomber jacket on sale, snatch it up! This trend is just about the easiest one to continue to wear into the winter. Why a jacket suddenly rose to the top of the trend charts in the middle of summer is a bit of mystery. However, the look will continue to be fashionable—and much more practical!—when the cold arrives. In fact, reports from The Industry say that bomber jackets are still on the rise, and we can expect to see it stick around well into next spring.

Wear it like you would any other jacket. You can try it over a plain shirt and any denim. Or you can mix things up and try the masculine jacket in combination with a feminine, flowing midi.

It's going to be a little while before we feel a chill in the air. Keep wearing your summer clothes while you can, and when the temperature dips, break out some of these transitional styles for a look that's ready for any weather.

  5. I've been thinking lately of doing the shorts with tights. I think how Alexa wore it is just perfect (as usual:P). And you know, I didn't even know bomber jackets were big this summer! Heh. I like the idea of pairing it with something super feminine to balance the look:) Thanks for the tips, Rowena:)

    PS Hehe....I am so fickle when it comes to my KDrama leading men. My husband just rolls his eyes at me now when I start gushing over someone:D After Train to Busan, I've been watching more of the movies than the TV shows, and just realized that Cha Seung Won's Man On High Heels is on Netflix. Weeeee! And let me know how you like The K2 if you do end up watching it. I didn't continue with Healer, but really want to see something with Ji Chang Wook in it:D I can even look over the fact that YoonA is in it >.<

    Anyhoo, have a great weekend.

  7. Happy Friday, Rowena! :)
    Today is going to be more like summer, then tomorrow much cooler! I am not ready to flip my closets just yet, so I'm relying on layering and slowly adding things like scarves and booties.

  8. I have actually worn tights with shorts recently. I loved your tips. I totally agree that we can wear summer items during Autumn (and even Winter). It is all about layering and finding ways to be warm. I think shorts can look fantastic with leggings and tights...and even with high boots.

    The sandals worn with socks are one of the most adorable things for me! They're perfect for early Autumn, but not so much for late Autumn and early/late Winter when it starts to get really cold.

    Wonderful inspiration!!!

  10. The one that I really plan to get is a bomber jacket! I can't believe how chic it looks and it's crazy because I never even give it a second glance in the past.

  12. I remember doing the tights with shorts trend in the 90s as a child, but I am not certain if I could don it now, lol. I have a bomber jacket that I've not worn in years, so perhaps I will give that another run for wearing. Happy weekend, Rowena. :)

  16. I've never tried shorts and tights together but my sister wears the look really well! :) Even though it's spring here I've been thinking about getting a bomber jacket, they have some lovely ones and it seems like a great layer to add to combat the cooler mornings and evenings!

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  19. These are all great ways to transition. I love wearing tights under shorts with boots. And you are right, some of us are stuck in summer for at least one more month.

  23. Bomber jacket and denim midi skirts are both high on my 'love list' this Autumn! Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's style is always faultless :)

  27. I love bomber and motto jackets! I think they've really slim lined them and they look fabulous. Very sleek! I'm also loving the shoe/sock trend! In certain shoes they look really good.

  28. From these 3 I only wouldn't wear socks with sandals. It's a bit weird according to me. But shorts with tights, and а bomber jacket is very trendy and I like them a lot. I will have in mind these tips, because it's really hard to decide what to wear when mornings and evenings are cold, and it's getting hot during the day.

  29. Totally in love with this post, Rowena, especially that first visual (so chic) and your comfy looking socks with sandals, though I am not too sure I can pull off this look as cool as you *_^

    I totally fall head over heals whenever I see someone rock a cool bomber jacket look, but I have yet to score one for myself, just yet. I tend to look a little bulky whenever I try one out, so I am still on the hunt for one. Yes, Zara is my favourite place to roam around!! haha

    Hope you keep warm as the temperature is dipping soon over there! Have a great week, dear friend.

    With love,
