How to Transition Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall

These versatile pieces will help you navigate the shift in seasons stress-free.

The air is getting crisper, but it’s not cold enough to bring out the parkas and heavy knits just yet. We’ve rounded up these eight fall wardrobe essentials so you don’t have to worry about what to wear on the daily.

1. Slip dress by Zara

Slip dresses continue to be a huge trend this year, and they work perfectly for the in-between season, especially in darker shades. If you’re heading out for the night, throw on a leather jacket and some strappy heels, or keep things minimal with a neutral, oversized sweater and white sneakers. This versatile style from Zara offers a relaxed fit, giving you ample room for movement.

2. Disquette slippers by UGG

Want to keep your toes cozy, but don’t want to bring out the boots just yet? These cute slip-ons by Ugg are your answer. Made with the brand’s signature sheepskin and suede, they are great for outdoor wear, provide lots of cushion for your feet, and come in three shades.

3. Oversized blazer by H&M

An oversized blazer is a fabulous option because it’s roomy (aka perfect for layering), and works for a variety of occasions whether you’re dressing up or staying casual. Pair it with outfits like a neutral dress and flats, your favourite denim and sneakers, or a knee length skirt with boots.

4. Wide straight cargo pants by Uniqlo

Whether you’re going to the office, running errands or enjoying a day off, these super comfy pants are going to become a daily favourite. They check all the right boxes—we’re talking 100 percent cotton that doesn’t irritate your skin, an elastic waistband, large cargo pockets on the sides, and a very on-trend wide cut.

5. Homestretch baby T-shirt by TNA

Trust us when we say this is the kind of essential that goes with everything. A basic white tee is perfect to wear under your cardigans, button-down shirts, blazers, bomber jackets and more. TNA’s version is high quality and we love the stretchy ribbed fit. The possibilities are endless.

6. Ellison natural ballet flats by Steve Madden

Here is a classic that is especially functional for this time of the year. Ballet flats are a wonderful way to transition out of your sandals while still keeping things light for your feet. One of our favourites is this chic two-toned pair by Steve Madden that can function for both business and casual.

7. Pleated pull-on midi skirt by J.Crew

Lightweight and airy, a pleated skirt always looks sophisticated and will be put to great use for both day and night. Pair it with a white button-down shirt and a denim jacket for a chic office look, or throw on a silk camisole and a leather jacket if you’re heading out for a bite. It’s another versatile piece that’s comfortable to move around in, and you can even throw on tights underneath if the temperature starts to drop.

8. Buttoned cardigan by Twik

A button-down sweater is a must-have for those days when you want to cover up but don’t quite need a jacket. It’s a staple that can be thrown over a blouse, a shirt or a dress. We love this ribbed cardigan from Simons, which comes in five beautiful colours as well as in black and beige.
