Right now we’re basking in the summer sunshine, but fall is right around the corner. That doesn’t mean though that you need to bag up all of your favorite summer pieces and store them away until next summer.

In this style guide, I’m going to show you some summer to fall transition outfits. We’ll be looking at how you can modify your cute summer clothes and make it fall-appropriate.

Cute summer to fall outfits

1. Add a sweater

The first tip is to replace your summer t-shirt or shirt with a sweater, or just layer a sweater over the top. This allows you to still enjoy your summer maxi skirt in the fall and yet stay warm at the same time.

Tuck in your sweater at the front to help define your waist and add some more shape to your look.

You can still wear your summer dresses in the fall; all you have to do is add a pair of tights. Now you have the same cute dress, and no chilly legs. Throw on your favorite blazer over the dress, and you are ready to go.
