How to Transition a Summer Dress Into Fall, Part II

How to Transition a Summer Dress Into Fall

Last week I wrote that I thought we could get away with a few more weeks of warm weather, and I wore the summer dress to prove it. But sixty-degree temperatures this week are proving me wrong - and they made the second part of this post on transitioning a summer dress to fall even more timely! The key? Layering over your summer dress. For my layers, I chose two easy, on-trend pieces for fall: a chambray shirt and an army jacket.

My friend LeiAnn and I joke about the fashion term "pre-fall", and how we basically see it as adding tights and a sweater to your summer dress (like this, this). What are your favorite tricks for transitioning your summer clothes to cooler weather?

  1. So perfect! I never thought of layering my chambray on top of a dress, but I totally am giving it a shot!

    1. Now that it is just a little cooler, I have been wearing my chambray shirts like jackets :)

  2. I love to layer (and that jacket is fantastic!) This weekend was a bit cooler than I anticipated so my only effort at adapting was a too-large sweatshirt of Matt's (lol fashion fail.) xo

  4. I love how you layered the chambray over a dress! I did that today with a top! Love how you added the army jacket too but you still look like you're ready for fall when the jacket comes off! Stripes are super in this fall, good call there with the summer dress.

  5. I can't believe fall is among us again and we are talking layers! I love that the chambray plays such a subtle role in this outfit.
