No matter where in the world you are located, transitioning summer pieces and trends into your fall wardrobe can be a challenge. Arguably one of the biggest trends of the season, off-the-shoulder tops, is perfect for transitioning into the cooler months. By choosing a darker color palette or a popular autumn print, off-the-shoulder tops can easily be paired with something a little warmer to help shift into fall. Another great way to stay warm as the year goes on is with a cold-shoulder top or one-shoulder blouse. The longer sleeve length keeps arms toasty while the neckline stays playful.

Here in the south, fall doesn’t really start until late October, but those crisp mornings definitely make you think twice when getting dress. When transitioning a one-shoulder top, like this Fashionista, the easiest way to go from summer to fall is to retire those cut-off shorts and replace them with the distressed skinny jeans that have been in your drawer all summer long. Even though this Fashionista chose to tuck in her blouse and add a belt. The rips and snags in her rag & bone jeans keeps the outfit from appearing too polished, while her belt-matching gold and brown sandals keep the look fun and feminine. Even though sunglasses are normally seen as a summer accessory, these Prada sunglasses give this Fashionista a cool girl vibe. Here is a much more affordable pair that will still leave you looking chic as the temperatures drop.

You don’t need to completely say goodbye to your summer wardrobe. You can easily make summer pieces more fall appropriate by pairing them with darker colored jeans or a jacket.
