Now & Later: What to Wear Into Fall

Share Tweet Pin

From flip flops and winter coats to rain boots and t-shirts, it’s clear that dressing for the awkward transition between summer and fall is a struggle for many. Personally, my head is running in circles attempting to solve the great debate of jacket vs. sweater. Speaking of debates, how long can I get away with wearing a maxi dress? And when do I have to officially stop wearing sandals? These are just a few questions I ponder when that first chilly (and ugly) day arrives. If you’re in Chicago, that day has already happened and I’m sorry.

But enough debating, to save me (and you) the headache of transitional dressing, I put together some easy looks to wear now and how to style the same item of clothing later–when it REALLY gets cold.

SWEATER: The gray crew neck sweater is a classic. For temps closer to 70, pair it with tailored shorts and sturdy sandals. Slide into jeans, structured loafers, a coat and warm wool hat for later.

Now: Necklace: Icing // Shorts: Scotch & Soda //Sandals: Birkenstock

Later: Jeans: Uniqlo // Shoes: H&M // Hat: H&M // Jacket: Blackfive

SKIRT: The flippy leather skirt is a great material for fall and winter. The wind blocker works well with a graphic t-shirt now and with tights later.

RIPPED JEANS: A more relaxed approach to denim is making waves this season. A nude pump is perfect for warmer weather, but swap to boots when the weather turns.
