Transitional dressing is one of those topics that's spoken about in fashion, but not always decoded in full. Like, what exactly constitutes a "transitional outfit"? Should a look be centered around Summer essentials or heavier Fall pieces? Are there key components and formulas to know? Furthermore, how does one know when one has nailed a transitional outfit? Who approves these looks? Is there a between-season fairy godmother we can tap to confirm?!

In my opinion, the short answer is: there are no rules when it comes to transitional dressing! Anything goes! Do you! However, there are a few key styling tips that are helpful for every woman to master, from the jackets and sweaters that are best for layering over dresses to the types of boots that effortlessly extend the life of summery separates and textured extras that help make lightweight pieces feel Fall appropriate.

So, to prepare you for the in-between season, ahead, I'm breaking down eight transitional outfits that are A) perfect for Summer-to-Fall weather, B) fresh and fun, and C) inspired by some of my favorite fashion influencers. Exciting, yeah?! To make the deal even sweeter, I've shopped out each transitional outfit with similar styles that range from affordable finds to investment-worthy pieces. You've got this.
