Summer to Fall Transition
With multiple dresses and jumpsuits to choose from, including those in our CAxLZ collection, let Connected Apparel help you go from Summer sass to Fall class!
Fall doesn't mean putting away all of your Summer dresses and jumpsuits!
Saying goodbye to Summer is always sad, but that just means Fall is coming!
And there is something so satisfying about the swift transition into colder weather, earthy tones, and layering. Some would argue that Fall is the best season, especially when it is filled with so many fun fashion opportunities. Contrary to popular belief, Fall doesn’t mean putting away all of your Summer dresses! Transitional dressing just means pulling out your sweaters and boots to add on top. The transition from Summer to Fall fashion isn’t as hard as you might initially think. But if you need some guidance, we put together some ideas on how to wear your favorite Summer dresses this Fall!
Midi & maxi dresses are the perfect length
When it comes to learning how to style summer dresses for fall, it’s important to start with staple pieces. Lightweight midi and maxi dresses are the ultimate Summer dress staple, but can also transition seamlessly into the perfect Fall dresses with a few simple styling tricks. By filling your wardrobe with midis and maxis, you’ll make the transition from Summer to Fall as easy as ever! Just remember, sandals in the summer, and booties in the Fall.
Neutral colors are the perfect canvas
Neutral colored dresses are the perfect pieces to have in your wardrobe for transitional dressing. They can easily be worn from Summer and into Fall. And if you haven’t already heard, the term “neutral color” has expanded beyond black, white, grey and brown! Even if it is a floral pattern, neutral patterns create a Fall vibe, especially if you add a jacket and boots to warm you up!
Layering is your secret weapon
Wondering how to wear a Summer dress in the fall? LAYERING. Depending on where you live, sometimes the days are still warm but the nights are cold. So, start your day like Leanna does and put together an outfit that includes a cardigan or shrug. That way, you can seamlessly take your outfit from day-to-night without having to stop at home for an extra layer!
Jumpsuits will keep you moving
Jumpsuits are good in the Summer, but they are also GREAT in the Fall. For a comfortable Fall outfit that you can easily take from day-to-night, simply throw on a jumpsuit. As the temperature dips, grab your favorite jacket. No need for tights or boots!
Mix & match CAxLZ classic separates
Our new CAxLZ Classics Collection that we created in collaboration with Lawrence Zarian features staple separates that can be worn year round! This collection was made with the intention of every piece being able to be worn together… and separately. Create a full outfit with all of your favorite CAxLZ Classics pieces! Or pick one or two of your favorites and build an outfit from there with other pieces in your wardrobe.Wear our Christine bronze metallic straight leg pants with a Milena black tank top and Doris mesh cardigan. Dress our Bianca leopard print cardigan and Debbie black joggers down with white sneakers or dress the outfit up with a pair of heels. Wear our Foxy tunic with our Sheri palazzo pants or with jeans and booties.
However you choose to mix-and-match our CAxLZ Classics Collections, you’ll be feeling AND looking confident and beautiful.
Knee length dresses transition seamlessly
While most would not think knee length dresses are Fall appropriate, there are simple ways to make your Summer knee length dress transition into the next season. And we all know the easiest way to transition summer dresses to fall is with the right accessories! If you go bare-legged, a shawl is a great way to keep your shoulders covered, especially for a special occasion. Or, like most other Summer dresses you wear in the Fall, you can add some tights. Knee high boots are also a great option when considering wearing your knee length dresses in Fall.
The key to having an easy transition from Summer to Fall is to fill your wardrobe with pieces that can be used for both seasons with just a few simple tweaks.
These tweaks can also be applied for wearing Summer dresses in the Winter as well!
The Pre-Fall Collection is made up of closet essentials that will make your life easy when transitioning your style with the seasons. Neutrals are no longer “bland” or “boring,” you can stand out in neutrals by incorporating fun patterns, bold accessories, or tactile textures.
