A 5'3 Perspective

How To Transition Your Summer Dresses Into Fall


I’m always excited to pile on the layers and bring back my jackets and chunky knit sweaters as the cooler weather rolls in, but putting away my summer dresses is a little upsetting. This Fall cleaning ritual gave me an idea – let’s transition some of our favourite pieces to be a little less season specific! Here’s my take on Summer dresses, for Fall.ellepottsie summer styleThis lightweight denim Urban Outfitters dress is such an easy piece to throw on before heading out to enjoy the warm weather. The bare legs, sunglasses, bright bags and open-toe wedges just scream Summer!

Add a pair of tights, closed-toe booties, a scarf and military jacket and can instantly turn this teeny dress into a cozy Fall outfit. Add MediaellepottsieDress: Urban Outfitters / Boots: Jeffrey Campbell / Jacket: Artizia (similar) / Scarf: Michael Kors Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

When transitioning pieces between seasons, try to play with current trends. My focus with this outfit was to subtly mix patterns while paying homage to the military inspired look. Remember to layer, not only for style, but also to stay warm in the morning and cool off around noon, Fall weather is so unpredictable!

Today I’m linking up with Toronto Shopaholic for her The Way We Wear series. The theme this week is transition season style, as you might have guessed, if you are looking for Fall fashion inspiration from real ladies, I highly recommend checking it out or searching #TheWayWeWear on social media.

Have a lovely Fall day friends!

  1. Love the transition outfit – that dress is awesome and I love how you played up the “toughness” of the acid wash with a military style jacket and your chunky boots.

  2. Super cute! My goal this year is to transition as many summer dresses into fall and winter as possible!
