How to Transition a Summer Dress Into Fall

Come October, it's all chunky sweaters, all the time for me, so I try to ride out September by styling early-fall variations on my favorite summer pieces before I pack them away for good. I'm loving all of the Western-prairie style coming off of the runway at fashion week, so I paired this sweet white midi-dress (yes, even after Labor Day) with a wide-brimmed hat, booties, and my trusty denim jacket. On cooler days, I'd swap for taller cowboy boots and add a tartan scarf until the temperatures require tights, which sort of just complicates things in my book.

I have similar plans for my favorite jumpsuits to pile on a scarf and leather biker jacket and style with short booties instead of sandals. The look was perfect for errands and a lunch date with Sean this past Saturday, and it was really feeling like fall. Although I'm sad to see summer go, our schedules were insanely hectic, and I'm welcoming some downtime. Not to mention, fall fashion is just the tops. I love this dress, but I think it's even more fun with a few added layers, compared to worn on its own (pictured below at a fashion event with Global Glam editor-in-chief Christine Philip). What's your vote: easy summer dressing or fall layering?


  1. Such a cute look! Perfect way to transition that dress! I should break out my denim jacket too
