5 Summer Essentials that Work Year Round

5 Summer Essentials that Work Year Round

by Melissa Magsaysay

Gone are the days when that long and flowy floral dress was relegated to summer. Sure, such a breezy piece makes sense for the weather, but with the right styling virtually anything sitting at the front of your closet now (aka those “summer” dresses) can easily transition to be worn into cooler months.

Same thing goes for lightweight jackets and blazers. Outside of a snowstorm, these toppers can certainly double as the perfect layer for fall.

Consider these best selling summer essentials that can effortlessly be worn for fall with pieces you likely already own.

City Safari

Derek Lam Belted Safari Jacket + Ankle Flare Trouser

This 70s inspired jacket is the epitome of chic. Wear it a white or black turtleneck underneath as a warmer layer and and pair with a plaid wool skirt and tall leather boots to amp up the iconic look reminiscent of Ali McGraw in “Love Story.”

Holiday Ready

Rachel Comey Amplus Dress

The color tone is already autumnal, so adding a dark or velvet mule, plus a statement earring, takes this look right into the holiday season.

Luxe Layers

Dima Ayad Two Tone Knit Dress

A beautiful metallic knit makes this dress a go-to for fall and holiday. Wear a dramatic cream colored jacket on top along with some strong gold hoops and the result is rich hues and sumptuous textures for the new season.

High Contrast

Naeem Khan Long Sleeve Cocktail Dress

This statement making black and white knit dress is perfect with a pair of minimal sandals in summer. But come fall, wear this with black tights and boots and a classic black moto jacket for a little edge.

Strong Suit

Veronica Beard Miller Dickey Jacket

Consider this your new go-to blazer. Beautifully cut and in a versatile shade of blue. Take it into fall by wearing a camel colored turtleneck or crew neck sweater underneath and a pair of dark wash jeans. Finish the look with ankle boots and gold curb link jewelry.
