The Season's 5 Most Versatile Transition Pieces

The Season's 5 Most Versatile Transition Pieces

by Melissa Magsaysay

While a heat wave still lays heavy on most of the country, fall (or at least longing for it) will be here before we know it. Layers, versatile dresses, light coats and perhaps even a sweater or three are the items you should be eyeing to stock up on for the new season.

Pieces that can be shopped now, worn now and styled to also wear later are truly the sartorial saviors that make getting dressed each day easy and still plenty chic.

Here are the 5 most essential items that make transitioning to the new season stylish and totally effortless.

The New Foundation Piece

Nicholas the Label Side Gathered Skirt

You may have seen how the leopard skirt has become the new jean this summer. Women are wearing it with t-shirts, cropped sweaters and sweatshirts as a lightweight and dressier alternative to jean shorts or jeans. It’s cemented the midi-length skirt as a go-to foundation piece. This side gathered version can be paired with all of the above plus a denim jacket, slouchy sweater and tall boots for cooler days. For now, wear it with flat sandals or a heeled mule and the matching blouse.

The Perfect Topper

RtA Jack V Point Jacket

Is it a shirt? Or is it a jacket? Does it matter when a jacket looks this cool? The V point hem creates shape at the waist and the saturated overdyed shade of black makes it appear as polished as a blazer. Pair it over gym clothes post-workout/pre-brunch or with classic trousers for a work-ready look.

The One Piece Wonder

Apiece Apart Azore Jumpsuit

They call it one and done for a reason and this gorgeous jumpsuit is no exception in easy-chic. Wear this with a fitted turtleneck underneath and a pair of booties for cooler climates. While it’s still warm, pair it with minimal slide sandals and large gold hoops

The Statement Top

Jonathan Simkhai Silk Leopard Button Top

You know those pieces that you can put on and just feel done? This is that piece. The gorgeous golden hue and perfectly relaxed silhouette can play in just about any setting you find yourself. Tuck this into fitted jeans for everyday or wear with a black pencil skirt for when the occasion calls for something more dressy.

The Timeless Trench

By Malene Birger Hazena Coat

Like the little black dress, the trenchcoat is a part of the sartorial canon of must-have wardrobe pieces. This gorgeous green color is an update to traditional beige and makes any outfit, even something basic, really stand out.
