Huge thanks to Kohl’s and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post

Let’s talk clothes for going from summer to fall! This is the time of year when a lot of you are looking ahead and preparing for the fall, but the weather is in full summer mode. So, I want to share some ideas for what to wear during the transition from summer to fall, and I’m partnering with Kohl’s and ShopStyle Collective to do it!

Kohl’s has so many different types of pieces, from great basics to fun statement pieces. Not to mention, they have some really great items that are crazy, crazy affordable! On top of all of that, Kohl’s makes it convenient to shop by offering in-store and curbside pickup so that you can get your order quickly and conveniently. 

First, I’ll talk through a few things I look for in pieces that can transition from summer to fall. Then, at the end of the blog post I’ll round up a bunch of other summer to fall options that you can try that are also really affordable!

While there are many clothes that you can wear during the transition from summer to fall, one of the easiest characteristics to look for is pieces that have cuts that will keep you cool in the summer but are in colors that lean more towards fall color palettes. That way, the item is practical for warmer weather but has a bit more of a fall vibe. I’ll share a couple of examples!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

First is this effortless v-neck, faux wrap, tie waist dress which is a perfect work option that you can wear in the summer and into the fall. If you happen to live in a warmer climate, you can even wear it through all of the fall.

The colors of the print work in both the summer and in the fall. The short sleeves and shorter length keep you cool in warmer weather. Once the weather cools, you can layer on a cardigan or a black moto jacket. If you want to wear it further into the fall, you can wear additional layers like tights and boots.

On top of that, this dress is really comfortable! The material is stretchy and moves easily with you. And, the faux wrap silhouette with the tie at the waistband is flattering as it helps define your waist while floating straight down from your hips, and the v-neckline elongates your neckline. And, it’s only $21 right now with code SAVE25!!! That price is insane for how good this dress is! This dress comes in 3 really great prints, which you can see HERE. They’re actually all really pretty and can be styled for the transition into the fall with the right pieces! I’m wearing size M.

Another great option for work that you can wear during the summer and into the fall is this print cap sleeve dress. I like the navy geo and olive floral colorways a lot for the fall! You can also try this utility jumpsuit for a fun way to mix things up at work. I’ll share even more options at the end of this post, but I just wanted to highlight a couple more examples!

An example for casual wear is this really fun jumpsuit. With it being sleeveless and having loosely fitting, flowy legs, it will keep you cooler in the summer. As fall approaches, you can easily throw on a denim jacket or a cardigan to layer it up.

This print in particular feels a bit more summery, but I think it’s still a fun piece that you can wear during the transition into the early part of the fall, and the neutral colors help a lot. That said, if you’d like something that makes a little less of a statement, this jumpsuit comes in a couple of other prints as well as solid black and a solid dark green emerald, which would both be great come fall! Not to mention this jumpsuit is SOOOOO COMFORTABLE! It is SO, SO, SOFT, and it’s really, really stretchy! If you’ve ever wished you could just wear pajamas all day while looking put together, this is your jam! And, it’s currently $26, HERE! I wear size M.

Shop the Outfit:
Jumpsuit: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size M)
Shoes: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size 9)
Bag: (similar, similar, similar)
Earrings: (
similar)

Both of these pieces are great examples that work seamlessly through the transition from summer to fall. Plus, they’re both VERY COMFORTABLE, and who doesn’t love pieces that give you both comfort and style?

There are plenty of other pieces that you can easily transition from the summer into the fall, so I’ve rounded up a bunch in the widget below. Some of my favorites are this short sleeve button up, which comes in several colors, this pretty puff sleeve top, and this flutter shoulder top. Scroll through the widget below for more!
