Do you have a favorite Fall Transitional outfit? So far this is my favorite Fall transitional outfit… in case you can’t tell by the blog post title and by the photos haha. As much as I love the effortless style of Summer fashion, I do enjoy a good transitional outfit. They’re the kind of outfits I always wanted to wear but are too awkward. Transitional looks are usually the awkward pairings where they don’t always work in extreme weather.
And by awkward pairings, let’s use a sleeveless sweater as an example – it’s sleeveless so you think it’s great for Summer, but it is made out of sweater material so you’ll end up getting too hot. But it doesn’t quite work for Winter either (unless you layer). Does that make sense? But for some odd reason, I love this kind of clothing!
The Best Time To Wear This
Fall is usually the perfect time for a good awkward piece of clothing (that sounds soo weird, doesn’t it?). The in-between weather is great for them. The temperature is just comfortable enough that you can almost wear anything you’d like to wear.
I honestly think this outfit is great for that in-between weather. And if you wear each piece individually, you can create an outfit that can be great for Summer or Fall.
About My Favorite Transitional Outfit
The Tie Front Shirt
So this shirt is pretty much amazing. Actually any Madewell shirt is amazing (if you haven’t tried them, you should and you’ll immediately know why). The fit is always perfect. They have a slightly oversized style but you never look like you’re swimming in them. It fits true to size. I’m wearing a size small.
What I love about this shirt is that it is lightweight. So if you do want to wear it on warmer days, you can. It would look so good with shorts or a denim mini skirt. On cold days, you can easily layer with a cardigan without feeling bulky. Plus, the tie-front stays knotted. Which I like because that means hassle-free when you want to maintain that look.
Wide-Leg Cropped Pants
I probably say this everytime I wear wide-leg pants, but I love wide-leg pants! These pants are great because:
- They’re stripes… Stripes are pretty much amazing
- The button fly is such a chic detail
- Wide-leg pants always make the butt look so good
- They’re high-waisted
- Fits true to size.
The cropped style makes it perfect for a transitional outfit. But you can also wear it for warmer days, by pairing it with a sleeveless bodysuit, tank top, or a cropped top. For colder days, I recommend replacing the mules with ankle boots or over the knee boots. Fun fact, I love wearing suede over the knee boots because they can easily be layered underneath pants (aka extra warmth too!).
So there ya go! This is my favorite transitional Fall outfit so far!
