5 Pieces To Transition From Summer to Fall

5 Pieces To Transition From Summer to Fall

So we’re half way through September and there’s still no sight of fall, in fact the weather in Tokyo still like’s to believe we’re in that fun summer zone – ha, not cool.


Despite having those rare days where the temperature drops to 22 degrees, it’s still not quite the right time to bust out that full fall wardrobe.

Having lived in Singapore where it’s literally summer all year round, I’ve accumulated WAY more (than I should have) summery pieces that I’m kind of like stuck with…So either I store them away and hope that those Instagram trends come back next year, or save myself the storage hassle and transition them to fall!

And what did I do? I chose the latter, naturally.


So without having to pack away your summer pieces just yet, here are 5 things I’ll be transitioning into fall season!

1. Cover-Ups


Safe to say I’ve been obsessed with cover-ups all through summer this season. It really elevates any look with the littlest effort. Incorporating warmer, neutral tones is a great way to shift your color palette to resonate fall. It also helps to combat those “wear a sweater in the morning, regret it in the afternoon” type bipolar days.

2. Bracelet Bag


Designers are constantly transforming fashion notions to create the new “it” thing and this time it has to be the bangle bag – a unique amalgam of a metal bracelet/bangle on a handbag. What started off from Chloé ‘s Nile bag was quickly adapted by various other brands. This one’s a great bag to bring to fall as you can forgo bejeweling in the colder days to come.

3. Layering Necklaces


What started off with bracelets and bangles, remember #armparty? #armcandy? Well do the same thing however to the neck now. It’s a great time to put those small dainty necklaces you must’ve bought years back with cute pendants to use – start layering your necklaces for an “effortless” look – Just kidding, its take quite a bit of effort to wear all those necklaces!

4. Peep-Toe / Open-Heel Booties


Between seasonal transitions you’re usually stuck with major shoe dilemma – seriously do I keep wearing sandals or pull out my boots?! Well that’s when these “in-between” shoes also known as peep-toe booties make it all better. Still covered but airy to get you through the day comfortably!

5. Text-Tees


I agree, T-shirts are not necessarily anything new and can obviously be worn at any given time. But this season we saw an uproar of slogan tees and quirky texts written on them. This one’s more of a reminder to myself to still grab them from my wardrobe from time-to-time as I’m not the biggest tee lover (more on this on another post, perhaps).

Well these were my five picks to aid your transition to fall with upmost fashion feat – just kidding, it’s not THAT hard!


As my sartorial heart remains forever with fall, I’m not too sad about bidding farewell to another humid, warm and sweaty summer!

    It’s still full-blown summer temperatures here in SE Texas, too. I hate the cold so I am ok with it, but I know those cooler temperatures will start creeping in soon and these are great ways to get ready. Especially on the days that it’s cool in the morning but warm in the afternoon.

    Today is my first cooler day as of recently and I gotta admit that I’m loving it! Since my summer clothes are still accessible, I have quite a few pieces that need to be repurposed until I make it up to the attic to retrieve my fall/winter clothes. You’ve given me some good inspo on how to make them work for the cooler temperatures!

    I simply loved your outfit! It’s simple yet so stylish! It’s a great wear for summers. I’m a big fan of slogan tees. I love how it gives out a message in a fun and bold way. Those layering necklaces and open-heel booties had added the extra charm to this outfit!

    I am not in to fashion very much but I do like to look good. These are great ideas for someone like me who doesn’t always know what to wear.

    This is a really trendy transition outfit from summer to fall. My favorite is the tee and the shoes.

    Fall finally feels like it has arrived here in Maine, USA. I have also taken out my chilly weather clothing, including leggings, capris, and longer tops like tunics and cardigans.

    First of all, can we talk about how amazing your lip color is?!?! I love this time in between where its still kind of warm, and not yet cool. I love your tip about the cover up. Its so great because you can still eek out some use of those summer pieces.

    Hey! Amazing ideas! Fall is my favourite season fashion wise. Here in Switzerland we are having exceptionally nice weather (usually fall is very rainy) but temperatures have dropped and 22 is the max we are getting. Not too bad! I could easily wear all of your suggestions!
