fash•ion (fash-uh n) | transitional pieces

When you're able to transition an article of clothing from one season to another, doesn't it feel like you're really get beyond your money's worth?  Ultimately, all pieces would follow your suit as the season change, but realistically it doesn't happen as often as we'd like it to.  I personally think that Spring or Summer dresses are the best transitional pieces because it's so easy to layer in the winter.  The simplest way of changing a Summer dress into Fall?  Just add tights, a sweater or blazer, weather appropriate accessories and voila!  Your dress is now part of a Fall ensemble.

I'm a sucker for stripes and bright colors so I'm loving this dress! I think you transitioned it to fall great. Very versatile.

I 100% agree with you! Dresses are the best transitional pieces. I love wearing my summer dress with black tights and a cardigan to work. Easy peasy! :)

Love your dress and how you toned down the bright stripes with black accessories. Black never fails! :D

I think the navy and orange in that dress make it work for fall.

Oh, I love the bright stripes!! And I think it works perfectly to brighten up a fall wardrobe when you add the darker accessories.

I live in Florida, so I can pretty much wear any of my short sleeved shirts and dresses year round because even in December and January, we're still occasionally getting a 60-ish degree day.
