Transitional Fashion // Summer to Fall

Say goodbye to your whites, linens, and flip-flops and welcome back into your closet your favorite fall pieces.

Football season and cooler weather are here and that means one thing: it's time to transition your style. Say goodbye to your whites, linens, and flip-flops and welcome back into your closet your favorite fall pieces. The cooler weather allows for more layering, thicker textures, and a lot more room to show off your style. In case you need some ideas for this year's fall fashion, we've got you covered from top to bottom.

Sweaters are Key

During the fall months, sweaters rule supreme. A light knit keeps you warm from the crisp Autumn air, while adding texture to your look. The Viyella V-Neck Pullover Sweater is easy to style, can be worn on its own with almost any pant, and its casual yet sleek vibe will leave a lasting impression. We also highly recommend layering your looks with an updated cardigan this season -- it will keep you warm while giving the button-down a new look.

When to wear it: The sweater look is on the more casual side, perfect for a day out on the town or weekend activities.

Grab a Jacket

It might not be winter weather yet, but a jacket should still be one of your go-to's this fall. You don't have to sweat it out in your heaviest outerwear, but you can throw on a light jacket to add dimension to any of your outfits this season. Still worried about getting too hot? Opt for a short-sleeve sport shirt underneath.

When to wear it: You can never go wrong by adding a jacket, and you can always take it off. They are extremely versatile and can be paired with any of your casual or dressed up looks, from the boardroom to the bar.

Man's Best Friend: Hoodies and Flannels

You can't talk about casual fall fashion without mentioning flannels and hoodies. Wearing a hoodie or flannel in a smaller size has a slimming effect and helps you achieve a more put-together look.

When to wear it: Flannels and hoodies are definitely on the casual side of your closet, perfect for lounging around the house or running errands.

Breaking Down The Bottoms

Your fall closet should be stocked with both shorts and pants as the weather transitions. Of course, if you prefer the pant look you can never go wrong with dark denim, khakis, or wool slacks (weather permitting).

When to wear it: Shorts are a great casual option for your outdoor activities when the weather is on the warmer side. Pants should be your go-to for dressier occasions paired with your button-downs, sweaters, and jackets.

Fall Accessories Shoe and Belt

Fall Footwear

Break out your boots from the back of your closet because they are your fall footwear staple. Not only do they keep your feet warm in the crisper months, but boots are also the perfect shoe for an office casual look, a tailgate, or even a dinner date night. Accessorize your outfit with a matching belt and you're dressed for whatever comes your way.

When to wear it: Everywhere.

We'll catch you on gameday, or possibly eating some pumpkin pie. But regardless of which fall activity you're indulging in, you'll be dressed to kill.
