His + Hers: Transitional Pieces to Take you From Summer to Fall

Mike and I teamed up with Nordstrom to share some summer to fall transitional looks. Fall is just around the corner, so now’s a good time to start thinking about and shopping for pieces that will help transition your wardrobe. This is also that tricky time where stores are switching inventory and you’re thinking about cooler weather, but the temps outside aren’t really feeling it yet. I know for us, I’m ready for fall over here, but we have consecutive weeks of 80-90 degree weather. The best thing to do – shop for pieces that can work now and work later! Nordstrom currently has so many great pieces to help you transition your wardrobe, like this lightweight jacket or these loafers and this tee or this jacket. Read on to find out what our top 3 pieces to buy for him and her to help you transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.

His Transitional Pieces

  1. Tees
  2. Lightweight jackets
  3. Denim

Tee shirts are a great transitional piece for men. They’re easy to layer and you don’t necessarily have to buy anything new in order to achieve the look. Wear the tees you’ve been wearing all summer and simply add a lightweight jacket like Mike did with this Topshop bomber jacket.

Lightweight jackets are a guys best friend. Think bombers, windbreakers, utility, or denim jackets. They’re easy to throw on for those cool summer nights, but also will transition seamlessly to fall. Simply add a few layers and you have one piece that will work for both seasons.

Fall is all about denim and when I say denim, I mean anything denim. Chambray shirts, jeans, denim jackets – all must-haves and great to help transition your summer looks to fall. By simply adding the right accessories and switching up your color scheme (light to dark), denim is a great way to take existing pieces to help transition your wardrobe.

BTW – if you’re looking for slim fit, quality tees for your guys, AG makes amazing tee shirts.

3 must have transitional pieces

Drape front trench styledHer Transitional Pieces

  1. Sweaters
  2. Lightweight Jackets
  3. Loafers

Sweaters are one of the easiest ways to transition a look from summer to fall. If it’s still warm out, think about pairing them with denim cutoffs and sandals. You’re still cool enough, but you’re incorporating more fall styles into your looks.

Lightweight jackets are your go-to for transitioning outfits from summer to fall. Think utility, bomber, drape front trench, denim, and moto. I know once the end of August and beginning of September hit, I want to start investing in fall pieces rather than continually buying for summer. To help with that, you can start incorporating those fall pieces into your summer looks. Jackets are a great way to do this!

I wouldn’t normally think loafers are a transitional piece, but the popularity of mules make them perfect for summer to fall wear. It’s still warm, so you don’t want to go with too much coverage, which makes the mule the perfect in-between shoe. Depending on the style and color, they also give your outfit a more fall feel.
