Cardigan: Red Dress Boutique
Rompers are by far one of the quickest and most comfortable pieces of the summer. As we transition into fall, these can stick around by layering warmer pieces over. Try a fuzzy cardigan like this one and knee socks if needed. Not only is this warmer than a strapless romper, it is just as comfortable. Alternately, go for an edgy look with distressed tights, a leather jacket and combat boots. The possibilities are endless.
Rather than turn summer pieces to fall, just jump ahead to fall fashion. Many people enjoy cozy cardigans and flannels and, if it’s cool outside, go for it. This cream and tan look is perfect for fall. The simple top makes the flannel stand out and the pants match perfectly, but not in a silly way. Finish the look off with sneakers and you’re out the door.

Sometimes mid-October really isn’t that cold and long sleeves will do it. Sweater dresses that are off-the-shoulder are the perfect mix between a casual, summer look and a warm, fall one. If they are more neutral, try throwing over a fun printed cardigan or vest, like one that is longer than the dress. Finish the casual look with flats or booties.

When in doubt, add knee socks. If your legs tend to get chilly, knee socks are the perfect mix between tights and bare legs. When it’s not too cold, skip the tights and opt for knee socks. Try this monochromatic black look of the classic crop top and skater skirt layered with a cardigan. Finish the look with matching combat boots. Don’t forget to take a selfie.
Dress and sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
Here’s another monochromatic black look, just a little fancier. Instead of knee socks, stay warmer with a pair of opaque black tights under a body con dress. Now is the perfect time to take out those heeled booties for fall outfits. The leather jacket makes the look more edgy while the sunglasses make it a little more casual.

Oftentimes, those fun summer dresses can stick around for a bit with the help of warm cardigans. Try opting for a patterned dress with a cardigan of a contrasting color. Long dresses tend to keep you warmer, so if it’s chilly, go for one that’s knee-length or longer. This time, skip the tights and opt for knee-high boots. If you want to, wear knee socks underneath for a unique and slightly warmer look.
