If you’re as thrilled as we are that summer is finally showing signs of fading, you probably already have your eye set on updating your wardrobe for the cooler months. While we don’t have “fall” here, and winter feels more like spring, that doesn’t mean you have to abandon the delicious array of trends that are arriving for Fall/Winter 2019 altogether. In fact, it just takes a bit of style wizardy to start wearing them now, as we start to transition seasons.

A transitional piece is one that can be adapted for both warm or cool climates, like floaty dresses, which are perfect for summer but are extra cute when topped with a chunky cardigan when the weather gets nicer. For those in-between days, you want clothes that are practical and easy to mix and match, that gently nod to the new season rather than running into it head first. To that end, here are six trends that you can buy now and wear later, safe in the knowledge they’ll be staying in fashion for the rest of the season.

1

Boiler Suit

Essentially a ready-made outfit, boiler suits are the jumpsuit’s cooler counterpart, characterized by their loose fit and patch pockets. Give your all-in-one an urban edge by pairing it with box-fresh trainers and a backpack. Then when the weather turns cooler, layer it over a roll-neck top.

Midi Dress

A midi dress is one of the best transitional wardrobe heroes you’ll ever find. Teamed with ankle boots now and knee-highs later, worn solo or with a cardigan later, or suited up with a smart jacket for the office, this is one piece with seriously diverse usage.

Straight-Leg Jeans

Give your denim wardrobe a much-deserved update by investing in a pair of on-trend straight-leg jeans. A retro faded blue wash or creamy hue will mesh with an autumnal color palette – try tucking a fine-knit body top or slub cotton T-shirt into high-waisted jeans.

Plaid Patterns

Old-school checkered plaids are going to be a major fall trend, so get with the program now by finding your perfect top or A-line skirt – one of the season’s key pieces. We love the notion of something a little on the sheer side, which makes it perfect for layering.

Split Skirt

Denim isn’t just about jeans for autumn. The indigo split skirt is having a moment, and it’s the ideal transitional piece if you’re looking for something that offers a bit more coverage than a tweed mini. Keep it casual with trainers and a long-sleeved tee, or nod to the Western trend by teaming with a saddle bag and brown leather ankle boots.

Satin Blouse

A fluid satin blouse is another 70s-inspired piece that will come in very handy for fall, whether you’re styling it with tailoring or your newly-acquired straight-leg jeans. There are two options here: Go totally retro with a pussy-bow, or make it minimal with a chic high neckline.
