Fall Transition Top Roundup

When I asked for feedback about what you all want to see this month, I had lots of requests for fall transition tops we can wear when it’s still warm in September and October.

I get it, even here in Philly, it sometimes doesn’t cool down until half-way through the fall season, but we still want to look seasonally appropriate. I’m so glad to see a lot of these tops in the stores right now, so I did a quick roundup for you, but first I’ll share some more details on this transitional look.

Evereve Floral Mesh Top (S) // Edwin Ryder Bootcut Jeans (29) // Seychelles Heels (8) // Tory Burch Miller Hobo // Kendra Scott Ryder Hoops

This top is a perfect example of the type of top you can start wearing now, and then wear it into fall for as long as it stays warm. I love the elbow length sleeves with a bell cuff detail, and you can wear it on or off the shoulder.

While this isn’t an autumnal color palette, which is one of the top fall trends I mentioned in my Fall Fashion Trend Report earlier this week, the mix of mushroom, plum, and black definitely has autumn overtones.

I paired this top with full-length bootcut jeans and a pair of chunky wooden platform sandals for a fall date night or girls’ night out look.

These jeans run a bit small; I sized up to the 29, and they’re snug in the waist, but I like how they hold in all the fluff.

If you’re looking for a classic bootcut with finished hems and no distressing in a medium indigo wash, these are a great choice, although they’re definitely pricey. I’m planning a post on denim trends, and I’ll find some other options at different price points.

I’m also planning a post on transition shoes, and these Seychelles Wood Heels will definitely be included. They’re perfect for pairing with lightweight tops and jeans, or even shorts and dresses, now and later.

I love the mix of suede and leather, and the wood platform sole give them a fun retro vibe. The straps are soft against the foot, and the padded footbed makes them very comfortable to walk in.

I promised a transitional top roundup, and I swear, it’s coming! I just wanted to give you all the details on this look first.

I also want to give a big shout out to my very patient husband, who’s been pinch- hitting while Alison is out of town. He used to take all of my blog pictures, but we’re kind of out of practice, so I really appreciate him taking the time out of his busy work schedule to help me out. There are only so many mirror selfies I can look at!

I tried to find tops at a variety of price points, but if there are any other retailers you’d like me to include in future roundups, please let me know.

  1. Transitioning into the next season can be a challenge for sure, depending on the weather. You look really cute in the post outfit. Great look. I just haven’t embraced the bell jeans. I’m shorter and I don’t want to have to wear heels all the time. They look best with heels. I love the sandals you have on. So perfect for the outfit. Tell Paul he did a great job on the photos.

  2. Are those shoes comfortable to walk in or just something you put on to go out to eat?
    I really like the flared jean style currently trending. They make your legs look long. A pair is on my list for fall clothing. I just haven’t been able to get in the mood with the past heat wave.

  3. Please let Paul know we appreciate him for taking your pictures.
    I can vouch for the Amazon sweater vest. I ordered the light green one after your sweater vest post and I wore it today and immediately started getting compliments. It is soft and fits true to size. The Nordstrom BP white vest arrived today but I haven’t tried it on yet. I am excited about fall fashion this year.
