How to Transition your Summer Clothes into Fall Clothes

How to Transition your Summer Clothes into Fall Clothes

By Jenna Avila, Nectar Clothing 

We all know that fall is right around the corner when the pumpkin spice latte is back on the Starbucks menu, the giant pumpkin-shaped Mickey Mouse is up in Disneyland and cozy knit sweaters are taking over the store racks.

When September hits the calendars, we are more than ready to put on that chunky knit sweaters and sit by a warm fire, but that is rarely the case living in Southern California. The cool crisp fall breeze is never on time. So for us Cali girls, we have to ease into transitioning our summer clothes into fall. Here we have styled four statement summer outfits that we know every girl wears during the summer that can easily be styled into ready to wear fall.  So get ready to get inspired with these four flat lays.

High-Waisted Jean Shorts

High-waisted jean shorts are a summer staple and can effortlessly be transitioned into a fall outfit by adding a light knit pullover sweater and a felt hat that will keep your head nice and cozy. Adding warm fall colors to jean shorts will give the shorts more of a fall vibe. For colder fall days you can throw on some black tights or add some color to your outfit with cranberry-colored tights to go under your jean shorts.

Layer Up

Were taking it back to the ’90s with layering our summer slip tanks with a plain white tee. Adding a plain white tee or a graphic tee if your feeling edgy is a simple tweak to transition your summer tank into a fall tank. Layering T-shirts with dresses, tanks and jumpers is a major trend right now. Practically all the “A-listers” are rocking this trend and we're loving it.


Fall is all about accessorizing an outfit, whether it’s adding some arm candy or wearing a cross-body purse to make the outfit complete. We have styled an off the shoulder long-sleeve romper with a cross-body purse and booties. Switching up a short-sleeve romper for a long-sleeve romper is an instant upgrade to a perfect fall outfit.
