Transition from summer to fall with these stylish staples.
Down South, you can count on warm days well into October. And while you’ll want to look seasonally appropriate, it’s still far too hot for heavy tweed separates and chunky knits. These seven pieces are perfect for those transitional fall days before the air gets too cool and crisp.

We love that this piece—with no sleeves and in a light color—perfectly straddles the line between a summer and fall staple. We recommend layering of over a sheer fitted pullover and jeans or a silk summer dress that needs an extra layer to transition to fall. Shop a similar sleeveless trench on super sale (we're talking down from $495 to $173) at Neiman Marcus.

The part-linen fabric makes this jacket light enough for late September days down South. We love the soft jersey panels that add just a little bit of softness and more breathability.

A lightweight silk scarf is our favorite fall accessory. This one, in a cool ombre design, seems like it was made just for our ladies to sport all fall long. It comes in three cute colors!
Light Comfy Sweater

Light sweaters may be one of the most versatile pieces you’ll ever own. You can wear it year-round and with almost everything in your closet. We love the little front-tie detail on this sweater that lends a little femininity to the comfy style.

Every woman should invest in a long cardigan (this one is 30” from the shoulder) in a neutral color. We recommend leaving it permanently in your tote as your go-to light fall layer. Toss it over bare shoulders when you’re getting the last wear out of your summer dresses and evening temperatures leave you chilly. This cardigan has cute ruffle details on the back, too!
