8 Transitional Fall Jackets and Cardigan Looks


When it comes to wardrobe planning, transitional summer-to-fall looks can be tough. Throughout early fall, the temperature seems to shift at a moment’s notice. Before you know it, longer chilly nights turn into brisk days and many of your summer staples are quickly made irrelevant. Luckily, prolonging the life of your summer favorites can often be as simple as adding a few well-placed layers. In preparation for the coming shift in temperatures (and styles) here’s a look at some of the trending transitional fall jackets and cardigan looks for the upcoming season.

 1.) Aztec Wrap Cardigan

Fall Jackets

This totally transitional look from Marilyn’s Closet Blog is spot-on for fall. Her tribal-printed cardigan maintains the playfulness of summer while adding a layer of warmth for breezy evenings. The asymmetrical cut of the top and bohemian styling make this look feel like a loving ode to festival season. Bright pops of red in Marilyn’s hat and saddlebag add just the right amount of punch while welcoming the fall color palette.

2.) Classic Cropped Leather Jacket

Fall Jacket - Leather

This black and white casual look from Boho Chic Cafe proves that wearing white after Labor Day can be incredible chic. Your favorite summer dress gets an instant update by adding black leggings, boots, and an edgy black leather jacket. This two-toned street style look strikes a perfect balance between dressed-down and put-together.

3.) Suede Fringe Jacket

Fall Jacket - Fringe Suede

Vintage-inspired 70s style has made a serious comeback recently, and took center stage in summer fashion blogs and storefronts. This updated look carries on one of our favorite trends from summer straight into fall. Jane from FitFabFunMom styles her striped shirt dress with a fringed suede blazer jacket. Her blue tassel necklace and wide brim hat help establish a structured but easy-going vibe that’s fit for the trendiest of autumnal streets.

4.) Easy Peasy Denim Jacket

Fall Jackets - Short denim jacket

Summer takes us back to a simpler time, where summer style was all about casual edge and keeping comfortable. Beatrice from The Fashion Cuisine helps translate that renegade summer vibe into casual fall wear with a textured denim jacket and subtle stripes. For a perfect balance of hot and cold, she trades her summer shorts for skinny jeans and swaps sandals for espadrilles. Consider this your remedy to beach-weather heartbreak.

5.) Trendy Drop Vest

Fall Jackets - Sleeveless


If you’re not quite ready to put away your arms for the winter, the long vest may be your best option for layering. Linh Niller sports a polished look with her zip-away structured vest and jumpsuit. Her thin strappy heels accentuate the pleating of the pants while the tapering of the vest adds to the modern silhouette. This outfit is the perfect way to hit the town in style without sacrificing comfort.

6.) Blanket Wrap Sweater

Fall Jacket - Wrap

Elif Filyos from Blog and the City rocks the latest fall transitional trend to hit the streets all over the fashionable corners of the world. The blanket wrap sweater (or jacket) unites cold-weather practicality with tasteful textiles. Elif’s fabulous knee-high boots and printed wrap cardigan create a casual look while maintaining feminine details. A matching scarf and black bucket handbag make this look a perfect solution to chilly weather.

7.) Fitted Military Jacket

Fall Jacket - Fitted Military Jacket

This everyday look from The Sweetest Thing combines classic fall staples with metallic details. Tall riding boots pair seamlessly with a fitted canvas military jacket and casual stripes. The jacket’s drawstring waist creates a natural silhouette, even with multiple layers. Polished chain jewelry, a studded bag, and tortoiseshell sunnies keep the look modern and on-trend.

8.) Tan Trench Coat

Fall Jackets - Trench coat

Last but not least, Annabelle Fleur from The Viva Luxury pairs a neutral trench coat with summery whites and ice-cold metallics. Super-reflective sunnies help prolong the last rays of summer sun, while bold silver accessories add cohesion to the look. The lightweight trench and adjustable waist closure make this jacket easy to customize for any transitional weather.

5 Outfits to Rock at Your Next 80s Theme Party


The 80s were a golden era of individuality, marked by voluminous hairstyle, wild color patterns, and plenty of spandex. A number of eighties trends hold a special place in our hearts and occasionally resurface in playful and unexpected ways (fanny packs, acid wash denim, high top sneakers). One major platform for 80s fashion is the dawn of the theme party, where retro brights and bold styling have taken center stage once again. If you’re stressing out about what to wear to an 80’s theme party, have no fear! Check out these top five fun looks that harken back to a brighter time.

 

#1: Teenage Heartthrob

This youthful assortment of colors, metallics, and textures will keep your party look current and fresh. The simple tank top, gold nugget earrings, and acid wash denim cutoff shorts add a touch of modernity, and could easily be worn again. A pair of high-top Chuck Taylors also references past styles while remaining timeless—especially in such a delightful shade of blue. Toss in a heart shaped necklace, neon lipstick, and a neon detail clutch, and you’re ready to rock and roll.

As an homage to the trendy feminine style of Barbie, this look fuses neon brights with metallic accessories. A pair of gold earrings matched perfectly with the gold clam shell clutch while neon hair ties, yellow pumps, and fluorescent nail polish make this outfit perfectly party-ready. A cropped top with its uneven hemline contrasts the refined girly nature of the voluminous chiffon skirt. Last but not least, a reliable bottle of hairspray will get your hairstyle exactly where it needs to be.

Why spend money on a costume you may never wear again, when these perfectly put-together items accomplish the 80s vibe just as well? You may even have a number of these items already, such as the loose cropped sweater or brightly colored clutch. Pair with a chunky gold necklace, a pair of grunge-style boots, and a few complimentary brights, and you’re perfectly 80s!

This outfit pays homage to that delightfully kitschy trend, using a bright animal print clutch, pink pumps, a graphic tee, and neon skinny jeans. Matching pink bangles, a bright shade of lipstick, and horseshoe earrings help pull the look together.
