3/4 sleeve or long sleeve dresses are a great way to go from summer to fall. Just like wearing shorts or a skirt and throwing over a classic button front shirt or jean jacket for layering, a long sleeve transitional dress is perfectly appropriate for both warm and cooler temps.

When it comes to picking transitional dresses, a safe bet is a great basic shirt dress for the most versatility. You could wear it open over these straight leg jeans, belt it with a designer statement belt, add a beautiful scarf, wear these cute leopard loafers, booties, boots or even the cult classic 42Gold platform sneakers. With so many ways to wear it, this dress would be a great investment piece or this Amazon one for a more budget friendly option.

In Texas, it is hot until mid-October but I still want to feel like fall. So, I like to transition my brighter more colorful summer wardrobe into darker hues and neutrals as we approach late August and September. It just gives me that fall feel even though it’s still 90 degrees outside.

5. DENIM DRESSES
When in doubt, DENIM!! Denim is basically the first thing that comes to mind when I think of fall style, so of course denim dresses make the top of our list when it comes to transitional dresses!! Denim dresses can easily be layered for nearly any season. Take a sleeveless denim dress, pair it with a cardigan and a simple white sneaker or dial it up with a leather jacket, and suede over-the-knee boots!
With deep hues and bold fall colors being really on-trend this upcoming season, this is the perfect time to play with color. Pick a red dahlia bootie or a burgandy handbag – both trending colors for fall 2023.

Most of what we have selected today are dresses the we can wear now in the heat and then later as we get into real fall like temps. Utilize layering, more fall style shoes like boots or booties and your transitional dresses will fit right in with the changing seasons!
