I am really ready to embrace all things fall, but with the temperatures still high I’m looking for ways to transition my look without bundling up in heavy layers. One of my favorite ways to do this is with transitional plaids in lighter fabrics that will work for late summer, Labor Day weekend, and beyond!
One of my most worn pieces this summer is this plaid dress from Maxwell & Geraldine, which is as comfortable as a nightgown and currently 30% through tomorrow night! (Tuesday 8/23!) The rich colors remind me of Ralph Lauren at a mountain lodge and will work well through the end of the season and well into fall. Pair with neutral accessories in tan or white plus a classic denim jacket for chilly nights, or even a chunky aran cardigan in navy. Late summer bliss!
I’ve rounded up other transitional plaids that will work throughout August and into autumn below.
- I love this relaxed checked shirtdress for mountain getaways paired with camel suede sandals now and booties later.
- I just bought this lightweight barn jacket in a tan check and love the idea of popping it over a chunky cotton sweater, shorts and hunter boots.
- This black and white plaid tweed minidress would look great with ballet flats now, or boots and tights later.
- I love the beautiful silhouette of this checked shirtdress for luncheons or a day spent wine tasting.
- This black and white tweed plaid also comes in a darling cropped pea coat, which would look great over a white tank and cropped denim well into fall.
- This light blue blazer is such a great 4 season plaid, just switch up what you’re wearing underneath to make it work for the changing seasons.
- Dip a toe into autumn tones with this breezy linen button down or this navy and red peasant top, both of which will look great with white chino shorts now, and denim later.
- I love the idea of this dress paired with a cream belt and cream heels.
- A blue plaid really works so well summer-to-fall and this linen maxi skirt can be thrown over a white bathing suit now, but will look fab with a chunky cream fisherman sweater later!
- Love this cheeky little black and white plaid cardigan (on sale!). Pair with high-waisted shorts or throw over this minidress if you bought it this summer, or layered under a gray blazer and denim this fall.
- This lightweight jacket is crazy expensive, but I just had to share for inspiration because it’s so fabulous!
