Kariella's 2021 Transition Wardrobe Picks

As August nears its end and September peaks its way over the edge into our wardrobes, we're looking at a steady intro into darker, mysterious florals, oversized cardigans, the color 'pumpkin,' and all that one might think of when transitioning from late summer into an early fall.

Naturally, when this happens, just as the leaves change and eventually fall in a smooth progression of the seasons, you'll be needing the same for your wardrobe. Switch out those short shorts, mini skirts, and tube tops with all the early fall essentials that'll help you coast effortlessly into full fledged fall, come September 22nd.

Today, we've compiled a list of our top picks to help you on your way. From 70's-style mini dresses to elegant maxis, graphic tees, and easy breezy denim, you'll have that transition wardrobe well underway in no time!
