Ten Great Transitional Pieces

We’re about to move into that ambiguous territory of between-season styling when say, a sundress looks wrong, but it’s too soon for wool pants. When the weather is just slightly crisp you need a jacket that’s light enough to look appropriate in early fall, but heavy enough to actually do something. This cool cotton quilted jacket mimics a vintage army liner (but with handy pockets!), is perfect over a tee, and would even work as a toasty layer under a parka deep into winter.

I was just thinking that I need a new pair of No. 6 New School wedge clogs in Palomino (my old trashed ones are chocolate brown, which I still love, but it’s time for something new). They are exactly what I want to wear right now as is, and later with my favorite socks.

A thin classic cashmere pullover is a must, full stop, and this one comes in about 75 million great shades from classic light and dark heather grays to neon fuchsia.

Off-white cords are the perfect choice post-Labor Day — still light with an air of back-to-schoolness. So good with white tees (here’s my new favorite) and those No. 6 clogs or loafers.

Emerson Fry’s cute short-sleeved jacket is a coat before you really need a coat, and works over long sleeved anything, and later maybe a denim jacket.

This crisp shirtdress is just such a pretty shade of blue, and works now with bare legs and later over tights with boots.

Yup, I am including my favorite Everlane rubber ankle boots yet again. They are the perfect proportion and work with almost anything. Just bought a fresh pair and plan on wearing them with everything now through spring, rain or shine.

It’s getting to be silk blouse season again, and this one has a nice peasant shape, while still looking completely polished.

Vince’s ink blue slip skirt can slide so easily into fall with a change of shoes and maybe tights and that cashmere sweater.

I love my Levi’s faded black trucker jacket so much and can’t wait to rock it again soon with blue or black jeans and a great pair of boots like these.
