How To Dress For Fall When It’s Still Hot As Hell Out

Sumtun…have you heard of it? We’re right smack in the middle of it. It’s that weird transitional period between summer and fall where “technically” the calendar says it’s autumn, but the weather outside says “LOL girl, please.” Trust me, living in San Diego, I get it. It’s 85 F outside as I write this! So what’s a fashion-loving girl to do when she wants to embrace the new season? Fall transitional outfits, baby. Scroll on for a few of my favorite summer-to-fall-and-then-back-to-summer looks.

This is a classic look I always come back to, right down to the shoes. I love how comfortable it is and how it can be worn pretty much anywhere.

I picked this look for the Taylor Sterling’s of the world who really, really want to wear their combat boots, but can’t quite let go of the summer prairie dresses yet.

When in doubt, layering is always the way to go. I love this classic silk set layered with a soft wool coat.

Easy, breezy, autumnal (get it??). During this transitional weather, mix a oversized shirt dress with skinny jeans for an effortless look.

I personally like to wear shorts until it just isn’t possible anymore, so I love this look of high-waisted shorts layered with a light trench.

Say it with me…Jumpsuits, jumpsuits, jumpsuits! I love a good jumpsuit because it’s so light and breezy (good for hot weather), but doesn’t leave you feeling exposed. Layer it with a cute blazer and you’re set.

  • Orange County, CA here! I wear my uniform of circle skirts with a tucked in shirt pretty much year round. For fall it’s about color for me: rich oranges, yellows, reds and browns. Plaids. A black midi dress with a cropped orange cardigan. Makeup helps too…out comes the dark plum lipstick, black nailpolish, witchy accessories. I’m obsessed with fall, can you tell?

  • I’m in Florida and we still get 90+ degree weather throughout Fall! I can relate and love these outfits. I just need to find materials that breathe 😀
