We’re getting to that point in summer where it might not be money well spend to invest in summer items anymore but you can’t quite yet wear your new transitional fall items either. The most frustrating time of the year for style lovers.

Now, I’m not saying I want to immediately start wearing whatever I buy — I would rather wait to introduce my newly curated style bits when they can make an impression, a personal debutant ball for my wardrobe. But still. I don’t want to wait too long either. I fell in love with these items and now I just want to flaunt them. So what’s the next best thing? Making a post with all the fall items I will be flaunting coming season.

Here are the 5 transitional fall items to add to your wardrobe right now & flaunt later:

// THE WHITE SHIRT

The white shirt is a classic that should not be missing in your wardrobe, whatever season it is. It’s a classic item that will turn your casual outfit to an office appropriate look or make your short denim shorts look classier. Honestly, nothing beats a crisp white shirt.

If a white shirt is too basic for you, you can also play around with different fabrics or fits. I personally like an oversized, boyfriend fit but there are enough more fitted shirts. You can go for a long white shirt that could turn into a smart dress next spring {or for now!}. Or go for a version with ruffles that you can wear with a pair of chic palazzo trousers. Whatever you choose, think of the fit and fabric will match your personal style.

In this outfit I’m wearing a white shirt by & Other Stories* that I bought to replace the one I had from Zara. It’s an oversized fit and a thicker fabric. I also would love to add a silk version later on. I absolutely love the fits from Equipment but these days you can also find more reasonable priced silk shirts at H&M or & Other Stories.

// BOOTS

I honestly can’t wait to start wearing boots again. To me they’re the ultimate transitional fall items. There is just something instantly cool about a pair of boots. In this outfit I’m wearing my secondhand Isabel Marant Lazio boots that were on my July favorites list. I love the look of wedge boots. They make you look a lot taller than you actually are.

Another pair of boots I’ve been wearing to death are my Chloé Susanna boots. I was so lucky to win a Farfetch contest back in the day which allowed me to buy them and I can’t imagine my life without them. It’s definitely a pair worth to invest in. For fall I’m going to invest in the & Other Stories booties* bellow with the gold studs. I tried them on in stores a couple of weeks ago and now they’re not leaving my mind.

// JEANS

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is a quest every woman wants to check off their to do list as quick as possible. It’s a hellish process that I don’t wish upon anyone. For the longest time I would just pick up a pair of affordable jeans that fitted and be done with it. But now that I’ve got a taste of the real deal, I can’t really go back.

That doesn’t mean you have to shell out loads of cash for a good pair — in this outfit I’m wearing Cheap Monday high spray jeans* that are under 100 euros. But investing in a good pair of jeans pays off. Not only will you feel great, it’s an item you can get a lot of wear out of. Denim jeans are part of the transitional fall items you want to add to your wardrobe.

// FALL BAG

Why not indulge into a new bag for fall? Trading in your summery straw bag for a leather and suede bag to transition into the cozy season. Go for a classic black or spice it up with burgundy and dark brown hues. If you’re not sure what to get, check out this blog post on how to define if a bag is worth the investment.

// ACCESSORIES

The last things you put on when putting together an outfit and the last on the list: the accessories. Nothing can transition your wardrobe better into the new season as accessories can. They’re low investment pieces that can make a great impact — just look how I took a simple LBD from day to night with the right accessories. These transitional fall items can range from adding a new, cool pair of sunglasses — why not wear them during fall? — to dainty jewelry or trying out if you’re a hat person.

In this outfit I’m wearing my Catwalk Junkie heart-shaped sunglasses that I’ve been wearing all summer. I can see myself wearing these babies to shield my eyes from the late summer september sun.
