BDB Transitional Dressing

Transitional is a fashion term that gets thrown around a lot, but don't let this polysyllabic adjective trip you up; in order to achieve a closet full of covetable warm and cool climate friendly pieces, all you have to do is check out Though you are most likely already familiar with this site and their incomparable services, we wanted to make sure that none of you, dear readers, missed out on this weekÂ's unbelievable online offerings. Though we always consider BDB our go-to resource for some of the most versatile and chic pieces around, we were floored when we saw these beyond-basic pieces available at ultra-amazing prices that will help you update your wardrobe and take you seamlessly and stylishly into the fall season!The only thing more thrilling than buying a new feminine frock is finding the piece at an amazingly reduced price. We experienced this singular sense of glee when we discovered one such piece, specifically Chaiken's Double Ruffle Dress ($170). Originally priced at over double that number (and well worth every cent), we would rock this gorgeous aubergine number in a few ways that make it the perfect transitional piece. Try pairing it with an open-toed bootie for a warm evening stroll or when the weather begins to chill, layer your favorite tailored boyfriend blazer or biker jacket to add a little bit of edge and coverage to this deliciously draped dress!

Of course, now that you have the perfect party dress, what to wear it with? If we may, we would love to recommend two stellar outerwear options that will not only look great on their own, but further down the line, will make great layering building blocks when it gets downright chilly! Though we never met a cardigan we didn't like, we immediately fell in love with Trina Turk's Bimini Sweater ($69.30). Nothing is chicer than a classic in a deep shade of navy, and the piping on this sweater makes us positively swoon. We can't wait to throw this over a peasant blouse, and when the weather permits, a great coat, like the Ilsa Trench Cape ($250) from Chaiken (at half the price!). This piece combines timeless staple, like the khaki trench, with a directional silhouette that was all over the F/W runways: the cape. This voluminous piece is perfect to throw on over any of your fall essentials, like Current/Elliott's The Slouch Crop Jean ($95.20), and at a price that can't be beat!

Now that you've got your fall foundation, just remember to add on a great statement accessory or two, as this is a foolproof way to add a little interest to any ensemble. Though we like anything from Oliver Peoples, we practically flipped when we saw the flawlessly designed Prentice Sunglasses ($114) at such a reasonable price! Finally, we couldn't resist providing you, dear reader, with a little bit of razzle-dazzle. So we had to include these artisanal Danielle Stevens Earrings ($16) that will give you that luxurious luster in an impeccable and wallet-friendly way. In short: these earrings offer the perfect way be a golden girl sans a glowing tan!
