Emma Watson's Trendy Flats Are the Key to Transitioning Summer Dresses to Fall

If every August and September, you think to yourself, "I've mentally moved on from summer, but the Earth hasn't, so what do I wear?" you're not alone. It's an undeniably awkward time of year when it comes to outfits. Luckily, Emma Watson has one clever outfit solution for us that's perfect for making the jump from summer to fall.

While vacationing in Venice over the weekend, Watson started with something we all wear on vacation. Yes, that would be a Reformation dress. But to make her puff-sleeve midi dress look both summer and fall appropriate, she added a pair of loafers. To be exact, she wore a pair of black Prada logo loafers that have been It shoes since 2020, and she paired them with a pair of crew socks to make the look even more fall-friendly. 

The moral of the story is that all you need to do to keep wearing your summery dresses into fall (until it's too cold to do so) is pair them with loafers, which continue to be a major flat-shoe trend. It's a late-summer-early-fall outfit trend worth remembering. Keep scrolling to shop the look.
