As we approach August and, dare I say it, the end of summer, I'm starting to think about the change of season ahead. Fall is just around the corner, and my shopping cart is already starting to reflect its arrival—most notably in my choice of dresses. While I look to invest in effortless dresses I can wear now in the balmy summer heat, I'm also thinking about dresses that will easily transition into fall.
When shopping for summer-to-fall transitional dresses, consider versatile color palettes and bold prints that can be worn in both seasons. Look for dress silhouettes that shift easily into autumn with the right layers and a great pair of boots.
Below, we're sharing stylish and noteworthy summer dresses that are also perfect for fall, making the transition easy and seamless.
