As we fast approach August and dare I say—the end of summer—we’re starting to slowly think about the invigorating change of season ahead. Yep, fall is just around the corner and my shopping cart is already starting to reflect its arrival—most notably in my dress choices. As I look to invest in some effortless dresses that I can wear right now in the balmy summer heat, I'm also thinking-forward to what frocks will easily transition into fall. 

When shopping for summer-to-fall transitional dresses think about versatile color palettes and bold floral prints that can conveniently be worn in both seasons. Think of details such as puff-sleeves that continue to trend this season and into the next. Look for dress silhouettes that can easily shift into Autumn with the right layers and a great pair of boots.
