Five Under $50: Summer to Fall Essentials


 Summer dresses are versatile and can be worn into the next season. There are several dresses that would be perfect to transition from summer to fall. But today I am going to focus on midi dresses.

Midi Dress 

Midi dresses are perfect to transition because their length is appropriate for both warm and cooler weather. Also, the length is appropriate for formal and casual events. Midi dresses are also excellent because it was one of those dresses that a lot of women can pull off regardless of their body type. 

How to transition your summer essentials  

The dress I featured today is right for summer because of the romantic feel and the fact that it is short sleeve. Since it is a short sleeve it makes the dress easy to layer. I decided on a denim jacket because it looks good with the sleeveless dress and makes it more casual. When it is cooler you can also wear a leather jacket  The color of the dress also makes it right for autumn. I paired the dress with flats but it would look good with heels or sneakers too. Boots in particular ankle boots would be a perfect fall.


I including the tote bag because it is popular for summer and fall.  I choose neutral colored accessories because it allows you to wear them all year long because those colors go with everything. And of course to make your look even cooler and stylish apply a nice nail polish in fall color shade.


Just because summer is about to end it does mean you have to put away all of your summer items yet. Your summer dresses, flats, jackets, and sneakers can still be worn in fall. There are plenty of ways you can mix these items with fall essentials until the weather is finally cool. So mix the summer items on sale or what you have in your closet with your fall fashion. Below are a few places you can shop this summer and I have updated my Current Faves Page and see other items on sale.
