30 Transitional Outfit Ideas for Every Day This September
Basic alert: Autumn is our favorite. We love our cozy sweaters, moto jackets and velvet dresses, but we don't really love how we already wore out our go-to looks last year. In the spirit of a fresh season, we got to thinking about brand-new ways to wear our favorite September pieces. So sit back, relax and let these super-stylish ladies inspire you with 30 days’ worth of outfits.
Jean Jacket + Slip Dress + Slides
It might be fall in our heart, but unfortunately Mother Nature hasn't exactly gotten the memo yet. Bridge the gap between summer's lingering heat and the desire to break out your new fall wardrobe by pairing a light slip dress with a cool denim jacket and furry slides, like Coterie member Monroe Steele.
Oversize Button-Down + Loose Shorts + White Sandals
Real talk: Shorts can feel really difficult to pull off if you're no longer a teenager. But flowy pairs that could almost masquerade as skirts aren't just comfy; they're flattering, too.
Simple Tank + Skinny Jeans + Red Bag
News flash: Red is the hottest color of the season. Start with a small statement.
Concert T-Shirt + Work Trousers + Casual Slides
Just because you originally bought them for the office doesn't mean your tailored pants can't come out on the weekends. Keep it breezy and comfortable with a soft concert tee and flat sandals.
Dark Wash Denim + Black Heels
'Tis the season for all things denim, especially if those things come in a classic dark rinse. Let your deep blue jeans steal all the focus by keeping all accessories minimal and black.
White Button-Down + Sequin Skirt + Sneakers
To hell with the “rules.” Of course you can wear sequins during the day! Just be sure to keep all elements of your look simple in unfussy fabrics like cotton, chambray or linen.
Shell Sweater + Pleated Maxi + Pointy-Toe Pumps
So, you're bored to pieces with your summer work wardrobe but not quite ready to break out your pantsuits just yet? Meet your new office uniform: a '50s-inspired shell, classic midi skirt and pointy-toe pumps. You're welcome.
Leather Jacket + Button-Down Shirt + Paper-Bag Pants
This über-fun waist style will be popping up all over the place this autumn, so hop on the trend early and solidify your status as the fashionista of your group.
Mini Tent Dress + Colorful Booties
One of the coolest footwear trends of 2018 is bold solid-colored ankle boots. And one of the coolest ways to wear them is with an ultra-girly dress complete with ruffles, puffy sleeves and a bow at the neckline.
Burnt Orange Top + Plaid Skirt + Gingham Shoes
Who says you can't rock gingham through fall? The trick is to wear it in small doses—kitten heels are just the right amount—and pair it with cool-weather styles like plaid and trendy burnt orange.
Loose Mini Dress + Billowy Trousers
We all have that one frock that makes us wonder, "Is this too short on me?" but here's a handy dandy trick to making it feel significantly more wearable: Layer it over a pair of flowy pants and voilà! A cool color-blocked outfit is born.
White Blouse + Snakeskin Pants + White Pants
This unexpected animal print surprised us as one of the most popular materials for fall. Give it a moment to shine by keeping the rest of your look neutral. In other words, check your love of pattern mixing at the door.
Blazer + Midi Dress + Pumps
It's not quite jacket weather yet but, by George, we're ready to break out our motos, bombers and trenches! Get your outerwear fix by belting a blazer over a dress for work.
Turtleneck + Ruffled One-Shoulder Top + Jeans + Flats
Don’t stow away your beloved off-the-shoulder top just yet. Wear it over a thin turtleneck for a cold-weather look that’s just as stylish.
Long-Sleeve Blouse + Long Vest + Wide-Leg Pants
One of the best pieces of fashion advice we've ever heard is to always add a third piece. In the case of Coterie member Olivia Jeanette's latest look that meant topping things off with a trench-inspired vest that we're falling head over heels for.
Sweater Dress + Jeans + Heeled Loafers
If you’re wary about trying the dress-over-pants trend, opt for a long sweater instead. Layering one over jeans feels more natural but has the same cool look.
