We're midway through September, which can only mean one thing: our favorite fashion season has arrived. With everything from warm drinks to light autumn breezes, fall is the perfect weather to layer up with some cute and versatile transition pieces. That being said, it's easy to throw on a cardigan or sweater over a button-up and call it a day. But we're here to take your summer-to-fall wardrobe to the next level. See our take on five fashion trends ruling both the social media and editorial scene. These J.ING-approved transition styles are guaranteed to elevate your fall look—while you still have time to play around at home.
Bored of regular old cardigans? These bold chunky knits, cropped cuts, colorful embroidery and other standout details will vamp up a cozy fall favorite. Throw one on over any outfit to take it from basic to chic.
Western belt buckles, checkered prints, preppy collars and rugby shirts...let's face it, we're all obsessed with the season's favorite trending style. Inspired by your countryside horse ranch dreams, this fall trendwill have your looking your East-Coast-boarding-school best.
Put a spin on your basics. A hidden (or exposed) zipper detail can add some edge to your look while staying classy. It's an ultra versatile and personal favorite detail of ours—it works with everything from casual joggers and pullovers to snappy blazers and trousers. Want to put a modern twist on your lounge or work uniform? Try adding a zipper. Subtle, but totally cool.
It's a trend that's resurfaced time and time again—from Elizabethan and Victorian eras to the mid-twentieth century, romantic necklines and ruffle tie-front bows have added a romantic flair to any look. This timeless piece works best with neutrals and can be paired with both flouncy skirts and menswear-inspired trousers. No more stuffy collar or boring button-ups—these tie-front details are the perfect touch of class for your work-drobe.
Pantsuits, move out of the way. It's time for the short suit set to shine. One of the best (and most subtle) ways of slowly transitioning your wardrobe into cooler weather is with in-between statement pieces that touch on both seasons: short-sleeved jackets, shorts or mini skirts in tweed or wool, and other combinations of summer and winter elements. Not-quite-warm, not-quite-cool. 100% adorable.
