September is here, and the fall season is almost upon us! There is so much to look forward to about the fall season. To celebrate, I’ve curated 40+ outfit ideas for the summer to fall transition for this month’s lookbook. These outfit ideas include timeless, classic, and elevated looks for all the different events and occasions that will fill your schedule this season. Transitional seasons can be known to throw us for a loop when it comes to the weather, so that’s why I’ve put together several different outfits to help us dress in style, no matter what comes up!
The pieces incorporated throughout this lookbook were selected because they can be styled in countless different ways. Including pieces that can go the distance of the season was intentional because my hope is that even if you just add one new item to your fall wardrobe, that item will become a staple in your closet. So, let’s get to styling!
