My Favorite Summer to Fall Transition Piece

I can’t believe this is the last week of August already. Where did summer go? Before we know it, pumpkin spice will be taking over and the leaves with be changing but right now it’s still summer and it’s still pretty warm here in New York during the day but the nights are starting to get that crisp cool feel in the air. It’s a sure sign summer is saying it’s farewell and fall it’s making it’s way in.

Favorite Fall Outfit Must Have // The Krystal Diaries

Cardigans are my favorite summer to fall outfit piece. No longer can I leave the house in sleeveless shirts, dresses or shorts without a backup to keep me warm when the night time hits. I love cardigans because they are so easy to walk around with during the day and throw when the temps dip. In the fall I can layer them over any outfit and wear it all day long.

These are some of the ones I currently have my eye on.

I love shopping for cardigans. Cardigans are my favorite fall to summer transitional piece. Cardigans win over boots any day. I’m always a little chilly this time of year and I walk around with a cardigan all day long just in case. 

I have a feeling today might be our last 90-degree day in NY so I am currently stocking up on cardigans in every style and shade I can find. I always get so much use out of them from now all through the fall. Since I work in a business casual setting, cardigans are super easy to dress up, down, or even throw over a not so businessy top and instantly look polished.

Here are some more cardigans I want to stock up on before fall is in full swing.

What’s your favorite summer to fall transition piece you need in your wardrobe?

    I love cardigans for fall too! They are so easy to toss on and they really keep you warm. That maroon one above is soooo pretty and I don’t have a red one yet… I’m in NY too and can’t wait for fall. We live in the best state for the leaves!

    Cardigans are awesome. Sometimes the days change so much, so a piece that is easily taken off or put back on is a must have in my fall wardrobe.

    I think boots and booties are perfect for transitioning! You can wear boots with a cute summer dress for those days when the weather can’t decide what season it is yet so they’re perfect!

    Cardigans are my fave also. So easy to pair up with different pieces, and great all year round (the AC in my office can get pretty cold at times & I usually have a cardi on hand). Love your picks.

    I wear cardigans year-round with a chilly office to go to. I love the ones from the jcrew outlet and stock up whenever I see a new color!

    I literally live in long sweater in the fall. I can’t believe it’s almost here either. I am looking forward to the fall but not the winter. Very cute options you picked.

    Cardigans are always easy to style. I love wearing tank tops underneath to make it easier to transition from cool to warm throughout the day.

    Ooooh cardigans vs. boots is a hard battle but I love a good cardigan too. Especially when it’s not THAAAAT cold just yet so I can wear them with shorts and flip flops. Love the ones you have listed here!

    I live for cardigans! They are so great as added pops of color, to keep me warm in a restaurant, and more 🙂
