It’s that time of year again. The mornings and evenings are getting cooler, but summer’s heat still lingers during the day. No matter the actual weather, something about the beginning of September has us itching to pull out our knits, booties, and coats. Dressing with light layers, muted tones, and key fall accessories will tide you over until its time to fully transition your closet from warm weather to cold.
Take a look at these 7 blogger outfits to inspire your summer-to-fall style!
WhoWhatWear editor Kristen knows that a blazer is the perfect topper during transitional weather. It provides lightweight coverage that a coat would be too heavy for.
Elifnaz, Belle Melange
Elifnaz’s outfit is perfect for early fall. A muted, long-sleeve floral blouse paired with a denim midi skirt and sneakers will keep you comfortable from morning to evening.
Samantha, Could I Have That?
I love Samantha’s refreshing way of layering two lightweight tops for a little extra coverage.
Julie, Orchid Grey
A good hat is the way to my heart, and with a cool breeze in the air, fall is the best time to break out your hat collection!
Olivia, What Olivia Did
Olivia’s silk burgundy dress is the perfect transition piece; the long sleeves and high neck add slightly more coverage for early fall days.
Swap out your breezy blouses for more structured, heavier ones. Statement sleeves like the ones on Paulien’s top are still on trend for this season!
Mary, Happily Grey
If all else fails, throw a lightweight bomber on it and call it a day!
The sheer trend isn’t new. It’s been around for years, but as we’re in the midst of one of the hottest summers in years, sheer pieces are in the spotlight now more than ever. From minor detailing to more daring looks with fully sheer tops and dresses, take a look at some of the ways our favorite fashion girls are styling sheer pieces to create modern, trendy looks.
Chloe Miles, Chloe Helen Miles
A lacy, sheer top juxtaposed with denim creates the perfect pairing.
Grasie Mercedes, Style Me Grasie
Two trends in one, Grasie wows with a sheer floral applique top paired with denim and sneakers.
Brittany Xavier, Thrifts and Threads
Do date night right with a romantic, sheer blouse like Brittany’s.
Taylor Gardner, Dallas Style Blog
I never knew how to style all the sheer dresses I’ve found and fallen in love with. Thanks to blogger and street style inspiration, I am living for a sheer dress styled over denim jeans or, more daringly, high-waist briefs.
Viktoria Dahlberg, @victoria.dahlberg
For a dramatic nighttime look, try wearing a bodysuit or high-waist briefs under a sheer, lacy dress.
Ellena Galant, Galant Girl
These sheer culottes may just be the pants of my dreams!
Geri Hirsch, Because I’m Addicted
Geri managed to find the perfect sheer skirt to remix all throughout summer. It can also be taken into the cooler months by pairing it with a sweater and boots, as she shows in this outfit.
Leandra Medine, Man Repeller
From the pool to dinner, Leandra’s sheer-dress-over-cutoffs outfit is perfect for an all day summer outing.
As the temperatures start to rise, it’s only natural to hit the beach for some vitamin D and relaxation. Whether you plan on reading by the water or going for a bike ride along the boardwalk, here are a few trendy cover-up options you can wear for any beach occasion.
Any of these outfits is summer-approved and fail-proof for the beach:
Transition from beach day to bonfire with a lightweight sweater. A sweater worn over swimsuit bottoms—as done here—is the perfect look for cozying up next to a bonfire.
A pair of high-waisted shorts is a closet staple for summer. Want to show off your new bathing suit top? Switch out the usual crop top piece for a tankini or bralette bathing suit top.
Without a doubt, a pretty patterned dress is always a go-to option for the beach. They’re easy to take on and off if you need to tan or jump into the water (I’m always tempted to do the latter!).
Nail perfect beach style by throwing on a romper over your bathing suit. The one-piece won’t take up much room in your bag, making it perfect for when you’re on-the-go.
A two-piece separate outfit has everything you need to feel beach-time ready. Top off your outfit with a round handle or straw bag that can hold all of your beach essentials.
Take a style cue from Annabelle Fleur and wear a dress with a plunging neckline to show off a peek of your bathing suit without going overboard.
I typically gravitate towards darker, warmer colors, but the blazing heat of summer has me pulling together any all-white looks that I can. I am loving effortless, breezy fabric for this time of the year. Who has the patience for anything else during the summer? After scouring blogs and Pinterest for inspiration, it looks like I’m not alone in my current white obsession. Take a look at some of my favorite white hot summer looks below!
The Fourth of July is always a great reason to spend time with your loved ones and celebrate your love for good ole ‘Merica.

Up your July 4th style game with a few outfit ideas from your favorite fashion bloggers. With these six easy outfit ideas, you’ll be looking patriotic in no time:
There’s no better way to make a statement on the 4th of July than with a stars-and-stripes bodycon suit that does all the talking. This ensemble works great for celebrating at the beach, so don’t forget to layer on the sunblock!
Red and white stripes are always a go-to pick for celebrating the 4th of July. Steal a page from The Golden Diamonds’s style playbook and pair a crop top with a striped midi skirt. Finish off this look with a star-patterned bag.
