Bloggers Agree This Is The Perfect Transitional Print

Step aside, candy stripes.

share with your friends
The weather has already begun to transition into fall and, even though you may still be on summer vacation, it’s time to start thinking about transitioning your closet, too. In these last few weeks before we go back to our respective lives (read: school, work, misery, suffering) there are several trends that you can incorporate into your closet that straddle the styles of both summer and fall. 

One print we’ve seen all over the blogosphere lately is polka dots. For some, the spotted pattern might be reserved for ironic ‘50s dress-up parties, but hear us out: despite all the ornate animal motifs of recent weeks, candy stripes dominated the summer – but you can’t wear a pattern that’s synonymous with sunshine and sea when the temperature is falling faster than the imminent rain. 

It looks like everyone in the fashion set agrees that a polka dot is the perfect way to inject some fun, carefree vibes into your end-of-summer look book, and to get your fall fashion off to a flying start. Besides, no one said you have to wear a fit-and-flare, sweetheart-neckline polka dot midi dress. How about a tie-front blouse or a sleek culotte jumpsuit for a sharp 2017 update. 

Try a two-piece co-ord for a standout look, finished off with a block-colored mule or wrap sandal while the sun is still shining. Wear a dotted slip dress with sneakers in August and layer in your favorite graphic tee for September. Make a major statement by mixing up your patterns: rock a striped shirt with your polka dot pants before the season turns, and then switch in some moody florals to reflect the weather later this year. 

If we can’t convince you to sport a spotty statement look, we’re certain that these fashionistas will! Get inspired and then scroll down to shop our selection of polka dot pieces to transition your closet into fall:
