The weather has all of us in knots when it comes to fashion. During the day it is unbearably hot but as the sun goes down, there is an apparent nip in the air. This is the time when you can whip out your transitional pieces which will keep you comfortable and cozy no matter the temperature.

Now, when we talk about fall transitional wardrobe pieces, before even talking about the gilets and roll necks, the color palette can't be overlooked. Especially for men, I feel they should maintain a certain distance from bright hues like red, orange, yellow, etc. The best colors to frequent would be greys, rust, beige, black, blue, basically all the darker and muted tones. Your outfit doesn't need to be gloomy and dark, you can play these up by mixing prints and textures as well. We styled this outfit keeping the same theme in mind and while a pair of black boots would have made for a perfect Fall outfit, we refrained for using them to keep the look light and apt for daytime. The denim jacket is just warm enough for the slightly chilly evenings and could easily be taken off to reveal a perfectly casual daytime outfit.

Despite summer sadly coming to an end, the start of the transitional period need not be seen as a negative. After all, the casual and simple summer style eventually begins to get stale and the seasonal shift allows us to introduce creative layering, richer colors and beautifully textured garments into our everyday looks.
