If you’re like most, transitioning from the carefree days of summer to the regimen filled fall can be tough. Even tougher? Navigating the fashion trend hop between seasons. If you’re not quite ready to embrace the styles showing up on the rack, take a break and relax into the classics for a while.

When the familiar has run its course, begin to pair your essentials with select trends like bow detailing or a plaid cape to ease into fall’s fashion frontier.
