As summer starts to slowly come to a finish, we can’t help but hold on to the dresses, sandals and sunlight that is out past 5PM. We know that fall is slowly around the corner so we’ve narrowed down some of our favorite transitional pieces to get you from one season to the next.
A wrap dress should always be a go-to no matter the season, as it’s flattering on all body types and it’s a timeless style. The Farrah wrap dress doesn’t weigh you down and is made with incredibly soft eco-friendly LENZING™ ECOVERO™, Viscose fibers that are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources.

Leggings so soft you will never want to take them off. A bamboo legging that has just the right amount of stretch and is lightweight and breathable. This is the perfect legging to pair with a longer shirt or throw on over a crop top. We love that these are made with bamboo fibers that allows for comfort in any temperature, and absorbs and evaporates humidity better than any other fabric. Bamboo is the most sustainable and versatile resource on the planet, let’s hope we start to see more products produced with bamboo.
Nothing says transitional weather like a crew sweatshirt. Pair this back with a pair of denim shorts and you are ready for fall. If you are still itching to keep summer alive, the marigold yellow color is the way to go. Ginewusa is the only Native American-owned denim line and they use meticulously sourced materials to create all of their products.
A high-rise cropped wide leg pant made in eco-denim fabric, say no more. We love how transitional a pair of denim is especially when it’s a cropped denim. Whimsy + Row’s denim is made with 100% Certified Organic Cotton and uses a natural process that reduces chemical dosage and uses recycled water. Whimsy + Row believe that it’s not just about what a product is made of, but the process in which it’s made that will help save the environment.

A Softwear t-shirt is a t-shirt that you can live in. It’s made with a sustainably produced yarn that is made in the USA. The fibers are compostable and biodegradable plus it’s pilling-resistant, and when we say it’s soft we mean it. Softwear is committed to using non-toxic dyes and to ethical manufacturing. It’s time to stop buying a t-shirt to wear a few times and ditch it - let’s start investing in t-shirts that we can wear year-round.
If you are looking to add some character to a simple and transitional outfit, jewelry is the way to go. This safiri charm necklace can be worn as is or layered. It’s perfect to pair with solid color tops and dresses, plus it’s ethically made with 24K gold plated brass using traditional techniques.
A t-shirt dress is perfect for throwing a jacket over it, or adding a pair of boots when the temperatures dip too low for sandals. This is a dress that is not only versatile, but is also made to last in your closet. It’s made from 100% organic, Texas-grown cotton.
