It’s that time of year when no one really knows what to wear. It feels like half of our closet is still summery, and the other half is ready for crispy fall leaves and chai lattes. Basically, it’s time for transitional wardrobes. You know, when you can get away with wearing something light and flirty and something substantial to keep you cozy. To keep your style going strong now that it’s transition time, here are four must-have items to welcome into your wardrobe.

Classic and timeless, you can wear this over a basic tee or blouse, or even thick sweaters. What’s more, it’s easy to style up or down, so you can wear it as your day to evening piece.

A good pair of booties will never disappoint. For one thing, they’re incredibly practical and keep your feet warm and dry. Plus, they just go well with jeans, dresses and skirts. If you style them right, you could even get away with wearing them with your lounge wear.

Leather skirt

Leather skirts just feel a bit more substantial, don’t they? And when the weather feels nippy, pair them with some tights or leggings for some added warmth.

Graphic tee

Graphic tees aren’t exactly fall and winter items. But when the temperature drops, they do look great under an otherwise-boring cardigan or blazer. What’s more, the right tee will pull your entire outfit together, making it look like you put way more effort into your look than you actually did.

If you want to deal with conflict in your life a little bit better, lean into it, rather than avoid it. Now, that doesn’t mean you have to be a drama queen and look for conflict. Instead, it’s all about approaching conflict with grace.
