Now that we’ve entered into August, we know one thing for sure: with a new season on the horizon, it’s finally time to start getting our transitional wardrobes in order. Sure, the outside temps might not scream “fall” — but take heart dear reader, autumn really is just around the corner. And even if the weather might not reflect the upcoming seasonal change just yet, at least our closets can.
Transitional dressing can be a bit of a tricky business. While the mornings might be cooling down to more fall-friendly temps, the afternoons can still hike their way up to pretty heated summer highs. And don’t even get us started on the unpredictability of seasonal showers. So, how do you properly revamp your wardrobe for summer-to-fall styling? Our seasonal secret is none other than a dress. While dresses are popular during the summer months, the right dress style can just as easily be worn throughout the fall, too — especially with the wide array of maxi dresses, sweater dress styles, shirt dresses, and a number of other slips that are great for layering and creating a breezy, autumnal ensemble.
We have been spending a lot of our time stocking up on dresses lately, and fortunately our shopping addiction has led us to find some pretty adorable, transitional dresses that are great for filling your summer-to-fall wardrobe with — and under $100, no less. To save you time and money, we rounded up a few of our favorite options below. You don’t have to sacrifice style when you’re spending less cash: these dresses prove it.
