A sweater vest with lace or crochet trim adds something extra to an outfit. Since it is sleeveless, it can be worn with a tank, shorts and sandals. In the fall, it can be worn over a thin, long sleeve shirt and jeans. The Billabong Laurent Sweater is sheer, white material with a racerback and lace details. The front is open and it can be worn with any neutral tank or form-fitting tee. It costs $46.00 at swell.com and comes in small, medium and large.
Slub-knit dresses with 3/4-sleeves are great for balmy summer nights and cool fall days. In the summer, pair the dress with flip-flops for a date night at the beach. In the fall, layer a cardigan over it and add tights to stay warm. The women’s 3/4-sleeve slub-knit dresses from Old Navy comes in black, a teal color and a raspberry shade. Get it in sizes XS to XXL for $19.50.
A fancy tank is great for nights out and for under blazers at work. Try this Pearly Glow Tank from Velvet to add glamour to any outfit. The burnout-striped jersey is so soft and the bow is pretty. This can be worn with linen shorts in the summer and with slacks and an eggplant blazer in the fall. The tank costs $68.00 and can be found at anthropologie.com.
Mixed fabric Tunic
Tunics are good transitional tops because they look fabulous with jean boyshorts in the summer. In the fall, wear it with jeans and leggings. The rich neutral tones of chocolate and shell in the Short Sleeve Summer Fern Tunic are perfect for fall. Made of 100% viscose, it’s comfortable too. Purchase it for $88.00 at freepeople.com.
These are not the wide frumpy cargo pants from the past. The new cargo pants have a skinny fit and pockets that aren’t huge. Roll them up for the summer and let them down in the fall. These look good with tanks and long sleeve shirts too. The Staring at Stars Tencel Cargo Pant has a tapered fit that looks great with wedge shoes. They come in black or green and cost $58.00 at urbanoutfitters.com. Choose from sizes X-small to large.
