It's that time of the year where some days it's still superhot, and other days it finally feels like Fall is in the air. Even though we don't mind going to the beach in September, the changing weather can make dressing somewhat of a challenge. But have no fear, our style director, Noria Morales, and our fashion reporter, Allison McNamara, are sharing their transitional dressing tips to tackling the tricky change of seasons.

The transitioning weather has left me nonplussed. For the past couple weeks, I've found myself standing in front of my closet longer then I would like — I don't know what to wear. It's not exactly freezing outside, but I can't pull off bare legs. So what's a girl to do?
Luckily, Net-A-Porter has put together an inspiring selection of transition-friendly items that will help us through this rough patch. Remember, it's all about working layers and finding an amazing pair of boots, much like these amazing Jimmy Choo Heather Patent boots. Check out some of my favorite pieces.
Kate Moss and her crew — daughter Lila Grace and boyfriend Jamie — loaded up the car and headed to who knows where. The important thing is that Kate looked snazzy in a tweed blazer, navy jeans, and moccasin boots. Of course, she didn't leave home without her macho watch and white Hermes Birkin. That thing looks stuffed; I wonder what's in it. The look is quintessential Kate but also a great example of a transitional ensemble.
It looks like the weather is cooling in NYC (already?), but Ashley Olsen kept herself warm in an incognito long black coat. Her choice of black sandals, however, revealed that it's still Summer. The actress stuck to her usual subdued palette by finishing the look with a gray scoop tee, skinny jeans, and of course, a macho watch. To add to her elusiveness, Ash wore black angular sunnies. Transitional style done right.
I've been looking for good examples of transitional outfits, and leave it to Charlize to give us one. If you still want to show off your tan gams come Fall, layers are the answer. This look manages to be both cozy and collected. Sometimes the idea of throwing things on and cinching it all together with smart accessories just works. Charlize's choice of earthy hues does no wrong, either.
Spring merchandise is blooming all over, and I am beyond giddy. I look forward to wearing lots of sherbet hues: purples, oranges, pinks. This Missoni-inspired Zig Zag V-Neck Sweater Dress, size S/M, is great for the transition between Winter and Spring.
The current bidding price is at $11.61, and the auction ends on Wednesday, March 6. Good luck and happy bidding!
Ah, the transition between seasons. It's the only time you have your entire wardrobe to play with. It's not so hot that you can go out in a tank top, but it's not so cold where you need a jumbo parka. The key to dressing for this limbo period is layering.

Ah, the transition between seasons. It's the only time you have your entire wardrobe to play with. It's not so hot that you can go out in a tank top, but it's not so cold where you need a jumbo parka. The key to dressing for this limbo period is layering. Think cardigans, beanies, dresses over sweaters . . . you catch my drift.
