Yahoo Style

Transitioning your summer look does not have to be complicated or expensive. Even though fall is fast approaching, there is no need for a full-out wardrobe reset just yet. Instead of closeting your favorite flirty summer frocks for the year, impart freshness to last season’s looks by adding some easy layers p for an instant style update.

You can seamlessly transition your look by throwing on an edgy moto jacket or layering a turtleneck underneath your favorite summer dresses. If you are in need of some outfit inspiration, look no further. Click through to shop eight plus-size dresses and the transitional pieces to take you from summer to fall!
