    27 Stylish Pieces From Target That Can Make The Transition From Summer To Fall

    Styles to help you effortlessly move from your strawberry acai refreshers to your pumpkin spice lattes.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A utility-inspired shacket perfect for those days where the mornings are hot and the nights are cool. This great piece, which is made from recycled cotton, features a collared neckline, patch pockets, and single cuff sleeves.

    2. A denim jacket, because, quite frankly, no other wardrobe staple transitions you between seasons quite like this one. Made from lightweight fabric, this one will ensure you don’t feel restricted in these last few weeks of warmth.

    3. A knit dress so you don’t have to start wearing pants just yet. The fabric is already soft and cozy, and the simple design allows you to easily throw on your favorite sweater or even a pair of tights once fall starts to make itself known

    4. A versatile and super soft graphic tee you can pair with pants, skirts, or shorts. When it comes to transitioning between seasons, you’ll be happy to have such a versatile piece — plus, that earthy green is giving major early fall vibes.

    5. A pair of high-rise, medium-wash jeans that will seamlessly fit with both your summer and fall wardrobes. Thanks to its stretchy, breathable fabric, you won’t overheat when the sun shows up out of nowhere.

    6. Some anywhere ballet flats with a fun, cut-out design for the day when you’re done wearing sandals but not ready to switch over to boots yet. Enjoy the pointed toe, slip-on design, and comfortable fit.

    7. A square backpack just big enough to hold an emergency sweater without weighing you down. With five gorgeous colors to choose from (think: stripes for fall and bright colors for summer) this bag is sure to be your new favorite!

    8. An A-line, pleated mini skirt so you can order your first PSL in style (without overheating!). The high-rise silhouette makes it perfect for pairing with your favorite cropped sweater.

    9. A pair of opaque tights that won’t rip before you wear them with your Halloween costume. These classic black tights are perfect for prolonging the wear of your favorite summer dresses and skirts into the cooler months — plus, mine have lasted more than a few seasons so you shouldn't have to be repurchasing another pair after only a few wears.

    10. A lightweight, open-front cardigan with front patch pockets, rib-knit cuffs, and an easy throw-on fit. Keep this versatile piece in your bag and be ready for wherever the weather takes you in the next few months.

    11. A sleeveless, knit dress to serve as a great layering piece in truly any season. With a crew neckline, a pullover fit, and a soft, cotton design, you won’t want to take this off until Christmas!

    12. A pair of high-rise biker shorts so you can channel your inner Princess Diana as you frolic through apple orchards. These bad boys even feature a UPF 50+ rating, making them perfect for the days while the sun is still blazing.

    13. A wide-brim boater hat that will protect your skin from the sun even on cloudy days. The natural woven detail and neutral shades transform this common summer style into one that you’ll wear all autumn long.

    14. A French terry, drawstring hoodie with acid-wash detailing you'll find yourself throwing on over every outfit from now until puffer jacket season. Enjoy the ribbed hemline, kangaroo pockets, and dropped shoulders.

    15. A lightweight, long-sleeve shirt you can wear under a sweater or over a swimsuit. The ventilating design and moisture-wicking fabric create enhanced breathability while the ultra-soft material and cute thumb holes make it cozy enough for colder days.

    16. A pair of pointed mules that will look equally as good with a sundress as they will with jeans and a sweater. Reviewers claim these are comfortable enough for all-day wear — which makes them a total winner in my book.

    17. A pair of woven cargo pants so you can feel your best no matter the weather. Not only are they moisture wicking and UPF 50+, which makes them perfect for late summer days, but their four-way stretch fabric will keep you comfy and cozy once the sun starts to set.

    18. A domed-shaped backpack made of a soft, cotton blend fabric *so* cute you'll wish you could cuddle up with it. With an outer zip compartment, a front accessory pocket, and two side pockets, this bag can fit all of your beach necessities AND all of your back-to-school things.

    19. A pair of stylish cowboy boots with memory foam cushioning that will look great with anything — from summer dresses and mini skirts to denim jeans and midi silhouettes.

    20. A pair of flared yoga pants I personally plan to be living in all autumn long. I love how these are high-waisted and crafted from a soft, stretchy fabric that's lightweight enough to keep me cool on the days when my weather app is being noncommittal.

    21. A faux leather anorak jacket that's chic, lightweight, and totally cool. This coat simply screams early fall thanks to its flap pockets, waist tie belt, and textured fabric.

    22. A collared, polo sweater for the days when you want both cozy AND breathable comfort. The open-work, pointelle design keeps it lightweight (while adding super cute detail) while the 100% cotton fabric keeps you warm.

    23. A pair of memory foam sneakers with an almond toe so you can transition away from sandals and back into closed-toe shoes. The colorblock design of these makes them super fun, while still being neutral enough to match any outfit in your wardrobe.

    24. Or a pair of classic ankle boots reviewers swear are beyond comfortable. Not only are they waterproof (helloooo, fall showers!) but their neutral colors make them perfect for matching with a wide variety of different looks — meaning you won’t have to wait long to wear them!

    25. A pair of go-with-anything, oval sunglasses that block 99% of UV light. As the weather starts to cool and the days get shorter, you will be glad to have a pair of sunnies that protect your eyes while still matching your favorite seasonal outfits.

    26. A lightweight crop top with a V-neckline and flouncy, long sleeves so versatile you'll be wearing it all season (and all next season) long. Pair it with your favorite jeans, a mini skirt, or even cargo pants — the options are truly endless.

    27. And an easy, breezy T-shirt dress made with 100% cotton. Add some sandals and a pair of sunnies or throw on booties and a sweater to keep warm. Oh, and did we mention it has pockets?! Score!
