It’s Almost Fall But Still Hot in H-Town! Here Are Some Great Pieces for Your Transitional Wardrobe

It’s Almost Fall But Still Hot in H-Town! Here Are Some Great Pieces for Your Transitional Wardrobe

The round-neck blazer from Houston-based label Nour de la Garza

HOUSTON'S HEAT WILL linger a while longer, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't start curating your wardrobe with transitional pieces that will last through the end of summer and into the season ahead. We suggest a few effortless styles you can layer — and classic silhouettes that won't date.


ELEVATED ESSENTIAL This smart take on the striped button-down can be found at Houston's women's contemporary boutique, Kick Pleat. With cuffed long sleeves, a longer hem in back, and a tie detail, getting dressed for work or play need not be boring. $710, www.kickpleat.com

MAKE AN IN-VEST-MENT A comfortable yet very stylish alternative to a chunky knit is a vest. Layer over a crisp white button down and pair it with a midi skirt or wide-leg trousers for an office-appropriate outfit during the week, then spice it up on the weekend and wear it on its own. Shop this cobalt blue mohair vest in River Oaks District at COS. $99, www.cosstores.com

JACKET REQUIRED This round-neck blazer from Houston-based label Nour de la Garza is the perfect example of how to look polished, professional and breezily cool all at the same time, and it comes in the perfect hue. Love this look for early fall. $54 (was $90!), www.nourdelagarza.com

SHINE BRIGHT Light layers and simple, minimal jewelry are meant for spring and summer, while fall invites more weight and thicker, chunkier pieces. This flat-chain 18K-gold-filled bracelet from Houston-based jewelry line, Burdlife, is a timeless style that's making a comeback. $64, www.burdlife.com

MULE IT OVER Mules are hot right now — simple yet striking and versatile. An open-toe mule in a neutral color, especially one with texture, can make an outfit shine. $379 (was $480!), www.tootsies.com/
