Transitional Dresses at Simply Be

We are just about to enter the last month of Summer, but it seems like someone forgot to tell the weather. This weekend has felt decidedly Autumnal, and although I for one am hoping that Summer makes a reappearance as August arrives, I have to say I’m not holding my breath. With that in mind, it seems that a post all about transitional dressing becomes a post about dresses you can definitely be wearing right now. Tropical it ain’t!

Simply Be continues to go from strength to strength when it comes to its dress collection. The brand, which stocks dresses in a great range of sizes that covers the plus size spectrum, has a wonderful variety of styles, and includes labels like Scarlett & Jo, Little Mistress, Joe Browns and Glamorous. If you are looking for a new dress, from a floaty maxi style, to a short, flirty skater style, you will be able to find something at Simply Be.

So, when we talk about transitional dresses, what are we talking about? Transitional dresses can still often be in cotton, but the pastel colours often give way to darker shades or block primary colours. Longer sleeves to suit the cooler days are a good idea, and denim dresses are a real great look that work so well with tough looking ankle boot styles. Florals can still work well, with swing style dresses another look that works well when teamed with an ankle boot rather than a sandal. Bardot dresses still show no signs of disappearing, but for an Autumn look you can add a denim jacket or a leather biker style that will give warmth and coverage, without losing any edge of style.

Here are some of my fave transitional styles that I think will take you from the end of Summer, and will hopefully work well even if we don’t get an Indian Summer, (Although fingers crossed – eh!)

  1. I had not really heard of any of these brands or of a transitional dress. I am all about dresses though. I love how the same dress can go from warm to cool weather with the addition of tights and a sweater.

  2. These all look amazing, I’ve not heard of a transitional dress before now. I’m not a huge dress wearer but with these I could possibly be tempted.

  3. Definitely the off the shoulder is my fave. I love that shoulder baring dresses are fashionable again!

  4. California is so odd when it comes to stylings, given how late it actually is warm out here. Sometimes it’s still 90s weather all the way through October, and then almost jumps to winter weather. We hardly have a thing that would be considered fall.

  5. I love wearing dresses so much! It’ s so easy to wear them in transitional seasons, adding or not accessories such as a shawl, sandals or boots, a jacket or a cardigan to stay warmer!

  6. The weather has been dodgy in these parts of late. While I love the cooler temps, I have to remind myself that it’s summer time not fall. These are lovely dresses to choose from.
