Layer Up: Bring New Fall Favorites To Your Summer Wardrobe

Transitional dressing is so easy.
Time moves more slowly in the summer — there are long, languid afternoons of picnics, extended happy hours, and plenty of time in the pool — but before you know it, fall will be here. It’s already peeking in, saying hello on cool mornings and breezy nights. How do you dress for an impending chill? Light layers (including UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down) are key for taking your summer duds directly into fall.

Low-key mornings with little to no agenda are the best — a cup of coffee and a seat with the sunrise are all you need to savor the first rays of the day. Brace for that early morning chill by topping your outfit with a classic Ultra Light Down jacket. It layers easily over your summer tees, so you can keep relaxing as the sun slowly rises. For lighter coverage on a milder day, a Compact Ultra Light Down vest or jacket adds warmth and looks put together (no marshmallow body here!).

Things will warm up, but you certainly don’t have to. Prep for a day of urban exploration with slim shorts or a skirt topped with a tee. In case of summer squalls, it’s best to be prepared, so pack an Ultra Light Down vest — it packs into its own pocket, so it’s easy to throw in your bag and go.

End the perfect late-summer day with a sip of rosé and a sunset stroll before turning in — or heading into the night. Dress your best — we love flowy skirts and slim-cut jeans on the town — and take along a light layer or two for the way home. Classic or compact, an Ultra Light Down vest acts as an elegant outer shell.
