Well, we have officially reached the most awkward time of year for fashion lovers everywhere; the transition from Summer to Fall weather. The mornings leave us cold and uncomfortable, while the afternoons have us feeling hot and yet again, uncomfortable. This battle between temperatures has us scratching our heads in the morning and asking the most vital question of all… “what should I wear”? Don’t become stumped, throwing all your clothes on the floor in frustration, or miss out on that morning coffee because you’re already running late. Instead, see how this deep blue floral skirt from the new fall collection can serve as the perfect transition piece. This piece is a high waisted, handmade maxi skirt sold exclusively at Essère Atelier. The floral pattern and dark neutral colors featured on the fabric are great for those wishing to keep a pop of summer in their outfit while still following the latest fall trends. Since Florence is mainly a walking city it’s all too easy to work up a sweat by the time you reach your destination. A light and flowy viscose material proves perfect for walking from place to place on the cobblestone streets. However this garment isn’t exclusively linked to Florence, it also makes for a great travel piece, as it’s easy to pack and pair with many different climates. Of course, you still need a top to wear, so pairing this beautiful piece with a cute chunky sweater like the one pictured above (also sold at Essère) works as a fashionable yet functional statement for the in-between weather. A pro tip we would recommend would be wearing a light tank top under the sweater so if it gets warmer later in the day you can wear the sweater around your waist or over your shoulders as an added accessory. With a stylish and comfortable transition piece like this floral maxi skirt, there’s no excuse not to be ready for the upcoming days between summer and fall weather.
