Outfits For Late Summer You’re Going To Love

This is the time of year when we are in limbo. Much of the country is still in a heat wave, while some are starting to experience a slight chill in the air. How has this year gone by so quickly?!? Today, I’m styling FOUR outfits for late summer that you can also wear this fall.

Striped Ruffle Cap Sleeve V Neck Blouse Top (Large) || Slim-Fit Cropped Tapered Leg Pant – Light Tan – (size 10) || Quilted Crossbody Bag || Matisse Sandals – Sold Out – (More Here)

I love this striped v-neck blouse, and I’ve worn it multiple times this summer. It looks great with chinos, but it also looks great with jeans and shorts. To wear this in the “outfits for late summer” category, I would add a cardigan and lightweight jacket in the mornings and evenings when it gets more relaxed.

This quilted crossbody is for those wanting a pop of color without spending a fortune! This cute crossbody is a great size and comes in lots of colors. I own it in black and sands also. I love the tassel detail, which looks very similar to YSL bags.

These light tan chino pants fit well and are a great neutral. They will go with pretty much everything, so you should get your money’s worth out of them.

I LOVE this shade of green! Look how it pops against the dark-wash jeans.

There isn’t anything I don’t love about this sweater tank. The straps are wide, so you don’t have to worry about your bra straps showing which is a nice plus. The pointelle design is pretty, and if you are worried about it being see-through, wear a nude bra or camisole.

Adding the stretch denim jacket (my favorite) is an easy way to move this look into the outfits for late summer category.

This leather tote by AllSaints is gorgeous, and I love the size. The tan color is sold out, but it is still available in black. I bought a smaller AllSaints black bag, and I love the smaller size. It is the perfect size crossbody, and the leather feels so soft! The smaller bag is still available in this tan color.

This is my kind of outfit. It doesn’t touch my tummy and is cute as a button.

I wasn’t sure I would like this top, but the Swiss dots and the details on the yoke won me over. The flowy top is lightweight and perfect for hot summer days. I love that it has sleeves that cover my upper arm, which many women my age prefer.

Here is a better photo of the details on the yoke.

And, here is the look from behind.

These jeans aren’t quite as bright blue as they appear here. The jeans are relaxed and slightly baggy, and I love that they are a pull-on style. They are sized small, medium, large, etc., and I purchased a large. However, they are too loose, so I should have bought a medium instead.

I’m loving all shades of brown for fall. This is unusual for me, but you’ll see lots of browns on the blog before long.

This knit spaghetti strap tank is also lighter in the photos than in person. It is more of a tan/beige, and it is a great neutral. I love this tank, and I’ll wear it year-round. I never take tanks out of my closet when changing seasons since they can be worn under cardigans, sweaters, and jackets for fall and winter.

These are the same jeans as the ones above but in Pecan Brown. They are also too large on me, so I reordered a medium to see if that size is better. Those will be arriving tomorrow, so I’ll send one of them back. I’m wild about this color, it is unusual, and I can’t wait to style it for fall.

I will wear these jeans with boots this fall, but I wore them with a pair of leather light natural block heel pumps for now. I have these pumps in black also, and I love the fit, style, and stability of the block heels.

So, which of the FOUR outfits for late summer is your favorite?

  11. Always enjoy your post, they are so helpful for staying up on fashion. Since I am turning fifty in a couple weeks. Especially enjoy your reading your bible verses. Have a blessed day!

  12. Christina Finley says:

    The wide leg, baggy jeans are my faves. Probably with the green knit top. ☺️

  13. LOVE your suggestions for flat shoes! We ladies who are limited to flats often only see ugly clunky shoes. I have a wedding coming up and am going to try on a few of your suggestions. Thanks Tania!

  14. I love the look of the denim jacket with the sweater vests. I’m inspired!

    1. Woohoo! That is always my goal!

  15. I like the fourth outfit the best! Especially the pants!

  16. Woohoo….you are styling in all of these late summer outfits.
    Good for you. I live in a very rural area so most of my clothes are online orders. It’s great to get an idea of the size from you,
    Barbara Broeckelman

    1. I prefer online orders since it is a long drive for me to go to the stores.

  17. Debbie Gatlin says:

    Love your weekend getaway. Where did you find your black jumper from? I ordered one that you were showing but can not remember the name. It did not work for me so I am still looking. Thank you:)

    1. This one is the SPANX Air Essentials. I’ve styled a LOT of jumpsuits, but this one is by far the nicest. I’m wearing a large.

  18. Nancy Steinke says:

    I love all the transitional clothes, especially the ruffled blue striped sleeveless top. I shy away from baggy pants because I am only 5’2″ and am short legged. But they look great on you.

  19. Love the pink Barbie purse!!!

    1. It is a great way to participate in the Barbiecore trend!

  20. Tania,
    Love the green vest!
    Just received a striped navy one from kohls today!

  21. I’m ordering the bright pink purse! 👛 Great way to add some Barbie vibe without spending to much!

  22. According to the Amazon listing, you are wearing the green sweater vest wrong. All the photos show the buttons down the back 🙂 If not wearing a jacket over it, I think I like the button details on the back better.

    1. LOL! I like the buttons down the front for a more comfortable time but I will definitely give it a try the other way. 😊

  23. Thank you for giving us so many ideas how to dress. I write down your ideas and then shop my clothes.

  24. Love the pecan brown jeans. I can’t wait for fall but seems so far away right now.

    1. I would never buy any of these tops, but your newsletters inspire me to reach outside of my comfort zone a bit.

  28. The last outfit is my favorite. Cute top. I am really loving the color of those brown/pecan colored jeans! Also love the leather tote!!

  29. My vote is for the fourth outfit. You look effortlessly chic, and I love the pecan brown!

  35. Summer here in Idaho was late coming so I’m hoping it lingers for a while.

  36. Susan ann Koren says:

    Love the green top – such a pretty shade.

  37. I love the quilted bag!

  38. Limbo is an excellent choice of words for this time of year. I live in the South so it’s especially hard for us to find outfits that transition into fall. Thanks for the great ideas…more please! Have a blessed day!

    1. Thanks, Willa. I hope you have a blessed day, too!

  39. I love the denim jacket. I enjoy having my coffee with you every morning as I read the blog. Have a great day.

  40. My favorite is the white Swiss dot top and jeans. So cute! It is still way too hot and humid here to even think about a denim jacket. 😂🥵

  41. I love the brown jeans—something a little different! Also like the jean jacket!

    1. Thank you for commenting! 🙂

  42. Brown jeans!! Love them!

  43. I’m ready for fall. However, we have a LOT more summer yet here in FL

  44. Penny Smith says:

    Love the first handbag shown!

  45. Ginger Hiller says:

    My two favorites are the green sweater vest outfit and the brown jeans outfit. I’m definitely interested in the brown jeans and think I will add them to my closet. I’m glad you shared that you leave your tank tops in your closet year round & why. I think I will do that starting this fall. Thanks!

    1. Thank you for commenting! ❤️

      1. I love the color of those jeans as well, unusual but works well for late summer/fall. The two sweater tops are very pretty. Love those looks.

  46. I also like browns for the end of Summer into Fall. You look great in that green top!

  47. The jeans just went on my shopping list!

    1. I’m glad that you enjoyed this post! Thanks for commenting.

  48. Love the Pecan colored pants! I’m ordering me a pair. Since I’ve retired I’m in a rut of wearing only jeans. So maybe these will help! Thanks!!

  49. Love these outfits! Those pecan jeans read almost like a pink in the photos. Is it the lighting?

    1. It must be the lighting. They aren’t dark brown, but they are definitely a brown color.

  50. All the outfits are great, but I like the first one for right now. In August you’re ready for a touch of Fall in your wardrobe but the temps still say summer. I have looked at that jean jacket so often but was wondering if you know the actual length of the jacket. I don’t like that a lot of jean jackets are short. Thanks for the post!

    1. Cindy, I’m not sure about the length, but it isn’t short or cropped. There are longer length jackets available that hit around your hips, but this one is the classic length that hits right at the hips.

  51. Love the striped ruffle top!

  52. My fav is the outfit with the peach jeans.. so cute! I have the Marc Fisher’s, haven’t thought about them with jeans, but will!

  53. Those jeans – and the colors! I am excited for fall to get here.

  54. Linda Shearer says:

    The green sweater vest ouu lala! Also like the white flowy top and the pecan brown jeans!

  55. That white Swiss blouse looks nice on you! I also like the last outfit on you, the pecan colored jeans! Love the jean color, I like the wide leg jeans but I have a hard time finding any that aren’t a mile long on me!! I need to be 3” taller 😂

    1. That’s what high heels are for. Lol. My sister is 5’2” and she bought some recently at the Nordstrom sale and got them to alter them. 😀

  56. I like the blue stripe but wish it had sleeves. My favorite is the white. I love everything about it. I don’t really like green and I never wear thin straps but I love the peach color and agree it would be great for fall.

  57. A great jean jacket always pulls a look together! Your outfits styled with a jacket are my favorites. Love the kelly- green top/vest with the jacket! Thanks!

    1. Thank you for commenting! 🙂

  58. Dana Smithmier says:

    Great post Tania!!

  59. Exploring tans and browns for fall this year.

  60. Cheryll Ssmpson says:

    Fall seems a far off dream right now, but thanks for the ideas.

  61. Ooooooo love the pecan jeans-that is a new color and since I LOVE pink I think I will order this asap! I’ll try the medium since I think I am similarly sized as you.

    1. Thanks for commenting! ❤️

  62. Wonderful options, love the white Swiss dot blouse and yes bring on denim jackets!

  63. Love the pecan brown jeans!

  64. Do you have a link for the green sweater vest? The one posted is for the spaghetti strap one you are wearing in apricot. I prefer the wider straps. Thanks!

    1. Susan, the link is the same for both sweaters. The green option has wider straps.

  65. Love the little pink purse!

  66. The denim jacket says fall!!

  67. Debbie ONeil says:

    I love all these looks. To pick just one would be very hard. I hate that summer is coming to an end. I have had a great summer this year.
    I enjoy reading your posts. Your stories make me smile.

  68. Jamie Mannin says:

    I’m not ready for fall but the cute outfits you post are getting me there!

  69. Kelly Brooks says:

    Love, love the wide leg jeans and loose fit top my kind of outfit.

  70. Kelly Blackley says:
