The Hottest Summer Trends Cool Enough To Transition Into Fall

Don't say we didn't warn you.

With Fall 2021 around the corner, it's time to mentally prepare ourselves for the cold weather outfits we missed the previous year. Although it feels like we've been playing catch up, this season we're picking up where summer is leaving off by transitioning the chicest trends into cold weather combinations one look at a time. If you've been shopping wisely this summer then you'll have plenty of items already in your closet to mix and match for fall.


This year, fall ready-to wear collections are bolder, brighter and more exciting than what we've seen as of late. Call it the "Roaring 20's" or pure optimism but it's a stark contrast from last year's at-home inspired trends. Designers are implementing patterns and features that inspire us to live in the moment, allowing our sense of style to do the talking for us. I'm excited to come with the looks next season as I curate my closet utilizing my existing summer favorites.

These are the latest trends I'm currently obsessed with and refuse to let go next season and beyond.

1.Platforms

This year there has been a rise in platforms. With the late 90's and early 2000's being a major trend throughout the fashion and beauty industries, the era was dominated by higher than life platforms. From heels to sneakers, chunky soles are dominating the current shoe trends and I don't see the end of this trend any time soon.

2.Slip Dress

One of my favorite looks during warm weather months is a slip dress. With this classic dress style, it's easy to transition for fall paired with a sneaker or a boot and a jacket, if needed. Adorn with your favorite chunky accessories and a handle bag for even more sass to elevate this super chic look.

3.Geometric Prints

There's something about geometric prints that add an artistic element to every look. Super modern, we've seen a rise in heavy prints this summer and will continue to enjoy them this fall.

4.Asymmetrical

This summer I got my hands on as many asymmetrical looks I could buy. I love this sexy sleek trend and can't wait to see more styles this fall. From clothing items to boots and accessories, get ready to take this trend up another notch.

5.Cut Outs

As I get older, I'm learning that modesty is the best policy. While I do like to show skin here and there, I prefer to leave some things up to the imagination. The cut out trend is one of my favorites this year due to the classy and subtle details when a cut out is placed in all the right places. For fall, I'm looking forward to the combination of cut out knitwear this season.

6.Wide Leg/Utility Pants

Wide leg utility pants are my favorite switch-up this summer. The lightweight alternative to thick sweatpants, I can't get enough of this pant style and will continue them into next season. Add a sneaker or pair with a sleek pointed toe boot for the perfect oversized look this fall.

7.Completely Sheer

Sheer tops are trending this summer, worn with a crop cami or bikini top for a pool side look. This fall, add into your rotation by laying with a full length cami or layered under your favorite jacket. Go for a long sleeve for extra coverage paired with a straight leg pant and a pump to elevate your see-through look.

8.Bucket Hats

Bucket hats are a classic head piece that has seen a huge rise in popularity over the last few months. I'm loving the transition from summer styles to the faux furs that make this accessory more chic and fashion forward. Set the tone with a matching set paired with a textured bucket hat for a head to toe cold weather moment.

A couple of years ago, I wrote an article for the site entitled, "Why You Should Stop Faking Orgasms ASAP". I'm pretty sure that you can tell from the title that I'm not particularly a fan of faking it. In fact, back in my "getting it in" days, I would have no problem letting a guy know that if he needed more motivation (cue Kelly Rowland) to get me to where I wanted to go. I was down for that more than acting like he was doing what needed to be done. Still, between all of the counseling that I do, the conversations that I've had and the research that I've done, I am more than just a little bit aware that a whopping 80 percent of women have faked orgasms and 1 out of 4 guys do it too (just because a man ejaculates, that doesn't mean he climaxed; that's another topic for another time, though).

Doja Cat has had a very prosperous few years in the music industry. She dropped two albums within two years, which charted well on Billboard, and her songs “Streets” and “Say So” from her 2019 project Hot Pink took over the internet during the pandemic due to them going viral on TikTok.

Recently, while having a conversation with a friend who is currently going through the PTSD of a divorce, one of the things that they kept saying over and over is, "I'm just so disappointed in myself." If you've read my content, even a little bit, then you know that I am pretty word-specific and so I gave that statement — one that is pretty common when you really stop to think about it — quite a bit of thought. Although I think a lot of people feel that being disappointed in themselves (or someone else) means that they feel bad about something that they said or done, the word actually means "to fail to fulfill the expectations or wishes of" and "to defeat the fulfillment of (hopes, plans, etc.); thwart; frustrate."

Let me just say, before we deep dive into this particular topic, that I'm pretty sure that it's not going to go into the direction that a lot of you think that it's going to. In fact, the inspiration for this piece came from a series of conversations that I've had with a male friend of mine who is in one of the dumbest (meaning it's counterproductive, so not what he truly wants or needs and is proving to be a total waste of time, even as we speak) relationships ever. So, why is he in it? I would say about 70 percent of the reason is because he and his girlfriend have, what he calls, some really amazing sex. What brought me to this conclusion? It's because when he's complaining and I ask him why he stays, something about the sex almost always comes up. I mean, always.

Michael B. Jordan is in love y’all and is telling everyone about it. The Creed actor and Lori Harvey sent the internet into a frenzy when rumors first swirled of the couple dating in late 2020 after they were spotted leaving a flight together. And in January 2021, the two confirmed their relationship with the public. Now, after celebrating their one-year anniversary, the once Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor is professing his love for the model.
