Pair it with a Jean Jacket 5 of 13
Here I transitioned the same green dress by pairing it with a jean jacket. Snakeskin is also on trend for fall, so I paired it with a pair of snakeskin ballet flats. You can also add a cardigan to make it more season appropriate. And if you live somewhere where it doesn't get extremely cold (for example I live in Miami) sometimes all you need is a jean jacket or light cardigan.

White t-shirts are another one of my summer go-to's. Here I am wearing it with a pleated skirt and brown wedge sandals for a summer look.
