The idea of going from summer to fall can be a difficult one. Along with the change in weather, going into fall with fashion can sometimes leave a dent on the bank account and be time consuming. But there are some tips on how to take your summer clothes and transform them into the latest fall fashions. These tips will definitely help out any fashionista's closet while still keeping them up to date with the latest trends.
One concept that most people think is that once the weather changes, say bye bye to all your white clothing. But fear not! The rule "no white after labor day" is long gone. White is a staple in a wardrobe so being able to utilize it in every season is a must! SO here are some tips on how to bring your white clothes into the fall weather.

J. Crew india Dress; Old Navy Cropped Utility Jacket; Madewell Sandstorm Bootie; Rebecca Minkoff Flirty Crossbody Bag
The little white dress does not need to go into storage just because it is after Labor Day. Try pairing the simple dress with a layer of color, a neutral or something bright would be perfect! For accessories, try something bold like a statement necklace or larger tote.
A simple sweater/dress paired with combat boots and a vest is the perfect outfit for those cold days!
To keep those long maxi dresses and skirts flowing into fall, just add tights! Pairing it with some riding boots or combat boots, and with a blazer or jacket can turn a simple maxi dress into a fabulous fall day-to-night outfit. A trend for fall is definitely the sleeveless jacket over pants or a dress. This trend can be made into full effect with the summer maxi dress hanging in your closet!

For a different look with a long maxi skirt, throwing on an oversized sweater as a top can make for a unique outfit. The long maxi skirt, knit oversized sweater, along with some utilitarian booties is the perfect fit to balance out the lightness and add warmth to it.

White pants are a piece that can scream summer, but made into the right outfit, then can fit the definition of fall style. It can be easily done too. Pair the white pants with a blazer and fall's must-have shoe... the riding boot! If you are going to invest in something, make it a fabulous pair of riding boots. They can be paired with almost every summer outfit and it immediately can be transitioned into a perfect fall ensemble.

All we have heard throughout summer was "color, color, and more color" so now that fall is around the corner, where should we throw all the bright clothes we now have? The answer is put them right into your fall outfits! It's fun to find new ways to accentuate them and display them for a whole new season. Little things like matching tights, socks, contrasting bag, cape, or jacket are things that are going to make the outfit a hit. A cape is a key component in the fall wardrobe; it is easy to dress up a outfit and works well with temperatures that fluctuate!

For the last tip, it's all about utilizing that little summer mini in the closet! Throw it on over a nice pair of cropped pants, tights, or leggings. For those not willing to bulk up, the opaque black tight still works as well. Instead of a basic coat, go for a different look with a longer cape!
