summer to fall fashion
Budgets are tight and we are looking to stretch the dollar anywhere we can -- but can we stretch our summer duds to fall? Absolutely, say the experts!
"Transform your summer wardrobe into fall fashion by adding black tights, black boots and a cropped cardigan to a summer floral dress," suggests Anya Sarre, the ShoeDazzle.com's Chief Accessories Stylist.
Sarre also suggests we take the wardrobe from summer to fall effortlessly by layering dark and jewel tone colors with your summer brights, and to ditch your wedges and flip flops for textured boots and chunky heels to instantly turn your summer look into a fall favorite.
Where to start? Take a look at your basics -- and then look at them in a whole new light.
Print jeans will still be big for fall, although many will transition away from florals. To update, pair with either low boots or big, chunky ankle boots and fall's leather motorcycle or bomber jackets.
Color remains an important trend for fall. Pair with an oversized convex coat and loafers.
These dresses are the easiest style of all to transition into early fall. Wear with a denim jacket and scarf and flat boots for a Jessica Alba-inspired fall look.
Summer's favorite item can be extended into fall by adding tights and boots. For a bohemian feel, top with a slouchy, open knit sweater and add low boots. For a structured look, add a fitted blazer and heeled ankle "statement" boots to the tights and shorts.
