How to Transition Your Summer Stuff Into Fall
Instead of rockin' the beloved hi-lo skirt with a cute pair of sandals, opt for booties this fall.

Trade in the "farm girl" flair for a more sophisticated approach with summer's tie-front tops. Try one with a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans.

That's right -- you can wear this summer's haute one-piece numbers in the fall. Think: Lady Gaga, only with pants.

As for the two-piece, try your fave bikini top with a high-waisted long skirt and a cute cropped jacket.

It might be a little unheard of to lug your straw bag in September, but if you tie an autumn-y scarf around the handle, you're golden.

We don't need to tell you this, but we'll remind you anyway. Tights, ladies. Just wear tights with your summer dresses -- no matter how short.

Until snow falls on the ground, we fully support wearing your flat sandals around town. The trick is to rock 'em with a pair of on-trend trousers, preferably in fun patterns or basic black.

For your open-toed shoes with lifts, totally go Clueless on us and wear some knee-highs.

What Not to Wear
Put the short shorts and neons in storage. They're out for now, but don't worry -- they'll be back next summer.
