Sick of your summer clothes?
Rachel Zoe, the Ladies of Dannijo and other designers have some chic style tricks to get you through to fall!
Even though fall is right around the corner, we still have most of steamy August to trudge through (plus those balmy September days). So, yup, you still have to keep wearing those summer clothes. And, if you're like us, you're so sick of it all. Luckily, we have these super-chic fashion designers to consult for strategies on how to refresh your summer wardrobe in style.
"Transitional pieces are everything, and layering is key. You can't go wrong with mixed media jackets in lightweight bodies with edgy accents. Find one that you love and wear it over your favorite T-shirt, jeans and gladiator sandals for a summer night. In fall, layer it with a gauzy cashmere cardigan, your favorite leggings and moto booties."

Michelle Smith of Milly
Milly designer Michelle Smith has such a lockdown on whimsical summer prints (still dying over those adorable elephant shorts she designed for her Banana Republic collab), we wonder if she's really devastated that the season is almost over. Not quite. She says:
"This is why I love pre-fall — it's that short but sweet season between light and airy summer clothes and tons of layering. One of my favorite looks for this time of year is what I call "the new suit" — a couture tweed jacket with leather details and shorts from the same material. You can wear these two pieces together or mix them up. I love that they're colorful but versatile — the jacket can be worn separately with jeans or a dress and the shorts can be paired down with a silk blouse, crisp button-down or simple T-shirt. There's no better feeling than buying something that works with every single piece in your closet. Who doesn't love being able to make eight outfits instantly?"

Shoshanna Gruss of Shoshanna
Girls flock to Shoshanna Gruss' self-named line for the prettiest, flirtiest dresses and swimsuits — especially in the summer. But we're kind of wondering what other tricks the New York designer has up her sleeve to kick up her end-of-summer style. She says:
"Add a fun twist to your favorite pair of printed pants by pairing them with a complimentary pattern. I love a classic striped top in neutrals paired with a playful abstract floral pant, such as, our Brandis Tab Waist style."
