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."

After almost a decade together and six children, power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally made it official on Saturday, August 23 in Chateau Miraval, France.

Good news for your feet: Sneakers are everywhere this fall. Fashion insiders and celebs alike are sporting athletic shoes with their chicest outfits, making them an essential fall fashion trend. With an abundance of styles in stores right now, it might seem daunting to find the pair that’s right for you. We handpicked the 35 best sneaker styles to try.
We’re just going to say it: Ankle boots might be are our favorite type of boots. They’re tough like classic motos when paired with skinny jeans or leather pants. But they also work in place of fussy heels with a flared skirt or cocktail dress for an unexpected downtown-cool vibe. And, let’s be honest, the ankle height just feels more relaxed and comfortable. Never mind that booties take up way less room in your closet too. Wait. Do you know what that means? You can buy more than just one pair this fall—especially since ankle boots come in so many styles, shapes, colors, heel heights, and price points. So check out these 20 booties for fall.
Fall just gives us the warm fuzzies—and not because of the turning of the leaves, football games, or the excuse to eat pumpkin-flavored everything.

Even though the ’90s and early aughts seem rather far off now that those of us who grew up then have graduated to full-on careers, families, and investment bags, I’m here to let you know: get millennials started talking about the style moments and must-buys that peppered their history and you can’t shut them up. When we had the chance to play around with some of Coach’s new fall bags, it managed to bring up a group-wide memory of living for the brand’s wristlets, circa freshman year of college. From there, the memories of stuff I wanted so bad, from elementary school onward, came pouring out. I’m presenting it all here, supplemented with some contributions from the rest of the Glamour team.
We’re living in the age of the selfie. This year, the word was officially added to the dictionary (we even got variations, like “belfie”—we’ll let you Google that one); the entire Obama family got in on the act; and a major TV network added a show called Selfie to its fall lineup. Oh, and you didn’t even have to watch this year’s Oscars to know that the biggest winner of all was not a film, but in fact the selfie. So it’s about time you learn how to take a really, really good one.
