In these hard economic times it makes more sense than ever to make the most out of our purchases. Thus taking Summer’s best pieces and transitioning them into a Fall wardrobe can be cost effect and at the same time add some flair to an otherwise sea of monochromatic fall/winter style. Juxtaposing a summer printed frock with a wool cardigan, dark tights, and your favorite seasonal boots will give your look an edge with subtle femininity!
For instance, taking a lightweight silk blouse, (which is commonly sold as summer purchase), can fit perfectly in your new transitional wardrobe with say a great pair of designer denim and/or paired with a leather jacket.

Another savvy approach would be to couple that flirty summer skirt with a pair of flats- add on a cashmere crewneck sweater and a sleek silk scarf to complete the look.

Summer may have come to an end but your best and most adaptable pieces from the sunny season should certainly stick around!
