It may be hard to believe, but fall is right around the corner. We're into the latter part of the year, and we've got to start planning for the weather to change. It's fun to start grabbing for those characteristic cool-weather pieces in your closet, but don't stow away your summer favorites just yet! The best way to make the transition is by mixing the pieces from the current and the upcoming season, and picking the right pieces from both ends of the spectrum is the key to a successfully styled outfit.

Add a long sleeved element to your denim skirt ensemble and it's instantly transformed into transitional wear.
Swap your sandals for ankle boots! Just the addition of closed-toed shoes can give your outfit the feel of fall without forcing you to get too covered up.
Layering is key, but keep some skin exposed so that your pieces don't swallow your figure, and to keep that last hint of summer alive and well! I love this little hack of layering with your summer dresses to keep them fresh for fall!
Trade your denim shorts for a pair of mom jeans and your summer crop tops, tanks and tees will make the seasonal transition seamlessly.
Get out there and pair those pieces! Some other ideas for items that you can easily add to your summer outfits include opaque tights, wide-brimmed hats, blazers, scarves, vests, light jackets and all manner of knits, tunics and anything in a classic fall hue like rust, mustard yellow, olive or taupe.
