3. Save the Skirt!

Don’t be so quick to throw those summer skirts into the back of your closet, they too can be used revamped to fit into your fall catalog!

You can also do this for your favorite pair of chiffon shorts you’ve been dying to wear that one last time!

4. Dressed for Success

One of the simplest ways to stretch your summer wardrobe is to pair your summer dresses with stockings and a jacket. Depending on the weather a denim jacket might suffice, but if the weather is brisk enough pull out your fall leather jacket. This look is simple and easy to pull off.

5. Re-inventing white

According to the fashion Gods, wearing white after Labor Day is a major fashion offense. I know, it can be hard putting away your favorite pair of white jeans, but if you pair your white jeans properly, you can save them! In order to get away with wearing white jeans in the fall, always pair them with dark fall colors. As opposed to wearing your light wash denim shirt, try pairing your pants with a dark olive jacket or rust colored top, this way you can wear your white jeans while still maintaining a fall look.
