It's almost time to say farewell to the hot summer days and hello to the cool breezes of fall. In between seasons is a tricky time fashion wise, what’s a stylish gal supposed to do? Wait, don’t pack away your summer pieces just yet! You can take your warm-weather favorites well into the fall simply by using a few simple styling tricks.

Wrap Yourself In A Scarf
Scarves are the ultimate year round accessory. You can wear lighter ones in the summer and thicker, warmer ones in the fall. Try the new and trending skinny scarves as well as infinity scarves for a cute an stylish twist on a classic. Circle scarves are super easy to wear because they don't require anything fancy, just throw on and go. Remember that scarf that doubled as a sarong on those beach days, it will keep you warm in the winter so don’t shelf it just yet.

Give Your Legs Some Flare 
Still want to wear your cute summer dress or that romper you just picked up? Or even that razor sharp pleated summer skirt? Well, throw on a pair of opaque tights or stockings with those summer favorites and enjoy them during the cooler months as well. Get creative with it and select styles that are feature funky colors or patterns. Trend reports say emerald is the color of the season, pop in an emerald accessory for a trendy  up to date look. Get more wear out of the shorts you loved wearing in the summer by switching out the sandals for boots and a coat. Layer a tribal leggings underneath for that eccentric stand out in a crowd look. That way the shorts you loved wearing in the summer will serve you even more fabulously in the cold months as well.

Layer It Up 
Give your body a little extra warmth by layering a camisole with a tee shirt and a cardigan. Don't forget that by simply layering your clothing, you can get tons of new outfit combinations, giving you tons of styles right in your own closet. 
The robe coat is one of the singular most coveted pieces this fall and has the ability to transform your looks from drab to fab while keeping you warm. It’s loungy silhouette is very forgiving. Invest in one and style it in different ways to get multiple outfit combos. Wear it belted with skinny slacks underneath, wear it by itself with a turtle neck some ankle boots or even over the knee boots. Its versatility with the pieces you already own is unmatched. 
Layer your classic white shirts under a sweater with a pair of wet look leggings. Finish it off with a cross body bag. Ditch the wedge for ankle boots to keep those dainty feet warm yet stylish. 
Layer a poncho over a classic shirt with some ankle grazing skinny jeans that you rocked in the summer. 
A sleeveless trench coat over that summer dress looks ever so stylish in the fall.
A faux fur vest over a shirt paired with that favorite summer mini skirt and boots is yet another way to take a summer favorite into fall. Top this look off with a hat and finish it off with a vampy lippy for an edgy fall ready look.
