Transition to Fall with ease by following a few simple guidelines:
Don Fall hues.
Store away your bright colored summer-only clothes and transition into more neutral tones. Think cream, khaki, navy and gray. In keeping a neutral palette, we look seasonably appropriate. Many think white denim must be stored away after Labor Day, however, you can stretch out your favorite pair of white jeans a few more weeks if paired with any of the fall hues like the ones mentioned above and others like army green and mustard yellow.
Also, try pairing lighter colors with darker denim as a way to keep your darker denim light enough for the end of summer. Pale blue, lavender and cream are good color choices.
Ditch the sandals and the flip flops.
Wearing ballet flats, peep toe shoes, pumps and clogs with your transition wardrobe helps to complete the look.
Begin to layer.
Not all of your summer clothes need to be stowed away and if you have some favorite pieces that fit into the guidelines above, you can wear them a few more weeks by adding some layers. For example, any neutral colored dress can work when paired with a sweater or light jacket. Also, scarves are a great way to update your wardrobe. Don’t pile jackets, sweaters and scarves on all at once, rather subtly add on a little at a time and the accepted layering guideline is no more than three layers at a time.
A blazer is a great option. Blazers are a great fall essential that can be utilized in and out of the office. There are so many types of blazers out there – I like to wear a lighter weight black, 1/4 length sleeve blazer to wear at the end of the summer and transition to wear thicker layers underneath when the weather gets colder. Here is my favorite blazer for transition:

By the end of Labor Day weekend we should begin our transition from summer to early fall dressing. Stick to the guidelines above and move your Summer style seamlessly into Fall.
