Happy fall to everyone! We all have those summer pieces we wish we could wear past summer. Here are some ways to take summer's favorites into fall. They can be mixed, matched, and reinvented for new warm looks.
Do you have that favorite lace cami that is worn with every piece in the closet? Skip layering it with a cardigan, instead layer it under a dress shirt that has a feminine flair. Try this ruched front shirt from Lane Bryant for $46.95 or http://www.lanebryant.com/
Take your sweet flirty skirt into fall and give it an edgy look by pairing it with a leather or bomber jacket. Try a faux suede bomber jacket by DKNY at Lane Bryant stores or online, http://www.lanebryant.com/ for $118.00.
Keep your capris for the fall, but kick off the flip flops. For fall, add an ankle boot or platform wedge to the outfit. Try the Ordorica ankle boots from Aldo Shoes available in brown or black for $90. Also from Aldo Shoes, try the Forwood platform wedge in six colors for $90. Check them out online at http://www.aldoshoes.com/

Tights & Leggings
Take your favorite skirt or sweater dress and add texture and color with tights or leggings to keep you warm and also balance out the lower half of the body. Try L'eggs tights available at CVS for $6.49 or http://www.leggs.com/ style 01308. For great leggings try out http://www.welovecolors.com/ with over fifty colors in style 6325 for $26.
Think of a jacket as the finishing piece of an outfit, not just to keep you warm. Instead of wearing it with a sundress, add it to a dress shirt and pants for work. Try from Lauren by Ralph Lauren Justin stretch cotton jacket for $79.99. Pair it with Korey ruffled Henley shirt $19.99. Both can be found at http://www.ralphlauren.com/ or a department store, such as Macy's.
