Autumn, is that you?! We’re more than half way through Summer, which means that Fall is right on our heels (pun intended). Mid-August to early-September can be a confusing time for fashionistas — while some gals go full fledge into Fall fashion, others are fighting to hold on to every bit of Summer that they can.

Style Tips: The 3 ’S’ of Summer-to-Fall Fashion
Sorting: Sort through your closet and put away those peak Summer items that you no longer need. Throw away any items that you haven’t worn in 5 or more months to make room for the amazing new pieces you’ll be adding!
Shopping: After taking a look through what you’ve got, shop for key items that will fill in any blanks. It’s always good to shop for basics and essentials — they NEVER go out of style!
Stacking: AKA ‘Layering.’ Take some of your favorite Summer pieces and give them an Autumn feel by layering them with duster coats, vests, other outerwear and accessories.
