Take your summer wardrobe to fall with a few styling tricks

You don't need to buy a new closetful of clothes for cooler weather. Get more mileage from your summer wardrobe with our autumn-ready tweaks.

The style: Super feminine and so easy to style, a pleated maxi skirt offers major impact with minimal effort. 

For summer: Play up late-summer vibes by wearing sunset shades from head to toe.

For fall: Add some breezy sophistication with a fall-friendly body suit and fitted knit jacket.
