Get the Look : Transitional Dressing

Transitional dressing is no walk in the park, especially if you have a Manhattan-sized closet (read as: miniscule). How can you get the most out of your summer clothes before storing them away in favor of cozy sweaters and opaque tights? By mixing and matching with some of fall's best trends.

Tuck an easy button up shirt into a summery printed mini, then add on multiple mini bags and a pair of lucite heeled boots. The accessories are what keep this look from looking too 4th-of-July-type patriotic, and will help you ease straight into fall.

All Black Everything, Even in Summer

We all know that one lady whose idea of a bold color statement is adding a red lip to an all black outfit. She lives for winter and fall, always looks super chic, and can pull literally any two items from her closet, throw them on, and be good to go. The one season the "all black everything" woman hasn't mastered yet? Summer. But have no fear, because these monochrome fashionistas are here to show you how. Scroll on for some style inspiration that will have even the most color friendly babes ditching their rainbow hues for black on black.

Temperatures are heating up to an almost unbearable degree and all you want to do to stay in and binge watch Netflix in your sports bra and undies. Don't waste your summer laying on the couch! (Isn't that what winter is for, anyway?) Get up and embrace the heat in loose, breezy separates and barely there sandals.

No one will even notice the growing sweat spot on your back if you're wearing bold graphics and bright colors, promise. Stick to breathable fabrics and light-as-air accessories to round off the look. And as always, don't forget the SPF!
