- Focus on Dark, Lightweight Separates: Navy cotton slim pants, black pencil skirts, printed dresses in shades of burgundy or green, will look great in September. Pair them with a crisp white blouse, an oversized silk tunic, or a light weight “sweat shirt” style sweater and add a chunky gold link necklace.
- Make the Cardigan your New Best Friend: Extend the life of every sleeveless sheath dress and blouse you own by teaming it with a cardigan. I’m crazy about the season-less ones available at Zara, and own at least a half a dozen. Add a scarf in rich hues. Dark sandals or oxfords are fine for now, but when it gets colder, switch to ankle boots.
- Retire the Summer Handbag: Nothing you carried this Summer will look right now. Two-tone bags are having a huge moment for Fall and will instantly update your look. Look for them in satchels, totes, frame and top handle bags.
- Be Neutral: The khaki, taupe, and gray shades that looked so effortless and cool this summer are also a natural for Fall. Simply pair them with dark accessories and you are good to go.
