It is that time of year! The temperature is dropping and many are being forced to put away their jean shorts and flip flops. Even though the season is ending, it is not necessary to put away all your summer clothing. Most summer outfits can be transformed into cute fall trends.

Fall is known for its "not too hot, not too cold" weather. Which means, short sleeves can still be worn during the season. For the  girls who purchased what is known as a "half-shirt" or a Crop T paired with a cute scarf, they can still be worn. It is a seasonally appropriate alternative. Also, pairing it with cute accessories, like a long necklace, earrings, bracelets, etc., and your favorite pair of jeans would be a fashionable fall style. Tank tops are, and always will be, a huge must in the summer. Wearing a cardigan or a long button up sweater with a summer tank top keeps them stylish and appropriate throughout the fall season. Cardigans and tanks can also be paired with a matching headband, necklace, earrings or scarf. The cute half sleeved sweater or thin sweatshirt to wear with shorts on cold summer night can also be paired with a pair of jeans and accessories. Flowy summer skirts can now be worn with tights or leggings and boots. These are all adorable fall styles.

As for shoes, in early fall, sandals and flats are still cute to wear with jeans. Any cute closed toe shoes are acceptable for autumn wear. A pair of Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes or moccasins also look cute with cuffed jeans while knee high boots, tall leather boots, short boots, or riding boots all look cute with tucked in jeans.

Fall is the time to be cozy and comfortable. Enjoy new fall outfits and recycle summer clothing to have your most stylish autumn ever!
