As a timeless summer essential, white shorts get stocked up in many of our closets. Thanks to last year’s “white revolution”, which broke the “No white after labor day” rule, now we can rock white year round. During this transitioning season, let’s learn some tips about how to stylishly transform white shorts into fall from all the stylish ladies we featured above.

During late summer, change sleeveless tees to long sleeve tops or blouse. Since our bottoms are white which is the perfect canvas, we can have fun with our tops: a doodle-print blouse (which is my favorite collaboration I will talk later in this post), a of-the-moment lace top or a bright chunky sweater all guarantee to keep us stylish yet cozy. Earth tone accessories, especially these suede ankle booties and this “it” bag are my favorite choices during cold season.

The third look above is my favorite because of this special doodle-print blouse by Kate Spade. Designer collaborations with fast fashion are notorious for their poor quality but artist collaboration with reliable brands is another story–it can result stunning pieces that incorporate the brand’s signature silhouette, trusty quality in addition with the artistic and inspirational prints which are unique and price-worthy.

Not all of us can afford Yayoi Kusama’s design for Louis Vuitton, but pieces from a tasteful photographer for an affordable brand are something we can definitely get our hands on, like the doodle blouse (above) from a stylish lady, also a great photographer and talented blogger, Garance Dore for Kate Spades. The fun print, slightly pleated sleeves and peter pan collar will add a sweet twist to any girls wardrobe. Keep others simple and neutral to make the blouse take center stage. An earthy tone woven belt, a fine leather brown clutch, and a pair of crisp white shorts balance out the girly vibe of the top without competing.

During her collaboration, this cute iphone case and this Dylan skirt on the same print also caught my eyes. Are you a fan of this new collection?
