Late summer/early fall is my favorite time of the year because it’s the time to be more creative and have more fun, to combine summer pieces with cold weather garments, to play with lightweight materials and chunky textures…Since we broke the “No white after Labor day” rule, teaming summer crisp white with fall rich earth tone adds more interesting contrast to our looks. As you can see above, I featured three of my favorite transitional looks today to share with you some styling tips I learned from them.

First is a Boho-chic look from Jessica Alba. By changing summer shorts into printed jeans and adding earth tone tote, she stays comfy yet stylish in chilly late summer days.

Printed pants are a hot trend this whole year. To make them cold weather appropriate, change spring/summer colorful floral version into animal print, metallic or jacquard version for the coming season.

 This elegant, sophisticated look from Miranda Kerr is my favorite recently. I love how she easily transformed a white dress into early fall simply by adding rich brown accessories, and a scarlet lip. Brown is my favorite neutral color. It’s universally flattering and goes with almost any color.  Miranda Kerr street style, Miranda Kerr Willow dress,  Miranda Kerr Lanvin pumps, Miranda Kerr Miu Miu belt, Miranda Kerr Miu Miu Vitello Top Handle Bag, Prada Spazzolato Top Handle Bag,MARC JACOBS 'Classic Wellington' Leather Satchel,Ralph Lauren brown leather belt, Madewell perfect leather belt, Balenciaga TWO-TONE LEATHER BELT,helenhou, helen hou, the art of accessorizing, accessoriseart, celebrity style, street style, lookbook, model off-duty,red carpet looks,red carpet looks for less, fashion, style, outfits, fashion guru, style guru, fashion stylist, what to wear, fashion expert, blogger, style blog, fashion blog,look of the day, celebrity look,celebrity outfit,designer shoes, designer cloth,designer

Alexa Chung is well-known for her signature British boyish preppy style, and this outfit is no exception. Long sleeve tops are definitely must-haves for transitioning into fall. With them, we can continue rock our favorite shorts or skirts. Here, Alexa wore a long sleeve shirt under summer denim jump shorts for the preppy vibe and changed sandals into the hot shoe trend for this fall–the loafers!

Manish shoes are the hottest in the coming season, like loafer, brogue, creeper. Look for details that set them apart from men’s shoes: embellishment, feline, polka dot, studs all can make you stand out from the crowd.
