>> Ease into cooler weather — and add longevity to your Summer basics — by copying this street-snapped styling trick. Warm-weather mainstays like mini skirts, T-shirts, and strappy wedges may seem destined for storage once the temperatures drop, but by employing a little expert layering, these wardrobe favorites can power on straight through Fall. A long shawl cardigan adds warmth when layered under an oversized white blazer, while strappy sandals get elevated to boot status with the addition of ankle socks and sheer tights. Strong accessories — a black bucket bag, a thick cuff bracelet, a wide belt — help to ground the look. Want to make this style your own?
