You don’t need to pack away your summer pieces just yet! With a few simple styling tricks you can take your favourite summer basics into autumn.
Here are four pieces that can easily transition your summer wardrobe to atumn.
1. A (faux) leather jacket
Just think about it. Any outfit will look more autumn and edgy if you add a leather jacket to it. Pair your leather jacket with one of your light and strappy summer dresses. Drape the leather jacket over your shoulders while wearing a white tee and a pair of denim shorts. It works with almost anything summery. This Forever 21 Faux PU Biker Jacket looks cool, vintage and won’t break the bank at all!

2. Black booties
Wear a pair of black booties with any of your summer pieces and you will instantly make them autumn appropriate. Booties with a denim skirt and a casual light sweater. Booties with a summer dress. Booties with denim shorts. It really goes with almost anything. Make sure they hit the right spot at your ankle, so you don’t look shorter than usual. To make you feel even taller, wear your new black boots with black tights. Nothing like one colour to make you look slimmer and feel taller. I love this Felipe Ankle Boot from Mango. Fashion forward, yet classic at the same time

3. Autumn coloured sunnies
Sometimes, the simplest accessory can transform your entire outfit. Instead of going for the brightly coloured summer shades, go for a darker hue and wear them to give your face that “Hello November!” look.
