With summer well on its way out, it’s time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. Fortunately, this is an exciting process! Begin by welcoming new additions to your closet, while building on the pieces that you already own. You don’t have to start all over each time the season changes! With a few updates, you can extend the life of your summer clothes by easily transitioning them into fall.
Even the most fashionable celebrities are recycling their summer wardrobes for fall. All it takes is a little creativity and the right styling to get a completely different outfit fit for fall weather, while still using just one piece of clothing. Summer may be over and out, but that doesn’t mean you have to store away all of your summer clothes. Some things can be worn all year around! The key is to style and accessorize your outfit so that you don’t look out of season.

6 Ways Celebrities Transform Summer Staples For The Fall Season:
1. Bright Colored Blazers
Victoria Justice opted for a coral colored short suit and gray booties at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards.

This is a great look for the office and can even be worn out after work for happy hour. Don’t be afraid of wearing color during the fall and winter months; there is no rule that says color is only for summer!
2. Maxi Dresses
Olivia Wilde looked stylish while running errands in her leather jacket and maxi dress by Ella Moss. You will want to keep your maxi dresses around for fall because they are an easy piece to layer. If you don’t already own a leather jacket, you’ll definitely want to invest in one for fall. (Click here for great leather jacket options for fall). Wear one with your favorite summer maxi to add edginess to your look. Be sure to trade your sandals for flats or sneakers and you’ll instantly have a laidback day look.
3. Printed Summer Dresses
For a polished look, wear a printed summer dress with a blazer and pair of heels, like Reese Witherspoon did. Not only are maxi dresses transitional for fall, so are your printed summer dresses! Layer a printed dress over tights for an instant fall update. The great thing about this look is that it is very versatile and can be worn day or night.

4. Jean Shorts
Kristin Cavallari looked effortlessly cool in her denim cutoffs and tights while out and about in L.A. Denim shorts are a wardrobe item that can be worn during almost any season. Just like dresses, they are great for layering over tights. Denim shorts can be worn with all kinds of tights from colored, to textured, opaque or sheer.
5. Strappy Sandals
Khloe Kardashian was seen traveling in 7 For All Mankind skinny jeans, a dark lightweight sweater, and black strappy sandals. For the first few weeks of September when the weather is still in between warm and cool temperatures, planning your outfits can be a little tricky. This is why you shouldn’t store your sandals away just yet. Instead of wearing your strappy sandals with shorts, wear them with skinny jeans and a light sweater for a casual fall look. You can also add a statement necklace or pile on some bracelets to dress it up.

6. Tunics & Flowy Tops
Instead of wearing a flowy top with summer shorts, pair it with some leather leggings, like Olivia Palermo did. You will definitely want to keep flowy tops and tunics in your closet for fall. Leather leggings are edgy and a lightweight top will add a feminine touch to your look. A sexy pair of stilettos is all you need to complete this outfit for a night out.
