When you come armed with these styling tips to get more wear out of these 5 summer staples, you're sure to nail that tricky area of transitional dressing in no time.

Crop Tops

When layered with a high-waisted jewel toned skirt and a lightweight trench, your fave summer crop top turns into a key piece of your fall wardrobe. You get extra points when you pair this ensemble with a menswear-inspired oxford or a pair of edgy creepers. You can also replicate this look and substitute the skirt with high-waisted trousers.

Floral Dresses

Don't shove your floral dresses in the back of your closet just because the leaves have started to fall. With black tights worn underneath and a motorcycle jacket worn over top, your floral sundress is given a new lease on life.

Open Toed Sandals

Sandals with socks used to be a faux pas, emphasis on 'used to be.' Nowadays, the most stylish set have embraced this trend with their fall looks. Hosiery or thick socks worn with platform sandals are the newest styling trick you should incorporate.

Gingham Print

Gingham was a HUGE print trend this summer. Whether you have a gingham print button-down or a gingham skirt, the key to taking gingham into the fall is pairing with more seasonal items like a chunky sweater or a fur vest. Wear a graphic gray sweatshirt over a feminine gingham print midi or layer a fur vest over your gingham button-down and you'll be on your way to fall chic in no time.

Mini Dresses

While leg-baring silhouettes become less on-trend for fall, there is still a way to sport shorter hemlines even when the temps drop from hot and humid to crisp and chilly. Layer a turtleneck underneath your minidress and sling your fall coat over your shoulders for a look that spells fashion industry insider.

Kimono Tops

Denim cutoffs and tank tops were your go-to look with trendy kimono tops for the summer. Swap those out with denim and long-sleeved blouses and you can turn kimono tops into one of your statement outerwear pieces for fall.
