Summer to Fall: Get More Mileage from Your Clothes
Everyone's on a budget these days, and when the seasons change, it's helpful to have a few pieces that carry over into cooler weather. You can make those summer separates that you dress down with other lighter pieces work for fall when the weather starts getting cooler. It'll help you extend your clothing budget so you can invest in some of the trendier pieces of the season, like jewelry and shoes. And if you take advantage of summer clearance sales, then you'll have next year's summer wardrobe all set. Most women have a few basic summer dresses. These make a great base for layering heavier fall items. Florals are still big for fall, so those cute, feminine dresses can be paired with a denim jacket, boots and chunky jewelry to toughen up the look and keep you warm on chilly days.
