If you're looking for a great transitional look, stick with the crop top you've been wearing over summer and add a trench coat on top.

You can't go wrong with a sleek button-down top. Jazz it up with a fun bag and a sweater.

Baseball caps are an accessory that I've been wearing more than ever recently. Add one to a simple jeans outfit to achieve a cool sporty look.

Oversize button-down shirts are the summer basic that you should definitely hold on to for fall. Pair one with jeans and basketball sneakers.

The vest-top trend is taking off for fall. While I've mostly seen it worn with tailored trousers, adding a pair of printed jeans is a cool styling idea.

Yep, another button-down outfit. The basic is such a key staple, and I love how many different ways you can style one. This black-on-black look is so chic.

A leather jacket instantly pulls together any jeans look. This one is styled with casual Converse but would look equally cool with heels.
