Even though the leaves are changing colors and the weather is getting brisk, there is no reason to put away your summer take tops and dresses. All you have to do is layer. Here are some of my favorite layering methods of the Fall season:

The blazer: A blazer does not only have to be worn in the office…it is the perfect mix between classy and dreamy. Wearing a blazer over any outfit is a foolproof plan. Blazers are ideal if it’s too warm for a jacket but too chilly to wear a dress by itself. You can stay simple with a solid color or you can get more risky with it and go with a metallic, gold sequin blazer (like Whitney Port’s look below, one similar can be found here).

Tights under shorts: what are you to do when you didn’t get to wear your favorite pair of cut off jeans shorts as much as you would have liked? You can put tights under them! It’s a brilliant idea that allows you to wear your favorite summer clothes past September and still stay warm! Don this look during the day with opaque, colored tights and tweed shorts, or try it out at night with denim cut-offs and black tights (like Alexa Chung’s look below).

Scarf it Up: Wearing a scarf on the chilliest of the fall days is a guaranteed way to stay warm. My personal favorite is the infinity scarf, a huge trend that makes throwing one on in the morning a no-brainer. Whether you rock an infinity or stick with the original, scarves are perfect for this type of weather because you can wear them in so many different ways! (Seriously, there’s a whole website devoted to them.) The scarf look is made even better when worn under a leather or jean jacket, creating the perfect fall ensemble.
