3 Ways to Move Summer Fashion to Fall

Don't put away your hot-weather pieces just yet. Here are three that, with our tweaks, can last you through the fall.
The Sundress
1. Add a tank with thicker straps and a cardigan in a rich fall color to mellow the summertime vibe of this dress.

Classic tank, Jockey, $12; Cardigan, New York & Company, $35; Bow flats, Bitten Sarah Jessica Parker, $9; Steve & Barry's, for store info. Rosette belt, J.Crew, $38;
2.Reduce the chill factor (and up the cool factor) by wearing a sundress with a leather jacket, opaque tights, and a scarf -- or two!
Jacket, Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans, $98; Dillards, Macy's, 800-777-4524 for store info, Tights, Kushyfoot, $8; "Viper" heels, Nina, $90; "Sandrine Dot" scarf, Banana Republic, $49; Skinny scarf, L. Erickson, $28; Wristlet, Express, $40; select Express stores. Bracelet, Ted Rossi, $118;
Sundress, Nicole by Nicole Miller for JCPenney, $70; 877-FIND-JCP for store info.
Cropped Pants
1. Swap flip-flops for closed-toe heels and strappy tanks for tailored pieces to land a chic autumn office look.
Ombre tie blouse, Newport News, $29; Sweater vest, Isaac Mizrahi for Target, $25; 800-800-8800 for store info, "Betty" heels, Butter, $225; Tani, NYC, 212-873-4361,
2. Flat riding boots and thick knit layers help cropped pants make the switch to a new season.
Striped Henley, Dockers, $34; 800-DOCKERS, "Reanna" cardigan, Charlotte Tarantola, $165; "Sam" boots, Corso Como, $285; "Harvest Beaded" scarf, Tolani, $99;
Cropped Pants, Metro 7, $16;
Gladiator Sandals
1. These sandals still work after you've put your shorts in storage. Wear them with superwide-leg pants instead of heels.
Tank, New York & Company, $27; Cardigan, Old Navy, $25; Pants, H&M, $50; for store info. Patent belt, Kmart, $13; Necklace, Icing, $11; 800-CLAIRES, Ombre tote, Mossimo for Target, $25; select Target stores,
2. Gladiators are an unexpectedly chic replacement for ballet flats with a skirt and blazer -- the turtleneck protects against the chilly autumn air.
