I'm in California, where it's still about 85 degrees and sweltering, but the rest of the country is lucky enough to get to begin wearing Fall styles.
Instead of going out and buying a whole new wardrobe, there are fashion tricks you can use to transition your summer wardrobe into Fall.
First of all, consider inexpensive accessories such as tights and hats.
There are two sites I love for tights. One is called We Love Colors, which sells tights, leggings, and other legwear in all the colors of the rainbow.
You'll be amazed!
Diamond or regular fishnets look great over contrasting tights.
Tip: You can always wear nude hose under fishnet or diamond tights to get an extra layer of protection from the elements.
Another site I love for legwear is called Sock Dreams, which carries just about everything under the sun you could consider wearing on your legs or feet.
They have SO much more than the checkered over-the-knee socks shown below. And shipping is free!
You'll love browsing their site.
Tip: Consider wearing your over-the-knee socks over nude stockings or colored tights, for extra warmth.
Another versatile way to keep warm for less is with hats.
The Angelina Crocheted Beanie below is from Delias, and it's only $14.50.
A hat and a long-sleeved tee or sweater will take your summer jeans into fall.
This red top is from Forever 21 and it's a whopping $4.80!
Here's a turtleneck for even more warmth, and it's at Forever 21 for $12.90.
Tip: Wear a long-sleeved top or turtleneck under your summer dresses with tights and boots to bring them into fall.
One thing you're going to need as it starts to rain and snow are a pair of warm boots.
Why not go vegan and try these Press Black Pleather Biker Boots for $54.95? Save money while you save the planet!
If you're more of a heels girl, try these Madden Girl Singerr Black Pleather Slouch Boots for $63.95. Great with your summer skinny jeans on rainy days!
Of course, every girl wants a new coat for the winter. Alloy.com is currently having a sale on all outerwear -- 20% off.

And not to forget Delias.com, which is also featuring 20% off all outerwear.

And if you don't have the money for an expensive coat, don't forget vintage shops, thrift stores, and resale boutiques when it comes to finding a good, warm winter coat.
Lots of them carry gently worn, and even super-fabulous-one-of-a-kind, coats, sweaters, and accessories. --Fashion Girl
