It may be time to put away your summer dresses and strappy sandals, but don’t despair! There are plenty of hot fall fashion looks to get excited about this season.
Casual and stylish day
You might not be naturally inclined to do as much walking about town in the fall as you were during the summer, but with hot styles like these, you could easily find yourself having a little extra motivation to get yourself out and about.
Print pants: With summer’s departure, you might not have as many occasions to show off your gams, but your legs can still be downright eye-catching with the help of a pair of trendy print pants such as these super-stretch trousers (hm.com, $25).
Flowy white top: Pair your eye-catching print pants with a simple top such as this lace inset high-low shirt (forever21.com, $24). The flowy fabric and peekaboo lace shoulders serve as a nice reminder that although it might be a little cooler, there’s still plenty of time before winter arrives.
