If you’re sad to put away your white clothing as Labor Day approaches, Michelle has some good news. “That’s actually not true anymore,” she says about the old fashioned no-white rule. “The whole key is to tone it down. As long as you add in some dark colors, you can still wear them.”

In fact, Michele says many summer styles are still okay if you add in seasonally-appropriate elements. “If you have a maxi dress, edge it up a little with some leather,” she says. “Leather is a big thing for fall, so pair it with some of your summery skirts and it will look great.”

Michelle also says there’s one thing she’ll never leave the house without when the temperature starts to drop: a shawl. “Always carry a scarf,” she says. Not only will it warm you up, it will add an interesting element to your look. “A nice camel-colored one will go with anything.”
