Those of us who love fall know that it’s not just about the leaves changing color and the return of the PSL — it’s also when we dig out all the winter clothing we’ve stowed away for the last few months.

But one of the biggest challenges of transitioning from summer into fall is making last year’s wardrobe look fresh again. We spotted the perfect solution on the Fall 2016 runways of designers Dries Van Noten, Mulberry, and Rochas: Layer your long-sleeve button-up shirts under your summer dresses. Of course, the shirt-under-dress look isn’t completely new — it was major in the ’90s, and we spotted SJP, Kendall Jenner and more layering tees and sweaters under dresses way back in May. But using a button-up shirt instead of a tee makes the look a little more elevated and unexpected, not to mention a lot more fall-appropriate.

It’s the ultimate win-win: extra warmth for the fall weather and a fresh look without spending a dime. Click ahead to see how to incorporate the look into your own wardrobe.
