Annie Ladino's top 4 picks to transition you to fall

Because August and September are the best months for women’s clothing sales online, we asked our Chief Stylist Annie Ladino what summer items to snap up now–at a major discount, natch–and how to transition them to fall. Here are her top four faves:

Colored shorts:“Shorts are perfect for any occasion — from office to evening – year round. To style them for the cooler months, pair with fall colors like maroon, grey, or black blazer and boots.”colored shortsTibi shorts | By Malene Birger shorts*
Linen pants:“Linen is NOT just for summer! You can wear your fave pieces through the fall by switching out summer sandals for a short bootie, and replacing your tank with a cropped sweater.”linen pantsVanessa bruno pants | Jones New York pants
Open toe shoes:“No need to put away open toe shoes just because it’s a bit cooler; just fall-icize the look by adding a colored or printed tight.”open toe shoesStella McCartney pumps | Nine West pumps
White After Labor Day:
