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:**“Break the old rule, and you’ll expand your fall wardrobe.  White is a hot trend year round…especially in accessories.”white after labor dayAlexander wang tote | Stuart Weitzman flats | Rebecca Minkoff bag
