Summer’s over, but that doesn’t mean that dressing like it’s summer (i.e., wicker bags, nude dresses and nautical trends) has to fully come to a halt. It’s a confusing time for most of the country — will it be 90 degrees or 50 degrees? — and it’s never really clear when it’s really time to switch your wardrobe out.

You might not have to, thanks to this genius solution from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She’s taken a gauzy, thin and low-cut top and turned it into a killer transitional look with the addition of a scarf in fall hues — but she’s tucked it into the blouse. This is an amazing solution to getting mileage out of tops you’re not ready to part with just yet, and keeps your summer vibes going while you wait for the weather to make up its mind. Double the outfits! Here’s how to get the look.


Keep your groovy, Coachella-esque vibe going straight through September with this breezy silk blouse and fringed bandana scarf. The flared jeans and booties bring a ‘70s casual feeling to the outfit, and a studded cross-body bag helps you cart around all your stuff.

Here’s a great way to add some modesty to a low-cut dress to make it work for the office — tuck that scarf in! It’ll cover you up, and help you extend the life of your going-out clothes. Work-appropriate yet stylish heels will get you through the day, while textured accessories can take you from day to night in a snap.

Date night doesn’t mean that you have to be super sexy all the time. Take one of your low-cut rompers from the summer and add a printed, artistic scarf for a totally new look. Metallic earrings and a bright red clutch help bring out your feisty, flirty personality.
