As the summer season begins to shift, so must our wardrobe.

Transitioning some of our favourite warm weather clothes into fall is a way of not letting go of summer. You can easily create a summer-to-fall wardrobe by mixing pieces for an updated autumn look. Remember, summer is not quite over yet, and September will have some beautiful warm days.  Which means a few more week-ends enjoying the outdoor fun on a patio, in a park or by a pool.

However, when the cool winds show up and if you're not quite ready to say, "Farewell summer, hello fall!" here are some of our suggestions:

- Layering is the easiest trick to transitioning. A jean jacket or cropped leather jacket over a printed strapless dress or maxi skirt.

- Pairing a slouchy sweater over lightweight pants.  The sweater also looks good over those sexy summer shorts worn with opaque tights.

- Scarves and wraps. Everything looks good with a bold scarf.  It's a smart accessory for pre-fall.

- Booties. Yes, we all love booties.  And they look great with a long flowy dress this time of year.  Actually, booties will look great with everything suggested here!

Below are two looks that showcase a stylish mix that will work for the month of September.

The Raffinee Summer Sale has been extended and there are still some great pieces to be had!  When you come in to see the new arrivals of fall clothing and accessories (below are two looks to wet your appetite), be sure to browse through our fast-shrinking sale section.  Enjoy the last days of summer!
