Summer is over and the temperature has dropped, but that doesn't mean you need to change your entire wardrobe.
Transitioning your outfits from summer to fall is a simple process, in which layering is essential. Don't worry. You can still wear your favorite dress or skirt throughout the year. Just add leggings or tights to keep warm. Already made the switch to trousers? Then sport a cardigan or sweater over your summer blouses.
Feel free to incorporate accessories, which can make an impact on your outfit and make it appropriate for the fall. Try different scarves and hats to see what looks best. Most importantly, don't forget to put on a nice pair of boots to polish off the entire look.

Discovered by Bio Sculpture Gel educator Terri Silacci of Monterey, California, recent sightings of the snakeskin pedicure have been traced to Midtown East, New York City. (Note: Equally intricate faux versions have also migrated east.)
Thin sheets of ethically sourced (and sanitized) skin are fitted to individual nails, which have been coated with the no-chip, flexible gel. A clear UV formula then seals the molten scales into place.
There are 170 possible hue-and-accent color combinations, though the midnight blue base with cappuccino latticework is a well-known stunner.
The meticulous treatment takes roughly two-plus hours to fully mature. Once applied, the toenail variety can last up to eight weeks (due to exposure, finger types typically reach only one or two).
At $100 for faux and $250 for real, would you ever get the snakeskin treatment?

At this point, New York Fashion Week's just a blur of bright colors, front-row CW stars, and FiberOne bars (they were being given out by the dozens). Since it'll be months until the styles show up in stores, we decided to focus on something we can have right now: the beauty trends originating backstage.
Hair at Erin Fetherston
Fetherston's show inspired us to try '60s era hair that will make you feel elegant.
Makeup at Timo Weiland
We don't encourage anyone to get a sunburn (in fact, we are SPF junkies). But if anyone could make a case for faking one, it'd be makeup artist James Boehmer. After he was done with them, the models at Weiland's show looked like they had just hopped off surfboards.
Hair at Rebecca MinkoffRead More »from The Newest Beauty Trends from Fashion Week
