What’s a better way to revamp an outfit you’ve grown a bit tired of than buying a new belt? Specifically, a purple one like this wide elastic zipper belt from American Apparel ($20). Purple’s looking like my fave color right now. As much as I love the neon orange trend that was in full swing this summer, the summer’s wrapping up, and I have to find ways to transition into fall in a way that won’t break my heart.

If, for some reason, you forgot that tonight marks the return of the best show on television (although really there’s no excuse for that!), allow me to remind you: The bitch is back, baby! I’m talking about season 3 of Gossip Girl, of course. And in honor of Leighton Meester, the coolest chick on the CW, I just have to get a new headband.

OK, I know this is a little unconventional and may not look great on everyone but isn’t it so sweet? I love the pale pink color, elegant scallop detail and hook and eye closure. I can see myself wearing this ASOS blouse ($40, asos.com) with high-waist skirts and pants—or, if I hit the gym (super hard) with some low-rise denim to show off a hard won flat belly.

Animal print is everywhere this fall, and though I'm not one to follow trends, this simple leopard merino ocelot cardigan from J. Crew ($88, jcrew.com) made me want to jump on the bandwagon. Not only can you add a little flavor to your work wear, but also the simple cut and wool fabric make it perfect for layering as the wetaher cools down. Tap into your inner Jane and be queen of the jungle ... at least for a day.

There’s nothing I love more than skinny jeans and tall boots when the weather gets cool. These jeans by Madewell 1937 ($69.50), a sister store to J.Crew, come in the perfect wash—referred to as "chimney"—and can be unique and flattering when worn with the right accessories. From biker chick cool to downtown hipster, try on whatever persona this funky denim inspires.

You know how you can never find just the right jacket to put on with that little black dress? Well, this tailored tuxedo blazer by Aryn K ($82), with it’s satin finished collar and cuffs, is a perfect compliment to a night out on the town. It may seem a little over the top, but imagine its versatility. Paired with jeans, a plain white tank, killer heels and a long medallion, you’re destined to stop traffic.

I’ll take summer over any season, but there is a certain joy that comes with chilly weather and the need to sport cute sweaters and boots. I found these rockin’ Jessica Fembot over–the–knee boots ($99.95) that offer a hot fall trend at a great price.
