Now that it’s officially the end of summer, we need to start putting away all our swim suits, caftans and flip-flops. September is always a tricky month when it comes to dressing…the weather is still warm but you don’t want to walk around sporting your summer look. To make life easier, we put together some of the best transitional dressing must-haves for Fall:
Tailored Blazer by Adam, $89
Adam is known for his fabulous basics and a tailored boyfriend blazer like this one is the perfect Fall staple! The longer cut looks great with skinny jeans, leggings or shift dresses. It has a nice fit and you will never tire of the classic style. It’s hard to believe you can get this kind of quality for the price. I just purchased this blazer myself and will surely live in it. Check out my OpenSky video for more details!
Haute Hippie Draped Jersey Dress, $375
This chic jersey dress from Haute Hippie is right on trend for Fall with the burgundy color and wrap draping. It is universally flattering on all figures too! Pair with a blazer for work and ditch it at night for cocktails. A great replacement for your LWD.
Sunglasses serve many purposes; makeshift headband, hiding from the paparazzi, discreetly checking out people’s outfits or disguising the morning after raccoon eyes. But of course, their real purpose is to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays! Before you head outside this season, how about you update your look with a chic new pair? Check out our fave picks and you’ll have it made in the shade.
eyebobs iris, $75-99
These oversized retro round shades are inspired by fashion Icon Iris Apfel and are available in polarized or sun readers (perfect for beach reading!). Plus, a portion of the proceeds go to a charity helping those with vision loss. Love the quirky mix of red and print!
AJ Morgan Dobie, $19.99
Pastels are huge for summer, so this matte, yellowish wayfarer is a trendy take on a classic shape. Try a colored pair of shades if your someone whose wardrobe consists of a lot of black.
Neon Trim Aviators by Rough Justice, $110
Another major color trend this season is neon. The subtle trim on these always-in-style aviators is so now. Plus, they look great on all face shapes and are the perfect pair to update your boho chic summer look.
J. Crew Cutler and Gross Round sunglasses, $495
Handmade in Italy, this British brand has collaborated with J. Crew for super unique and stylish shades. This chunky, eccentric silhouette might just make people wonder if you’re famous….Madonna and Sir Elton John have been spotted in Cutler and Gross.
Norma Kamali Movie Star Zyl Frame, $98
Appropriately called movie star, this timeless shape is reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Channel your inner Holly Golightly with these black shades — the shape is flattering on many different faces.
ICU Eyewear Cat Eye, $21.95
Old Hollywood is back! Arguably the most glamorous sunwear silhouette, the cat eye is for a girl who isn’t afraid to stand out. Or, if you can never seem to choose between black or tortoise sunnies, this pair is a perfect blend.
JACK SPADE “Ludovic” at Selima Optique, $385
Jack Spade’s collaboration with luxury eyewear brand Selima Optique is handmade in France. This tortoise pair has a sleek silhouette that’s a great go-to for any summer outfit.

Are you protecting your eyes this summer with fashionable shades? Summer is finally here so don’t leave home without your favorite pair of chic sunglasses! Today is National Sunglasses Day and PageDaily is here to the rescue to make sure you have that go-to, can’t-leave-the-house-without -‘em, pair of shades that will protect your eyes and keep you looking fabulous.
It is super important to protect your eye area from the harmful UV rays to keep you looking youthful. According to dermatologists, the skin around your eyes is most often the first place to show deep wrinkles due to squinting, so you definitely want to keep your sunglasses on whenever you’re out!
My all-time favorite pair of sunglasses is the Ray-Ban Aviators. These aviators are perfect for all different face shapes, which means they will look great on anyone! The lenses are polarized green and the frame is gold, which really makes them pop. This pair of Ray-Ban aviators is truly a great accessory for any look you’re going for this summer. I also like the silver frames depending on what you are wearing.
Check out a few other favorite picks for this summer!
As the Creative Director of PageDaily, I review so many amazing fashion items every day. I love curating the high-low to provide women with real value (or offer a selection to those who want to splurge)! Here are my favorites for summer:
BEACH COVERUPS Get summer chic with cover ups! The stylish sheer white fabrics and loose flowing sleeves are perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit for poolside or beachside fun. The one size fits all lightweight Love Quotes – Shiva Versatile Top/Coverup was recently seen on Halle Berry and has a huge celebrity following. Or, you can opt to rock the animal print trend with Top Shop’s Off White Animal Print Cover Up . Both of these can also be worn as tops with a cami underneath.
GIRLY CARDIGANS Add some flair to your basic white cardigans. The lightweight and soft Augden Deauville Ruffle Cardigan is adorned with two rows of washed silk ruffles. Launched in the fall of 2010, the Augden collection comprises of handcrafted sweaters that are handmade and knit from the finest and purest fabrics with remarkable attention to details. I also love draped cardigans such as the long sleeved Chelsea & Theodore Wrap Cardigan from Dillard’s. The romantic tiered ruffles along the open front of the cardigan are perfect with any summer outfit. When the sun goes down and the weather gets a bit chilly, you can’t go wrong with either of these two versatile cardigans that will keep you warm and looking fabulous.
FUN FEDORAS Top off an outfit with a fun fedora. Melissa Odabash’s Panama Hat, also seen on Cameron Diaz is a perfect choice to keep you in the shade while sipping cocktails by the pool. Melissa Odabash is known for her laid-back yet refined swimwear looks and of course, her hats have that same whimsicality. This one looks great on everyone. With mark’s Fierce Fedora you will also be “brimming with style.” Each fedora comes with three interchangeable bands in coral, black, and navy floral. Avon mark’s brand ambassador and Twilight actress, Ashley Greene was seen wearing the Fierce Fedora at the Coachella Music Festival. You can’t go wrong with either one.
CLASSIC AVIATORS Brave the luminous sun with ultra-cool aviators. Keep your eyes protected with distinguished titanium and leather frames from MODO for Jennifer Creel Aviators. These are the most gorgeous aviators. I love the white stitching detail and perfectly shaped tinted lenses. Urban Outfitters Classic Metal Aviator Sunglasses are a traditional aviator, always in style, and look good on everyone–I wear mine year in and year out!
BEACH BAGS Stay fashionable this summer with the amazingly stylish yet casual Mulberry Beach Tote Pink Trippy Tiger Print Raffia. The tote bag has two adjustable leather handles to easily carry everything you need for having fun in the sun. It is so gorgeous and chic–I like it as a day bag too. Another favorite for hitting the beach and town is the sturdy and lightweight American Apparel Large Denim Carry-All Bag in white. The newest edition to American Apparel’s accessory collection features a large easy to carry weekend bag made with leather accents and double shoulder straps.
GLADIATOR SANDALS Multi-strap leather sandals are perfect for summer. There’s nothing better than slipping on a pair of sandals and displaying impeccably pedicured toes. The Balenciaga gladiator inspired Multi-Strap Sandals are sophisticated, sexy and fun. Balenciaga’s flat open toe multi-strap sandals with contrast leather details and adjustable ankle straps have an attention-grabbing appeal that will look fantastic with mini-skirts, sun dresses and shorts. Gap Women’s Colorblock Sandals are so on-trend and great staples to have in your shoe collection this summer—they are comfortable, as well as a great value.
