As summer takes its last gasp, there's an upside: it's finally time to dip into the new fall clothes. That doesn't mean you have to shove your gauzy skirts and denim shorts into the corner of your closet; simply mix in a few fresh pieces. Take a cue from Annaila from Montreal, who topped off a lace shift with a draped brown blazer. Or Alicia from Berlin, who paired white sandals and shorts with a long sleeve knit. Stylist Elisa Nalin illustrates how to wear a heavy tweed skirt in mild temperatures — just add a lacy pink top, a yellow blazer, and satin sandals. Click through to see all of these looks and more in our late summer street style breakdown.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
