Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in NYCMJ Inspo Image

Now that we’re heading into mid September, we hate to remind you that summer is close to it’s end. It’s been a summer to remember filled with memories, festivals and great outfits! Although we have to say we’re totally a sucker for fall fashion, we just not ready to give up our favorite summer pieces just yet. So we’ve found five of summer’s hottest trends and how to transition them through the fall!

1. SNTF - Palazzo Pants for Fall

Palazzo Pants

Palazzo pants have been one of our top picks this summer for the office. The flowy cuts keep us cool on those hotter days and the length keeps us workplace appropriate. They’re also perfect for early fall with their coverage. Transition your palazzo pants with a fitted blazer in the fall for a tailored look with a little more coverage for the cooler days.

Shop the Look:

Pretty Little Things Bronze Basic Bralette, $10, available at Pretty Little Things

T by Alexander Wang Velvet Palazzo Pants, $334.64, available at Revolve

Balmain Double Breasted Blazer, $2495, available at SSENSE

Celine Tilda Sunglasses, $315, available at Otticanet

H&M Pointed Flats with Bow, $14.99, available at H&M

2. SNTF - Mules for fall


Mules have been a must-have for fashionistas everywhere for over a year now, and they were a must-have wardrobe staple and they’re still going strong! Worried about cold feet in the fall? Try rocking your favorite mules with a pair of socks or fishnets. Yes we said it, socks and sandals are the new cool (so tell your dad).

Shop the Look:

  • Levi’s Distressed High Rise Jeans, $107.93, available at Shopbop

3. SNTF - Maxi Dresses & Skirts for Fall

Maxi Dresses & Skirts

Not ready to put down your summer dresses and skirts? Don’t worry you don’t have to! Maxi dresses and skirts go great with denim or leather jackets and are perfect to keep you warm during the cooler mornings, and easy to remove after work. Plus we’re total suckers for an edgy feminine look!

4. SNTF - Tearaways for fall

Tear Aways

One style throwback we’ve been living for this summer is the tear away pant. A tomboy classic that’s now known for pairing perfectly with lace body suits, crop tops and heels took the summer by storm. Although practical for summer, their openness can be a bit chilly for fall. Keep the vibes going by pairing your tear aways with your favorite thigh-high boots to keep you warm for fall!

Slip Dress

A favorite for date nights, city roaming and everything in between, the slip dress is another classic throwback we fell for hard this summer! Convert this beat-the-heat piece into a fall go-to look by wearing it over your favorite t-shirt or turtleneck for the perfect model off-duty look!
