Autumn has officially arrived. It may not feel like it with temperatures still reaching 90 degrees and no red or orange leaves in sight, but Halloween is right around the corner and it is time to start pulling out sweaters and tights.

Unlike other climates, fall is tricky in Arizona. Back to school in most places means pulling out scarfs and jeans; summer seems to stick around here as long as it can.
My collection of warm-weather clothing outnumbers my cold-weather clothing drastically. Being an Arizona resident and fashion fanatic since 2-years-old, I have developed some tricks in incorporating fall into summertime clothing. Here are a few things you can add to your summertime wardrobe to make it ready for fall.
1. Knee-high socks and tights
Wear knee-high socks and tights with your favorite dresses and shorts. Layer the two together for a cute effect or wear them separately. This season, unique tights are in style with ones with patterns. Experimenting will be easier from the broader range to choose from.
A simple scarf can add some fall flare to any outfit. There are hundreds of different ways you can knot them, so get creative here. Again, be daring in patterns as they can be a key part to any outfit this season.
Ankle boots are super in style this autumn. Find the perfect pair to wear during daytime with just about anything. For nighttime, knee-high boots are in for this season. Wear them with a pair of skinny jeans or a skirt.
Layer light button ups and sweaters over tank-tops or dresses!
