    >> we have special ladies to help us through this. first model is beth . she's doing to help us transition her dress from summer to fall.

    >> beth actually loved wearing this summer dress all season long. it has those nautical stripes, nautical rope tie waist. what i did here was all ant layering, layering, layering. long sleeve t-shirt. the dress is over the long sleeve tee. the crop jacket here with faux fur , faux suede, mixed material jacket. that is from lesters.com and under $100, which is great. then, of course, this long chain necklace which is really on trend for the season. the cropped body bag which we're still seeing a lot of. you can wear this long or you can wear it as a clutch. double duty there. that is patricia nash at dill dillard dillard's.com. and mary jane here. those are aerosoles for $99. the stylest are comfortable.

    >> comfortable. looks great. you transitioned that well. the nauticals can still work for you if you have the right layering piece on top.

    >> thank you, beth .

    >> next, we have a picture before of our model christie with this colorful silk tank top which she wore really well through the summer . now let's see how christie is showing off her new look. come on out.

    >> great.

    >> how did you style her?

    >> in the summer she wore this with a white billowy skirt. here for fall, layer cashmere over cashmere. this is $89 exclusively on ideal ideally.com. it doesn't have to cost a fortune. i love experimenting in the fall with heather grays, charcoal grays instead of black.

    >> too basic.

    >> yeah. a little lighter. and then a great boyfriend jean rolled up. that's a really hot style right now. you can roll up your own jeans. those are from jp penny.

    >> the wedge shoes, of course. and then you want to finish it off with a great rich textured bag. this is suede. it's from avon. you can get that at avon.com. and then, of course, the chain detail on the bag which is lady like, classic, and timeless.

    >> you look wonderful as well. thank you so much. next, the summer tank or rather the skirt. we have a model rolly with us in a lightweight cotton skirt. now, more so in the fall. i love this look.

    >> yeah. so these are rally incorporating some of the biggest trends from the runways. but the polka dot , the black and white , the bow tie blouse. that's from bloomingdales, that blouse.

    >> i love the belt.

    >> the belt is from jc penneys , it's only $20. accents in red are really big. but a lot of women don't feel comfortable wearing red so do it with a purse, a bag issue. that is missoni for target. big designer collaboration.
