Their favorite summer t-shirts can be worn over long sleeved shirts or under a zip up hoodie. Walmart’s Faded Glory reversible hoodies can be a two for one with a solid side and a printed side to match any summer tee.
Long shorts like bermuda shorts and summer capris can be worn with wool tights, boots and a jacket for a cool weather sassy equestrian look. This is a great fall look that is expected to be big this coming fall and winter.
Some summer tank tops like the basic ribbed ones can be layered over long sleeved button up tops as a sweater vest for a preppy look. Other tank tops can be paired with a cardigan or jean jacket to bring them into fall.
Summer skirts even the shorter ones can be worn with a sweater or turtleneck and leggings

Knee socks can be worn in place of tights and come in many cute patterns and colors. Boots transition any summer look into fall instantly and can be cute in ankle, mid calf and knee high. Hats whether they are the knitted stocking type or a newsboy cap will give any style a polished look.
Some summer items do need to be put away until next year. Trade those flip flops in for cute ballet flats.

The short shorts also have to be stowed away even with tights these are not school appropriate.
