Note: I made this at 1 AM and was a bit lazy, so I just decided to use a Polyvore set. Although it still offers some great tips! Follow me, RoseyGal16!

Lace dresses were one of the biggest trends this summer. However, why would we want them collected dust until next summer? Here are some ways to make your dress more autumn appropriate. Do one or more of these trends to make the look even better!
1. Add dark colored tights. The tights can be black, brown, plum, dark red, or any other color that compliments the color of your dress.
2. Wear a blazer or open trench coat over it for a more formal look. It will also keep you warmer!
3. Wear a scarf with your dress! Depending on the style, this might not work. For bright colors, softening it down with a scarf will look great!
4. Closed toed shoes! Oxfords will immediately make your look more autumn-y, and you can even wear riding boots, or something like them, for a more edgy look!
The key is to soften the dress down with accessories that make your look work with the season! 
Peter Pan tops are becoming HUGE this year. They are the latest fashion craze, and here are some examples of cute ones!
This top is available at Delia's for $30, and is my favorite Peter Pan top so far. I would pair it with a pair of white jeans to bring out the collar and polka dots, or some colored jeans to add a pop of color. Put sneakers with it (navy for a preppy look) to be totally chic and comfortable!
This dress by Urban Outfitters features a black collar and the dress itself is white lace. It costs $39. I think the best way to wear this dress for the fall would be with black tights and riding boots. Add a sweater or blazer over the dress and your outfit is complete!
This $18 shirt from Forever 21 is really adorable! The best way to wear this for the fall would be a shirt or shorts in a dark color. Add some knee high socks and some oxfords, and then put your hair in a braid or side ponytail for a finished look!
This is a new trend I have spotted a lot of women wearing recently... boyfriend jeans!
These jeans are unlike other jeans. They have pretty much no shape to them, with a totally relaxed fit. They are called "boyfriend" jeans because they essentially look like guy's jeans.
You can wear these jeans with a white t shirt for a casual look, or even dress up the jeans and turn them into high fashion.
