While the temperature reached the high eighties this weekend, that doesn’t mean it’s not time to start building your fall wardrobe up now. In fact, we’ve already got our eye on a surefire fall essential: The red blazer. While we were all about bright rouge pants for spring and summer, a red jacket is the smartest investment for the transitional season. Paired with some adorable white jeans, a flirty floral dress, or a black mini-skirt—like L.A.-based stylist Amy Bernstein did just last week—this is an effortless way to help get your summer style prepped for fall. Just remember to toss on a pair of lace-up nude sandals, a flowing white tank, and some bright blue nail polish, and you'll be one step closer to nailing this fall-ready look!
