We’ve had a beautiful September so far and I’ve been wearing dresses and sandals in the warm weather. But it’s going to cool down this week which means a switch to jeans. Since it will still be sunny, white jeans are the perfect transitional piece and can be worn after Labor Day. Just see how Vogue editor Tonne Goodman styles her white jeans year round. I’ve used her as inspiration for how you can wear your white jeans straight through the fall.

This belted double-breasted wool and cashmere-blend coat is the perfect light transitional coat for the first hint of fall weather.

I can’t imagine Tonne Goodman ever wearing a patchwork wool sweater like this one but the point of being inspired by someone is to put your own spin on their style and not to copy it exactly.

If you’re looking for a new straighter style white jean, these white high-rise slim-leg jeans are a great option.

Tonne Goodman is fond of flat loafers and these caramel suede Khaite Loafers are a lovely color for fall. The square toe means your feet will be comfortable too.

Tonne loves a tote and I could totally picture her carrying this Khaite Envelope Pleat medium leather tote.

I’m thinking of changing up my sunglasses to a rounder style like these Celine round-frame tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses.

I’ve never seen Tonne Goodman wear a grey coat but it’s my go to color for fall and winter. This belted wool and cashmere-blend coat is another perfect transitional option.

I’m looking forward to wearing this grey Heidi Wynne Fair Isle Sweater when it gets colder this fall.

If you still can’t give up your skinny jeans, these white mid-rise skinny jeans are for you.

I love the plum shade of these Calfskin Leather Ballerina Flats.

This medium intrecciato leather bag is the perfect cross between a handbag and a tote.

Get a jump on winter with this cashmere beanie, scarf and gloves set which will probably be sold out by the time you need it.

I had a blue coat with black leather sleeves from Barney’s that I wore for years until it was on its last legs. I’ve been looking for something to replace it and I just ordered this toggle coat in Italian fall blanket wool.

You can never go wrong with the Naadam $75 cashmere sweater in navy or any other color. I own quite a few of their sweaters and love them all.

The AYR Bomb Pop Jeans are getting great reviews so why not try them in white as well as blue.

I have these Khaite x Adidas Sneakers in black but I may have to buy the navy pair for fall too.

To offset all the navy, I’d add a pop of color with this Celine Triomphe Bag in raspberry. It’s a great color for fall.

Tonne wears a lot of scarves so I’d tuck this optical-print silk-twill scarf.

Tonne is fond of navy and black jackets so I’d wear this double-breasted wool suit jacket with white jeans for dinner out in the city.

A Silk Button-Down Shirt under a blazer is another great way to transition to cooler temperatures.

These high-rise wide-leg jeans are perfect for dressing up.

I’m still not ready to wear heels again so I’d wear these black suede tapered-toe flats.

This Manhattan small leather shoulder bag can also be converted to a clutch which makes it the perfect day to night bag.

It’s going to be scarf season soon and I wear Heidi Wynne cashmere scarves when the weather cools off.

This Quilted Coat is perfect for apple picking in the country or a weekend in the city. I also like this army green quilted jacket too.

This Honeycomb cashmere rollneck sweater sold out fast last winter so I’d get it before it’s gone.

These white classic straight jeans are on sale. I keep my cut hems from fraying further with Fray Check.

We’re all still walking a lot in New York and wearing sneakers. These Cypress Sneakers would be a nice upgrade for fall.

Tonne has a large Hermes Garden Party Tote for travel but this Hermes Garden Party Tote is the best size for every day.

When it’s not quite as sunny in the fall but you still need some protection, these Ray-Bay Aviators would be perfect.

Happy Shopping and Happy Fall!
