It's fall, so that means it's time for pumpkin spice lattes, hay rides, and – in Southern California –heat waves!

While summer ends in the rest of the country, SoCal tends to get hot weather.

When your friends elsewhere are donning their sweaters, what are you going wear?

Michelle Dalton Tyree from Fashion Trends Daily has her advice on how to dress cool even if it's not cool outside.

  • Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day. Even better: you can keep the rays away with white jeans, which are back in style.
  • Culottes are back! It's the perfect seasonless item that's neither a short nor a pant. But ladies be warned: in informal polls, guys are not a fan of culottes.
  • The shirt dress was in during the spring and summer, so keep giving yours a life by wearing it into the fall.
  • For guys, it may be blazing hot out but blazers are a good office style. They are formal enough to wear around coworkers, but flexible enough to leave at your desk when you head out into the sun for the rest of the day.
