If, like us, you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, we’ve rounded up some style inspiration to help you segue into September. Whether you’re incorporating another layer or diversifying your color palette, get a jumpstart on fall’s biggest trends without packing away your summer wardrobe.
From lizard to leopard, animal prints will be everywhere this fall. Pair printed trousers or skirts with summer staples like a linen tee and a straw hat now, then swap in a chunky sweater and boots when the temperatures start to drop.
Eschew the breezier hemlines of mid-summer in favor of longer silhouettes which walked a multitude of runways for Fall 2018. Start by adding a robe or long cardigan to your off-duty ensembles to ward off the evening chill.
Cooler temperatures call for more somber hues, particularly when inclement weather starts to rear its ugly head. Try a moody floral or stick to a monochromatic hue, just be sure to add a little extra flair with accessories like a gleaming belt or a head-turning bag.
Summer calls for loud jewelry, like fringe earrings and lucite bangles. We love the anything-goes mentality but when it comes time to get back into the grind we reach for more simple, timeless pieces. Stash your statement pieces in favor of delicate styles like stacking rings and whisper-thin chain necklaces that are far more versatile.
