August is a tricky month when it comes to getting dressed. If you’re anything like us, you’re probably getting pretty tired of your summer wardrobe and eager to start shopping for fall, even though the weather is still warm. So we’ve come up with 5 pieces that will satisfy your urge to shop — and are versatile enough to wear now and when it gets colder!
A little leather skirt is a wardrobe staple. Piperlime ($69)
Now: Beat the heat with a thin tank top or striped tee.
Later: Let the layering begin! Dress it up with a blouse and blazer, or for a more relaxed feel pair it with a chunky knit sweater. Tights take this piece all the way through December.
A pair of slouchy crepe pants can be dressed up or down and will last you for seasons to come. Rag & Bone Easier Pants ($290)
Now: A sleeveless blouse and flat sandals give these crepe pants a casual summer feel.
Later: A structured blazer, leather top or knit sweater will cozy up the pants for fall. Ankle booties or pointy toe pumps complete the look.
A little floral dress is wearable far past the summer months. ASOS ($67.88)
Now: Take advantage of warm weather and simple dressing — rock this dress on its own with your favorite pair of sandals.
Later: Toughen up the look with a little leather jacket and booties.
Lace is a big trend for fall, but you can wear it now too! DAY Birger ($250)
Now: Pair this sexy top with cut off denim shorts and a simple black heel for a great late-summer date look.
Later: The options are endless — wear it with a fluted pencil skirt, leather trousers or your best boyfriend jeans.
We can’t wait to rock a denim skirt this fall, and this sleek pencil version is universally flattering. J.Crew ($268)
Now: Dress it down with a tee and flat sandals.
Later: Wear a structured blouse, lace-up booties and a swipe of red lipstick.
