Getting dressed in the morning because a little more daunting in September. Summer is winding down, but cooler temperatures have yet to set in. You can’t break out your heavy knits or boots, but the dresses and blouses you purchased in July leave you uninspired… Now what?
Fortunately, there is a solution for your inter-seasonal woes: the straight into fall pieces for your wardrobe.
The trick is to invest in staples that can be worn on their own now, then layered in the months to come. Below are my favorite essentials that you should definitely pick up this fall.
The Cropped Trouser. Shredded knees by J Brand and raw, cropped hems grunge up the pristine look of low-rise skinny jeans in an optic white wash.
The Dark Denim Staple. A clean, classic AG denim jacket in a medium wash makes for a versatile closet staple.
The Dress Made for Layering. You’d be hard-pressed to find an occasion where this Lafayette 148 dress wouldn’t fit in perfectly, thanks to its effortless shift silhouette and fashion-forward split bell sleeves detailed with silky ties.
The Lightweight Knit. Pure Vince cashmere knit brings a decadently soft and cozy feel to a slouchy drop-shoulder pullover with a vented step hem.
The Transitional Coat. A snap-off hood from Barbour and roomy hand-warmer pockets enhance the utility appeal and weather protection of a lightweight rain jacket durably constructed with a breathable waterproof shell. The practical style gets a sweet note from a floral print peeking out the placket and turn-back cuffs.
The Wear Anywhere Blouse. Embroidered metallic blooms shimmer against the midnight-black silk of a luxe Italian blouse by Etro.
