Get It Now, Wear It Later

This is one of the most monotonous times of the year for anyone into fashion – it is too soon and probably too hot to start looking at fall pieces, but everything summery is beginning to look like old news. Transitioning between seasons can be downright dull.

On the other hand, now is when all the summer clothing and
accessories are being marked down (if the items you covet haven’t been
discounted yet, chances are they will be soon), so it is a great time to invest in pieces that will take you through fall. Just stick to neutrals or darker shades as well as season-less fabrics like jersey, silk, or rayon, because pastel or tropical shades and materials like linen tend to have a one-season shelf life.

Something charcoal with a flattering drape would definitely do the trick, such as this Graham and Spencer tunic dress
– it would be perfect with inky black or cobalt blue tights this fall,
and you could even wear it with gladiator sandals right now. This black
Loeffler Randall bomber jacket could also serve you
well immediately – throw it over a little top on chilly summer evenings
and wear it as a light jacket when the days turn cooler.
