August Essentials: Transitional Pieces To Wear Into Fall And Beyond

Buy now, wear now—and later! The Fashion Office builds a strong case for key pieces that will serve you well from the present season to the next.

Though we’re enjoying our summer days of laying poolside, late-night BBQs, and weekend trips to the beach, fall is just around the corner and we can’t help but be excited about what that means for our wardrobe. Now that it’s summer’s last hurrah, it’s time to start buying key pieces that will help us make the transition from the warm days of August into the cooler days approaching. Here, our Fashion Office has selected versatile pieces like lightweight scarves, cropped denim, and varsity bombers that will stay on rotation for months to come.
