August is such an interesting month. While it’s still undeniably summer, the crisp mornings and chilled evening air hint at the season that lies not far ahead. Suddenly, without even realizing it, you find yourself reaching for a light jacket on your way out the door in the morning, just in case, or stuffing a sweater in your bag before going out for the night. Those necessary little layers sneak themselves in.
August is the perfect time to add a transitional element to your wardrobe, whether it be a soft and comforting flannel, a loose-knit sweater, or a cool pair of boots. After wearing summer dresses, cut offs, and sandals all season, a small touch of fall can make your summer style feel completely refreshed. Need a little inspiration? Today we’re sharing what we’re loving this month, from shaggy sweater coats, to the perfect pair of boots.
“After wearing sandals all summer I’m excited to get a new pair of boots; for the first time, I want a pair of over the knee boots. I’ve never been drawn to them before, but this year I’m really loving how they look styled with shorts and lots of layers up top – perfect for fall.” — Julia
“I’m all about statement jackets. I love wearing something simple, like boyfriend jeans and a cropped white tee, then layering on something a bit more bold like the Faithful Shaggy Jacket. The solid color makes it versaitile, while still adding a lot of drama to the look. The shag is so cozy for fall too!” — Jana
As for me? I’ve fallen head over heels for the Border Print Bell Bottoms. The oxblood and black pattern undeniably invokes autumn, while the lightweight material is still breezy and summer-friendly. I’ll wear them now styled with a loose and flowing tank, and later with a big, cozy sweater and boots.
