Now that it’s officially the end of summer, we need to start putting away all our swim suits, caftans and flip-flops. September is always a tricky month when it comes to dressing…the weather is still warm but you don’t want to walk around sporting your summer look. To make life easier, we put together some of the best transitional dressing must-haves for Fall:
Tailored Blazer by Adam, $89
Adam is known for his fabulous basics and a tailored boyfriend blazer like this one is the perfect Fall staple! The longer cut looks great with skinny jeans, leggings or shift dresses. It has a nice fit and you will never tire of the classic style. It’s hard to believe you can get this kind of quality for the price. I just purchased this blazer myself and will surely live in it. Check out my OpenSky video for more details!
Haute Hippie Draped Jersey Dress, $375
This chic jersey dress from Haute Hippie is right on trend for Fall with the burgundy color and wrap draping. It is universally flattering on all figures too! Pair with a blazer for work and ditch it at night for cocktails. A great replacement for your LWD.
Rachel Comey Utility Clutch
Growing up, I spent every weekend in the mountains, at the beach, or hiking in the woods, trying to figure out how to work a compass and picking the M&Ms out of trail mix. As I developed my love for fashion, my hobbies shifted towards collecting issues of Vogue and heading to the mall with my mom. Today, I combine these two sides of me by wearing my mom’s L.L. Bean anorak from the ‘70s with skinny jeans and heels or Clarks Desert Boots with a feminine dress. With her spring collection, Rachel Comey has girls like me in mind. Her new clutches feature her signature artistic patterns with hiking-inspired leather detailing. I’m struggling trying to choose a favorite. I’m thinking green. Thoughts?—Elizabeth Monson

Santa’s satchel will look so last year when compared to this simply stylish minaudiere by R&Y Augousti. The raised python texture is perfectly complimented by the subdued bronze coloring.
