Style Cheat Sheet: Summer Classics to Rock Year-Round
Dear summer, please don’t leave. (If you wish hard enough, it might just stay.) Although September may have a cooler forecast in store, nothing’s stopping you from rocking your most-loved summer pieces through to next year. Here are four timeless picks to wear now, layer for fall, and jet-set with this winter – all to your heart’s content.
1. Strappy Sandals
The one item reserved for warm days? Sandals. And this nude pair will truly go with everything. Grab these now, and keep them on hand as easy-to-pack essentials when the Caribbean is calling.
2. Bright White Shoulder Bag
White just looks better in the sun. With a classic shoulder stap and minimalist detailing, this number will always be in style, at home or overseas. Plus, winter whites are always a do.
3. Striped Dress
Trends may come and go, but stripes are forever. As the unofficial print of summer, this sweetheart strapless dress is ideal for those last few sticky weeks of August – and just as appropriate on that winter getaway to Mexico. Pair it with booties and a leather jacket for even more mileage this fall.
4. Printed Shorts
So much more than go-to cutoffs, these tropical patterned shorts have summer written all over them. Rock these now with a tank and into early September with a sweater. And they’ll be the first thing your reach for come that south-of-the-border escape.
