Sorry, Lana Del Rey – there’s no summertime sadness here. After seeing what’s in store for fashion this fall, we’re more than ready for the change of seasons. So ready, in fact, that we’re already stocking up on four of this autumn’s must-have pieces.
1. The Essential Leather Jacket
Leather jackets have been around forever. But this season, you don’t have to go all rocker-chic to add one to your closet. (Especially with alternatives to the jet-black we’re used to seeing.) Warm and stylish, this addition can be paired with lace for a girly twist or even thrown over your favorite summer maxi. Talk about transitional fashion.
2. A Pair of High-Waisted Jeans
Still hesitant about the high-waisted denim trend? We promise – you won’t look like your mom (no offense, Ma). Simply put, these jeans elevate every look. And an added bonus: those summertime crop-tops don’t have to be packed away anymore.
3. Some Lug Soles
Groundbreaking. Earth-shattering. Well, not literally – we hope. But it is clunky-chic. Whether with a thick sole or a stacked heel, these boots are bound to make a statement. (Prada knows best, after all.)
4. One Cashmere Cape
Move over, Superman. If Valentino and Isabel Marant say so, then it must be true: the cape is making its triumphant return this season. And we’re not complaining. Pair it with those ankle boots and the high-waisted denim we mentioned earlier, and boom – outfit game-changer.
Our First Look: Pre-Fall Style for Women & Men Boutique opens Friday, August 2, at 11AM ET.
