The fashion world may be looking toward fall (guilty), but there’s still quite a few weeks of summer left to enjoy. As one of the hottest months of the season, August is a great time to add those last few warm-weather pieces to your arsenal. You’ll get some good use out of them now and they’ll still feel fresh when you break them out next year. If these three items haven’t made their way into your closet yet, scoop them up now and rock them through to September – and beyond.

1. Striped Sandals
By now, your go-to sandals are probably on their last legs. Trade them for this modern yet totally timeless pair and every coordinating outfit will feel refreshed.

2. Cobalt Lace Dress
Summer is home to plenty of parties, and they don’t seem to be slowing down one bit. With 3/4-length sleeves and bright lace, this dress is ideal for starlit soirees. Plus, word on the street is that cobalt will be everywhere this fall. Add a pair of opaque tights and some booties for an instant year-round look.

3. Brushed Silk Skirt
Casual yet formal. Statement-making but goes with everything. This tie-waist skirt is an end-of-summer must. Tone it down for day with a tank and flat sandals. Or dress it up at night with wedges and a blouse. Keeping cool in those steamy temps has never looked better.
