August weather runs the gamut from blazing late summer heat to hinting at the cooler months ahead. No matter what the temperature is where you live, though, I expect we all have this in common: a sense of excited anticipation for the coming change of season. We designed our August dresses and jumpsuits to transition perfectly from summer to fall, thanks to a rich color palette, luxe textures, and styles that fit into both seasons beautifully. Read on for our favorite ways to bridge the seasons, while looking effortlessly elegant every single day!
Solids as Neutral
Solid-colored styles in classic fall colors create the perfect backdrop for an array of accessories, or can be styled simply for a timeless look. Our Antonia dress is made of a soft corduroy fabric that adds the prettiest texture to its burgundy hue.
Forever my favorite alternative to dresses, jumpsuits look polished and chic in every season. For the ultimate transitional piece, opt for a sleeveless style like our Kierra jumpsuit. Its cropped pants and crisp ruffles beat the August heat while also nodding to the tailoring I love for fall.
Especially paired with a favorite pair of tall boots, maxis extend dress-wearing season all the way into winter. With a tiered hem, subtle jacquard, and ruffled details, Cassandra is one of the maxis I’m most looking forward to styling this season.
Autumn and plaid go hand in hand--almost no pattern evokes such rich seasonal memories as much as this one does! We incorporated a handful of fresh takes on plaid into this month’s collection, including the mulberry and camel plaid of the tie-neck Lindsey dress.
