Le sigh, how is it already August? We’ve got a few more weekends until white denim is officially retired and we’re switching out our denim cut-offs for light knit sweaters in our ever-precious closet space.
We’re hanging on to the last few fleeting moments of summer romance with bright colors (think coral, teal, canary yellow) in easy breezy fabrics and transitional midi lengths.
Below are our top picks for the August Fashion Menu:
Off the shoulder dresses are all the rage this summer—we’re opting for a little coral number from ASOS to transition from summer to fall. Pair with a scarf, luggage-colored sandals, and a leather handbag for a season-less look.
Shift dresses are a wardrobe staple for any season, and this J. Crew Sleeveless Geo Lace Sheath is no exception. NYC Social Bitch Ann Louise loves the bright coral color, and how the dress can be worn as-is for the end of summer or paired with a chic blazer during fall.
Chicago Social Bitch Amber is ready to transition to cooler weather with the silky vintage wash dress in bright coral. Pair it with fringed suede boots and gold jewelry for an easy wear-to-work, then happy hour style.
NYC editor Ally is embracing her inner 90’s child with this funky denim midi skirt by Madewell. Throw on some comfy slides or gladiators during the final weeks of summer and then the piece looks just as good with fall booties.
DC Social Bitch Annie loves a good pair of destructed light-wash jeans to transition her summer staples to fall. These Treasure&Bond boyfriends are perfect for a casual weekend around the city and can go with sandals or booties.
Chicago Baby Bitch Jacqueline is going bold and wearing white up until Labor Day (and a little after). Rules are made to be broken. She’s wearing Lavish Alice’s bandeau body-conscious midi dress at the remaining summer soirees for just enough coverage on cooler nights.
No time to shower before brunch? We’ve all been there. Amber’s trick this month is paring the wool Brixton ‘Dalila Hat’ with boyfriend jeans and a white tank for a casual, chic look.
Cori Sue ordered this amazing, 60s-inspired straw bag from Cult Gaia, which she’ll be rockin with a bright turban and a romper for much of August.
Ann Louise has been rocking her Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in White Pearl all summer long. It’s a perfect every day piece that can easily transition from her summer wardrobe to her picks for fall.
Channel those late-summer sunsets with this Marble Garland Brooch Collar in coral from BaubleBar. Annie loves pairing it with a simple beige tee.
Jacqueline’s keeping her feet happy at Cardio Bollywood with a pop of color in cc sonic sneakers by adidas by Stella McCartney in hot coral. Got to work off those mimosas and waffles somehow.
Just because temperatures may be gradually cooling off doesn’t mean your lip color has to. Ann Louise swears by MAC’s Mineralize Lipstick in “Fashion Trip” – the bold, coral hue adds a pop of color to her more subdued statement pieces for fall.
Annie swears by this St. Tropez One Night Only face and body tanning lotion for that perfect sun-kissed glow – even after Labor Day weekend.
Part of Jacqueline’s low-maintenance routine involves Fresh’s sugar lip treatment sunscreen SPF in sugar coral tinted, which adds a burst of color and protects her lips year round. She can’t complain.
Ally is loving butter LONDON‘s recent nail polish collaboration with Allure, particularly the “Statement Piece” shade. It’s a zippy coral color with a tint of orange that makes anyone look infinitely more tan.
