What to wear if the weather change is lagging behind your seasonal style shift.
Though September signifies a mental shift from summer to fall, the seasonal temperature change often operates on a lag behind that schedule, especially if you live in warmer parts of the country. We're ready to show progression in our style choices, but a chunky knit is simply not going to fly in mid-September. The task then becomes to find clothes that look like fall but don't necessarily feel like fall. Opt for pieces like loose-fitting trousers, lightweight knitwear, boxy cotton shirts, and vests that you can start wearing now and keep in rotation all season. In terms of styling, if one piece provides more coverage, ease off on the other, i.e., tanks and pants, shorts, and long sleeves. Below, shop our edit of lightweight fall staples to buy and actually wear now.
