Yes, it is August. Yes, it is sweltering. And yes, fall fashion has been in boutiques and department stores since mid-July. Summer clothing sales are in full air-conditioned mode, and our very loyal customers tell us they are “too hot, sweaty, and gross” to even hear us mention trying on clothing with long sleeves…BUT THEY DO. No one can resist the lure of fall fashion…the season in which designers showcase their best!
Transitional clothing need not be heavy. It should be able to take the heat in stride…especially those still-really-warm Septembers. Keep your heavy sweaters stored until the bitter end…these pieces are perfect for fall’s light layering!
…is spot-on impeccable for fall. This dress sports it all…on-trend block print in gorgeous shades of gray, short sleeves for warmer weather, and a body skimming A-line silhouette.
…still! I love fringe detail. It is simple yet creates a big impact on this sleeveless, tweed dress. The denim-colored tote adds a monochromatic flare while the classic pearl earrings juxtapose perfectly with the trendy fringe. When a chill fills the air, add tights, boots, and a sweater and you will be protected yet stylish for the cooler months ahead.
…or aubergine, or eggplant? Whatever you call this color (purple?) it is a fall staple and for good reason…it looks stunning on everyone! This dress is ingenious, a blank slate waiting for your personal touches. We paired it with one of our lariat necklaces as a belt! Include your own sense of style and be sure to tag Kiskadee!
