If you’re this close to packing up your bikini bottoms, hold it right there! The dog days of summer aren’t over yet. Have you seen the weather forecast this week? It’s not exactly sweater weather. This time of year calls for trans-seasonal pieces that will go the extra mile for you. Below, we’ve rounded up seven end-of-summer dresses you can wear during afternoons that are hot and nights that are, well, not.
Kariella Safari Dress, $58
Kariella Gianna Maxi, $102
Polka dots were spotted everywhere this summer from Carolina Herrera to Jason Wu. Carry this classic pattern into the holiday season with opaque tights and power pumps.
Kariella Charlotte Dress, $102
Do you want to hear a secret? This is one of my favorite dresses in the shop right now! Top it off with a jean jacket and you’ll get two seasons for the price of one. Does it get any better?
Kariella Amelia Dress, $62
If there’s one color that really speaks to the autumn season, it’s persimmon. Throw on a chunky sweater and Huarache flats and you’ll be as good as gold for a couple more months.
Free People Caldasi Midi, $128
Darkly romantic perennials were blooming on the fall runways of just about every major designer of note. Gucci served up gardens with a side of goth; Saint Laurent harkened back to 80s flower power; and Michael Kors gave us a little bit of everything. But the universal theme was clear: Bolder is better!
Kariella Dynasty Maxi, $78
