The 6 Looks That Will

Make You Excited for Fall

The sun is setting earlier, our beachy waves aren’t beachy anymore, and the other day, you reached for a cable knit. The time between late summer and early fall can turn even the most self-assured among us into philosophers: Is the closet half full (hello, beloved turtlenecks) or half empty (where are all the dresses that aren’t backless?). Let it be both. Embrace the fifth season as an opportunity to play with texture and ease into moodier shades—without having to cover up entirely.
