Instant Style: Late Summer Trends

Chelsea Savage Moss

As the hazy days of late summer approach, we’ve recapped the most prominent trends of the season. Local retailers are reporting that warm days in September will likely delay stocking sweaters until later in the fall. So while you’re thinking about the cooler days of autumn, there’s still ample opportunity to wear any of these hot looks.

Maaria’s ’90s style is not limited to summer. Her graphic tee, designer fanny pack, boots and high-waisted jeans culminate in the ideal throwback look.

Paperbag-style, high-waisted shorts have been everywhere this summer. They’re flattering and comfortable, but also dress up a basic top. Recreate Stacey’s look and add a denim jacket if it gets too chilly.

Meagan’s leopard midi skirt is a great, cool piece that will transition into cold weather while still maintaining perfect style. Add a black top and tights and you’ll be ready for winter, too.
