I Shop All Day for a Living—These Are the Coolest Things I've Seen This Month

We’ve officially made it to the end of August—a bittersweet moment if you ask me! As we say goodbye to summer, pause to wonder where in the world it went, and then welcome fall, the only thing we can do is look forward to the new season with as much optimism and excitement as possible. Luckily, from a shopping standpoint, that’s not the hardest thing to do. Not only is fall widely regarded as the best season for fashion but, as always, it feels like brands and designers (both big and small) are continuing to outdo themselves year after year, and much to our benefit.

That must be why this month’s roundup feels like it came together more easily than ever. While working on other stories over the last thirty or so days, I found myself constantly bookmarking cool and interesting pieces for the months ahead that simply stood out and deserved a place in today’s post. From fun colors to trendy details to new twists on old staples, just keep scrolling to see and shop every item that caught my eye this August—all forty-one of them—and prepare to get excited for what's to come.

The fact that this is a skort just makes it so much better.

It's obvious why Instagram girls love this By Far bag.

What to wear with all your trousers this season.

How to make every outfit instantly cuter.

You'll never feel too casual in this tee.

Sculptural is always a good descriptor.

I love how this black net bag can work in any season.

I've never seen a Totême item I don't instantly want.

Feel like you're in a sweatshirt, look like you're in a blouse.

You'll be really happy you bought this come fall.

This color puts an instant smile on my face.

This feels like Staud's most sophisticated bag yet.

Are you ok? Because I most certainly am not.

I'm convinced that Amina Muaddi couldn't make a boring shoe if she tried.

This trench also converts into both a dress and a shorter jacket—how's that for cool?

I'm definitely copying this layered look.

I might have to snag these pants while I not-so-patiently wait for the matching top to come in stock.
