It may be hotter and more humid than ever right now, but our minds are already thinking of fall. No, no, we're not crazy—we don't want summer to end (we have many more beach days ahead of us). But the fall collections are just that good, and we can't help but want to wear them now. Rather than stepping out in a full cold-weather outfit (and, you know, sweating to death), we're showing you how to wear the best upcoming trends right now.
Keep scrolling to check out seven fall trends we adore, along with shopping tips on how to make each your own this summer.
Rather than going for a full-on printed dress, full-length boot, and jacket look, like Dior, try a pop of print on your go-to summer top or bag instead.
A floor-length, military-esque coat won't do in August—but a similar-style lightweight jacket or pair of shorts will.
Believe it or not, velvet (a fabric traditionally associated with the colder months) can work in the summer, in a sandals or sneaker iteration.
Try a pretty, light-colored hue in a matching set this summer!
While bucket bags and backpacks are still going strong, it's the ladylike top-handle silhouette that's reigning supreme for fall.
We know you're already rocking booties with your shorts and skirts, so try these fringe options rather than something standard.
We can't wait to wear chunky black-and-white sweaters when the leaves start changing, but for now, a similar dress will do.
