August is notorious for being one of the most difficult months to dress for. In most areas, the temperatures are still warm, but more & more fall arrivals are hitting stores every day. I’ve found the easiest way to navigate the in-between season shift is to incorporate darker colors & add rich textures like velvet or suede. This helps give your outfits a transitional, less summery feel while still dressing appropriately for the current weather. Below I’ve created 6 looks for different occasions and climates + everything you see here is just $30 or less. If you’re looking to stock up on denim for the new season, Target is offering B1G1 50% off all Mossimo jeans, Express has all women’s jeans marked down to $39.90 & American Eagle is offering 25% off 2 pairs, 30% off 3 pairs or 35% off 4 pairs on all jeans & joggers!
