Is it summer? Not really. But is it fall? Not if you step outside. When the sun is up, it’s hot and sticky; when it sets, the temperature drops and you desperately need a jacket. If you’re confused about how to dress for this moody weather, join the club. Scroll ahead for eight items of foolproof layers to get you through October and take you into winter, if it ever decides to show up.
A Timeless Striped Shirt
J.Crew Striped Top
There are a thousand iterations of the striped top, but J.Crew’s is the best because the material never loses its shape. See that boat neckline? It will never droop, no matter how many times you wash it.
Tie this around your waist when you’re outside, then pop it on at work to ward off the office’s permanently blasting the AC. Wear it with wide-legged pants now, and once winter comes, layer it over a bodysuit with high-waisted jeans.
