Double Duty Beach Attire That You Can Wear Through Fall

Don't pack away your sarong just yet.

If you're anything like us, saying goodbye to the sunshine is no easy task. In addition to parting with warm weather and sun-kissed skin, it also means packing away our cute crop tops and summer dresses (unless you're a resilient French girl) in exchange for cozy knits. But it's not over yet, there is still time to hit the beach, and you may as well hit it in style.

But, as the heat waves wane, curating any outfit for end-of-season events can present a challenge. This period of transitional weather can be tricky to dress for, meaning you need to be on high-alert if you're making any new purchases when the forecasts are fickle: versatility, practicality and longevity are all things to consider for late-summer supplies. There's no point investing in an of-the-moment ruffle mini skirt if you can only wear it once before having to pack it away for hibernation.

If you're planning any late-August seaside adventures, we suggest you think about how your cover-ups can double-up for fall: pick up a simple sarong that you can transform into a scarf come October. Style your button-down midi over jeans (ideally, OTT embellished ones) for a chic autumnal outfit. Layer your kimono under a trench coat when the weather takes a turn for an extra layer of warmth – and not to mention a much-appreciated pop of color to any moody fall look.
