Every season has its signature pieces — spring with its pastels and florals, fall with its chunky sweaters, winter's stylish outerwear and this summer's broad spectrum of trends ranging from oh-so-chic bathing suits to full thrown knits and tweeds, even in the sweltering streets. As we enter the final leg of summer (before the brisk weather begins the creep in), versatile pieces like rompers, culottes and maxi dresses will come into major play as they can be easily transitioned from statement summer wear into essential elemental layers for fall. Monochromatic colors will not only be a hit for the coming seasons, but flattering to the figure as well, with its slimming and lengthening effects. Boho will explore its chic side and find greater refinement as temps drop. If there's any last-minute threads to invest in, these are the ones that will last you well into the new year! MONOCHROME Black and white outfits (or outfits of just one color) have always been a favorite of mine. The subtlety of this trend emits elegance and style without giving the notion that you are trying too hard. Photo Credits: Hillary B., Richy Koll, Valerie Brems. BOHO-CHIC Channeling your inner bohemian has become a favorite look for the summer months. This natural, raw look is perfect for any warm-weather venture!

They’ll keep you cool while adding an extra flair to your outfit — a feature that always gets a trend into my top five. Photo Credits: Leonie Hanne, Elif Filyos, Yulia Sidorenko. ROMPERS Comfortable and stylish, rompers make your dressing decisions simple — one piece that acts as both top and bottom. Need I say more?

With its versatile use, it’s a great staple for both summer and fall! Photo Credits: Kristina Dolinskaya, Queen Horsfall.
