Ready or not, fall is in the air. TZR editors are already bringing up the arrival of pumpkin spice lattes in meetings (it is a hotly debated subject for the team, but we won’t get into that today). Meanwhile, this past week, the Copenhagen Spring/Summer 2024 fashion week street style was full of incredible chilly-weather outfits, including plenty of leather jackets and fuzzy accents. Luxury designers, too, are gearing up for the new season as autumn collections have begun hitting the market. And that’s not all: All the August fashion news, which we’re laying out for you below, is sure to get you excited for fall.
If your denim rotation is in dire need of an upgrade, you’re in luck: Madewell teamed up with celebrity stylist Molly Dickson, whose clientele includes the likes of Camila Mendes and Sydney Sweeney, for an exclusive denim collection. Available today, the 12-piece line capsule, priced from $82 to $178, features everything from miniskirts to slouchy cargo jeans. Want to amp up the true blues? Consider some funky accessories, such as the jelly bags and shoes from TELFAR and Melissa’s latest drop of its TELLY JELLY collection. Or, for a dressier take on your fall looks, gather inspiration from Pandora’s latest campaign with its newest global brand ambassador, Ashley Park. The imagery shows the Joyride actor wearing sparkly jewelry with a dazzling dress, but the pieces would look just as amazing with a casual off-duty look.
