As summer transitions into fall and the temperature cools, the inevitable wardrobe shift begins. You’ll likely start to shuffle your denim shorts and linen dresses to the back of your closet in favor of a light cardigan or sweater. Retailers and designers are taking notice of the change in seasons, too, as the fashion news for August is filled with new autumnal drops from brands and cool collaborations geared towards fall weather.

Marc Jacobs and Levi’s, for example, are focused on bringing nostalgia into Fall 2022 as each label has added revamped versions of their archival designs into their latest collections. Jacobs, for starters, launched the re-edition of its Classic Q Collection. The designer then tapped longtime friend and muse Kim Gordon, who first modeled for the brand in 1998, and her daughter Coco Moore to showcase the refreshed bags in new ads. Levi’s doubled down on the ‘90s with its fresh iterations of vintage-inspired overalls, loose-fitting denim, and oversized denim jackets. Sandy Liang, meanwhile, debuted its first-ever bridal line — just in time to inspire brides for fall.
