Our swan song to summer, Labor Day serves as an opportunity to reimagine the warm-weather staples we’ve worn on repeat—but with a transitional spin. As we officially welcome fall, we’re giving our sandals and straw bags their final moment in the spotlight, balancing denim cutoffs with cozy knits and adding layers to outfits grounded in swimwear. So before fully embracing fall fashion, celebrate Labor Day weekend in style by considering these six fashion-girl outfits ahead. You probably haven’t thought of them yet—inspiration abounds.
