Labor Day Outfit Guide

With fall right around the corner, Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to debut trends from the upcoming season. Although we’ll miss summer, we’re excited about vintage vibes and heritage prints, so naturally, we had to pull some of our favorite fall pieces like suede clogs and plaid button downs. We love the carefree contrast that shorter summer hemlines bring to these looks. Your only job this weekend? Soak up the last days of summer.

Stay cool at picnics this weekend in a breezy embroidered peasant dress. Dress up your outfit with suede clogs, one of our favorite shoes from the upcoming season, and add a fringe crossbody bag and stacked necklaces for a boho vibe.
