I'm well aware it's only mid-summer, but pre-fall merchandise are already in stores-- beautifully and seductively displayed at retailers' windows. You are probably not mentally ready to end your summers early, and that's ok. Though, it doesn't hurt to know what's hot for pre-fall, which usually is a good forecast for what's also next for the fall/winter season. Slouchy luxe sweaters, split skirts, sporty jackets, crop tops are all big trends coming up, so I've decided to put two outfits together based on the same trends.
These "desk to dinner" outfits are exactly as they are titled, you can mix and match for both work and play. The aesthetic of the 2 are the same. There is one indisputable difference, the price point-- a splurge vs. steal. Can you which is which? Remember, looks can be deceiving (especially in pictures), just look at this previous post and its comments.
