Not ready to shelve exposed shoulders for the season? A long-sleeve top with strategically placed cutouts lets you enjoy summer’s biggest trend straight into an early autumn night. If you’re heading out on a date, play up the style’s romantic appeal with a ruffled red skirt and strappy heels; dark wash kick flares and Vans take it to a low-key brunch the next day. As for jewelry, stick to subtle gold pieces—your bare neckline is statement enough!
