What to wear while you wait for autumn

1c4e5d811d28b15a0cf4db75a7f80d41

If it’s not the office air conditioner that’s on the fritz, it’s the climate. Highs near 70 one minute and temps barely hitting the 50s the next makes getting dressed in the morning a bit tricky. So you’re not that girl in the puffer jacket while everyone else is in button-downs, we found the perfect pieces to rock while you wait for a proper fall to show up.


Scarves
Easily shoved into your bag when inside or when the sun comes out to play, scarves also instantly snaz up a blah outfit.
Loft, Color Pop Animal Print scarf, $35, www.loft.com


Blazers

Face it — it’s hard to wear blazers under down jackets. Take advantage of the warmer temps and rock this sophisticated piece with just about anything right now — jeans, printed dresses, sweatpants, whatever. Topshop Ponte Rolled Sleeve blazer, $70, www.topshop.com


Cute socks
It’s not quite time for full-on leggings, but with bare legs, you risk feeling the chill. The solution: Knee-high socks, which will keep you just warm enough. Wear them with your heels to extend the life of summer sandals. DKNY Modern Diamond Knee High, $10, DKNY?stores


Cropped pants
These ’60s-inspired pants keep you cool when it’s warm (not to mention they look killer with heels or sandals). They look just as appropriate and chic with four layers and a jacket thrown on.  J.Crew Collection Cafe Capri in silk scarf foulard, $298, www.jcrew.com


Cardigans

Stashed at your desk, they were your best friend all summer long while combating the arctic office temperature. Now, a cardi keeps you cozy outdoors until full-on jacket weather finally arrives.
Gap, Cashmere Open Front Cardigan, $128, www.gap.com
