While we hate to be the bearers of bad news, summer is officially coming to a close. The silver lining? Fall fashion is just around the corner.

Expect bright looks, bold styles and a big dose of nostalgia. From Prada to Alexander McQueen, we’ve pulled together a list of the key buys for autumn that’ll see you through the season in style. You’re welcome.

Decked out with silver-toned hardware and designed in a unique cape shape, it’s the ultimate elevated touch. Let’s ride.
