The braid

Braids are the best thing to happen to hair since, well, ever. They project a style that is both sexy and low maintenance — a rare breed indeed. The options are endless — spend five minutes on Pinterest and you’ll figure that out. Whether you choose a waterfall braid, a head-band braid, a fishtail braid or just a side braid, get as much use out of this late summer hairstyle as you can.

These must-have wedges are the perfect way to kick up your heels and celebrate the end of summer. Red? Check. Unbelievably sexy? Double check. Looks good with everything? Oh yeah. These be-the-envy-of-your-peers peeps are available at Forever 21 for $15.

Tasha Painted Floral Scarf


Flowers are not just for spring anymore. As long as the sun is shining and the air is warm, it’s perfectly acceptable to rock floral prints. This scarf says, “You know what? I’m kind of tired of super-hot weather and almost ready for fall, but not quite.” Make that statement with this “Tasha Painted Floral Scarf,” $39 at Nordstrom.

Plaid shirt

Plaid shirt

Late summer is a time to get mad for plaid. This light fabric adds just a hint of fall, but still looks great tied at the waist over a bathing suit top with shorts. When it cools off, layer this look and pair it with those jeans that have been collecting dust all summer. Find this at Target for $20.
