Must Haves: 10 Pairs Of Versatile Fall-Ready Shorts

Ah, don’t you just love that weird in-between-seasons weather when it’s too hot to wear pants and too unpredictable/chance of rain-y to bust out the sundresses? Yeah, me neither. With humidity, precipitation, and grey skies hanging in the air, it’s hard to get excited about leaving the house, let alone putting on the clothes required to do so. That’s where fall shorts (in heavier fabrics and darker colors than your typical summer pair) come in — they’re the best of both worlds! They offer prime leg ventilation while still providing the comfort and wind protection factor (WPF) that skirts can’t, and they can be worn in today’s hyper-humid weather as well as tomorrow’s (maybe) cooler breeze: just add tights! Plus, you can dress ‘em up easily. Check out these ten pairs of fall-ready shorts that have already made their way onto my wishlist…

Must Haves: 9 Faux Fur Pieces For Fall

If Fashion Week’s runways are any indication, you’ll be seeing a lot of fur on the streets this fall. Fur was everywhere — from Marc Jacobs, to Carven to Christopher Kane and more — and you’re bound to see lots more as the temperature goes down. Personally? I’m not huge fur fans (I mean, I’m vegan, after all). It’s horribly expensive and it involves killing animals. So if you like the look of fur, but don’t like the moral and wallet price, try faux fur. We’ve found nine pieces featuring faux fur that we think you’ll love as much as we do.

Must Haves: 10 Watches $150 And Under For Keeping Time In Style

When it comes to watches, my priority is not being on time — in fact, I’ve worn my fair share of broken vintage versions just for the look of them. I can’t be alone, right? (Or am I?) Regardless, I covet the hell out of gorgeous, brutally priced timepieces (whether they’re functioning or not). Rolex? Bulgari? Sign me up. Unfortunately, I don’t have the kind of budget that allows for $30,000 watches. That diamond and sapphire-studded leopard-face Cartier? I can’t have it, even though I want it. Luckily, there’s a world of watches out there, and there are tons that look believably rich, without the rich price tag. Check out my 10 picks for sweet watches at prices that won’t make your heart stop ticking.

Makeup Bag: 8 Essential Products For Holding On To Summer All Year Long

I hate to admit it, but the calendar doesn’t lie: September is approaching, and fast. It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for spring, which turned out to be practically nonexistent, before summer came on hot and heavy. I may be in the minority here, but I would take a gloriously sunny, breezy late-August or early-September day over the oppressive humidity of July. Don’t get me wrong — that doesn’t mean I’m not feeling the universal sadness that comes with the end of the summer, but I’m definitely looking forward to cooler, more jeans-appropriate weather. For those of you who take the end of the season just a little bit harder than I, I understand, and to make things a little easier for you I’ve rounded up a selection of products that will give you that summer lovin’ feeling all year long, or at least until the next time June rolls around.
