Right now, you should be thinking about “transitional” pieces — stuff you can wear during these last sultry summer days all the way through the often-quite-warm months of September and early October. This high-waisted, pleated skirt from Uniqlo is a perfect summer-to-fall, work-appropriate option that you can wear with, say, a billowy blouse, a little mock-neck number, or even just a simple white T-shirt. Added bonus: It has an elastic waist. And it comes in a pale pink as well as an autumnal olive.
