Diving head first into all of the shiny new fall clothes in stores isn't satisfying when it's still August and too warm to wear heavy coats, thick sweaters, or high boots. To satisfy the craving for something new, consider a graphic printed miniskirt in an autumn-friendly palette. For these last few days of balmy weather, they will refresh stale summer staples like loose tees and flat sandals. Come October, as the mornings grow chillier, add a motorcycle jacket and ankle boots. Take J.Crew's deep-green-and-navy striped skirt: When worn with a simple white tank and strappy brown sandals, it would be an ideal après-beach outfit. In a few weeks, a navy cable-knit crew-neck pullover and stacked-heel booties turn it into a go-to weekend brunch outfit. For those looking to mix up their wardrobe with prints more unusual than classic stripes, Christopher Kane has a non-military and sophisticated take on camouflage, while Kenzo has luxe-looking trompe l'oeil snakeskin pattern.
