Summer is almost coming to an end, before you start bundling up for the cold Syracuse winter, get your last round of summer shopping in. One good thing about the end of summer is the endless sales. From Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale to Zara’s Midseason sale, there are more excuses to fill your shopping basket than ever.

Below are the items we are adding to our shopping cart ASAP.

1. Gingham Mini Dress – Urban Outfitters

This dress is right on track with the gingham trend that we have been seeing all summer. Also, the square neck line and thin straps make it versatile enough for a day out with your friends and a night out.

2. Mini Denim Skirt – Madewell

Denim skirts are a summer staple and are perfect for transitioning into fall with a sweater and boots. The two-tone on this skirt adds a classic, yet fun element. Since we are limited to a college budget, this skirt is a great item you can dress up or down.

3. Suede Slides – Steve Madden


Slides have been killing it in the summer shoe department this season. These Steve Madden slip-ons are the perfect stylish and comfy shoe to wear from now until the fall. The rose pink color is right on trend and adds the perfect pop of color. Also, the ruffle detail adds a fun element. Don’t worry if you are a minimalist, these shoes are still simple enough to pair with an all black ensemble.

4. Embroidered Dress – Zara

This blue embroidered dress screams beach vibes, and that’s exactly how we would wear it. Take this dress from the beach to dinner, and pair it with some sandals or espadrilles.

5. Flare Jeans – BDG Urban Outfitters

Two jean trends from the past are back in style: flare and high-waisted. These BDG jeans combine both trends. In a medium wash, these jeans are neutral enough to wear with a t-shirt and a going out top. Plus, the crop is a great way to show off your summer sandals!

6. Double Hoop Earrings – Vanessa Mooney

Hoop earrings are a staple accessory in every girl’s wardrobe. But these double hoop earrings will set you apart from every other girl wearing typical hoop earrings at DJ’s or Harry’s. The extra detail is simple, but will make you stand out in a crowd.

7. Espadrilles – Castañer

These espadrilles have shown up on the feet of every street style star. Straight from the streets of Spain, these shoes are the perfect combination between comfortable, stylish and neutral. Dress these Spanish shoes up or down, but either way you’ll be right on trend.

8. White Skinny Jeans – BDG Urban Outfitters

No girl can ever own enough white jeans. They are a must for any summer wardrobe! The subtle slits at the knees and frayed bottoms make these white jeans a little edgier.

9. Red Denim Skirt – Zara

Talk about a statement piece. This bright red skirt is perfect to wear into the fall and is a fun addition to your closet. The frayed touches add a fun edge to this already edgy skirt.

Summer isn't over yet! So, before heading back to the Syracuse tundra, buy these warm-weather pieces you'll want to wear on repeat for the rest of the season.
