WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim studded vest
WHY: Yes, it's hot outside. We're suffering, too. But darlings, please don't let your wardrobe go the way of tanks and flip-flops toujours! There are ways to stay chic (and cool!) sans excessive AC, and this 3.1 Phillip Lim vest is step one. Layer it over a gauzy tee or light sundress, and voilà: instant upgrade, without the weight. Hang in there...fall isn't far!

WHAT: Miriam Haskell European glass stone and natural bone necklace
WHY: Our long-running love affair with the statement necklace has led us to this Miriam Haskell masterpiece--our new summer must-have. From the bright, summery color palette to the floral motif to the larger-than-life size (our favorite part!), we can't wait to layer this over a simple ensemble...and let it do all the talking.

WHAT: Thomas Wylde buckled-up leather boots
WHY: We know what you're thinking: it's 85 degrees and oh-so-humid outside. How can you even think of sporting boots now? But darlings, we can't help it--with such a chic pair as these, how can you not start planning your fall wardrobe? They're perfectly beat-up and triple buckled for that tough-chick vibe, and we can't wait to tuck in our skinniest stovepipes and top them with an equally bad-ass motorcycle jacket. Impatient? Try them now with a floaty, liberty print floral dress to rough up a sweet summer look.

WHAT: Jerome Dreyfuss' Gilbert bag
WHY: If the it-bag phenom has you feeling fatigue--like it has for the last three years--then indulge yourself in this suede confection from French designer Jerome Dreyfuss. Fall's hautest style from this actress-favorite designer is classic schoolgirl. The saturated bright plum color provides a fresh take on a chicly understated classique.
