Although it’s still the summer season, retailers have begun to bring in their pre-fall stock. This is the perfect chance to find your transitional ┬ápieces because pre-fall merchandise is not your full on cold-weather items. It’s the lightweight items that you can use to layer when the temperature begins to drop. You’ll also begin to see previews of fall 2017 fashion trends like this red jumpsuit!
