It’s officially fall season. But before we say goodbye to the warm weather, here’s one last round of chic summer looks to check out and get inspiration from — straight from the top 10 bloggers we’ve handpicked for August.
This month’s selection is as much about the “total look” as it is about the bag being modeled by each style-savvy fashionista. If you’re still feeling the summer bug, feel free to try any of these blogger-styled outfits before moving on to layered fall-appropriate attires.
1. Marsha Campbell from London, England
Palm tree and floral prints can look sophisticated, too. Just make sure you pick structured pieces with clean silhouettes. Finish the attire with an equally structured handbag in a classic hue or in a color that complements your getup. Even better, pick one with a statement, like the piece from Zara below.

2. Sasa Zoe from Shanghai, China (based in New York)
Mid-thigh denim cutoffs can give your outfit a boyish spin, but make sure you polish it up with stunning high heels and an “it” bag. Add a dash of extra by wrapping a printed shirt around your waist.

3. Ewa Michalik from Wroclaw, Poland
Bucket bags and backpacks are back in style. Try a safari-inspired look by picking one that comes in brown suede. Go rustic by mixing it with separates in earthy hues — such as a chunky sweater, linen shorts, strappy flat sandals, and a rope-like bracelet. We’re super loving the outfit from Ewa below.

4. Anna Gotsyk from Bordeaux, France
Black-and-white outfits don’t have to look boring. Keep things sexy by showing bits of skin. Wear a crop top, and mix the piece with a short skater skirt. Spice things up with high heels and a simple but glam chain-detailed tote. Eeasy peasy, right?

5. Brittany Bao from Los Angeles, USA
Give your romantic lace dress a different flavor by adding a touch of funk and edge to it. Mix the frock with creepers and a studded and fringed bucket bag, and you’re all set. Not content with a combo? Try topping the look with a floppy hat.

6. Veronica Foregger from New York, USA
Can you rock fringes, ruffles, and floral print in one go?
We say, why not?! Keep things a little masculine, though. Go with floral-print pants and a ruffled top that comes in a simple silhouette. Finish with a fringed bag, and voila! You’re all set.
We’re taking this advice from filmmaker, graphic designer, and blogger Veronica Foregger of Fancy to Go.
7. Paulina Baglaj from Warsaw, Poland
Give your black-and-white attire a refreshing twist by mixing it with a boldly printed purse, such as a zebra or striped handbag like the ones below. How do you like this blogger’s style?

8. Mystery Blogger from Izmir, Turkey
We don’t know her name, but we love her fashion sense. Aside from bold prints, one other quick way to spice up a black-and-white outfit is by infusing it with a splash of color, such as a poppy yellow bag. It’s a bold and statement-making accessory, so keep your separates simple in silhouette.

9. Nicoleta Parascan from Sibiu, Romania
Light neutrals can look exceptionally immaculate and beautiful when paired with shots of tan and navy. Try this ballerina-inspired ensemble from Nicoleta. Wear a beige trench coat over nude flats and a fit-and-flare frock in the same hue. Finish things off with a bun, dark eyewear, and a colorblock tote in navy and tan.

10. Kristina P. from Bucharest, Romania
How do you do sporty, edgy, and boho in one go?
Try this look from Kristina. You’ll need your best-fitting boyfriend jeans, a striped shirt, a kimono, and your cutest pair of Nike trainers. Cap off with dark eyewear and a studded bucket bag to seal the deal. Looks quite exciting. Would you agree?
