Of course we shop in August, we just shop wisely. Bear in mind, the end of the month marks a transitional season and the eventual start of Fashion Week. That means we're searching for stylish pieces lightweight enough for those final walks on the beach and versatile enough to layer later on. Fresh "It" items, must-have dress and shirt silhouettes, and accessories we've been eyeing forever all made the cut this time. Read on for our lust-worthy picks.

"My main goal for the rest of Summer? Keep things as simple and easy as possible, especially when it comes to footwear. So I'm ditching my lace-up options for Everlane's The Slide Sandal ($98), the perfect no-fuss shoe to slip on and rock with everything." — Samantha Sutton, assistant editor, Fashion

"A slouchy sweater I can live in with white jeans through September is on my short list of perfect pieces. There's nothing better than finding a knit with just the right amount of give that hangs effortlessly on your body, plus this Tibi sweater ($395) comes with a subtly sexy cutout." — Hannah Weil McKinley, senior editor, Fashion

"I've been eyeing this Sarah's Bag clutch ($582) for the longest time, and not just because the brand and I share the same name. Everyone knows that mermaids are my spirit animal and I totally love a cocktail on the beach. I'd wear this year round, but there's no buy more appropriate for hanging onto Summer a little longer." — Sarah Wasilak, editor, Fashion

"My sneaker obsession knows no bounds. Now I've fallen for the bright color and brilliant design of these Allbirds wool runners ($95). I love that they're new and smart, and mostly, that they're not exactly what everyone else is wearing." — HWM

"Thanks to Gigi Hadid, monogram clothing has found a place in everyone's closets this Summer. While the model prefers a bomber or leather piece, I am lusting after the Rails denim jacket ($275)." — Marina Liao, editorial assistant

"Drop earrings are a power woman favorite, which means it's time to replace my everyday studs with Alexis Bittar's Encrusted Spear Earring With Infinity Wire ($175) — at least on occasion." — SS

"Chloé just rolled out its boho-inspired Carlina sunglasses ($326) in a limited edition 18k gold, available in boutiques this month. But that's not the only detail that makes them covetable. I'm pretty smitten by the free-spirited quote that accompanies your package upon arrival." — SW

"Wearing Fall clothes in the middle of Summer may sound silly to some, but when a dress is as cute as this throw-on-and-go sweater dress from Finders Keepers ($150), how can I resist?" — SS

"While I normally don't wear belts, when I spotted the Bri Bri Belt ($148), it instantly reminded me of the one Kendall Jenner wore. My high-waisted denim shorts always felt like they were missing something and this accessory will solve the problem." — ML

"Have a wedding coming up? No biggie. Why not just design your dress — and at an affordable price. Fame and Partners just launched a customizable line with fashion-forward, daytime silhouettes you'll actually go to bed dreaming about. My select? The Cenit Two Piece ($379), which I’ll wear to an October wedding in Florida when it's still warm." — SW

"Missguided's Drop Armhole Bodysuit ($24) is the same concept as the side-boob swimsuit only I'll be able to wear anywhere, not just by the pool. Plus, it's the perfect piece to help me embrace my new braless lifestyle." — SS

"Why decide between a choker and a long chain? Stella McCartney's sleek design ($485) combines both beautifully and simply. No bells and whistles, just a wear-anywhere piece that'll complement breezy dresses, and even your favorite jeans and t-shirts." — HWM

"Put me in anything silky and I will drift off to a peaceful sleep. This satin cami and shorts set ($43) is my trick to staying cool in bed for Summer. The lightweight fabric won't cling to your body and it looks sexy too." — ML

"You can tell me the Reformation Mesa pant ($178) is boring, but just check out that frill at the bottom. In a flattering black shade, I can already tell the high-waist silhouette will give my booty a boost. Plus, these are cropped perfectly for my petite frame." — SW

"I love white t-shirts and this one from Pixie Market ($78) is especially unique — just check out the back. The ribbon bow gives the otherwise plain top that special touch. Consider this piece already part of my weekly rotation." — ML

"The contemporary classics from new label La Ligne are all wardrobe essentials, but this month, I'm eyeing the easy, elegant Pipeline pants ($275) to style with silky tanks in the office for the rest of Summer." — HWM

"Denim skirts may be having a moment, but I'm not a big fan of distressed and frayed styles, which could come across as juvenile. Instead, I'm adding McGuire's Marino denim skirt ($220) to my cart, aka the polished and adult way to embrace the trend." — SS

"Dear Frances is a supermodel footwear staple. But while Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid rock their mid-calf, I'm a fan of the Float ($495). The Chelsea silhouette is unbelievably versatile, and I'm into the wood and lucite combination heel." — SW

"Sticking true to its minimalist style, Mansur Gavriel has come out with a new collection dubbed the Mini Sun Bag ($595). The crossbody accessory is the perfect size for holding all your basic necessities, and I'm predicting this will sell out as quickly as the brand's iconic bucket bags." — ML
