We all know that September is often the hottest month of the year. Still, with fall mags urging us to bust out the boots and dust off those moto jackets, sometimes we can't help but jump the sartorial gun.

Our strategy is to have a perfect stash of shawls and scarves, ready to wrap around our necks or double as a makeshift blanket at an outdoor event. We're also collecting capes and cardis for battling the surge of indoor air-conditioning we can't seem to avoid. No matter your plan of attack, those temps don't stand a chance against these 14 chic cover-ups!
