Ultimate Fall Edit: Saks Fifth Avenue’s Best New Dresses, Boots, & Bags

August is a tricky time to get dressed. September issues and ad campaigns have us pining for leather, layers, and other new-season staples; yet, still-blazing temps conspire to keep us in the tees and cutoffs we've been sporting all summer (and, frankly, we're getting a little sick of them). What's a fall-fashion-loving girl to do?
Our favorite solution is a late-summer uniform of dresses, ankle boots, and a killer bag. The dress and booties keep your gams bare and cool, while the purse lets you indulge in all the exotic-skin, jewel-tone Fall looks you crave — and it won't raise your temp a bit!
