Elysian’s favorite finds can be worn well into autumn.
The days are getting shorter. Night is coming earlier. And the calendar insists that September is just beyond the setting sun. But before we get too forlorn about summer’s end, we must remember that it also marks the start of autumn. Falling leaves, the hush of children back in school, the exuberance of halloween, and the joy of getting reacquainted with your wardrobe. Yep, now that the weather will be cooling off, it’s time to get back into proper clothes, and frankly, we can’t wait. To get you ready for fall, we’ve hunted down the hottest end-of-summer sales and pulled our favorite looks which will take you well into autumn.
