I’m not going to act like late July is, at all, a normal time to shop for fall clothes. But Zara’s fall 2019 collection is already here. At least, some sort of late summer/early fall 2019 collection is here—and it’s full of transitional must-haves. And that’s reason enough to buy a long-sleeve maxi dress and over-the-knee boots in the middle of this sweltering July heat, right?

Zara’s first summer 2019 collection was full of vibrant, trendy finds. Saturated sheer pieces were on offer—so were punchy floral prints, sparkly summer sequins and all kinds of retro-delightful polka dots. When Zara’s iconic semi-annual sale came and went, these decidedly summery pieces left store shelves (and entered closets) en masse, ushering in a new season’s worth of clothes. Zara re-upped its selection of basics, filling its online and brick-and-mortar stores with structured power suits, sleek leather boots and wide-leg culottes in virtually every autumnal shade imaginable. The brand added some dark florals and neutral shirtdresses to the mix, too—and even threw in a little outerwear—leaving the boutique feeling thoroughly ready for October. This issue is, of course, it isn’t October at all. It’s July. And while you might be able to justify knocking out some fall fashion in August, even the most forward-thinking among us surely agree that July is pushing it.

However. We’re all about to experience the sartorial equivalent of cognitive dissonance. Because while our minds start turning to autumn in August, the seasons don’t actually change until September 23. (I know—there’s more summer in September than there is in June. Go figure.) We’re about to crave fall fashion 1-2 months before fall even begins. Our wardrobes will be saying one thing—neutrals, knits, boots—but the weather will be demanding another entirely. And this is precisely where Zara’s late summer/early fall 2019 collection fits in. It’s chock full of pieces that aesthetically scream “fall!!” without sacrificing the lighter-weight elements key to any summer wardrobe. It’s not preempting fall, it’s preempting our collective shift to fall—even when summer’s still rearing its sunny, humid head.
