August is always that sweet spot between summer and fall. We still get to enjoy the benefits of summer (AKA — endless sunshine and sandal season), while getting a taste of the upcoming season shift. Although we love this “in-between” month for giving us the best of both worlds, sometimes it can be hard to choose an outfit with the weather jumping around. We’re making the transition even easier this year with two new patterns! Yesterday we gave you a sneak peek of Romantic Paisley and today we’re dishing the details on a second new pattern.
Arriving online and in stores on Wednesday, August 8, Charcoal Medallion is our latest pattern, perfect for transitioning you from summer to fall. Comprised of several shades of gray with frosty blue accents, this pattern is traditional and evergreen, making it great for any season! Charcoal Medallion may look familiar to superfans, as it’s a recoloration of the past favorite, Lilac Medallion. We kept the scrolling vines and handwork you loved from the original, but updated the palette to create a true neutral pattern you can carry year-round.
Available in our Iconic and Carson collections, you can easily find a Charcoal Medallion style to fit your needs and personality. Although it looks great paired with fellow neutrals Denim Gray and Moonlight Navy, feel free to add a pop of color with Gage Blue accessories!
how to wear it
With the neutral gray hues, Charcoal Medallion is the perfect pattern for your everyday bag. Gray is a great blank slate to play with color or keep it cool with coordinating blues, whites and denim. We love the way this pattern pairs with chambray and sneakers for a casual weekend look, but you could easily swap out the footwear for a chic flat, making it appropriate for the workweek. We typically don’t play favorites, but the Iconic Small Vera Tote is ideal for transitioning your look from work to weekend, fitting everything you need from a full-size wallet and water bottle to a spare pair of flats!
