Superstar shoppers know how to get the best bang for their buck by picking classic pieces that transition seamlessly from season to season. Ecouterre paid a visit to Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale to pick out three versatile and on-trend pieces—a short, legging, and cape—that can take you from sweltering summer afternoons to crisp winter nights. Coupled with some of our favorite eco-chic pieces, this sartorial trifecta will help you weather the temperature shifts with aplomb.

GET SHORTY

This short by Hinge ($48 at Nordstrom) can take the heat, but its weightier wool-flannel fabric is cozy enough to brave the autumnal chill, as well. Plus, its neutral color provides the perfect canvas for color-blocking. Mix and match some of the season’s brightest hues while baring your legs for a classy yet au courant look. Or throw on a pair of opaque organic semi-sheer tights, some bangin’ ethical boots, and a Navajo-inspired cardigan when the mercury starts to dip.

LEGGINGS WITH LEGS

Vince Camuto’s black opaque legging ($38.90 at Nordstrom) won’t just magically lengthen your legs, but they’ll also stick with you from season to season. And although you should never mistake them for pants, wearing leggings in the summer opens the possibilities of wearing less on top—such as H Fredriksson’s filmy tunic—while maintaining a professional mien. To get street-style photogs following your every move when the weather cools, rock those tights with a sweater dress that grazes mid-thigh.
