Pre-Fall Style

our fair trade pre-fall collection is full of versatile style

The in-between season has arrived. August is still bringing the heat, but binders and pencils have hit the shelves and a whiff of back to school is in the air. Autumn is coming. 

Pre-Fall Styles to Start the Transition to Autumn

Unsurprisingly, we strive for long lasting fashion here at Mata. If there's a way to develop a style that transcends seasons, we're on it. If we can extend the life of a dress by layering into the colder months, we'll do it. Wearing an item year-round is a challenge we welcome and a prompt to rethink how we buy our clothing.

Our latest collection is full of fun features that create standout style through all four seasons. This time of year calls for us to direct your attention to pieces we've plucked from the lineup because they break down the walls between summer and winter style. This criteria applies to many pieces you'll see on our site, but consider these pre-fall styles a starting point.

the Yashvi Top and Yashvi Dress are beautiful block printed pieces for pre-fall

Yashvi Dress

Earthy tones lend well to a fall palette, and the little peek of yellow-green embroidery adds a little extra brightness on this dress until then.

Yashvi Top

This top is in the same "easy choice" category as a basic tee, but a step up style-wise. The stunning block print is a showstopper no matter the season.

the eve sleeveless dress is an organic cotton dress for pre-fall

Eve Sleeveless Dress

Modified from the original sleeved Eve (returning this fall!), this version kept the mock neck and pockets, balancing a bold print with a sleeveless silhouette. It's just as comfortable and even more fun. 

the Marley Boxy Wrap Top, Fae Pant, and Sasha Shift Dress are pre-fall styles

Sasha Shift Dress

What better to bridge the gap between warm and cool weather but a shift dress? A classic shape gets a taste of new with our rust-tone rib knit, and an optional tie at the waist adds a nice degree of customization. 

Marley Boxy Wrap Top

It's super soft. It's a faux wrap with an adjustable tie (for a no-fuss fit!). It's an everyday top with a flattering fit in a color that spans seasons. 

Fae Pant

Up your pant game! These wide leg pants let your ankles get some air, and the stretchy organic cotton rib knit makes your casual-chic just as comfortable as your cozy-chic, come chilly weather. Psst: they're also available in printed jersey and black jersey.

the billie jumper is a versatile dress in this pre-fall collection

Billie Jumper

It's a Little Black Dress with a lot of possibilities. Wear as-is to beat the heat in this linen-cotton blend, or layer over a short or long sleeve tee once fall hits. How dedicated are we to this dress's season-less versatility? It's coming back this fall in two new colors (sneak peek above). 

the inez bubble sleeve dress is a standout piece for pre-fall

Inez Bubble Sleeve Dress

Did you know organic cotton jersey could look so put together? We had a hunch, and are glad we rolled with it. This subtle but feisty print adds some interest, but with bubble sleeves, this smooth fabric, and hidden pockets, we'll take this dress in every color, always!
