Labor Day is upon us, and we’re thanking our American flag’s lucky stars for a chance to revel in a long weekend. As the holiday approaches, take the chance to update your wardrobe and lifestyle with must-have items and experiences of the season — you deserve it!
It’s out with the old and in with the new. Check out the seasonal swaps we recommend most:
1. Shop the Season’s Trends
While we care about bold hues and bright bikinis, we welcome Autumn’s silhouettes and color palette. September is the time to stock up on fall staples that will carry you through winter.
Goodbye: Off-the-shoulder overload
Hello: Bell-sleeve tops that are the perfect happy medium between summer and winter.

2. Leave Your Locks Behind
The leaves may not change color in Florida, but that doesn’t mean your beauty routine can’t.
Goodbye: Beachy blonde
Hello: Chocolate brown and vibrant auburn hues for a deeply-inspired new look. Take the opportunity to turn a new leaf and dye your locks with a rich, sable hue.

3. Trade in Your Summer Fitness Routine
Don’t miss a beat to burn calories this fall. Bikini season never rests in the 305.

Goodbye: Aqua sports
Hello: Indoor fitness at Equinox. Equinox’s Barre Fit Cardio class will move you through a high-energy barre routine that will scuplt your muscles from not until sweater weather season.
4. Live in the Change
Don’t let the makeover stop at the seams of your fashion sense. Fall is considered one of the chicest moments in fashion, but interior design can’t be neglected. As we transition into the end of the year, long summer days will end and dusk will fall earlier.
Goodbye: Outdoor tiki torches
Hello: Chic lighting. Make your patio bright this season with Restoration Hardware’s luxurious Morency Lantern in brass. Bonus: when the cold weather rolls in, you can sit by this lantern with your favorite book and cup of tea in hand.

5. Remodel Your Menu
Don’t let your Labor Day switch-ups stop at style and home décor. Adapt your taste buds for a menu that’s worthy of fall’s crisp affection.
Goodbye: Citrus-flavored juices
Hello: Toasty lattes. Sip on a different kind of sweet and get caffeinated at Dr Smood with a copper-enriched cashew milk drink.
