It is a lot to ask, it's true, to have to think about heavy wools and waxed cotton outerwear when all you want is for someone to spray you with a garden hose. If you can handle it, though, Bridge & Burn has released a preview of their fall collection for women, full of all sorts of new forays—including semi-formality. They've taken long strides to diversify the line with every season, so if you miss the art of layering, crank up the A/C and check the whole thing out here, including knitwear manufactured locally by Columbiaknit (yay!).
