The middle of August is that time of year when stores, closets and your shopping libido all sync up in limbo. Magazines push snazzy new autumn outfits while boutiques still sell on-sale spring duds. The solution is scoring a wicked wear-now-and-later accessory like a Bennie and Olive cuff (www.bennieandolive.com). Vinyl bands get printed with floral, duck and cameo designs to dress up bare wrists or slip over a svelte turtleneck sleeve come fall. $20, Little Black Dress Shop , 135 Tecumseh, unit 7, 416-901-5470.
