I adore fall. Not only is it a stunner of a season with the changing leaves, fashion also shifts at this time of year. A whole new array of color palettes, fabrics, designs and accessories hit the stores. Gone are the days of cut-offs and summer dresses, we trade these in for layering pieces; styles that just make us want to grab a cup of ho-cho, pop on some Bon Iver and get cozy with our loved ones. As I write this at a local coffee shop, I’m grinning ear to ear with a giddy glimmer in my eyes. That’s how much I love fall. But enough about me. Let’s get down to business about what you’re going to wear in the coming months. As much as I want to tell you to run out and buy every jewel toned, wooly fall piece out there, I respect that you probably have other bills to pay that take precedence over your shopping desires (rent for example). Because life gets in the way like that sometimes, I’ve narrowed it down to 5 pieces that will have you looking fabulous this fall.

Block heels: thank whichever woman insisted this be a trend. (We know it was a woman because block heels are comfortable.) . 70’s style is continuing to influence fashion this season and this is definitely one of my favorite items. There are so many great options for block heels out there, from sandals to booties, uber high to super low heels, there’s a style out there for every woman.

Blanket scarf: they’re cozy, warm and can transform any look. Their versatility justifies this purchase; you can wear it as a shawl, drape it around your neck, wrap it up and even use it as a blanket on the plane. In fact, I never travel without one!

Leather jacket: fall temperatures can be all over the map. A leather jacket looks equally as badass over a tank top or a sweater. You can dress it up or dress it down, leather always looks slick.

Turtleneck dress: this is an excellent transition piece. No matter the length, it’s fall appropriate because of the neck. You can wear it solo on warmer days and throw on your leather jacket or blanket scarf as the temps drop.

Oversized sweater: cable knit or cashmere it doesn’t matter. Just make sure it’s big and cozy. Pair it with something slim on the bottom, tights, leather pants, skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. Heck, tie it around your waist with your turtleneck dress and voila, you’ve mastered fall-chic.
