Fall is here. No denying it. Even if you live where it should be getting cooler by now… and hasn’t, you still know it’s coming because work has kicked into high gear and someone has already mentioned where they are going for Thanksgiving!!! What’s next? Christmas music playing in the stores? We hope not but it is time to turn your attention to what you might be adding to your fall wardrobe as the air gets chillier.
Unless you have buckets of money, you probably don’t want to invest in a new fall wardrobe. However, if you love fashion (and who doesn’t?), you’ll want to look somewhat on trend for fall. Fortunately, with just a few purchases, you can totally update your look and continue to win the best dressed award at your office or social club or (at least be an honorable mention).
If you thought animal prints had run their course, you’ve just flunked your fashion IQ test. They’ve gotten to be an even bigger trend showing up on just about every item of clothing and accessory. While a nice snake pattern in a blouse or dress can be a great look, it’s easier (and cheaper) to use animal prints in your accessories – think belts, scarfs, watch bands, etc. Two of our favorite looks we’ve seen this fall are leopard booties and small handbags. Invest a lot (Christian Louboutin anyone?) or a little and you’ll still have just the right touch of animal magnetism going for you!

A leather jacket is a staple and you most likely already own one. However, a leather blazer can be even more versatile. Not only can you wear with your jeans, but a blazer adds a more polished look than a jacket when paired with a skirt, pant or dress. Now that leather has gotten so much more supple than when we all first started wearing leather, a blazer is actually comfortable. Don’t want to invest several hundred dollars? Take a look at the vegan leather below.
Remember when we didn’t wear white after Labor Day (or at least we were told not to)? You have to wonder who comes up with these inane rules. Well, the fashion gods have now spoken and said not only is wearing white after Labor Day okay, it is now highly fashionable! We do love a white coat because it goes with literally everything, and like black, it provides a great backdrop for a colorful scarf to give your look some pizzazz. Choose one with some style like these white jacket options.
We love the versatility of an oversized, printed silk scarf. Not only do they add a splash of color to a suit, dress or even a plain white T-shirt and jeans, but they serve as a great wrap in the evening. A little black dress can take on a whole new life with a colorful scarf draped around your arms. You may own several great scarves already but take a look at the fall selections. It’s a fairly inexpensive way to give your wardrobe an update. The St. Piece below is a little pricey but the weight on this one, truly makes it a warm wrap. And it’s reversible!
Adding just a few carefully chosen pieces to your fall wardrobe can extend the classics, like turtlenecks, wide-legged pants, pleated midi shirts and silk blouses.
