1. Brown Coat

By now, the only outer layer that might be missing from your wardrobe is the chocolate brown coat. It’s offers such a nice change of pace from the classic camel and gray tones. I also love that it’s a low-committal way to lean into this trendy color.

2. Houndstooth Blazer

If it isn’t obvious by now, I can’t get enough of the houndstooth blazer! I’ve purchased both options linked below and have kept them on heavy rotation. The Anine Bing blazer is great because it doubles up as a coat while the Express one gives me major Balmain vibes.

3. Lug Sole Chelsea Boots

It’s no secret that lug sole boots are taking over fall. If you already have a strong collection of combat boots, then it’s a good time to consider the chelsea boot. This utilitarian staple goes great with dresses, leggings or your favorite jeans.

4. Quilted Handbag

The quilted bag trend is another style that’s still going strong, all thanks to Bottega Veneta. It’s a great piece to invest in if you own plenty of classic bags and want to spice things up for fall.

5. Relaxed Denim

Perhaps the most affordable way to look updated this season is to change up your denim silhouette. Whether you go for a vintage straight or baggy leg, you’ll look effortlessly cool.

6. Leather Shacket

You probably own several plaid shackets by now, but with the leather trend reigning suprme, it’s a good time to throw a faux (or real) iteration into the mix. Style it with biker shorts now and then layer it with split hem pants leggings later.

7. Faux Leather Joggers

I have lots of leather on this list – and that’s because it’s one of the trends that will define the season. Now’s the time to pass on more biker jackets and leather leggings, and dip into faux leather joggers. I’ve been styling mine with heels for an elevated look.

8. Structured Knee-High Boots

Structured knee high boots are a smart investment because they’ll always have a place in your wardrobe as soon as temperatures dip. They’re a match made in heaven with midi-length skirts and dresses but also look killer over jeans and leggings.

9. Sweater Vest

Vests are a trend that continue to grow and one that I’m really intrigued with is the knitted vest. I can see myself wearing one over a shirt dress and cinching it at the waist. You can also style it as a tunic over leggings for an easy chic look.

10. Shearling Slides

Fashion is always exciting when it merges the best of style and comfort. For me,  shearling slides are the epitome of that. Not only are they cushy and comfortable, but they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush.
