Fall 2014 Essentials

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fall and Winter are my favorite time of the year. I adore the weather, the holidays, and – Most importantly – The fashion. Give me gloves and scarves and outerwear, and I’m a happy, happy girl.

Another great thing about this time of year is that the basics remain the same. Year after year you’ll wear your favorite jeans, you’ll rock your classic trench, and you’ll pull your Wellies out of the back of your closet.

So what should you add to your closet for this season to help update your looks and give you some fabulous new styling options?

Backpacks:

Not only would I never have guessed that I’d be endorsing the acquisition of a chic little backpack, but I truly never thought I’d have one of my own!

Plaid:

Bold Buffalo checks, plaids, and tartans in red, blue, and green are everywhere for Fall – Accessories, separates, dresses, and even shoes!

Leather Jacket:

A quality, classic leather jacket is that perfect investment piece you spend your life looking for. You want something that fits you like a dream, makes you smile & feel fabulous whenever you put it on, and that works season-after-season.

A cropped little biker jacket would be a great pick for this season – Wear over long layers or graphic tees to soften the look.

What’s your leather style? Biker chick, blazer chic, or rock n’ roll?

Capes:

Clearly, I’m obsessed with capes. I’ve been looking for the perfect Fall 2014 piece all Summer to supplement my favorite Calvin Klein capelet.

The fabulous thing about this style, in addition to being able to walk in them, they also look great with everything from dresses to slim pants to a flirty skater skirt.

Try lace-up booties, Western-inspired buckle boots, sleek suede booties, or even cut-out ankle boots!
