Hearty Knit Sweaters

There can be no one item of clothing that sums up fall more accurately than a chunky knit sweater. They’re warm, cozy and come in a vast array of colors and patterns, which makes them an exciting prospect for anyone when the weather gets cold. Not only that, but they can be layered with vests, t-shirts and jackets! So whatever the changeable fall weather brings, you will be one comfy and stylish lady.

Ankle Boots

Versatile and stylish, ankle boots can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and your mood. Think distressed leather for a rustic vibe, or sleek black for a touch of elegance. Pair them with skinny jeans or a flowy dress and some tights. Boom! Instant autumn glam. Sometimes looking stylish isn’t hard at all!

Thermal Gloves

Remember those frigid mornings when you have to scrape frost off your windshield? Or when you're holding a cup of cocoa at a football game? Enter thermal gloves for men and women. Not only are they extremely functional in cold temperatures, but they also make a cute fashion statement when you choose the right pair. You might even want a couple of pairs in different styles so you'll always have a suitable pair, no matter what you're wearing.

Long, Flowing Scarves

A scarf is definitely a must have accessory for the fall and winter seasons. If you want to bundle up as warm and cozy as you possibly can, and make a cute style statement at the same time, then opting for a scarf that's as long and flowing as possible, is the way to do it. Opt for oversized ones that you can wrap around your neck a few times, or drape elegantly over your shoulders and you'll always look fancy.

Versatile Denim

Jeans are truly a style staple in any season, but in the fall, they truly shine. From classic blues to bold blacks, a good pair of jeans paired with a flannel shirt screams "autumn ready’ with very little effort. You’ll be warm, but more importantly you’ll look effortlessly put together too.

Layering Tees and Tanks

As you probably know, fall weather is notoriously unpredictable. One minute it’s a chilly morning, the next you’re experiencing a mid-afternoon heatwave. The good news is, you don’t have settle for either being too chilly all the time or sweating. Layering can be your best friend. Start with a basic tee or tank and pile on the layers as needed. From cardigans and sweaters to vests and jackets, you can find the right mix of wardrobe basics to keep you feeling just right at all times.

Plaid Everything

If fall had a pattern, it’d be plaid. Whether you go for a classic red and black buffalo check or something more subdued, a plaid shirt or skirt is a must have for your fall collection. It somehow makes you look both cozy and stylish at the same time. And as patterns go, it's also one of the most practical.

Want to wear your favorite summer dress in the fall? No problem at all! Just wear a pair of tights or leggings underneath, add some ankle boots and you're good to go. Warm and stylish!

Classic Trench Coat

Rain, rain go away, come again another day. It would be nice if that little rhyme could banish those annoying autumnal downpours whenever we recited it. But we know that’s not going to happen. So, you need to find the perfect garment to keep those rainy days and misty mornings at bay. Enter the trench coat. A classic trench is an elegant addition to any outfit. Cinch it at the waist for a more tailored look, or wear it open and relaxed. Either way, you'll always look amazing!

Warm Pajamas

Let’s not forget the importance of being comfy and cozy at home. Investing in a warm pair of PJs is essential for those nights when you want to curl up with a movie or a good book.

Knee-High Socks

Peeking over the top of your boots, worn with a skirt or to snuggle in at home - your legs will always be toasty warm when wearing knee high socks. They look great with the right ensemble as well!

Brooches and Pins

Remember those vintage brooches grandma used to wear? Well, they're back in style and perfect for fall! Whether it's a sparkly leaf, an owl or a pumpkin design, these pins can jazz up a collar, scarf or hat with a hint of nostalgia.
