Have you cleaned out your closet and transitioned your wardrobe from Summer to Fall, yet? No. Well what the heck are you waiting for? Fall is here and in full force so you better get ready if you want try your hand at landing on Instagram's best dressed list. All jokes aside, Fall just may be the best season for Fashion. Layering on textured fabrics and bold accessories provides endless opportunities to be fierce this Fall.
Here are five Fall items that I have on my radar:
1. The Wide Leg Trouser
There's just something about a wide-leg trouser that means business; Not to mention, they're great for accentuating your curves. Choose a neutral and heavy weighted fabric for a work appropriated, day-time look. Or, if you're like me and wanna get a lil fancy; check out these metallic pants from Missguided.
2. Utility Jumpsuit
For a long time, I only associated jumpsuits with spring and summer. (You know: your typical sleeveless one piece made out of some stretchy polyester fabric). However, this season has seen the return of menswear influence and with it long-sleeve weighted fabrics combine to make the perfect jumpsuit. There's something about this denim jumpsuit that reminds me of a 1800's rail road worker LOL. Whatever, it is it works and I've added it to my Fall shopping list. Imagine this paired with a sky high nude or red pump for added femininity.
3. Everyday Tote
I don't know where you live, but around here it gets chilly! You've got to be on the move from place to place quickly to fight the frigid air. There's no time to have your hands full of this and that. So, a tote bag that can handle your everyday essentials (and a few things you don't need of course) is surely the move. A neutral color that wont clash with your jacket or coat works best.
4. The Poncho
If you haven't seen a poncho on the rack at your favorite store, then you probably haven't been shopping hard enough. This buffalo plaid poncho from the Adam Lippes for Target Collection is still one of my faves. Wouldn't this be great over that denim jumpsuit?

5. Statement Boots
When you're all bundled up, the only thing people may get the chance to see are your shoes. So, you better make the most of it. Boots can be the icing on the cake for a great outfit. I love these OTK boots because they are dressy enough to look like you care, but casual enough to give off an effortlessly chic tease.
