Fall is finally here, which means it's time to clean out our closets and trade in our tank tops for cozy sweaters. I don't know about y'all, but I'm ready for pumpkin errrthing even if it makes me a basic bitch. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin beer, pumpkin décor....bring it all on! Ok..ok enough with the chit chat, let's get to it. I've curated a list of my top 5 items you need this fall.
1) The LEATHER JACKET.
Now this one might seem obvious, but I can not stress enough how important it is to have a good leather jacket in your wardrobe! You don't necessarily have to go out and spend a fortune on a real leather jacket, but definitely spend a little extra to get one that is going to last you for a few years. As much as you're going to wear this, the price per wear is easy to justify. This piece is so versatile. It can easily be styled with anything from a t-shirt and jeans to a cocktail dress. If you already own a leather jacket and are looking for a second option, the suede moto jacket is perfect for you. For an extra wow factor, buy this jacket in a "pop" color like wine or hunter green.
Biker Jacket, $69.99
2) OVERSIZED Sweaters.

3) The LOAFER.
Loafers are everywhere right now, and coming from a girl who use to always be in a heel....I can not get enough of this trend! Booties are normally my go-to for fall, but so far they have not seen a lot of playing time.
Forever 21, $60.00
Velvet always makes an appearance for the holidays, but I feel like this fall it's REALLY having a moment and I'm not mad about it.
Rebecca Minkoff, $195
5)Menswear: The Wool Checkered Blazer
The key to this trend for me is to style it similar to the way I would a leather jacket. Pair it with a cute miniskirt to avoid looking like a grandpa.

Bonus: The RED BOOTIE
Last season it was all about the white bootie, and now it's all about the red! Different versions of this shoe were seen all over NYFW, and are all over Instagram right now. Make sure and grab a pair before they sell out!
