Ladies’ Must-Haves for Fall: What You’re Wearing Next

Officially, Fall is still a couple of weeks ago, but when it comes to your wardrobe…ladies, we’re deep in it. Do you have all the necessities to ensure your looking appropriately updated? Let’s make sure. As is our motto, this isn’t about getting you into the latest fads, head-to-toe. This is just about ways to modernize your existing wardrobe to freshen it up. Add new pieces that you will be able to build on over the season – and seasons to come. Pops of new color, like deep burgundy and dusty purples is one easy way to add some newness. The mod feel of the ‘60’s can be interpreted with color blocking, a shift-style dress, and even a practical pair of shoes with a block heel. A great new chunky sweater, a ‘70’s inspired pair of jeans or blouse are other exciting options, and we’ve got some beautifully sophisticated ways to interpret them all.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see our complete Top 10 Must-Have Lists for Work, a Night Out, or a Casual Day. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

With the importance of knits, no one does a chevron knit scarf better than Missoni. Light enough to wrap snugly around your neck under you coat and far cute enough to keep on with your outfit, the mix of color is beautiful whether you choose this purple combination (our favorite, shown) or a blue motif (also through the ‘shop it’ button). There is even a soft neutral. They all have a metallic threading that is very subtle, so you can comfortably wear this with a tee and jeans or add it to a simple black outfit for a night out.

Vince

Fit Guide
This pull-on bootie from Vince has a pointed toe and silhouette that is one of the most versatile of the season. The ankle is slim enough to wear with skinny jeans and doesn’t interfere when you wear a wider leg pair of pants over them. They look great with tights and a casual sweater dress, too. The black leather goes with everything, and they come in supple grey and cognac suede versions, too. The heel height is just over 3” so you get the elongating benefits of a heel, but the block shape that is completely wearable. Just like Vince’s apparel, the quality is fabulous.

Maggy London

Fit Guide
Maggy London’s tie dye print has a more sophisticated feel than a traditional summertime tie dye, designed in a pattern that cleverly angles in at the waist for a slimming effect that any lady can appreciate. The simple sheath style is especially current in the midi length that should hit just around your calf. The modern fit, up to size 16, is made from a fabric with a touch of stretch. That’s crucial to creating the straight shape of the skirt that is posh for a great dinner, cocktail party or even a wedding. The coral color in the pattern isn’t bright the way it is in the Summer - it has a deeper, smoky hue that pops beautifully against the navy ground. You can keep this dress less formal with nude pumps, but add metallic strappy shoes and a great pair of earrings when you need to step it up a notch. The value can’t be beat for the price.

J.Crew - Collection Lure Brooch Sweatshirt
There are a couple of things J.Crew does really well, and a touch of whimsy is one of them. This sweatshirt exemplifies the season, and it’s actually practical. The feathers are really individual brooches, so you can play – use them all or just a couple. You can even move them around, like using just a few around the neckline or playing with adding some around the sleeve cuffs. You can even add them to other clothing, so you can dress the feather trend up or down. When you’re not in a feather mood, you’ve got yourself a simple navy sweatshirt in a slightly trimmer fit (but still J.Crew modern in XXXS-XL) that looks smart with jeans or your favorite casual pants.

Joie - Vandrea Paisley Print Silk Top
The dark paisley pattern of this sheer silk Joie blouse takes inspiration from the ever-prevalent ‘70’s trend, but the gorgeous jewel tones give it a modern feel that doesn’t play up the retro feel at all. Add a cami in navy or black underneath and pair it with simple black pants or dark jeans for a casually sophisticated – and just so lovely – night out look. Joie’s relaxed styling has a dressy feel, while being loose and comfortable.

Everlane’s high quality at amazing prices is just one of the reasons to love these pants. The other, of course, is the style and fit. Theory has a flannel version, but Everlane’s wool with a touch of stretch has a bit more of a seasonless feel in a wide leg and menswear inspired drape that looks fresh and updated. They come in black (shown) and navy, and are a perfect go-to for the office, with any work wear staples. Wear your favorite flats, the hem of the pants can just skim the ground – they are even cute with a pair of sneakers and a denim button down for a Casual Friday. The fit is contemporary, but this is an easy silhouette, with a waist that’s tapered to sit at your natural waist and a relaxed hip and thigh area so they are flattering on curvy figures, and petite ones, too.

525 America’s turtleneck is one of our favorites, and it’s a silhouette that is truly an essential this season. The modern fit isn’t too skinny, and the ribbing gives it a slim silhouette that looks great on its own (the fabric is thick enough) or layered under a blazer or easy cardigan. It comes in universally easy black and white, both through the ‘shop it’ button as well, but we are showing you the grey so you can see the ribbing and rich texture easily. For the office, this style looks polished and professional with trousers and skirts, alike –and for a night out, it takes a sexy turn with a skirt or jeans.

Nic+Zoe - Waterfall Twirl Knit Fit & Flare Dress
The colors of this Nic+Zoe knit dress are so, so pretty on almost every skin tone. And the smoky teal blue with the charcoal encompass everything we like about the new colors of the season – they have a touch of a retro vibe, but in a rich way that feels very current. The fit and flare styling flatters figures from XS (2) to XL (16), accentuating your waist and gently flaring to conceal your hips. The stretch knit fabric is ideal for this shape since it creates movement and has nice weight to it. Black tights work with this dress once the weather cools down, and heels or booties look great. You’ll be able to wear this to work and for a night out.
