You’re ready for fall but is your wardrobe? Heading back to school or work, prepping for crisp outdoor activities like apple picking and pumpkin picking (all the pickings!) — it all calls for a closet full of newness. We’re not talking about replacing everything all at once: More like infusing the season’s essential trends into your regular rotation.

So what exactly do you need to transition your look for cooler temps? From head to toe, we’ve narrowed down the pieces that will reenergize your wardrobe in a snap.

Moto Jacket

fall fashion must-haves: leather jacket

This is the ultimate fall layering piece. Rock it in classic black or an updated hue like navvy — with floral dresses, jeans, jumpsuits, and more.


update your fall wardrobe with a plaid blazer

The instant autumn-maker, a plaid blazer adds polish to even the most basic jeans and tee.

Leopard Shoes

By now, you probably know how important animal print is for fall. The easiest way to incorporate it is with a sleek pair of shoes. Meow.

Chunky Knit

Cozy up to this classic in a rich jewel tone. You’ll thank us later.

Red Blouse

TBH, anything in red is on trend for the season but we just can’t get enough of a statement top.

Long(er) Skirt

go the distance in a long skirt for fall

From mini to maxi length, it’s all about a below-the-knee skirt. Bonus points if you rock yours in bold stripes.

Western Booties

Giddy up, girl. Try swapping out your standard ankle booties and go west in a cowgirl-inspired pair.

Top Handle Bag

grab a bag with a top handle for fall fashion updates

A ladylike structured purse makes any outfit look instantly pulled together. Yes, please.

Daytime Sparkle

add statement earrings to your fall outfits

Saving your shimmer for nighttime? Boring. Shine during the day by styling sequin pieces mixed with textured knits or denim, or just throw on some earrings that combine the best of both worlds.

Bold Floral Dress

try a bold floral for fall

Send yourself flowers — in the form of a bold printed frock. This blooming babe-worthy dress (in one of our favorite fall hues) works with a leather jacket or a textured pullover.
