Blazers are a must. While Stacey Naler reaches for a blazer no matter the season, fall is the time to unabashedly embrace the style. Mix high and low by styling a a blazer with jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers for a casual look.

Add unexpected colors, pairing bright green, lavender, pink, and red with neutral pieces you already own. Add a pop of color to denim, a black skirt, or ivory wide leg pants. Or, fully embrace these unexpected color trend and go for a monochromatic look. Pro Tip: Add interest to workwear by opting for a monochromatic look at the office.

Embrace pattern. Plaids and houndstooth dominate the season for a reason. Indulge in this perennial trend but give it a fresh take with unexpected pops of color or interesting silhouettes. Think mismatched houndstooth in bright hues and shirt dresses given an upgrade by Veronica Beard.

For a cool-girl nod to fall temps, opt for luxe materials like leather, snakeskin, and suede. Opt for a pair of paperbag leather shorts until the temperatures plunge, then pair the staple with fall’s favorite outerwear in the form of a matching leather shacket. Worn together or separate, these pieces will get quite the mileage this fall.

Lean into neutrals, whether they’re pieces you already own or a few new finds. Fall is the perfect opportunity to embrace earthy hues and warmer fabrics, like denim and knitwear. Pair with aforementioned blazer to complete the look and add an extra layer of warmth.
