October 7, 2021 The 5 Essentials You Need for Fall

Well, fall sure arrived quickly didn’t it, with the cooling weather and early sunsets. Here’s where the fun comes in: it’s time to plan for the 5 essentials you need for fall.

1. The Weatherproof Bag

It’s about to get rainy out there. Swap your go-to bag for one that can stand up to the weather, like this waxed canvas bucket bag or a sturdy leather satchel.

2. The Cozy Sweater

Whether in a neutral fall color like navy or a bright neon print, the cozy sweater is work-appropriate when paired with trousers or skirts and movie-watching appropriate when worn with denim.

3. A Classic Trouser

Pinstripes are always fun for these, and we tend to favor lighter fabrics for comfort. The key is to find the cut that works best for you.

4. The Long Dress

One of the best fall investments! This is the dress that is stretchy and warm and makes you look pulled together in just one piece. Wear it with Mary Janes or Doc Martens, dependent on your mood that day.
