Stuck in a rut before fall's even started? Want to make a change to your wardrobe but not sure where to start? Read on for 10 finds that will give instant life to your fall lewk. Happy FALL! xo
FASHION INTEL | Sick of your safe knits? Want to add instant interest to your upper half? Going sheer doesn't have to be scandalous - this chiffon sleeve sweater's ruffles and swiss dots perfectly balance out its flirty sheer sleeves. Wear it with jeans or wide leg pants and heels.
FASHION INTEL | If you've written off high-waisted pants as ugly or unwearable, might be time to take a second look. Now that every in-the-know girl is wearing them, the stores are stocked with high-waisted stunners that put unflattering mom jeans to shame. We're personally partial to studded details and anything made by Levi's (because Levi's, right?).
FASHION INTEL | It's true: leopard really is a neutral. Give life to your collection of solid toppers with a leopard print coat which you'll appreciate both for its outfit-making capabilities and its undeniable coziness once the cold weather hits.
WE LOVE | Leopard Coat, $178, GAP
FASHION INTEL | Pearls used to be a good girl go-to but the pearl of Fall '17? More like good girl gone bad. The newest pearl accessories are more punk than pretty when mixed with studs or added to modern drop chain earrings.
FASHION INTEL | You probably already have basic black ankle boots and let's face it: we all live in those. But this fall, we're getting all the feels from high texture, high impact boots that instantly take any basic outfit beyond. These floral beauties hit all the right notes with their practical block heel, sequined floral print and pretty pink/gold/black colour combo. Swoooon.
WE LOVE | Sequin Floral Ankle Boot, $130, ALDO
FASHION INTEL | Want to glow like RiRi? Yup, us too. While how much you strobe/highlight is up to you, we're leaving the perfect pigmented highlighter up to Rihanna. If you don't already highlight, start small by adding just a touch to the middle of your eyelids, the inner corners of your eye, the top of your cheekbones, your cupid's bow and a light dusting on your collarbone. For a night out (or once you've perfected the application), go a little heavier for some serious glow.
FASHION INTEL | Still wearing basic black socks or (gasp!) sports socks? Just because the weather's about to cool off doesn't mean you have to give up on your ankles. These flirty little ankle socks are ideal for wearing with this season's cropped pants or peeking out under a pair of ankle boots.
FASHION INTEL | Blazers are back in a major way but instead of reaching for the classics, this fall is the perfect time to try something a little more statement(y). We're obsessed with kimono-style blazers right now for layering over basic black & white. Work in an office? We love how the structure of a blazer looks far more profesh than an oversized cardi.
FASHION INTEL | One of fall's biggest colour trends is bright, bold red and we can't think of a better way to rock it than with a new handbag. Yup, any excuse to buy a new bag, right?
WE LOVE | Selena Grace Bag, $465, Coach
FASHION INTEL | From flowy dresses to suede skirts, a great over-the-knee boot is always worth the investment for bringing drama to your fall wardrobe. When trying on, make sure they actually hit above your knee, that they fit in the calf area (not too tight, not too loose) and of course, make sure you can walk in them. Oh, and most importantly, make sure they make you feel like a total babe. Oh and one more thing: you're worth it.
