I’ve been saying this since probably June 1st, but my feelings haven’t changed a bit: I seriously cannot wait for fall. The thought of patterned tights under tweed shorts with oxford pumps makes me warmer than a cup of hot cocoa. I can’t wait to retire my gladiators for the year (it’s been a good run, guys) and break out the lace-up booties.
In my opinion, fall is the best season for fashion because it’s all about layering. And by layering, I absolutely do not mean layering a North Face over a cami and Uggs over ankle socks. It’s more like blazers over the perfect cotton tank. So what do you need in your closet for this fall, and what should you avoid at all costs?
God knows I love a good trench, but the cape is the epitome of effortless chic. You can throw it over just about anything (leggings, jeans, skirt, shorts), which makes it perfect. The key is to find one that hits about mid-thigh so it’s still fun and flirty, yet romantic – too long may drown you out and too short might create a larger hip. If you chose to invest in this piece, I suggest sticking with camel, a color that’s timeless and matches with pretty much everything.
I’ve been obsessed with the Olsen sistahs ever since their “You got it, dude!” days. I’ll never forget sitting in front of the tv trying to distinguish which twin was on camera (quite a talent, I know). I owned every direct-to-video they put out, seen every episode of Two of a Kind and So Little Time, and it’s safe to say that Billboard Dad and New York Minute are two of my favorite movies.
I feel like the girls and I have grown up together. And as they have become crazy rich with booming careers at the age of 24 and can afford insane designer wardrobes…I have too not. It’s fine, I’m not jealous. Okay, only a little. Well, maybe a lot.
Green with envy or not, there’s no denying that these girls are true style icons. Even grabbing their usual Starbucks in the morning requires dressing to the nines. I wouldn’t hate standing in their closet(s) just to marvel all the beautiful pieces (I say marvel because fitting into their clothes would require major plastic surgery.)

Jersey Shore is on commercial right now (don’t judge), so I figured I’d post an editorial spread I found and loved. I can’t wait for fall – I’m pretty much over sweating out this summer, and I’m ready to start layering and wearing pants again. Here’s some looks and trends you can be expecting this fall:
