It’s time to forget about summer trends and start to get serious about fall style. This year functional fashion leads the way while key statement pieces provide bursts of color and texture. Fashion for fall is simple, wearable and just a little bit decadent.

Not sure where to start when it comes to refreshing your new season wardrobe? Follow our style checklist below to bring your look up to speed for fall.

Layer up in cozy sweaters

Choose oversized knits and roll-neck sweaters as you get cozy this fall. Practical, feminine and perfect for those chilly late season days. Pair your volume heavy sweater with your favorite skinny jeans and ankle boots for a relaxed fall look. We love this Tibi Oversized Roll-Neck Sweater in super soft cashmere. It’s the perfect piece for your fall capsule wardrobe.

Invest in a must-have statement jacket

This season your outerwear does a lot of the heavy lifting for your wardrobe. Bring neutrals to life with a coat that features strong fabrics, embellishments or color schemes. Choose a statement design that reflects your style values and gives your fall look some attitude. This Rag & Bone Plaid Knit Coat is a great example of this new season trend. Taking traditional plaid to the next level, this design manages to be both daring and wearable.

Embrace traditional fall colors

The catwalks for fall ‘17 embraced the golden and red tones of the natural world creating a sumptuous color palette for the new season. Choose berry, maple and spruce tones to add depth and luxury to your fall outfits. These Rebecca Minkoff Velvet Studded Sneakers in decadent crimson velvet are a great interpretation of the trend.

Grab some go anywhere boots

Utilitarian boots are one of this season’s staple pieces. Think practical, chunky and masculine for boots that can take you anywhere. Contrast with ultra-feminine fabrics and styles and make these boots your go-to choice for off-duty days. We think these Lanvin Leather Ankle Boots are the perfect, easy to wear take on utility boots.

Make power tailoring one of your signature looks

Tailoring has always been an important piece of a modern woman’s wardrobe. This season strong silhouettes, shoulder definition, and double-breasted styles lead the way. Up the drama of your workday wardrobe with power tailoring or layer tailored pieces with casual looks to create a distinctive personal style. This Isbaella Marant Kelis Double Breasted Jacket fits perfectly with this season’s tailoring obsession.

Choose white accessories to add drama to any outfit

White accessories were everywhere on the fall catwalks. From statement bags to space age shoes, white is the accessories color of the season. White is an easy way to add punch to a neutral outfit and can immediately update your fall look. These Steve Madden Aneeka Pointy Toe White Boots are ultra-glamorous and a gorgeous way to bring some extra white into your wardrobe.
