Grab your jackets ladies because the days of tank tops are over and fall is here. Our shorts turn to leggings as we step into some more conservative capris. Fall brings upon the neutrals as we say goodbye to the blinding neons. So don’t worry about those scandalous Daisy Dukes showing too much because with the styles of fall come dress code-friendly looks that are sure to impress.

Boyfriend Sweater We’re all familiar with this look. It’s the men’s sweater paired with leggings. This oversized top provides comfort and style to celebs of Rodeo Drive and fashion divas of the Johnson hallways. Add accessories of any kind to feminize this look and make it your own. Pair this outfit with girly flats or autumnal boots to counteract the bulkiness of the sweater.

Tall Boots A nice knee-high boot looks fab in the fall. And paired with a range from skinny jeans to mini skirts, they’re this season’s must have item. I recommend these killer kicks for anyone, because they pair nicely with all kinds of styles, but hurry off to DSW because these trendy shoes will be selling like hotcakes.

ScarvesThis high-end accessory is a fall must have. Coming in colors and patterns of all kinds, this compatible item suits any style. Personally, I’d go for a solid with a patterned scarf  as my centerpiece, but I’ve seen it worn in other appealing ways. Just remember not to clash with this cute staple or you’ll be labeled a Miss-Matching Molly.

Leggings This versatile leg wear can be found in various styles: patterned, solid, corduroy, and even leather. Leggings can be worn as pants under a flowy button down or as added warmth under a dress. This statement item is flattering on all body types when worn correctly.

Grey Denim We can thank Pippa Middleton for this trendy look. Pair grey denim with a plaid top to execute the “lumberjack” feel. The staple item can be transformed from retro and edgy to classically trendy with added accessories and flare.

Well ladies, the fashion experts have spoken, and they leave us with these trendy pieces for the fall. Take these chic tips into consideration before heading off to school or the pumpkin patch with your besties, and you’ll be runway ready for fall.
