What to Wear: Fall 2017

New looks and Fashion Week inspiration to cozy up to for autumn.

It’s autumn and that means there’s a chill in the air and an urge to update your closet. Unlike its predecessor summer, which forces us to strip down to the bare essentials to endure the stifling heat, this season’s falling temperatures and hot apple cider vibe beg for cozy coats, sexy boots and never-ending layers. Keep reading and see the must haves for your new fall wardrobe.
 
Knee High Boots
A classic cure-all with transformative power. Slipping into a knee high boot, or an even higher over-the-knee boot, has a way of making you feel confident enough to take on anything fall tosses your way. Over-the-knee stiletto style boots were all over the Fashion Week runways, and celebs like Gigi Hadid and the Kardashian camp have been spotted in them since September.
 
Fall Florals
If you remember the nineties, you remember that flowy, floral dresses were everything. Well, they’re back again, filling fashionista closets from Paris to Milan. Darker, moodier florals are particularly on trend this season. Pair yours with a moto jacket and boots and you’re good as gold…or should we say, grunge? 
 
Knits and Velvet
This year, rather than a simple cashmere sweater and jeans, why not mix it up? Flowing, velvet palazzo-style pants are everywhere, offering the rare opportunity to be both comfortable and chic. Sweater skirts and dresses in a variety of styles allow you to be warm and cozy from head to toe with a fashion game that’s on point.
 
Statement Sweats
Last, but certainly not least, the athleisure trend lounges on. You may feel laid back and lazy in your matching sweats (preferably in pastels), but add a pair of booties and a statement bag and - voila! Sunday brunch has never looked so fashion-forward or felt so good.
