The weather is beginning to turn, and autumn is right around the corner. It’s time to start packing up those summer dresses into storage and thinking about the season ahead. Along with the joys of colorful autumn leaves and pumpkin pie also comes the fun in building up your fall wardrobe. To help you plan and streamline your fall shopping, we’ve put together this year’s top six essential fall staples.


Sweater Weather The quintessential cold-weather staple is the warm and cozy sweater. From cardigans to chunky wools, this is the one piece that will fit every fall occasion.

Top-to-Bottom Denim – Denim works for every season, but the color stories for fall are quite distinct. In fall we see darker shades of indigo, a gray palette and even pops of subtle colors such as burgundy and forest green. Pair your denim jackets with everything from sweaters to dresses and even jeans.

Pantone’s Marsala – If you are not familiar, Pantone is the ultimate authority on color theory and trends. Every year Pantone announces the Color of the Year, and last year Marsala won the title. Appropriately named after a deep-toned wine, Marsala brings a rich and luxurious feel to your wardrobe.  

Touch of Texture – Add some sparkle and depth to your style with layered pieces that provide interest. Mix and match textures like lace, velvet, or leather to take your basics from day to night.

Tailored Garments – Summer is all about the loose and flowing fabrics, but with fall, it’s time to suit up. Fall silhouettes are tailored and structured, giving a more sophisticated and formal feel. Shop the collection for trousers, blazers, and fitted dresses.

Mad for Plaid Stay comfortable and warm in the classic flannel plaid shirt. Plaid is a great investment because it returns as a favorite trend every fall. Pair with basic denim or layer under sweaters for an easy-to-wear outfit.
