I tried to resist wearing a jacket for as long as I could but had to finally cave in; however I will not surrender to wearing tights with skirts anytime soon. Why is it so hard to let go of summer? I’ m wearing some basic essentials for the Fall e.g. leather jacket, warm scarf and leopard print heels. Some other must-haves are a nice pair of jeans, booties, anything plaid and a blanket sweater. Who am I kidding? This list could go on forever! If doing a total overhaul of your wardrobe for the Fall is not in your budget, I would scour magazines and sites for looks that you like and try to recreate those looks with items that you already own. Also, only invest in accessories as you can combine them with a variety of ensembles and get a lot of use out of them. Whenever I buy anything I try to make sure that I get my money’s worth out of an item and maximum usage.
