I love me a great layering piece like the following dreams sweater from Modcloth.  Perfect to drape over a pretty dress or jacket, layer under a jumper or blazer or even just slung around your hips.  I took one look at it and immediately knew that I would style it for a fun quirky fall look.  First I added a flirty a-line dress, must have suede booties, denim jacket and a cozy knit beret and convertible gloves. To finish off the look the following dreams sweater would be draped over the denim jacket with the adorable kittie tote at your side.

Lots of great fall pieces that can be worn a ton of different ways in just one outfit.  For a dressier version you can easily add a sequin mini, tights and pumps or go casual with flared jeans, wedges and a blazer. Either way you can’t go wrong with this cute versatile sweater.

Must Have Pieces For Layering

What would fall be without layering?  To help get the most out of fashions most creative and coziest season, you need to have the right pieces.  That means items that can easily mix and match or be easily worn from day to night.  To help kick off autumn I’ve picked some key must-have pieces for layering and how to wear them.

A little fur  on a vest will instantly make any outfit a little glam, cozy and chic.  Pair with jeans and a striped top for a easy casual look or a little black dress and tights for a quirky sexy look.

Faux Fur Trim Vest

A classic striped top with a touch of leather is a no brainer!  Layer it under cardigans, button downs and finish off the look with a scarf.

Striped Top 

Add some denim to any outfit for a effortless feel.  Wear it under the vest with fur and the striped top for layering perfection!

Denim Top

A long cardigan will make layering dressier pieces a cinch!  Try it with a pencil skirt or even a maxi dress.

Long Cardigan 

Necklaces and scarfs make any layering look instantly more stylish.  Try a long necklace and scarf for a flowy affect.

Long Tassle Necklace

 Scarf

A little black dress is the perfect canvas for all your layering needs.  Pick one that fits like a glove, add some tights or leggings and start adding layers.  You can start by adding a very thin turtle neck or  button down underneath.

My Five Top Fall Trends

Still shopping for Fall? Not me!  Check out some of my favorite Fall trends :

Full skirts
Flattering on most and perfect for day or night.  Wear them with  snug turtle necks, cardigans or a warm wool jacket on the cooler evenings.


Sandals
Yes, that’s right I said  sandals!  Get some extra mileage out of them before storing for the Winter months.   Strappy sandals (or peep-toe pumps) look fabulously chic with dark tights.

The Dolman sleeve
Nothing will make you look more “unintentionally chic” like a dolman sleeve.  Wear it with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.

Anything Plaid
It is the print of the Fall season and one of the most versatile.    Wear it with anything you own and instantly transform your look.  Try a plaid skirt with a fitted jacket.  Slide into your favorite jeans and throw on a plaid vest.  And for an easy yet snappy touch, just grab the durable plaid scraf.

LAYER LAYER LAYER
I can’t even to begin to explain how obsessed I am with layering.  It’s such a simple yet fabulous way to add depth and character to ANYTHING!  The key to layering is keeping the look light and polished.  When layering,  always shoot for the lightest fabric possible.  For example, take your long lean tank tops normally only worn in the Summer (tank tops are perfect for adding depth because they peek out under neath the top layer)  and wear it under a light blouse, slip on a light v-neck sweater and then a fitted jacket.  I’m telling ya, it’s super easy and you’ll look AMAZINGLY put together.

Wide leg pants
You can’t go wrong with wide leg pants particularly when paired with a vest or a wrap shirt.  It will nip your waist and make your legs look long and lean.  Who doesn’t want that?
