3 Items Later, and Your Fall Wardrobe Is Set

When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

While I'm enjoying every last minute of summer, I have to admit, my mind has already shifted to everything fall fashion. When it comes to transitioning your style for the new season, there are three key items to add to the top of your fall shopping list. Up first, a statement jacket. I suggest buying at least one eye-catching jacket you can wear throughout the season and make it your signature piece for the upcoming months. For footwear, I'm styling all my clients in sock boots this season. The updated ankle boot style looks great with jeans and a simple tee or a printed dress and moto jacket. You'll get so much wear out of the on-trend shoes, I promise. Lastly, add a couple tops with statement sleeves to your outfit rotation. A bold top is an easy way to freshen your go-to denim look this fall. Ready to prep your fall style?
