Dior Bag Street Style

When shopping for any season, there are two pretty broad directions one could go in, both of which are necessary parts of a complete and balanced wardrobe. First, there are the basics, which I hope you have covered—and if not you can shop my favorites here and my mom’s favorites here—that are the building blocks of every good outfit and closet. Then, there are the statement pieces. You know, the cool purse or jacket that takes a jean-and-tee look to the next level.

We all need them, but do we always buy them? If you’re like me, then the answer is not as often, but this fall I’m vowing to change that. I’m not suggesting you start dressing like a completely different person, but there are definitely many ways to stay true to your style while keeping it a little more interesting. To see and shop 29 such items I found below from outerwear to dresses to accessories, just keep scrolling.
