Fall fashion isn’t necessarily known as the dressiest of them all. Even though the runways are often filled with high-fashion elements, the way real women wear fall pieces usually ends up falling more on the casual end of the spectrum. Comfortable pieces that can keep you warm, like jeans, boots, and ponchos, become go-tos for daily outings, and it can be a challenge to dress them up.
That’s why we turned to our resident celebrity stylists, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, for tips and tricks on dressing up fall looks without breaking our necks (or the bank).
Keep scrolling for three easy ways to take your everyday fall outfit to the next level!
A studded jacket or a metallic blazer or biker jacket can dress up even jeans and a tee! A metal belt can add instant glamour to an all-black outfit, and you can’t go wrong with a sequin or glitter clutch.
Fringe can add a luxe element and elevate a look instantly, as can metallic embroidery, delicate lace, and rich leathers. Try a cream mohair cardigan for an especially high-end texture!

You basically can’t go wrong with an animal print in the cooler months. Try a leopard ankle bootie or a snakeskin handbag or pump.
