3 Outfits Later and Your Fall Wardrobe Is Set

Call it the back-to-school effect—the minute September issues take over the newsstands, it feels like a cue to box up our white linen dresses and get straight to fall shopping. But before you go on a full summer purge, put down your wallet for a moment and take note of the trends we're carrying over from last season as well as the must-have pieces we're picking up for fall.

You may not actually need to buy everything in sight if you go in with our game plan. In fact, these three great outfits are proof you can squeeze a whole lot of essential fall trends into just three outfits. We went to Nordstrom to pick up of-the-moment and functional pieces to upgrade our three main getting-dressed occasions—work, evening and weekend—and trust us when we say you're going to want them all. Curious? Keep reading to see our picks.
