If you could only add one more jacket to your wardrobe, make sure it’s a moto jacket. Why, you ask? Simply because it’s a style that can be paired with just about any look. Pair it with your t-shirt and jeans outfit but also, pair it with a dress or skirt. The jacket accentuates a more rugged feel to a look with a tee and distressed jeans. It can contrast a feminine dress or skirt look and give it an overall, more interesting vibe. Any way you pair it, there is no wrong way!

P.S. If you’re partaking in the early sale season festivities, a few notable designer sales:

Net-a-Porter
My picks: rich burgundy Stuart Weitzman boots for 50% off (Lowlands {review} also 50% off), Chloe wallet for 30% off, a versatile striped jersey dress for only $50, a dress appropriate for a black tie function that won’t break the bank (under $125)

 

The Outnet {code SNEAKPEEK for extra 50% off!}.
My picks: Tory Burch boots for $114, Saint Laurent heels for 70% off retail (perfect for all those upcoming parties), Alice & Olivia vest for under $100, neutral boots from Sam Edelman for 75% off {under $38}

 

ShopBop (code MORE17 – 20% off $200+, 25% off $500+, 30% off $800+)
My picks: the dreamiest full length gown in millennial pink from Monique Lhuillier (as low as $121!!), shirt and sweater dress combination (perfect with OTK boots), nude go-with-anything flats that are one of my closet staple, the perfect shade of burgundy Tory Burch crossbody purse, Chanel purse for additional $1125 off!

Style: baker boy caps (starting at $9)

style trend comment

Baker boy caps are the perfect accessory for the fall. Also known as the page boy or newsboy these hats are all the rage. Perched on your head forward or slightly off center, this hat is reminiscent of the French beret. It’s the perfect hat for pairing with a dressed up look (here’s looking at you Karlie Kloss) or to wear for a more casual occasion. I’ve rounded up some hats that won’t break the bank – starting at $9, and all under $29! Let me know below: are you into this renewed hat trend?

4 colors}
