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:

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?

Slouchy boots starting at $59

style trend comment

Move over leg hugging boots – slouchy boots are here. Earlier in the year, they were on all the major runways. These boots are flexible by design and go well with skinny pant silhouettes. But, that’s not all – consider pairing them with a form fitting sweater dress to contrast the proportions. I’ve rounded up boots of all heights and colors with prices starting at $59 and all are under $200!


SHOP THE LOOK:

ONE {3 colors}

TWO {vegan leather; only $80}

THREE {can fold down back part of slouch}

FOUR {3 colors}

FIVE {4 colors}

SIX {50% off & 2 colors}

SEVEN {5 colors}

EIGHT {under $100 & 2 colors}
