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?

8 Fall closet essentials under $80!

style trend comment

8 closet staples under $80 | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

With the official start of Fall starting tomorrow, it’s a good time to start looking at your closet to see what items you already have and what gaps there may be. I’ve rounded up what I consider closet essentials for you. A chunky sweater dress is always great for the cooler weather and can be transitioned to winter by adding leggings or OTK boots. A cardigan is a must in my closet and the longer length is great for both formal and casual looks. Add a little bit of a statement to your footwear with a leopard print bootie – treat it like a neutral and the pairing possibilities are endless. A long sleeve tee is always great for layering and is perfect for extending the life of your sweaters. There is a tendency to gravitate towards darker colors in the fall but a neutral tote can be used all year round. Olive green is a must have color and this vest is the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe. These mules are the best way to hold on to the summer weather and also embrace the new season. A light jacket is necessary and what better way to make a fashion statement than this classic moto design?


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Burgundy sweater dress {only $19 and 2 colors available}

2. Beige longline cardigan {3 colors}

3. Leopard print bootie {under $50}

4. Grey layering long sleeve tshirt {3 colors}

5. Tan work tote

6. Olive green utility vest {2 colors}

7. Bow mule slip ons {2 colors}

8. Black moto jacket {3 colors}
