All the deep colors and sumptuous textures of fall clothes call for standout jewelry that doesn’t get lost in the mix. Jewelry carved from the fallen branches of Oregon pine trees, for example. This gorgeous pine pendant necklace from the wood art shop Turning Time allows you to bring a unique piece of nature into your wardrobe. Wear it on its own or layer it with a few metallic chains and stone pendants for a truly eclectic look. Then just sit back and let the “Where did you get your necklace?!” comments start rolling in… [$25, Etsy]
I didn’t even know I was looking for the ideal sexy-yet-comfortable fall outfit, but thanks to Jennifer Hudson, I just found it. Her body-con midi dress in a deep burgundy shade (I’m still boycotting the word “oxblood,” sorry) paired with coordinating lipstick and streamlined black accessories is perfection. Want to steal her style for yourself? (Don’t mind if I do!) Read on for all the shopping details… Keep reading »
I just got these gorgeous boots in grey as a gift. I’m very much a sneakers girl, so I have no idea how to wear them. Can you help with some outfit ideas? – Jen
Well, first of all, bless the person who gave these to you because they are so freaking cool. I’m salivating. As for how to wear them? Girl, the good news is, you can wear them with a lot. Given that you described yourself as a sneakers girl, I’m guessing your typical style is casual, and perhaps a bit sporty or hip.To show you just how versatile these boots are, I put together three fall outfits that I hope are right up your alley!

Welcome to layering season! As we ease our way into fall and anticipate cooler temperatures ahead, we’ll be showing you how to wear key wardrobe pieces in different ways depending on the weather outside, ensuring that item you bought in September is still a part of your wardrobe rotation come February. For our first Fashion Forecast, I’ll show you how to wear this soft, cozy and subtly glitzy sweater — from Phillip Lim’s Target line! — when it’s mild and sunny (now!), chilly and rainy (in two months), and cold and dreary (the dead of winter).

“With winter approaching I’m getting into my usual fall dilemma (which I have obviously failed to solve). To be totally honest, I am relatively particular about shoes. In the summer I wear flip flops, strappy flat sandals, toms and for work and nice dinners out, ballet flats. I basically refuse to wear heels unless I absolutely must. I can’t wear boots because of high arches (if I can get them on, they usually pinch my feet so much that they go numb) and this applies to almost every pair of boots I’ve ever tried on or tried to try on. My question is, what shoes can I wear to be semi-dressed up in the winter, for birthday parties, nice dinners out, or on a more casual day to work (I’m a lawyer)? You know, just for day to day, cute shoe wearing. To give you an idea of style, I shop a lot at J. Crew and Anthropologie, but don’t really get into trends too much. Please help!!!” – Emily
Girl, I’m with you. As I’ve gotten older, my foot pain has increased and my willingness to suffer through it in order to wear heels has waned. Luckily, there are a wealth of flats that are just as chic as sky-high heels. Based on the way you described your style, I’m inclined to recommend pointy-toed flats and preppy oxfords and loafers. After the jump, check out the 12 pairs of flats I found, with my suggestions for what to wear them with. Keep reading »
