Once the temperatures cool off, I'll be slipping on a great pair of jeans, button down and sweater - like this outfit from Lane Bryant. It's classic and tailored, with lots of room for putting your own, unique stamp on the look. Mix it up with your favorite colors and patterns, add some statement jewelry and contrasting shoes. Whatever you do with this combo, you'll look polished and current.
Another fall staple that is already cropping up in stores is the knee high boot. I bought a cute pair late last year that have been languishing in my closet, just waiting for me to pull them out and pair them up with a graphic dress (like this one from Avenue). It's the perfect look for cocktails with the girls or dancing downtown.
And finally, after months of cozying up to the air conditioner I'm ready to cozy up in a cute cardigan. This one by Michael Kors (part of his new-ish Bombshell line, available in sizes 14-24) is great because the swing cut is incredibly fresh. The ribbing and three large buttons add some definition and luxe detail to this updated snuggley sweater.
