fashion cheat sheet.
Whether you opt for a classic red tartan style like this Zara Checkered Tweed Blazer
($149) or a bright yellow Clueless
-inspired check, your closet should include at least one plaid pick this fall. This season's pieces are decidedly non-grungy and look fresh when they're mixed together.
Something Animal Print:
Leopard print is back in a big way this season along with other wild patterns like snake, zebra, cheetah, and tiger. Add a little rawr to your look with an instant outfit maker: this Mango Ruffled Leopard Blouse
Dark Indigo Jeans:
Denim washes have turned to the dark side for fall. The Loup Sabrina Jeans
($169) will score you extra on-trend points with the wide leg and utility-inspired details.
Chunky Chain Necklace:
No need to throw out your delicate layering necklaces just yet, but you'll want to make room for heftier statement making chains. We like this Baublebar Sariel Statement Necklace
($44) for a quick update.
Something '80s Inspired:
It might feel counterintuitive to be channeling the era of big hair and leg warmers, but trust us. A little bit of '80s goes a long way — pick one bold piece like the ASOS Design Shoulder Pad Belted Midi Coat
($135) to incorporate into your wardrobe so that you don't look like an extra from Dynasty
Cowboy-inspired footwear is everywhere for fall, in all sorts of iterations. So no worries if you're not the rodeo-attending type; you can lean into the look with a subtler ankle-high style like these white Dolce Vita Western Booties
This hue is major for fall. Get noticed in head-to-toe scarlet or just add a touch. The freshest way to style pieces like this & Stories Belted Floral Midi Dress
($89): With other shades of red for a monochromatic mix.
Fall 2018 is seeing the return of early 2000s ruching in a big way. Go for a figure-hugging piece that's surprisingly easy to wear like the Keepsake Oceans Skirt
