When Labor Day has come and gone and wedding season has started to slow down, the only thing we have on our mind is fall fashion. So we’re packing up our shorts & dresses and stocking up on sweaters & booties.  Here’s what’s on our fall must have list – What’s on yours?


1. A Long Cardigan

The perfect transitional piece.  You can wear this with a dress (for when temps are still warmer) and then pair with jeans and a tee in the cooler months.  If you’re going to buy 1 thing on our list, make this be it – You’ll get the most wear out of it, by far!

2. Mules

Bonus points for a pop of color!  Mules are everywhere, and you definitely need a pair!

3. High Waisted Jeans

Or, “Mom Jeans” – Yep, these are one of today’s top trends and if you’re not on it, it is time to get on it!

4. Neutral Coat

In Chicago, a good coat is a must.  Invest in something neutral so you can wear it for many falls & winters to come – A neutral coat will always be “in.”

5. Neutral Sweater

A neutral sweater is another great transitional piece.  It can be perfectly paired with denim shorts for the warmer months and then transitioned over to regular jeans as it gets cooler!  You’ll never stop wearing a simple, neutral pullover.
