Key Pieces: The new essentials

Floral dresses, no longer just for spring, they are autumn and fall. You can wear a thin layer under it and a cozy knot over for a cool look. Be sure to match the sweater to a color in the pattern or you can end up looking like a flower child. You should look sleek not sloppy!

Bright bag, bright hues are in! If you like yours in small doses, a chic purse makes a splash and won't scream look at me! Try colors like berry or cobalt blue with a neutral wardrobe. If you want a little more pizazz, choose a patent leather.

Leather jackets!! Grab a bomber jacket! Paired with a cute dress and heels, you are sure to make heads turn. Or make it cute and casual with your favorite pair of denim, flowy top and pair with embellished flats or booties!

Fair isle cardigans and sweaters. Nothing says comfy in the cold winter than a cozy knit. Instead of grabbing that solid, try the folksy spin. It's a Scottish sweater with classic pattern, but the shape is a little different. Wear it with pants, or belt it over a skirt for a pulled together look.

Fun gloves! Put those plain and boring black ones away! Putting on a pair of gloves goes a little further than just warming the hands now. Vibrant shades and lots of details is what make a chic pair of gloves show your true colors. Choices include, studs to ladike buttons. Find what works for you!

Leopard print we spoke about before, but I need to make sure you all get it! Try it, buy it, and wear it!! Have fun adding it to solids or be risqué and wear it with another print. Try a bold one that doesn't clash but adds contrast. Check out some of the Fall fashion mags to check out this trend.

Nude shoes are hot!! Not to mention the fastest way to look longer and leaner. Find a shade that pretty close to your skin tone and show a little leg with a short skirt or you fav skinny or ankle jeans. I like wearing my nude pumps with every color in the book!! They make an outfit look amazing!

Parkas and Anoraks have turned a new leaf with the new tailored versions that were created for the everyday woman. Throw on an army green one and add edge to an evening look. Or throw one on with a pair of leggins or jeans and spice up a casual look.

Just a few things to look out for in the upcoming Fall season! And don't worry, I got alot more for ya!!!
