As I start to think about wardrobe updates for fall, I can’t help but feel a little giddy about layering and leather. So, let’s consider these must-haves a sneak peek for fall – and then get back to enjoying the warm weather while it’s still here.

1. Hermès Canvas Backpack. Give a nod to the 90s with this classic backpack. Don’t worry – “No white after Labor Day” no longer applies.
2. J Brand Leather Pants. When it comes to leather skinnies, no one does it better than this label. Opt for a blush hue to soften the look.
3. Bucco “Bammy” Sneaker. Borrow from the street-style stars and try slip-on sneakers. This snakeskin pair will go with anything.
4. Andrew Marc Shearling & Fur Jacket. Own the shearling trend in this luxe – and uber-cool – number.
5. IPPOLITA “Modern Rock Candy” Drop Earrings. These gold geometric earrings are seasonless, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t the ideal jewelry-box addition for fall.

Backpacks are back – and we’re loving it. But the $3,400 canvas graffiti backpack Chanel debuted on September’s Spring 2014 runway? Well, we’ll let you decide.

(Under full disclosure, we totally would have traded our JanSports for it back in the 90s.)
