This time of year always brings that “back-to-school” excitement, with or without classes to attend. Any excuse for a new wardrobe, right? So in the spirit of the season, we’ve curated a Boutique chock-full of fall staples and need-now trends. Here’s a look at five of our favorites.
Five Trends for Fall 2015

  1. Trina Turk Jan Wool-Blend Wrap Coat
    A little bit classic, a little bit Southwestern, this coat wraps two trends into one.
  2. Diane von Furstenberg Women’s Black Knit Scarf
    It’s written in the stars – celestial designs are having a moment. And so is this scarf.
  3. Jardin 18K-Plated Pyramid Bracelet
    Geometric jewelry is fall’s new BFF. Wear this bracelet alone or stack with abandon.
  4. Vince Addison Suede Bootie
    Mark our words: This is the perfect transitional bootie. Wear it bare-legged now and add tights when temps drop.
  5. alice + olivia Champagne Leather Wristlet
    Novelty bags are worthy of a toast. And this one’s goes-with-everything metallic hue works with any outfit.

Give your closet something to obsess over. Our Editor’s Picks: Chosen by Our Fashion Director opens Wednesday, September 2, at 3PM ET.

We’re really obsessed with boots. But fall fashion calls for a bit more than just shoes.

1. A varied jacket collection is so necessary. The same outerwear Monday through Friday? No, thanks.

2. It’s only logical that you would sport a sweater under your coat. This weather just begs for layers.

3. Knit, flannel, fleece. You can’t really go wrong with a scarf.

4. You don’t need windblown hair (and rosy cheeks) to look fall-ready, but it certainly helps.

5. Lastly, don’t forget your hat. It’s your look’s secret weapon.

We tend to pair our shoes with whatever is going on underneath our outerwear – and disregard our topper altogether. But this year, let’s change it up. Here’s how to make sure what you’re wearing on your feet goes smoothly with what’s keeping you warm.

We may not be experts in astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

In a month as busy as September, it only makes sense to prioritize. And number one on your list (aside from scoring front row seats to that DVF show) should be turning over your closet.

This time of year is all about fashion, and no one could be more excited than you. And maybe us. But if New York or Paris isn’t in the cards, why not throw your own party? It’s all about the décor, the finger foods, and oh – the outfits.

You have a natural attraction to all things intense. Take that intensity into autumn with printed pants and super-rich layered fabrics. Texture-on-texture over a fall-floral trouser and lace-up stilettos has street-chic written all over it.

Is there anything better than spotting yourself on a best-dressed list? Okay – maybe it hasn’t happened quite yet, but you should always be prepared. That means looking impeccable every time you walk out the door, from blowout to pedicure. Challenge: accepted.

Wearing your emotions on your sleeve does not count as an accessory. But dressing the part is an entirely different story. Deep and brooding? Embrace it with head-to-toe black. Powerful = monochromatic reds. Sometimes it’s okay to be an open book.

You have some serious passion for life (we’re all envious). And harnessing it is not exactly your strong point. Here to help: the structured blazer. Reeling in your outfits just enough to be office-appropriate, this should be your new go-to menswear piece.

On fall’s must-have list: a full skirt (or four). Along with peplum – which is, for the record, still going strong – this ladylike piece is one of the season’s most flattering. Waists are rendered teeny-tiny. The hipless are granted curves. The pear-shaped? Now hourglasses. And, if that didn’t lure you, it’s also decidedly simple to pull off. Here’s how.

This weekend, we’re unofficially sending off summer. Which would be thoroughly sad (no one likes beach weekends more than the lot of us) except for that giddifying word – fall.

Here, four bloggers give us a peek at all the season has in store.

1. Sacramento Street
We reserve exclamation points for only the most exciting things on earth. Like boots! (!!!)

2. Dallas Shaw
Hello, Helmut Lang leather jacket. Sometimes the line between want and need is so unfairly blurred.

3. delight by design
If we ever wanted to match our dinner to our fall wardrobe (you know, just because), Blair’s richly hued beet and avocado salad would be a good place to start.

4. Could I Have That?
Repeat after us: more leopard, please. #wedie
