There is that period between summer and fall where the weather just seems perfect. It’s not sweltering hot outside and the time hasn’t arrived just yet where a heavy coat is needed. So, it’s smart to have the 6 early fall fashion essentials on hand that can take you through to cold weather.
If there was a piece you can live without the early fall it would be a classic blazer. You may go for a more casual style that works well with jeans and miniskirts, but a classic boyfriend blazer may be great to add some polish to your office outfits. If you have a lot of black outfits in your closet, gray, camel, or even a colorful style, might be the best choice.
- Leather Skirt or Shorts
