I’m already missing so many things about being in New York, but am really looking forward to making my way back to the east coast this fall to soak up the full essence of autumn and actually experience fall foliage. Back in LA it’s just now starting to feel a bit more like fall. Surprisingly I have yet to order my first chai latte of the season or make an annual pumpkin run. I think I’m holding out for sweater weather and a severe temperature drop, but am easing into autumn with three must-have staples of the season: Cropped flare jeans, a long sleeve off the shoulder top, and of course, mules.

I’ve been wearing these cropped flare jeans on repeat since the start of September. The cropped flare has replaced the boyfriend jean this season and is at the top of my list for fall staples. Revolve has a laundry list of great options including this pair by Mother and this Mother frayed pair, and of course I highly recommend the high-waisted pair that I’m wearing from Club Monaco.

This Zara long sleeve off shoulder top makes a great addition to any fall wardrobe. Paired with cropped flares or a favorite fall skirt, it’s a great basic to have on hand for these seasonal months. Another trend I’m obsessed with this season is off the shoulder + flared sleeves. It might be a bit aggressive paired with cropped flares but this black top from revolve and this white striped blouse are definitely on my radar for fall.

This fall it’s really all about the mule— a shoe I am 1000% on board with. Gucci makes them in just about every color, pattern, texture, and print but I went for the classic black with gold hardware to be able to wear them longterm with more looks. Unfortunately they have been selling like crazy because they are definitely the shoe of the season, but I found  Bloomingdales is still taking orders if you’ve had your eye on them and want to make the investment.  Also, if you’re loving the style but don’t want to drop $600 — SAKS, Steve Madden, and Michael Kors also make very similar pairs that still capture the same essence without the designer price tag.

For all of you bloggers, it’s an classic camera bag thats everything but techy. And for those of you looking for a leather staple thats different from your traditional tote, this would be great for you!Blogger Erica Aulds of Erie Nick wearing a Madewell Bandana

It’s pieces like this that polish off a look and take it from classic to trendy. This exact one is only $12 so you can try it out and not feel guilty once the trend is long over then resort back to your classic looks seasons to come!
