Fashion Forecast: Pieces to Pick Up Now

As the weather gets colder and we start gearing up for the holiday season, it’s time to update your wardrobe with a handful of pieces that’ll make dressing for the upcoming months a little less stressful. Consider these your go-tos till New Year’s. Buy them now and thank us later.

A cozy sweater
Fall and winter is sweater weather—everybody knows that. A neutral-color knit will keep you looking stylish for the season, all the way from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Pair a chunky cardigan over skinnies and boots for a contemporary, chic look, or style a softer, more fitted pullover with a skirt for a dressed-up occasion.

An embellished blouse
If you’re looking for festive fashion fit for the holidays, you really don’t have to go as far as a Christmas cardigan covered in over-the-top seasonal cheer. Keep things modern and pick a top with a bit of sparkle and shine instead. The dazzling details will keep your look aligned with the holidays but in a smart and subtle way.

A chic coat
The right outerwear can truly make or break an outfit, so choose yours carefully this season. You’ll want a coat that can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion, is fitting for the colder months, and has a sense of sophistication and style about it. From wool trenches and parkas to capes and peacoats, there are a slew of trending styles to choose from. With the temperature dropping, you’re bound to be wearing yours quite a bit, so, most important, make sure it suits your style and personality.

The perfect cocktail dress
Along with the holiday season come invites to holiday parties—so you’ll want a dress you can wear a couple of times now and not get tired of later. Find a frock that can be styled a number of different ways—with tights, different necklace and collar styles, a multitude of colors—and let that be your essential piece for fancier affairs this season.
