5 Must-Have Items for Fall 2012

We can hear you groaning now, “Must-have items for Fall? It’s early summer!” Sorry to burst your sunscreen encrusted bubble ladies, but Fall looks actually started hitting stories last month. That’s right, in June, the start of Summer. If you know anything about fashion, it’s that trends start for the next season in the current season.

So, to prep you for the cold weather (We know you’re reading this on the beach and rolling your eyes) we’ve scoured the Web for the top five items you must have at your disposal this Fall. You’re welcome.


Long, short, belted or buttoned, every woman needs a fashionable coat come Fall. While a classic peacoat is always in fashion, choose your coat depending on the type of climate you live in. If you’re in Seattle, something with a hood to protect your hair from rain is a must. Feeling the wind in Chicago? An insulated coat that keeps heat in is the best option. If Miami is your home, you’ve probably skipped down to #2 already, but take heed–the evenings can get chilly, and there are plenty of lightweight coats out there to match your club clothes.

You’ve probably seen plenty of celebrities rocking the colored jeans look this year in every color of the rainbow and then some. This look will continue into the Fall to brighten up the dreary days. So, pick any color (or multiple colors) and get your denim on! This is one trend that’s sure to become a year long staple in women’s closets.

They’re the must-have fashion accessory of the season! Cute to look at and hold, they work for the office, the cocktail party, and the cafe. In multiple colors and designs, find the triangle that appeals most to you! (Fashion tip: Match them to your colored jeans for extra pizazz!)

Scarves are pretty much a clothing must in the Fall to keep your neck warm, but we’ve seen them pop up each season in different colors, styles, lengths, fabrics, and textures. Whether it’s knit or not, a cute scarf can substitute for a necklace any day of the week. And, if you can’t afford #3 above, let this be your main statement piece!

Ugg boots have made a big time comeback, but Fall 2012 is all about the booties! Find a cute pair of ankle boots to pair with jeans, dresses, leggings, or skirts. You’ll have everyone asking, “Where’d you get those cute shoes?!”
