Damas y caballeros, Fall is here! That means it’s time to clean up our wardrobes and bring out all our cool-weather clothes. It’s also the time when you start getting dressed and you realize that you probably need a couple of fashion updates to survive the new style season ahead. As for me, I feel like I need absolutely a new closet for the fall. However, I’m going to pretend like you are better stocked up than I am, and only let you in on the staples you won’t want to miss. Looking to fill your closet with just a couple new fall threads? Here are three staples you should get your hands on now.

1) A Leather Jacket: Invest in a good leather jacket. This versatile piece will keep you warm and stylish. For a casual look, you can wear it over a printed tee and skinny jeans. Dress it up for a night out over a form fitting dress and knee highs. Invest on a black or brown one, and when the weather gets colder, layer it on top of basic hoodies.
2) Booties: This style of boot is the perfect transitional footwear. Your feet will be warmer in a pair of shoes with more coverage, plus it immediately gives you that cool-girl factor. Try wearing them with knee high socks and a skirt for a casual day out with friends, or complete your tees and jeans combo with a stylish pair. I’d suggest getting a pair in black, and one in leopard print. This print is all the rage on booties this season!
3) Sweater: This might not be groundbreaking news, considering that it is, after all, sweater weather. However, sweaters are a standard Fall staple for a reason. They keep you warm, they can be worn as a layer or top, and you can pretty much wear them for anything. Try one with a tulle skirt for date night, or dress it down and wear one with shorts and booties.
