1. Chunky Knits

A wardrobe staple for ladies this fall, this trend utilizes coziness and class. Knit pieces are as practical as they are fashionable. A chunky knit sweater or dress is easily paired with leggings or jeans. Bigger is better, size wise, and antique patterns are ideal when working this style.

4. Saddlebag

Ditch last season’s clutch for fall’s favorite accessory: the saddlebag. A great complement to many of this season’s comfy-chic trends, the saddlebag puts a utilitarian-flavored twist on the                            classic handbag. Matched with a floaty, floral dress or boat-striped tee, this style creates an air of effortless ease.
