    31 Pieces Of Fall Clothing If You Hate Summer As Much As I Do

    Fall is here and I can already taste the PSL.

    1. A high-waisted faux leather wrap skirt for a wardrobe staple that's great for team meetings, happy hours, and pretty much everything else in between. Now repeat after me: chic. Just add a basic top and you're good to jet.

    2. A belted sweater dress because the weather outside is slowly on its way to becoming frightful, and what better way to celebrate the sun disappearing by 5 p.m. than by wearing this cozy-yet-also-dressy piece?

    3. An open front cardigan worthy of all the compliments it's bound to receive. Slipping this on over a wrinkled white tee and your most faded denim = upping your ~chic~ factor by about 97%. You can't argue with science.

    4. An open-front blazer you can consider step one in building out your capsule wardrobe. It's the crème de la crème of closet staples due to its witchy ability in making any ensemble (from band tees to ripped denim) look put together in an instant.

    5. A pair of classic high-rise Align leggings loved by, and I'm not exaggerating here, almost everyone who has ever slid them on. Ridiculously soft, sweat-wicking and breathable, *and* this improved version comes with my personal saving grace: pockets.

    6. A V-neck pullover I intend on buying and wearing all chilly season long — apologies in advance to the friends and random Instagram followers from high school who will only be seeing this on my stories.

    7. A ribbed knit tunic that screams fall aesthetics thanks to an oversized, ultra-comfortable style — one that can be worn as a minidress with booties *or* a plain old sweater with leggings.

    8. High-waisted leggings guaranteed to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ strutting to your usual dinner spot. Pair these with any simple top to make it look as if you didn't snooze through your alarm this morning.

    9. A V-neck ribbed sweater with the word versatility written all over it in invisible ink. This wardrobe basic can be worn to anything, with anything — and it's great for the sightly chilly days of fall and full-blown freezing temps of winter.

    10. A Levi's denim jacket lined with sherpa because — what's that? Did you hear that? The temps are dropping, and the leaves are falling? Autumn is practically here. Denim jacket season is knocking at your door. Snag one that's extra cozy (see below) in preparation.

    11. Baggy overalls that scream, "I'm taking a trip to the farmers market and buying a dozen apples with the intention of baking an apple pie." Will that apple pie ever get made? Absolutely not. But at least you looked cute during the thought.

    12. A polka-dot number best accessorized with bottomless mimosas served at your next at-home brunch, overpriced avocado toast and a poached egg not required (but highly recommended).

    13. Vibrant skinny jeans voted most likely to star in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. These stretchy hunks of denim are praised by 5,000+ reviewers for comfort, versatility, and glove-like fit — plus, these are *truly* high waisted. None of that fake "high rise" nonsense where you feel like your underwear is constantly on the brink of being exposed.

    14. An oversized knitted sweater vest for making the word "crisp" come to mind. Turtleneck weather is back, pets, and what better way to accessorize it than with the below? I'll be taking five. Thanks.

    15. A maxi shirtdress crafted from a blissfully lightweight material for "fall" days in which the temperature reads at sweating-profusely-degrees. This allows you to look autumnal as heck without having to suffocate your sweat glands.

    16. A two-piece set ideal for work-from-home days in which, wow, your schedule is crammed with deadlines. Throwing on a matching fall-friendly 'fit increases productivity by about 1,000%, and that's a real scientifically proven fact.

    17. A longline plaid jacket so chic, it won't matter that it's covered in the remnants of the apple cider donut you just inhaled.

    18. Elastic-waist faux-leather shorts that look so. damn. chic. Mama loves comfy clothes that fool the masses into thinking I'm trendy (mama in this context = me), and these provide just that when paired with a thick sweater and booties.

    19. A knit pullover that will never get the chance to grace the insides of your Ikea Malm dresser because it will be worn every. damn. day. Versatility is the secret sauce that makes this top so irreplaceable; in other words, you can put this s*** on everything.

    20. A tiered dress with so many ‘fit possibilities that my head is spinning. Rest assured that regardless of if you wear this with OTK boots or white sneakers, this loose-fitting bebe is comfy, comfy, comfy, and did we mention, comfy?

    21. A turtleneck sweater dress for a chic way to feel as if you're *wearing* that ultra soft throw blanket you purchased in three colors from TJ Maxx. The rib knit material is truly a joy.

    22. An off-shoulder blouse featuring a wrap waist and voluminous sleeves for THE party top of your dreams — purchase this now with the mindset that you'll be wearing it to every singly semi-fancy occasion henceforth.

    23. A faux suede mini skirt serving Big Fall Energy. Your outfit will have basically attained a Pinterest level of perfection — just add some boots and a bodysuit. Glass of apple cider in hand is optional but highly encouraged.

    24. A cable-knit two-piece set that will make rewatching The Vampire Diaries for the 90th time this year feel like, well, a luxurious experience. Matching loungewear = a foolproof way to feel fancy.

    25. A chunky knit cardigan perfect for adding warmth to any 'fit. This basic layer has batwing sleeves and pockets, and comes in a few colors (including lots of neutral hues that won't ever clash).

    26. An oversized sweatshirt about to become the loungewear equivalent of your favorite jeans: In other words, this will be worn every. single. day. Opt for matching sweatpants if you're feeling extra frisky.

    27. A tiered baby doll mini taking a page from the Disney 365 book (if you know, you know) because it can truly be worn any day of the damn year. We love a piece that doesn't need to be vacuum-sealed with the change of season.

    28. A bodycon pencil dress that looks so. damn. chic. And while the importance of owning the perfect LBD is no secret, it's likely you've had the same one for...decades (#guilty). I believe it's time we both level up.

    29. A waffle knit set to sweeten cozy weekends spent scouring Netflix for yet another true crime docu-series. Forensic Files coupled with hot coffee, some snacks, and this comfy hunk of loungewear? My definition of bliss.

    30. A sleeveless wrap jumpsuit that doesn't have a favorite season. In fact, it loves to be worn throughout all of 'em: whilst stepping on crunchy fall leaves, to holiday parties paired with slingback heels, during romantic spring picnics in the park, and to summer weddings when the weather is best described as "hotter than Hades."

    31. An off-shoulder jumpsuit made from a breathable, lightweight fabric that won't cling to your upper thighs during inconsistent fall temps. Annnd a drawstring waist for an hourglass silhouette is the cherry on top of a perfect wardrobe sundae.
