Colored Leggings

Every fall I stock up on my favorite high-waist cotton leggings, except this year I'm prioritizing more variety shopping for colors other than my black and light gray go-to's. I love finding creative ways to keep it casual, mixing and matching these cold weather basics as comfort continues to be a major priority within our daily lives. Investing in quality leggings for full coverage and support in all the right areas will be your best purchase of the year.

Matching Knits

Matching sets have been in high-demand since the beginning of the on-again off-again stay-at-home orders.

Pair this set with cozy slippers and a cup of hot cocoa for a comfy night in.

My favorite throwback trend from the 90's, the puffer coat is a must-have for everyone. Super comfortable, soft and oversized, it's the closest we'll get to staying in bed all day while we accomplish what needs to be done in the outside world. Perfect as an everyday coat, make it high fashion with a cute and casual cold weather look.

If you are looking to step your shoe game up this season, a chunky boot hits different.

Vest

The chances of you already owning a vest may be slim in 2020, however, I am convinced this is one of the best layering pieces to add to your wardrobe this fall no matter your personal style. As there are a ton of options from knit to leather vest on trend this time of year, pair with weather appropriate bottoms and a long-sleeve button-up for an effortless cozy chic look.
