Running shoes are slowly on the rise taking over the coveted chunky dad sneaker we've grown so accustomed to when scrolling through our Instagram feeds.

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. While I never gave much thought to my at-home style prior to the recent pandemic, it's refreshing to see chic and cozy attire that makes us feel good even if binge-watching Netflix from the couch. Pair this set with cozy slippers and a cup of hot cocoa for a comfy night in.

Shop the Look

Puffer Coat

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.

Active Sets

While uncertainty remains and our gym memberships are on hold, activewearis still on our radar for must-haves this season. With so many styles and colors to shop, active sets are more stylish than ever before. Whether working out at home or appearing as though you did, this top to bottom set is fit to wear all day long.

Chunky Boots

We've all acquired our fair share of boots over the years but of course there's always room for more. Platform soles not only elevate to new heights but this trend also adds a high fashion element to a classic combat boot style. 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.

Shop the Look

Tote Bag

A classic bag that stands the test of time, tote bags are seeing a major resurgence within the fashion world. Whether micro, medium or large, there is a bag for everyone's needs or lack thereof.
