    This trend is definitely still going strong – and color us obsessed as ever. Double up on trends by styling a pair of distressed jeans with a chambray shirt; try tucking it in for a more work-appropriate ensemble.

    '70s-inspired peasant blouse

    The Wardrobe Essentials You Need This Fall

    The '70s-inspired peasant top is one of those quintessential styles that's both laid-back and luxe. Choose a style that's cold-shoulder or has a bell-shaped sleeve; who says you can't still show a little skin just because temps are cooling down? Show off your stems in a pair of wide-legged jeans or bell bottoms. Swap those sheer festival favorites for a pair in luxurious velvet, and you'll be good to go.

No need to always take style so seriously.

    Boxy clutch or satchel

    Or, replace your clutch for a cross-body bag to accessorize with that air of cool nonchalance all fashion bloggers and It-Girls just so happen to exude. Best accessory, if you ask us? Confidence. Next best? A metallic cross-body bag, that's for sure.
