It’s easy to get totally caught up in summer, but as kid’s clothing catalogs and the seasonal section of the grocery stores love to remind us far too soon, fall will eventually arrive. With that comes the changing of the wardrobe. Here are a few pieces we’re shopping for as we look ahead to fall (although our beach bags are still clutched firmly in hand).
No longer solely the sartorial choice of comic-book superheroes, the trench cape is your new fall best friend. Flattering with pencil skirts or narrow cropped trousers, this versatile piece will get you through wind and rain and will finally highlight your role as a real-life superhero.
On days when you need an effortlessly cool, simple style — that will keep you warm at the soccer field but still look good at drinks after work — a bomber jacket has your back. This floral embroidered edition layers perfectly over a short-sleeved Body Bark scoop-neck. Wear it to work with a skirt, or throw on a pair of skinny jeans for a dinner out.
If you’re in the professional world (or if you’re a #girlboss in general), there’s a good chance you already have at least one go-to blazer. If not, now’s the time to start shopping for one. It’s becoming a trend in and out of the office, so it’s the perfect piece to go from office chic to happy hour classy. We like this lapel-less open-front style for its possibilities with flowy dresses and tops in a business setting, but the best thing about this classic is that it can be about as dressy or as casual as you want.
When it’s no longer warm enough to wear sandals but not quite wear-snow-boots-and-bring-flats weather, lace-up booties are a great footwear solution. Go dramatic with this pointy-toed, Jenner-inspired style, or go for a chunky heel and simple style that will fit seamlessly with just about any outfit.
Speaking of dramatic footwear, if you haven’t yet subscribed to the over-the-knee boot trend, this is your year. You can wear them with leggings, skinny jeans and short skirts (really!), with or without tights. They’ll instantly update any outfit, so if you like your wardrobe staples but feel like you need to spice up your rotation, try a pair of these sleek, low-slung beauties.
Looking for a versatile fall staple? The Body Bark Crewneck Long Sleeve is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. Not only is it extremely comfortable and cozy (seriously, it’s the softest in the market), but it can be worn alone or layered under a sweater, silk top or a jacket. Whether you’re wearing this luxury shirt snuggled up at home with a good book, at the office under a chic blazer, or just out on the town the Body Bark Crewneck Long sleeve top will leave you feeling fabulous, comfortable and chic for all occasions.
