1. Try a Knockout Dress
"The standout piece of my fall collection has to be the Velvet Floral Burnout dress. I love that it definitely seems like an evening piece, but can be worn over jeans for a more casual look. It just looks amazing at every angle and on every body type."
Yona New York | $298
2. Invest in the Classics
"My rule is to always invest in a timeless piece that you know you will love and wear forever. A perfect fitting dress or a classic coat are pieces I would invest in, as you can pull it out and wear over and over again. Something like fun trendy tee that you may only wear a couple times is a perfect steal in fast fashion."
Universal Standard | $230
3. Luxe Fabrics Will Elevate Your Look
"Curves, or no curves, my favorite trends this season include luxe fabrics, updated classics, and comfort-meets-fashion styles. Just because you are not a size 2, doesn’t mean you should have to compromise high-quality fabric or style, everything should be available to you."
Simply Be | $100
4. Mules Made a Huge Comeback
"I love a mule! It's great to see comfort and fashion meeting finally. There are so many different designs to choose from this season which make it’s fun and a way to add your personal touch."
Torrid | $41 (originally $63)
5. The Standouts
"1. The moody florals of fall are a great way to add a print to an outfit whether it’s a dress, top, or pants (Eloquii skirt, $100; eloquii.com). 2. Try velvet! I am so happy the velvet trend is sticking around. I love this fabric and how luxurious it looks and feels, especially in rich jewel tones (Lane Bryant t-shirt, $40; lanebryant.com). 3. Suits have made a comeback for both men and women. Invest in classic separates that can be worn together or by themselves to make your wardrobe work for you (Ashley Stewart suit, from $35 [originally from $50]; ashleystewart.com)."
