It’s been ages since I’ve taken classes, but there’s just something about fall that makes me wanna embrace classic schoolgirl style. When I spotted this sweater at Zara, I fell in love instantly. And after poking around online, I just learned that it also comes in black! I can’t wait to style it up with different looks this fall. This time around, I paired it with a feminine and slightly preppy little black dress with contrasting collar. I think it’ll look equally fetching with jeans and a pair of sleek loafers for running errands over the weekend.

About the Fit:
This is your standard slightly oversized boyfriend-fit cardigan. I went with my regular size, and it fits just right. I love that it’s roomy enough to layer without being to boxy or bulky. While I do love the style of this dress (I also have it in burgundy), the fabric is a little thin and the top portion is a bit too roomy in the shoulders for my liking. It’s passable with a sweater or blazer layered on top, but could definitely stand some alterations in the arm hole area.

Suede Moto Jackets {Under $200}

Moto jackets have been having a moment for the past year, and I’ve embraced them wholeheartedly (as seen here and here). When going through my fall wardrobe, I decided it was high time for me to invest in a black suede version this season. Frugal by nature, I didn’t really want to spend more than $200 – and so my search began. I finally settled on this one, and I can’t wait to toss it on over everything from jeans and a simple tee to pretty little chiffon dresses.

About the  Fit:
In general, I prefer a sleek fitted look in moto jackets, but I specifically wanted the ability to layer this one with thicker sweaters as the temps get cooler. I ordered this jacket in large and extra-large and wound up keeping the smaller size as it provides ample room for layers without being too bulky. The leather isn’t the softest, but I’m happy with the quality given the under $200 price tag. I also tried a similar version from BlankNYC, which was a lot softer (but ran a size smaller). It was a tough choice but I went with this one because I preferred the gold hardware. I may get the sleeves tapered a bit and will do a before & after update if I do.

It’s hard for me to resist a bold stripe, so I knew I had to have this dress as soon as I saw it. This is one of the funnest (pretty sure that’s not a word, but stick with me) pieces in my current rotation. I paired it with matchy-matchy red shoes and bag, along with copious amount of pearl accessories.

About the Fit:
This dress runs very true to size and has a slightly fishtail hem that provides a little extra coverage in the back. It’s more of a trapeze shape with no waist line, which means you’ll have to cinch it with a belt if you want more definition. I’ve worn it that way as well and love how it looks. I opted to skip the belt on this particular occasion because I knew I’d be sitting at a desk all day and wanted to be comfy. If the red is a bit bold for your taste, the dress also comes in hunter green and is just perfect for this time of year.
