You can never go wrong with a black sweater, or have too many of them. Because they all look so different! Seriously, every above sweater is unique from the next. Whether it be the knit, cut, fabric, etc. I also love the option of wearing a sweater with jeans and sneakers, and then easily dressing up the same with a pair of heels and leather pants. Boom, completely versatile and an entirely different look. I’ve selected a few sweaters that I have my eye on and would love to add into my fall/winter wardrobe!

fur: Love Token // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs similar // turtleneck: Uniqlo // jeans: Vince // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim similar // boots: Prada

We had some really cold temps this past weekend in Chicago. Cold enough to get out my puffer coat and warmer layers. For this look, I kept it classic with dark colors and elevated basics. You can never go wrong with cozy turtlenecks, boots, and extra-warm layers when you live in the Midwest!

sweater: IRO // pants: Armani Exchange // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim similar // shades: Céline // boots: Prada 

 It’s been a pretty mild fall in Chicago – warmer temps and there are still green leaves on the trees! I’ve been able to layer different knits and I’ve just started wearing boots and sweaters. I love the large knit and texture of this sweater from IRO. It’s just the right amount of warmth, and look at those extra long sleeves! What are some of your favorite knits and sweaters this season?

blazer: Zara love this one // jeans: Rag & Bone // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // shoes: Zara similar // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim

If you haven’t noticed, black is my favorite color to wear. It’s classic, effortless and chic. I enjoy seeing color, just not wearing it. I picked up this frayed blazer a few weeks ago to add to my collection of black jackets and blazers…becasue they all look completely different. Seriously, they do! I feel like this will be a fall favorite and I can’t wait to layer it over some heavier knitwear.

leather jacket: ASOS similar // shirt: Vince // jeans: Old Navy // shades: Céline // boots: Zara 

It’s October, I guess that means it’s time to pack away the summer sandals and switch to boots and close-toed shoes for six long months.  I do love a classic boot, jeans and comfy sweater or tee. A simple, yet polished look for the weekend or even the office. What boots do you have your eye on this fall?
