While you’re poring over the latest spring 2010 runway images, let’s take a moment to remember that fall is in full swing in stores. If you haven’t had a chance to stock up on fall’s hottest trends, check out our latest Shop-A-Matic. We scoured the stores to bring you 120 of the season’s best pieces. Leggings are the pants of choice, while outerwear ranges from tough biker-inspired jackets to bold blazers with strong shoulders. If you’re looking to be a little more risqué, dresses are sultry and short, while peekaboo lace accents are flirty but delicate. Whether you’re planning to splurge on an investment piece or want to experiment with an affordable find, we found a way to incorporate trends for any budget. Plus, we asked Sophia Amoruso, owner of the carefully curated online boutique and blog Nasty Gal, to pick out sixteen of her favorites for the season. Check out what Nasty Gal is coveting for fall along with our top choices.
Bold-Shoulder Cardigan by H&M
Why We Like It: A cozy cardigan gets some padding in the shoulders but is still a body-conscious alternative to slouchier boyfriend blazers.
Sequin Tank by Wren
Why Nasty Gal Likes It: A sequined tank, tee, or jacket is an absolute must-have for fall and will turn heads through the holidays. Wren’s take has an elegant simplicity.
Leopard Scarf by aerie
Why We Like It: Animal prints took on an eighties feel, reinterpreted in vivid hues, but they can be intimidating as a focal point. Tie this scarf on as a colorful accent if you’re looking to add a splash of color.
Leather Dress by Helmut Lang
Why Nasty Gal Likes It: Though an investment, this sexy dress has an avant-garde feel, plus a solid leather construction will make it last forever.
Bowery Leather Jacket by Hurley
Why We Like It: Better known for its laid-back beachwear, Hurley’s motorcycle jacket is not only buttery soft but wallet-friendly as well.
