Where did summer go? It feels as if the Fourth of July was just yesterday! Regardless, fall is officially here and one of the many things that gets me excited for fall is the fashion! Fall brings back comfy, laid back outfits, whether worn in rain or shine. This post will feature my 5 fall essentials that I think will be very useful pieces for the upcoming season. Each piece can be worn to fit your style or your level of comfort. Whether for school or a night out, all the pieces featured in this post are all basic pieces while still being a little trendy.

Nothing says casual like a simple plaid print! Flannels and plaid prints are usually associated with the fall and cooler months, however, this season, lighter plaid tops have been seen in almost every store. Lighter plaid tops are a great transition piece between summer and fall and are easy to layer. Plaid tops also come in a variety of colors and are perfect for a simple school outfit when paired with a pair of skinny jeans and booties.

Moto jackets are currently one of the more edgier trends, however, don't let the edge scare you away! There are wide range of moto jackets in stores right now and there is one to fit any style! If you prefer items with less edge, try a tweed moto jacket, like the one shown in the center. The light color and tweed material makes the jacket more feminine and classic while still incorporating the trend. If you like more edgier looks, go for a simple black leather moto jacket. Tan leather moto jackets also add edge, while adding a bit of sophistication.

Everyone should own a pair of skinny jeans for the fall. Not only are they casual, but they go with almost any top and color. Dark wash skinny jeans are a great basic jean that looks chic while still being comfortable. Fall is also a great time to pull out the darker colors, like black and grey. Black skinny jeans and grey skinny jeans also can go with nearly every color, but can add a little bit of edge or sophistication to the outfit, depending on how it is styled.

Heeled booties was a gift sent to women of all heights, especially those on the shorter side! Taller boots have been in style for several years and it can sometimes feel like you are drowning in your boots. Booties are a great way to show off some more leg while also adding some height, which are great for those on the shorter side, including myself! Booties also come in a variety of styles, from wedges to fringe.

Quilted bags automatically add sophistication and class to any outfit (well, almost any outfit). Rebecca Minkoff released her quilted crossbody earlier this year, which seemed to cause other companies to follow close in their footsteps. Quilted handbags are a great essential for a night out, but can also be incorporated during the day, such as with a tote like the one shown by BP.
