Whether posing atop SUV’s with your sibs, or traipsing through the airport, plaid will surely make you pop! Plaid shirts are the obvious call for casual engagements, though cute skirts and full on frocks will offer you a schoolgirl chic aura that will be hard to ignore.

Capes come and go, though this year’s versions are slightly more structured, and undoubtedly more stylish. Be Fall perfect with a cape that is more fashion than function. Think bright colors, patterns, and cool embellishments.

These aren’t your mother’s jeans! Whether you’re going for denim on denim or trying out a patched look, jeans are getting an upgrade for fall. Whatever you choose, make sure your accessories are muted. Think nude pumps and a matching clutch.
