Fall Must Haves: Moto Jacket and Ankle Boots

For me, August is bitter-sweet.  The days are a little shorter, the nights are getting cooler, and the summer days are numbered at this point.  On the other hand, as fall hits the air we can start thinking about our wardrobes.   This week I’m spotlighting my fall must-haves.  I’ve made a list (you should too) of the key pieces I need to transition into fall. Starting with the moto jacket and ankle bootie, a reoccurring favorite.

Moto jackets and ankle booties are nothing new, but this season the updates are spot on. Look for new textures and updated details in moto jackets. Leather is always great, but  don’t underestimate the wearability of  boucle, suede, and wool. And there are tons of new ankle booties that replace the tall or mid-calf boots in your closet. Whether it’s buckles, studs, cut outs, or straps, honestly you will need several pairs. A moto jacket and black ankle bootie paired with a skinny bottom and a simple top is bound to be one of the key uniforms for fall.

Happy shopping!
