1. Biker Jacket
Jackets are an essential piece to add to your wardrobe in every kind of weather. They’re super great for fall as a layering piece for the often unpredictable temperatures. While the biker jacket look has come and gone over the years, this season’s version is definitely more subtle and sophisticated than the oversized 80’s version you may remember. Sleek and fitted is the way to go to achieve modern biker jacket appeal. Black is still the classic when it comes to biker jackets.

2. Studded Bags
Every gal needs a great handbag, the newest look, perhaps to go along with your new biker jacket, is a studded bag. Studs or grommets add a little bad girl chic to your trusty purse, and oversized is perfect as a casual catchall for your daily needs. Your studded bag can be any color. Choose one that fits your personality and make it your new signature look.

3. Chokers
A choker worn close around the neck is a look that has made a showing in past seasons. In fact, it was popular just this summer. So feel free to carry your choker collection over to fall or add a few if you don’t own any. Chokers can be made of leather, your favorite precious metal or even with funky beads. They allow you the fun of mixing things up and choosing a style based on your mood.

4. Leggings
The theme this fall seems to revolve around old favorites. Yes, leggings have made a comeback. In fact, they were even seen on the runway of the iconic Louis Vuitton. The new legging is far from plain, though. Choose ones with embellishments like zippers or fun, loud prints.

5. Suede Jacket
If the biker jacket is a bit too rough-edged for you, you’ll be pleased to know that suede jackets are in this year. Suede is a material that is durable, yet adds a touch of soft femininity. Choose a rich jewel tone or a soft pastel. You can’t go wrong in suede.

6. Thigh High Boots
These sexy numbers are in again. While not everyone can pull them off, don’t be afraid to give it a whirl if you want to make a statement and literally step out of your comfort zone. Worn with a short skirt or skinny jeans, thigh high boots add classic sex appeal without being too revealing. Suede, leather or even faux materials work in this fun trend item.

7. A Statement Necklace
When it comes to jewelry this season, bigger is better. Large and colorful beaded numbers, bib necklaces or even mammoth pendants work. There are really no rules, as long as your bling makes a statement about who you are and how you roll. Worn with a t-shirt and jeans or your fanciest dress, you’ll definitely feel put together with this singular accessory.

8. Capes or Capelets
Classic designers Burberry and Dior showcased capelets in their Fall Fashion Week shows, and they are definitely going to be seen on the street this season. “This piece is about sophisticated refinement, rather than being loud or showy,” said Oak Hall. Their simplicity makes its own statement. Choose a nice neutral tone and pair with a slim-fitting outfit for a look that wows.

There you have it. These are the eight stylish fall clothing items you need in your closet this year.
