Though the sweltering heat seems to be calling the shots, it’s actually time to bring our brains forward to fall fashion. That means mentally moving on from our white pants and wedge sandals, and stepping into something that says cool autumnal breeze. No need to overhaul your entire wardrobe! With a few key updates, you’ll be ahead of the game in pure seasonal style. Here are 10 ways to pre-party for fall.
Top 10 Things to Buy Right Now for Fall 2013
POP ON THE PLAID
Whether you choose a classic twist, or prefer to pose as punk, a tartan print should be packed into the mix.
GET FOXY IN FAUX FUR
Totally cozy and always feminine, a cute faux fur jacket will help you feel like a million bucks.
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND
Make a major upgrade to traditional silhouettes with a so-right-now metallic finish.
SHAPE UP WITH A STUCTURED HANDBAG
Let the lady in you hold onto her roots with a perfectly polished purse.
ADD EXTRA EMBELLISHMENTS
Bring on the bling, glitz or beaded glam! Make sure you’re fully bedazzled for fall.
KICK-IT HARD IN OVER-THE-KNEE-BOOTS
There’s a definite do, and an absolute don’t when wearing this season’s boots. Do wear tucked-in leggings, a slouchy tee and oversized blazer. Do not even think about a barely-there mini and fishnet stockings.

Don’t get locked into wearing real leather! Vegan styles boast smooth exteriors without the rough price tags.
TUNE INTO TEXTURE
Play with textures like tweed to autumn-ize your shorts, and go back-to-school in style!
COZY UP IN A LUXE SWEATSHIRT
Not quite ready for sweater weather? Try a chic sweatshirt instead! You’ll stay in comfort with an entirely fashionable feel.
BREAK OUT THE BLUE
As declared by the Pantone Fall 2013 trend report, Mykonos Blue is definitely happening! Be sure to slip this shade into next seasons look.
