    I’m a little behind (or ahead) in looking at fall wardrobes, but I’m starting a new job this fall in the Northeast and am trying to find out what is fashionable for autumn. In Florida, we don’t really change styles with the seasons all that much ;-). Thanks for the comprehensive list of outfits and accessories, but my question is, will this still be “in” for this upcoming fall season, or are some of the items going out of style? Thanks for the help! I want to start putting together a wardrobe now so I’m not caught by surprise come September!

    • I think the best idea is to have a wardrobe of classic pieces that will work year after year. Then add some updated fashion jewelery or other accessories to update the look. A certain print or color or handbag can update your look as well. has great info on current trends.

    • One difference between the North and South is that we tend to wear lighter and brighter colors. If you’re moving to New York I’d recommend black as your main neutral. Or dark Navy if you are moving to other northeast states.
