LOVE THESE LOOKS to carry you into autumn and beyond
When it comes to fall fashion, there can be an overwhelming amount of looks you want to achieve this season. That is why we’ve created this “get the look” guide to show you how to nail this season’s hottest trends.
First, if you’re going to call yourself a Coloradan, your wardrobe must have the perfect coat. A LINE boutique has done it once again with its Anine Bing Finley Trench in the most opulent taupe tone. The heavyweight 100-percent suede fabric is designed with center-front closure and optional self-tie belt, making it a fall essential. The long silhouette and modern collar allow this trench to be worn with jeans and a tee during the day or layered over a beautiful pair of pants and a cashmere sweater for a night at your favorite local restaurant. If it couldn’t get any better, the leather in this garment was made with the Leather Working Group, an organization dedicated to driving positive change, enhancing transparency and making an impact across the global leather supply chain.
To top off this look, head to Dillard’s for its Hobo Pier Shoulder Bag crafted in rich brown suede with a whipstitch. Cleverly designed, the bag converts from shoulder mode to crossbody allowing for two looks in one while keeping you looking functional and fabulous.

It’s a Wrap
One of our favorite styling tricks is the power of an oversized scarf. While traditionally, you tie it around your neck for warmth, we encourage you to use the entire scarf like this one from Insprye Boutique as the hero piece of your outfit. Wrap loosely around your shoulders or tie at the waist with a vintage belt for an easy and elegant look. The simple item instantly goes from basic to bold.
As lucky as we are to have 300 days of sunshine a year, it’s essential never to forget one of the most important accessories of all, eye protection. With one of the most extensive selections of lenses on the
market, you can’t go wrong with any of Warby Parker’s styles. However, we’re swooning over its Fielder style in Cognac Tortoise Matte this fall. Made in Italy, this lightweight aviator and classic tortoise shade will keep you protected and poised all year long.

The Gina Contract Trim-Shirt and High Waist Wide Leg Pants are an autumn must-have.

In the Bag
There’s one thing you absolutely need for fall: an iconic handbag. When it comes to making the perfect pick, we suggest you go classic and courageous. Look no further than Nordstrom’s Mulberry Mini Alexa Leather Satchel in Acid Green. Named after the British fashion icon Alexa, the signature satchel is made with sustainable calfskin leather, a removable strap and a hand-braided handle, electing this handbag to carry you throughout the year. We’re coveting the vibrant green, but if this hue is too bold for you, the piece comes in an array of colors to satisfy every bag lover.
