B is for Beret
Put a lid on it, your head that is. Hands down the simplest stylish piece you can ever invest in for the fall is a classic knit beret. Keeping you warm in fall and winter, the knit beret goes perfectly with all jackets, from leather to peacoat.
Its best to choose either a grey, black, white, or beige beret so you can mix and match with all of your wardrobe.

Blacks are essential, nudes give you runway-worth legs, but blue pumps may just be your secret weapon this season.
We all fell so deeply in love with Carrie's "Something Blue" Monolos but they aren't exactly the perfect shoe for the little black dress.
Thankfully Yves Saint Laurent has electric blue suede pumps made for this exact reason, at $720 a pair here. But fear not,we all have the chance to get "something blue" because Steve Madden has made the same shoe just at a fraction of the price, at $89.95 a pair here.
Top Gun, the movie that put Tom Cruise on the map also established a piece of outerwear that constantly gets reinvented in the North American fall wardrobe: the shearling jacket.
According to the brilliant writers at WhoWhatWear, the shearling jacket is here to replace the army jacket and with the comfy trim comes a hefty price tag. Ranging anywhere from $100-$2000 its safe to say you can find a piece that will fit your budget, no matter what it is.
The jacket is definitely light enough for the fall weather and the trim is both functional and sets the coat apart from leather bombers, the only reason why it doesn't make it as a "fall basic" is the fact its cropped. Finding the perfect length is essential to any body type so its important to make sure the jacket both looks and feels right.

R is for Riding Boot
It's time, fall is here, out goes the sunshine and in comes the workload. To lighten the mood we have fashion to look to and like every season, fall comes with its own inherit fashion basics.
Boots are your best bet for fall footwear and my absolute everyday favorite has to be the riding boot. Best worn over jeans or tights with a chunky knit sweater, finding the perfect pair is essential to your fall wardrobe.
