The weather in Baton Rouge has finally cooled down a little.
This time of year is always the most fun and experimental time for styling outfits.
Loafers, sweaters, blazers, boots and tights are just a few of the must-have pieces to add to your wardrobe this fall.

Disclaimer: to be considered stylish doesn’t mean you have to be in luxury labels head to toe. Whether you’re a thrift queen, a Target lover or an avid shopper of some other brand, you can find these essentials pretty much anywhere and everywhere.
Here’s what’s all the rage this fall.
No, I’m not talking about Red (Taylor’s version), even though the album screams fall vibes, but the color red. Whether you’re making a bold statement in a monochromatic look or just adding a pop of color to your ensemble, red is in. (This includes a fabulous red lip and manicure moment, friends.)
Loafers add a preppy yet sophisticated feel to an outfit. Try styling them with a maxi or mini skirt, tights and a cropped sweater for the perfect look—jeans and a blazer work well, too.
Sneakers never go out of style and will always find a place in your lookbook year-round. Adidas Samba’s are becoming a staple when it comes to easy and effortless shoes.
Uggs have become a hot commodity in fashion once again. It’s fun to see how trends evolve. The days of wearing a Juicy Couture Track Suit with your tall classic Uggs may be so 2000s; however, newer styles of the beloved boot have gained popularity. The Ugg Classic Ultra mini Boots are easy to style with sweats, jeans, etc. Celebrities like Keke Palmer, Elsa Hosk, Gigi and Bella Hadid are among the many who sport Uggs.
A Blazer is something everyone should have in their closet. Easy to dress up or down. Perfect for a night out or your 10:30 a.m. lecture.
6. Striped Sweaters
It’s classic and cozy and can be worn in a variety of ways, so style it to your liking and add a beret if you’re feeling oh-so chic.
7. Ballet Flats/Ballet Core
Sometime last year, ballet flats returned to every fashion girl’s wardrobe. The trend took over TikTok alongside wrap sweaters, skirts, tights, leg warmers and a soft color palette featuring shades of baby pinks and nudes. Embody your inner Ballerina this fall. From Miu Miu, H&M, Steve Madden and Amazon, you’re sure to find the perfect pair.
Spice up your looks this season with a sassy pair of high heel boots. The Uggs are perfect for running around campus, but a heel or platform is definitely perfect for taking on the town. Carrie Bradshaw knew a thing or two about the power of a fabulous boot.
9. Totes, Sunglasses, Hats, Scarves, Oh My
The list of accessories is never-ending. The pieces listed above are year-round favorites. You can find these staples at any price point and in various shops!
10. Headbands/Hair accessories
Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and add a headband to your look. It’s the perfect finishing touch to an outfit. You know this iconic “Gossip Girl” character would approve.
