WORDS KIM IZZO

There are many reasons to love the autumn season. Think pumpkin spice, fall foliage, cozy sweaters, and fresh, crisp air. The fall is also a wonderful time of year to travel because it’s often less crowded at popular tourist sights and the weather is cooler but not cold. One of the most popular fall activities is taking in the gorgeous autumn leaves, whether you’re touring the fall colors of New England, taking a stroll in the Cotswold’s, or a river cruise along the Danube, the change of season is breathtaking.

Fall is also synonymous with fashion, when designers and retail brands put out their latest wardrobe must-haves to ensure you greet the season in style. If you are planning your next getaway for fall, it’s wise to know what to take, given the mix of weather you might find at your destination.

We’ve narrowed down the choices to our top ten fall fashion essentials that will get you through your trip in style. And of course, pack an umbrella in case.

What: A Great Blazer

Why:

Toss aside your preconceived notions that blazers are for work, this versatile garment multitasks as much as you do. Pair it with denim, dresses, or shorts for instant sophistication and a layer of warmth.

What: A Slim Pant

Why:

A pair of dressier pants is great way to add polish to your look when going out for dinner in a new town or city, without being too formal. Try a pair with all-day comfort stretch that will take you from the museum tour to dinner al fresco without having to change.

What: A Layering Piece

Why:

Comfort is key when traveling, and a body smoothing, buttery-soft stretch fabric top is as flexible as it gets. Perfect when paired with denim or pants and will always ensure you look put together.

What: A Great Pair of Jeans

Why:

Denim is a wardrobe staple and a traveler’s BFF, durable, comfortable, and stylish, you can’t beat jeans. Try a pair of Girlfriend jeans, which are cut to sit higher on the hips for a female-flattering shape. And just because you’re on the road (or airplane or train) doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in the latest silhouette of wide leg jeans, a thoroughly modern vibe no matter what you’re doing.

What: A Little Black Dress

Why:

Your suitcase isn’t considered fully packed without a LBD. Try one that sculpts, smooths, and shapes for easy glamour on the road.

What: A Reversible Belt

Why:

A great belt can up the glam quotient on pants and dresses. Why not opt for one that does double duty by being reversible so it’s two belts in one? A belt made from vegan leather is also a nice choice.

What: A Pair of Boots

Why:

No matter what type of trip you’re taking, chances are you’ll be doing a lot of walking. And given it’s the fall season, a pair of comfortable flats and sneaks will ensure you can tour the sights. But why not toss in one pair of super stylish mid-heel boots to amp up jeans and dresses?

What: A Classic Shirt

Why:

You can’t go wrong packing a feminine shirt along for the ride. Choose one from a soft, flowy fabric for simple, easy style.

What: The Perfect Tee

Why:

You never can be sure in fall if the weather will be hot or cold. Best be prepared by bringing a favorite tee. It’s an iconic look for any season or occasion.

What: A Neutral Print Dress

Why:

The real question is why not? The LBD is a must-have, but so is one item in your suitcase that is a bold color or print in fall hues. Animal and snake prints are considered neutrals and will work for any occasion.
