Sarah, our Personal Stylist Manager at South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), took time during our busy Anniversary Sale to throw out her most-wanted Anniversary items.

Pour la Victoire ‘Prado’ Tote. This is a great bag for fall! It offers function and fashion at a fabulous price.

Stuart Weitzman ‘Accumulate’ Boot. The perfect blend of classic and tough makes this boot extremely versatile.

Zella ‘Live-In Leggings’. Every girl should own these. I wear mine with oversized sweaters and boots. The best part is, you can lose the boots, put on a Zella tee and head to yoga.

Truth & Pride Perforated Leather Biker Jacket. I am crazy about this leather jacket! It works so easily with other pieces, and its biker cut will rev up your fall wardrobe in an instant!

Paige ‘Skyline Skinny’ Jeans. I love the color of the denim and fit of these jeans. The soft grey is a fantastic neutral that will become your go-to bottom for fall.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized Sunglasses. New sunnies are not a summer-only necessity; as the seasons change, so should your shades. This style pictured is the perfect way to break into a larger frame. Go for it!

Joan & David ‘Quimberly’ Pump. A playful-yet-chic pump is the perfect balance to fall’s knits and leather. Wear it to work with a pencil skirt for a sophisticated look, or rock skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a night out.

Vince Boatneck Tee. Premium basics are a wise choice. You need to have cozy, yet stylish, layering pieces to be ready for any kind of weather. Throw it on under a knit or a leather jacket—this tee can do it all!

Clarisonic Mia 2. This is my number-one beauty must-have! Your skin will glow, and you’ll get the most out of your products. This is a game-changer for your skin.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘M.A.C.’ Python-Embossed Crossbody Clutch. Python is a playful way to keep things neutral while adding texture.

Fall’s Easy Third Pieces

While it’s still blazing hot throughout most of the country, we’re looking forward to wearing fall’s go-to third pieces—the capes, jackets and vests that instantly complete any look.

1 – Heritage Jackets. Equestrian-inspired tweeds and plaids mix with suede and feminine tailoring to bring a touch of country-manor charm to your fall wardrobe. And the mini-proportioned version—the shrunken blazer—features big in your layering scheme when worn over tunic-length blouses. [Pictured: Willow & Clay Plaid Riding Jacket]

2 – Capes. Romantic, intriguing and dramatic, capes make us yearn for the nip of fall weather. But as versatile as they are eye-catching, capes crave balance—slim pants and platform-heeled booties will do the trick. [Pictured: Juicy Couture ‘Jane’ Wool Blend Cape]

3 – Vests. Woolly, furry or simply sleek, wear a vest over your long-sleeve bow blouses for a groovy boho-girl vibe. For a borrowed-from-the-BF look, try a vest in a toned-down texture over a plaid button-down. [Pictured: Sanctuary ‘Natalie’ Faux Fur Vest]

4 – Leather Jackets. Toughen up fall’s fluidly femme dresses and blouses—without going to Sturgis-level extremes—with buttery leather jackets that boast moto-inspired zippers and collars, and even a little Easy Rider fringe. [Pictured: Andrew Marc Crop Lambskin Leather Jacket]

5 – Knit Blazers. Give a bit of polish to understated tees with structured blazers and jackets, softened up for fall in refined knit fabrications. [Pictured: Bailey 44 ‘Joie de Vivre’ Knit Jacket]
