The ultimate fall 2010 shopping list, part 3

The StyleBakery editors recently shared 100 of their favorite must-haves for fall, now we’ve asked some of our favorite fashion bloggers to share their must-buys of the season.


Woollen Poncho with Fringes and Fur Hood, $89.90 at

“A poncho is more sporty-chic than an overcoat. It looks as good over jeans as it does with leggings and over the knee boots.”

– Jean Voute, Style Observer


Extended Tab Belt, $34.90 at

“So I realize my must-have is ‘just’ a belt, but this fall accessory can be seriously life-changing: it’s the perfect way to define your waistline and keep open sweaters in place, whether you’re layering a cozy knit sweater-vest over a dress or cinching a chunky cocoon cardigan over a blouse and skinny jeans. You’ll stay warmer, too!”

– Dianna Baros, The Budget Babe


Alice + Olivia Wool Sateen Flared Waist Blazer, $396 at

“This super versatile blazer can be worn with leggings, jeans, slacks and even cocktail dresses; it is great for travel too! It also has a touch of spandex, making it the most comfortable, stylish piece in your closet.”

– Hope DeAngelis Schmid, The Jet Set Girls


A.P.C. Woolen Cloche Hat, $210 at

“A.P.C’s woolen cloche hat is at the top of my list this fall. It’s mysterious, romantic, and keeps off the chill. It will make me look just enough like a girl detective, and just enough like a sexy Berlin-dwelling hipster.”

– Dannielle Kyrillos,


Helmut Lang Shearling-Trimmed Jersey Jacket, $1175 at

“Shearling-trimmed leather jackets are everywhere for fall, but this version feels just a little more wearable for us California girls because it pairs casual jersey with leather sleeves.”

– Stephanie Rahlfs, Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle


J. Crew Crystal Bloom Necklace, $150 at

“After years of cultivating a wardrobe worthy of an episode of Hoarders, I decided to embark on a wardrobe challenge where I only wore fifteen pieces of clothing over the course of thirty days. The first week was fanciful and fun, however, as the weeks progressed and my remixing grew exhausting, I depended on accessories to elevate my repertoire. From faceted cocktail rings in the shape of dragonflies to necklaces fashioned from layers of twisted chains and pearls, I discovered that jewelry proved to be an easy and affordable way to update my look. And after the wardrobe challenge came to a close, I found myself caring less about acquiring clothes en masse, and more about how I can strategically utilize accessories, namely, pieces of interest, to freshen up navy blazers and smart shifts. Right now I’m obsessing over J. Crew’s Crystal Bloom Necklace, which is a gush of warm air amidst the chill of the holiday season. The silk chiffon petals, the patina of an antique-inspired chain, the light-catching faceted stones make this a piece worth coveting. So if you’re keen on dressing up a weekday staple, I implore you to invest in eclectic, decidedly feminine pieces.”
