Fall dressing is all about being flexible; while most days are chilly, we all know there are those random days when it's inexplicably warm. Meaning you need to be prepared with layers. Sunny afternoons may call for your micro miniskirt paired with boots, while chilly evenings are all about that oversize-sweater life. And don't forget about accessories: scarves and vests are pivotal for looking put-together when all you want to wear are a pair of leggings, a tee, and comfortable sneaks.

Whether you've got holiday parties, family get-togethers, or a lot of lounging on your fall agenda, here are the key pieces that'll help your wardrobe meet the season. Pick a few, layer them up, and watch the leaves change in style.
