Lately, I can’t stop talking about fall and all my favorite trends (here), but with the season officially kicking off on Saturday, I thought it’d be the perfect time to celebrate by sharing the best fall hero pieces to shop now. With the right hero pieces, you’ll have an endless array of outfits to wear from cool mornings at the office to weekend trips at the mountains. I’m excited to be partnering with Marks & Spencer again to share the exact fall hero pieces you’ll need and wear throughout the season. You guys know I’m all about versatility so take note because these pieces could translate into staples for building up a strong cold weather wardrobe.

One of the best things about the colder season is the influx of textures. Of course, I always have my eyes on fur and teddy styles, corduroy textures, shearling and the puffers. Corduroy is a staple piece that returns every year, and that’s why it’s an essential investment piece. I fell for this feminine corduroy mini skirt when I saw it in the Marks & Spencer’s new arrivals – the hardest decision was picking between the blush or berry colors!
I’m one of those girls who love switching up my cold weather accessories to accommodate my outfit. From head gear to scarves, fall accessories have taken a dramatic turn. Think supersized scarves in rich color palettes, printed boots, and menswear-inspired fedoras. The animal print booties are the perfect way to punctuate any outfit and take a look from basic to luxury with an edge. Or easily dress up a colorful crossbody bag with a statement scarf!
This is the obvious category that transcends age. No matter how old you are, pieces like a turtleneck jumper, chunky knit, and classic blazer are absolute must-haves. They are perfect for teaming up with dresses, jeans, or blazers – and can easily be peeled off. With the ability to be dressed up or down, these pieces make up the building blocks of a fall wardrobe. Make sure to start the season strong with some layering essentials you can rely on like this classic chunky knit sweater.
The best fall hero pieces are retro-inspired with a modern feel. And the heritage plaid print is one of those items I can’t wait to get into my wardrobe. I love how plaid makes for ideal layering pieces whether it’s a glen plaid blazer or tartan dress. Marks & Spencer’s fusion of classic silhouettes with daring designs make plaid an on-trend must have this season. The asymmetrical proportions and pleated accents are so good!
