The cold has finally started to onset in Louisville. The highs are in the 60s and the lows have been in the 30s. Now is the time to put away your flip flops and tank tops. While you tuck away your short shorts you need to take the time to read my top articles of clothing to get you through this fall in style.

1) The Leather Jacket


Every girl needs a leather jacket. I my is the perfect staple item to bring any look together. Leather jackets are a timeless article of clothing. They are also unisex and can be quite feminine or masculine. The basic black leather jacket is perfect for a classic look, but if you prefer something with a little more edge try a red leather jacket for that extra pow..

2) Knee/Thigh High Boots


Ok girls, now is the time we have all been waiting for- boot seasons. Ankle boots and booties are nice, but to really put some ump in your look get yourself a pair of thigh highs! For those of us who love to wear dresses, but fear the cold, will become best friends with these boots. The thigh high boot indeed comes up to the thigh, which will protect these body parts from the cold. Thigh high boots are the perfect tool for fall showcase your sexuality.

3) UGGS

4) Wool Leggings


Wool leggings are a big necessity. They keep you warm and are very comfortable. These leggings can be worn under clothing –such as shorts or dresses- which can enhance your outfit. Wool leggings can also be worn as pants without the fear of your undergarments showing through like thinner leggings. These leggings hug your body in the right places and compliment bottoms of all sorts.
