Fall 2008 Report: The Boyfriend Cardigan




The Boyfriend Cardigan is another must-have item this season. Buy versions that are thin and long, the cardigans will make great layering pieces over floaty floral dresses or a simple tank with wide-leg pants. Add a thin belt to slightly cinch the waist, you will then have an updated Fall look that's modern instead of dowdy. We especially like J Crew's version in light-weight merino wool and glass-buttons. The cardigan exudes elegance without being too pretentious.

Fall 2008 Report: Peep-toe Booties




Carrying on the trend of booties and strong accessories from last fall, this season IT item seems to be the peep-toe booties. Paired with dark colored or black opague tights, the peep-toe booties are a fresh way to transition from summer to fall. Look for ones that have elegant cutouts at unexpected places or embellishments to jazz up your fall outfits!
