Layer on the luxe this season with sumptuously soft layers and fall wares to brave the elements in style. From eye-catching toppers to comfortable kicks, these covet-worthy styles will ensure sartorial perfection. We’ve highlighted our must-have picks to round out your wardrobe.

Embrace a growing trend seen on runways and racks alike with a cozy yet effortlessly cool plaid button down perfect for weekend brunches and laidback nights out. Bella Dahl, an LA-based luxury brand embodies a casual yet sophisticated coastal vibe, where flowing silhouettes and laid-back glamour refine the meaning of wardrobe staples for modern downtown girl. Each piece in the Bella Dahl collection is carefully constructed with handcrafted detail, ease and versatility in styling and eye-catching finishing touches. Bella Dahl also pushes fashion forward with the use of Tencera, the brand’s proprietary blend of yarns, resulting a softer-than-soft finish. The collection is at once classic but contemporary, soft but strong. Bella Dahl offers a balance of elegance and edge. The Bella Dahl Plaid Button Placket Shirt is constructed in a loose-weave tencel in a relaxed-fit design, with rolled contrast cuffs for an eye-catching effect. The perfect addition to your fall style.

Add another layer to the mix with the Bella Dahl Army Anorak, a key piece for the season, blending fashion and function for utilitarian style.

For a functional yet season appropriate carryall, look no further than the Gaiam Ombre Tote, a versatile and stylish option to carry all your essentials and more. Hand woven by fair trade artisans in Nepal, the fleece-textured Ombre Tote is created from 100% recycled cotton and leather accents. The perfect complement to any fall look.

Visions of cozy fires and mint hot chocolate are brought to mind when wearing the Gaiam Swing Cardigan, a seasonal favorite from casual Fridays to laidback Sundays. Created by fair trade artisans in India, the soft cardigan delivers the extra warmth you need season after season, in a lightweight and naturally breathable eco bamboo and cotton blend.

Need a fall staple that can easily layer with all your closet staples? Look to Cory Vines for active and casual-wear essentials with a sensory experience. The versatile collection utilizes fabrics that are soft, light and extremely breathable. Their moisture-wicking encourages perspiration to quickly evaporate, but the subtle stretch makes it comfortable and active-friendly. The perfect combination keeps you warm through those cold winter days. The Essential Long Sleeve Shirt is created using the finest fabrics for a cozy yet feminine fit.

Meet the long nights and cold days ahead with these texture-filled and sumptuously luxe styles all season long.
