Fall Denim Essentials

Since there's just one week left before September begins, it only makes sense to focus on our fall wardrobes from here on out.  So today I'm sharing with you the 3 must-have denim pieces you need for the coming season.  I'll not only explain why you need them, but I'll give styling ideas in addition to how I'm wearing them here.  I'd love to hear your favorites in the comments below & what denim pieces you are loving right now!

1) The Denim Vest
It took me a little while to jump on this bandwagon, but I'm so glad I did!  This is the perfect layering piece for fall - try it over a floral dress with ankle boots for a boho vibe, wear it over a turtleneck with tweed shorts or layer underneath your fall coat with the collar peeking out.

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew top (similar), c/o Old Navy Denim Vest, GapKids coat (similar here or here), Forever 21 Pants
Charles Jourdan Pumps, Zara tote (similar here or here), Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: Vintage & c/o Stella & Dot, ASOS ring (similar), Lips: Marc Jacobs Lip Gel All The Way  

2) A Chambray Shirt
I'll be completely honest - I have a serious collection of chambray, but this cut & wash just might be my absolute favorite yet.  Dress up with a leather pencil skirt for a night out, wear under a schoolboy blazer with slim cut trousers for the office or throw on with your favorite jeans (see number 3) for an effortless denim-on-denim look.

What I'm wearing:
Zara jacket (similar here or here), c/o Old Navy Chambray Shirt, The Limited skirt (similar here or here), 
c/o JustFab Anais Heels, Zara bag (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Cherish

3) Boyfriend Jeans
Consider these your new go-to pair of denim.  Easy to throw on with a sweatshirt or graphic tee for the weekend, but equally cool (& slightly unexpected) with a tailored blazer and classic pumps.  The subtle skinny fit of these ensures they aren't too baggy but still with a relaxed, comfortable, borrowed-from-the-boys feel.

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew blouse (similar here or here), J. Crew Sweater (on sale!), Gap blazer (similar), 
c/o Old Navy Boyfriend Jeans, Guess pumps (similar here or here), Danielle Nicole Clutch, Pieces necklace (similar), Lips: Almay Liquid Lip Balm Pink Pout
