It’s official – fall is here. Ok, we may technically have another couple of weeks before the calendar says it’s fall, but this weather has me thinking about cozy sweaters and over-the-knee boots. This season is all about mock neck styles, layers, layers and more layers and oversized well, everything. Thankfully for those of us that live in a “business casual” world (I don’t miss those power suit days) these trends easily translate into stylish and appropriate 9 to 5 wear that is still cute enough for a night out. See how our fall ‘Girl in Focus’ Nira Arora wears some of this fall’s hottest looks.
Perfect For: A Day at Work
"Leather leggings are my go to for the fall season- you can tone them down or dress them up- and here I love the toned down look with a dark burgundy mock neck and a blazer trench which screams I’m ready for Fall. The peep toe shoe flirts with the idea that you are slowly making your way into the new season and haven’t jumped all in- quite yet! I would wear this exact look to work- cozy and comfy for my 3:40am wakeup call!" - Nira Arora

Perfect For: Date Night with the Hubby
"Your must have for Fall?? An oversized something!! In this case the oversized coat and the oversized black sweater are being utilized. Oversizing it can accentuate many other pieces that you already have in your closet. For example a nice fitted skirt or a fun pair of shoes. Play around and have fun! Date night with the hubby- absolutely perfect." - Nira Arora
Perfect For: Drinks with the Girls
"Seriously in love with these over-the-knee-boots- so incredibly versatile and comfortable! Pairing these boots with a leather skirt gives it that next level of allure without being over the top - Going out for dinner and drinks with the girls- here I come!" - Nira Arora
