Fall is arguably the most exciting season for the fashion obsessed. The crisp air and slight breeze begs for layers of boiled wool and pebbled leather over light pima cottons and coated linens. Finally, we can wear more than two of our favorites at once. This is the perfect time to play with textures, whether it be a wool vest over a leather jacket, or a new pair of cashmere tights under the mini-skirt that even the coolest fall day can't make you put away for next summer.
At INA, we're all about mixing our favorite knits with harder fabrics like leather or paper thin fabrics such as nylon. Even better is when a designer does the work for us. The pieces shown below are pieces from our stores that effortlessly mix medias or add texture to an otherwise simple fall staple.

Sometimes all it takes to make you feel fantastic is the right pair of shoes. Whether on a budget or on the prowl, a new pair of shoes can be all you need to mix up your current go-to outfit, and can get a lot of mileage for your money. The Prada hiking boots shown above are sleek and adorned with all the bells and whistles you'd hope for, and yet also the promise to get better with age.

Rick Owens has created the cocoon coat befitting of the most exotic butterfly. Covering the collar with a high shoulder closure, this cashmere wrap coat's slim arms and slightly a-line body make for a strong silhouette while the seam detailing is an indulgent close-up.
Best of all, it can be worn over anything. Whether to dinner over a dress or to work over trousers, you'd probably even wear it at home with the AC on because it is so soft, you'd never want to take it off.

I love to buy accessories when I'm budgeting because they are a blessing in a myriad of ways. Since I tend to lean towards black in the fall with sporadic periods of charcoal or navy, I love these accent pieces that add a complimentary pop in an otherwise monochromatic wardrobe.
