Fall is officially in the air! Our Chicago Bitches experienced some cooler temperatures a bit before the East Coast Bitches and already have broken out their light knits, boots, and autumn accessories.

This is pretty much the basic Bitch uniform; tuck your skinny jeans in some brown boots, layer on an oversized sweater, and jet off to brunch. The look is timeless and effortless, as pictured by our Chicago editor Alexis.

Good skinny jeans are hard to come by. Good skinny jeans in fall colors? Even harder. NY Baby Bitch Reily struck gold with these Paige skinnies and lives in the festive denim this time of year.

Bomber jackets are a fall must have.  This jacket can be dressed down with jeans and a pair of chucks, or pair it with a mini skirt and tights to dress it up. 

Fall=sports and DC editor Steph could not be more excited to embrace her inner tomboy with graphic tees paired with leather pencil skirts, like this olive green one, and a baseball hat. NYC editor Ally also likes the sporty, versatile look of this grid check Shirttail Mini Skirt by Madewell; it can go with anything from tennies to booties.

Chicago editor Allison loves a good jumpsuit and has finally found ‘the one’.  This Ted Baker number takes black and white and makes it chic without being too dressy.  NYC Social Bitch Ann Louise is also embracing the jumpsuit trend this fall, and this moss green utility jumpsuit from Anthropologie is the perfect starter piece for this fashionista’s closet. 

Amanda is staying fashionable while being frugal with this Forever 21 turtleneck with a surprise side-slit. Who doesn’t love staying bundled up without feeling too covered up. 

DC Social Bitch Annie loves an easy tunic sweater like this one from Free People to throw over a tank on a chilly evening. 

When it comes to Chicago fall style, the puffy vest is a staple. Chicago Social Bitch Amber loves the J.Crew quilted vest, it’s thin enough to wear under a jacket and the buffalo check is the perfect preppy pattern.


The poncho is making a comeback, ladies. Wrap up this fall with this easy, blanket-like accessory.

Chicago Editor Alexis is loving a great cross body bag this fall, like this black Liebeskind. Perfect for carrying all of your Bitch essentials, its pairs well for all occasions, day or night. 

In true back-to-school fashion, Steph swapped out her over the shoulder work tote, for a black and leather Herschel backpack, which doubles as her gym bag. 

Tennis shoes are great and sandals are nice, but boots are every city girl’s favorite fall accessory. Reily suggests Steve Madden for all your boot needs, she loves her boy Steve. Chicago editor Allison will be traipsing around Chicago in these Frye Jackie Button boots all season all. These Adele Suede Ankle Boots from J. Crew are at the top of Ann Louise’s must-have list this fall. She loves that they can either be worn casually with distressed boyfriend jeans, or dressed up with a chic maxi dress. 

Amber tends to fall for anything with tassels and these French Connection booties are no exception. 

After Ally got over how much they look like the Irish dancing shoes of her youth, she’s now fully embraced the lace-up flats trend. She’s currently lusting over these camel beauties by Raye.

Amanda’s J.Crew felt hat with a leather band will be turning heads this fall. Bedhead, be damned.

It’s scarf season! How cute is this zippy infinity scarf from Nordstrom? Reily swears by the infinity scarf; it’s so simple. Plaid blanket scarves are a fall staple every Bitch should have in her closet. Ann Louise loves this Quartier Plaid Scarf from Anthropologie; the hint of coral is slightly reminiscent of summer, while the plaid ties perfectly into fall. 



Chicago wind can be harsh during the fall and winter months, so Alexis uses Rose Floral Water by Fresh to moisturize and tone her skin. 

The summer sun has fried her hair so Annie relies on this Black Seed Dry Oil to replenish her strands. Preparing for a Chicago winter means using a lot of argan oil for Allison. For her hair, Allison uses Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Hair Serum to protect her tresses from the ‘windy city.’ 

Ally is excited to transition her polish colors to rich fall shades like oxblood and copper metallics. She’s particularly keen on ‘Leggy Legend‘ from essie’s fall line.

Amanda isn’t ready to say goodbye to her summer glow quite yet. That’s why she’s stuck on this illuminating finish powder from Sephora. 

After an easy going summer make-up routine, keep your fall day to night look (and routine) simple, with the swipe of a Nars velvet shadow stick. Steph’s been loving Oaxaca as an eyeliner for day and an eyeshadow for a dramatic nighttime look.
