I don’t know what it is lately but I can’t get enough of things that have little thumbholes in them, like this wrap sweatshirt. It has pockets and looks like a great shirt for lounging on the weekend and going to and from the gym, etc. It comes in regular and plus sizes at Nordstrom for $99–$109. Elevate Me Wrap Sweatshirt

This bootie from Born has a ton of good reviews — 47 of them, with 4.9 stars out of 5.0 overall. It comes in a shiny black leather, gray suede, and gray leather, as well as the burgundy we’re featuring here. I like the cutouts on the side and the zipper in the back, and Born is known for making very comfortable shoes. For the price it’s hard to go wrong: $109–$119 at Nordstrom (also available at Zappos and Amazon.) It’s available in sizes 6–11. ‘Kerri’ Bootie

Embroidered Lace Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Lace dresses like this can sometimes be a bit mumsy/MOBish (mother of the bride), but for some reason I’m loving this Tadashi Shoji number with corded lace overlays. It looks elegant, sophisticated, and (always key) versatile. I’d wear this to an anniversary dinner with my husband as well as to a holiday party or charity kind of thing. It’s available in sizes 2–16 for $268–$398, with a zillion color options and tons of good reviews. Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress

Looking for a more affordable option? Amazon has some lucky sizes from this brand on sale for as low as $85. As far as plus sizes, this City Chic dress, this Tahari dress, or this Karen Kane dress all look gorgeous, and as a brand, Brianna has a lot of options.

If you’re looking for a new pair of skinny jeans for fall, do consider velvet. There are SO MANY options, almost exclusively among the higher end denim brands right now — the Paige Verdugo in general are highly rated at Nordstrom, so they’re probably a good bet. Something about these purple J.Brand velvet pants spoke to me, though — go figure. They’re $228-$278. ‘815’ Mid Rise Velveteen Super Skinny Jeans

If you’re OK with less structure and pockets, there are a ton of affordable velvet leggings to be had, mostly in black — these Vince Camuto ones come in regular and plus sizes, and these $78 Sanctuary leggings (regular sizes only) are highly rated.

Amazon just launched an in-house brand of jeans called Hale that are designed by Adriano Goldschmied, and considering that AG jeans are usually much more expensive and the price point for Hale is under $55, that’s pretty noteworthy. (N.B. that AG jeans made TWO appearances on our list of bestselling denim a few months ago, both with a price point of around $150-$225.) These midnight ones look great — they come in sizes 24–33 and they’re $48.50, eligible for Prime. HALE Joyce Sculpted Cropped Skinny Jean

These jeans at Nordstrom are an option that’s available up to size 24.

Despite their lack of pockets, I’m still a fan of my Zella leggings — they don’t come unraveled like some brands, they don’t roll down, they’re opaque, and they’re on-trend and lovely. I’m liking these moto-inspired ones in a greenish gray (also available in black) for that BAMF vibe. Workout, brunch, some light shopping — they could take you far. They’re  $75, available in sizes XXS-XL (but alas, some colors/size combos are sold out). Note that this weekend Nordstrom is offering triple points, so it’s a great time to stock up on basics like denim, lingerie, and other basics. Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings
