Like every other pumpkin spice aficionado, we’ve been anxiously waiting summer’s surrender to cooler weather. We’re ready to pile on the sweaters, scarves, cozy fall fabrics and top it all off with jackets and boots. Luckily, we’ve got a line to celebrity stylist Karla Birbragher. The style star knows a thing or two about transitional dressing and has been eyeing key fall pieces from Target’s new owned brands to layer into her wardrobe as the temps dip. A New DayUniversal ThreadWild Fable and Prologue are serving up essential fall staples this season in all sizes, so that every fashionista can layer in style.

“Layering is definitely the way to go for unpredictable fall weather. You can add a jacket and booties to a summer dress and you’re set. Meanwhile, turtlenecks and long sleeve tees are great to layer under any dress for the cooler fall season,” Karla says. “My biggest tip is to make sure to pick pieces that are neutral or within the same color palette. If you want a statement piece that pops, let it be an acid wash denim trucker jacket, a belt bag or plaid booties!”

“The Prologue faux leather v-neck fit and flare midi dress is one of my fave fall items. I love a piece that’s versatile and this dress can be used by itself with sneakers for a casual daytime look or you can layer a crew neck t-shirt underneath and booties for a more elevated look.”

As for prints, Karla’s looking forward to incorporating leopard this season. “Animal print is a major fall trend, and since I’m all about getting the most out of my wardrobe, this versatile skirt is the perfect bold statement for that. You can wear it with a graphic t-shirt, pointed kitten heel booties and a Universal Thread denim jacket over your shoulders or you can dress it up with pumps and a satin or crepe cami.”

When it comes to accessories, Karla says, “you can’t forget leather accents to get you through the fall season looking fashionable. The faux-leather material of this Prologue midi dress is perfect to add an edgy, yet glam touch to your outfit with its simple yet sophisticated silhouette!”

Also, “fanny packs continue to be a big trend for the fall and this Universal Thread belt bag has already made its way into my closet!”
