Bomber Jacket  |  Block Heels Shoes |  Backpack Bag 

Three fall accessories that will transform any standard outfit to uber chic greatness are the bomber jacket, backpack bag, and block heel shoes.  Extra points of style cred when these accessories are in BLACK.  The bomber jacket is actually quite the versatile jacket that can be worn with just about anything! It will make your outfit stand out with urban style.

The one I am wearing I purchase vintage from ebay. I like to search on ebay from time to time to snatch super cool one-of-a-kind pieces at steal prices.  However, there is a similar bomber jacket here from Nordstrom Rack that looks like a good stand in.

The block heel is another style trend making a huge statement in fashion!  The block heel is more substantial giving your look a more grounded appeal.  Often times the heel becomes the focal point where shoe designers incorporate an unique design element.  For example, the one I am wearing from Steve Madden the block heel is highlighted in a gorgeous rich gold tone metal (no longer available, similar boot)! To die for, right!?!

You may think I am weird, but I have never been a designer only purse crazy kind of gal.  I like to spend my money on clothes, shoes and jewelry!  But, I do know that having a bag is necessary to haul your stuff! I think of the many years I have used a diaper bag. My favorite diaper bag was one from Petunia Pickle Bottom that wears like a backpack. So, it was a natural preference for me to embrace the new purse trend of backpack bags like the one seen here from Target! Perfect combination of style and function.  Score!

I have curated a sample of swanky pieces that will up your style game when paired with simple basics like a shirt dress and t-shirt & jeans for example.  The great thing about it being black is that it will pair well with other colors making it a great investment for your wardrobe.
