The stores are bursting at the seams with fall merchandise. Glamour magazine editor in chief Cindi Leive sifted through it and chose her favorites.
Her picks for the five "must-have" items are:
-- A peasant blouse. This isn't a "summer of love" throwback, says Leive. It's current looking, and its available in every color and price range.
-- Great boots. Most boots with even a little heel are dressy enough to wear to work, with full, long or miniskirts, but they do double-duty on the weekend because they also look good with jeans.
-- Something in leather or suede. From a full coat to a skirt or even a handbag, there are dozens of options to suit just about any style.
-- Pink. Maybe a chiffon or very thin blouse with ruffles around the neck, suggests Leive. This also is half of another trend: the feminine-masculine look.
-- Very tailored bottoms. You need slim, man-style pants or a skirt to wear with that frilly blouse.
