As we head into the fall the season the days will start to get shorter, the nights will get chillier, and the fashion will only get better. In my opinion, there is no better season to dress for than fall. Fall dressing is all about beautiful coats and jackets, shoes and accessories. Materials get more lush, and accessories get more luxurious. It's time to put away those floppy beach hats for the season and replace them with the new It Item: A rancher hat.
