by Jill Manoff

Always in awe of the personal style of searsStyle’s content manager, Melissa, we decided to put her in the hot seat—and found out what pieces she’s been buying and how she’ll be wearing them all fall. Check it out.

Faux Leather Leggings
She’s never met a faux leather style she doesn’t like, and faux leather leggings are no exception. She’s already been working a bordeaux pair, and has just scored a black—to wear with blazers and sweatshirts.

An Updated Flannel
When jeans-and-a-tee just won’t do, she trades her go-to V-neck for a better-than-basic top. This season? She’s big on styles with statement prints, like checks and plaids.

Oversized Sunnies
Sure, they’re trendy, but she’ll wear them forever. Such was our staffer’s thought process when she recently deemed bold, tortoise sunnies “worth it.” (We couldn’t agree more!)

An Embellished Bag
Featuring a classic design and of-the-moment studs, this oversized bag is the best of both worlds. Case in point? She carries it to work and on the weekends, repeatedly.

Wedge Booties
With a trip in the books, she couldn’t resist picking up a pair of suitcase-worthy booties. Her criteria? A comfortable feel, just enough lift and a color that will work with all on her pack list.

Stackable Bracelets
A fan of all things edgy, she made spiked and studded jewelry mandatory this season. According to her? “It’s perfect for ‘making’ simple looks, like sweaters and leggings or denim and tees.”
