Fall’s here and the leaves are changing, but that doesn’t mean that you have to shed your entire wardrobe to stay in style. This season, it’s all about reinventing your closet: Stock up on bright patterns (hello plaid!) and bold colors; glamorize classic pieces with glittering accessories; and transform summer outfits into amazing autumn apparel. Still feeling the frost? Don’t fear: Owners of six of our favorite boutiques offer tips on staying warm — and looking hot — this season.
