Must-Haves for September


This fall is a fashionista's dream with new and affordably priced lines launching from Nicole Richie and Jennifer Hudson; plus the it color for the season; a trendy affordable necklace and a dress fit for a princess.

1. Nicole Richie for Macy's

Fans of Nicole Richie's House of Harlow and Winter Kate will want to mark their calendars for September 12. That's the day her affordably priced capsule collection Nicole Richie for Macy's Impulse hits Macy's stores and online. The 25-piece line features asymmetrical skirts, maxi dresses, tunic-style blouses and more all in Richie's signature 70s'-inspired Boho glam. The pieces range in price from $49 to $149.

More than ever, American women are wearing many different hats," Richie said in a press release. "We're not just one dimensional, and I wanted this collection to be a nod to how many roles women are taking on at this point."

2. Jennifer Hudson for QVC

She can sing. She can act. She's a mom. Is there anything Jennifer Hudson can't do? Apparently not as she gears up to launch her first ever fashion line on QVC on September 6, coinciding with Fashion's Night Out. The collection includes dresses, tunics, leggings, coats, tops, and more with prices ranging from $50 to $170.

"I'm nervous and excited at the same time!" Hudson said in a press release of her first foray into the design world. "I hope the public embraces my line...it's my baby."

3. Kirna Zabête at The Shops at Target

The second installation of The Shops at Target makes its debut at stores on September 9. Fashionistas will want to check out the Kirna Zabête line. The capsule collection from the co-owners for the trendy NYC boutique includes dresses, jackets, skirts and blouses in graphic prints and textures, as well as lace tights, scarves, hats, handbags and jewelry (Like this must-have diamond dust necklace that retail for $29.99 each.) The prices range from $9.99 to $199.99. (Don't be alarmed, that $199.99 price is for a leather jacket.)

4. Anything Oxblood

Oxblood, a deep burgundy, is the color of the season. Look for it on shoes, handbags, and dresses, like this Sessun Wool Dress from Asos. The shirt dress features bubble shoulders and a cinched waist that is made for pairing with a belt. Try layering the dress with a sweater or sweater vest for a chic, comfortable style in colder months.

The Sessun Wool Dress from Asos is 80 percent wool and 20 percent nylon and is available in sizes extra-small through large.

5. Cropped Leather Jacket

This Theory Madigan Leather Jacket is the perfect blend of masculine and feminine. The leather with the zipper accents is tough, then softened by the quilting and pretty pink-ish nude color. You'll be able to wear it with everything from your jeans to a simple shift dress.

The Theory Madigan leather jacket is available in sizes petite through large. It is fully lined.

6. Kate Middleton Inspired Dress

Can't you just see the Duchess looking fetching in this Nanette Lepore Avon Vale Ponte dress? Expect to find many Kate Middleton-inspired dresses in stores this fall and with good reason. The simple, three-quarter-sleeved body-skimming (but never hugging) styles are sophisticated and ladylike, without ever being boring. The evergreen color is what makes this otherwise basic dress a standout.

The Nanette Lepore Avon Vale Ponte dress is available in sizes 0 through 12 and also comes in ivory.
