Fall Fashion Rule: How To Wear A Choker

We've been fans of chunky chokers long before the trend really kicked in, but this fall we're all about the newest way to wear our favorite heavy necklaces: Layered over a button-up. Marissa, a super-cute Abbott Kinney window-shopper, completely nailed the perfect fall uniform, and we can't wait to copy her. Just pair your heavy necklace with a body-con black mini and boots—a cross-body bag and red nails round out the entire outfit—and you'll be strolling in style all autumn long.

Check out these five must-haves to get Lily's early fall look:

1. Essential #1: Short-Sleeve Collar Shirt—This perfect short-sleeved shirt is the ideal foundation to all of fall's perfect outfits, and this crisp white number is the greatest one on the market.

Georgette Arrian Silk Shirt, $190, available at Theory,
