It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and no, it doesn’t involve a snowman, it’s FALL! This is my far my favorite season. I am such a sucker for all things Fall, so bring on all things pumpkin! It’s also my favorite time for Fashion. I just love the rich colors and change of wardrobe from short shorts, to skinny jeans, boots and lots of layers. Below are my fall fashion staples that everyone should have in their wardrobe + beauty bag this season!
Rain boots, booties and slides // I’m loving that rain boots are a lot more fashionable than they used to be - these bootie rain boots are my ultimate go to this time of year! Also, don’t be afraid of a bold print on your shoes - leopard is everything right now and it’s become such a neutral that it goes with everything because of the black and brown! Slides are also a huge trend I’m all about because it’s just too dang easy - add some embellishments like studs and I’m sold! And yes, you can wear white after labor day - even with shoes!
sweaters & tops
Chunky knits (long cardigans and pullovers), front tie thermal // Is there anything cozier than a big chunky knit sweater!? I love it tucked into black skinny jeans with a cute belt and hat! I’m loving all the fun colors and color block sweaters, too for a more bold look! My go to fall outfit is a simple camisole with an oversized cardigan - so easy and effortless while still looking put together! And don’t even get me started on these thermal tops…I already have two and now want every color!
Leggings and oversized sweatshirts // let’s be honest, this is what I wear 90% of the time. Since I work from home (or usually at a Starbucks) I like to be comfortable and warm (I’m always cold this time of year no matter how many layers I have on). What I like about the active wear trend is that you can still make it look chic and not just sloppy (bonus, it helps motivate me to go to the gym after I get stuff done on my computer)!
Wide brim Hat and crossbody bags // You know I’m a hat lover (I can admit I do have a bit of an addiction), but I just love hats so much! This is a Fall staple for sure! The color possibilities are endless! And a good crossbody bag is a must have for Fall - easy, small and fashionable, perfect for weekends away at the pumpkin patch or football game!
Oversized denim jacket, plaid jacket, teddy bear jacket // Layering is key during the Fall season - one minute it’s hot and the next it’s freezing. I like to layer my active wear ensemble with an oversized denim jacket (look so cute with a sweatshirt underneath it). A huge trend for the season is plaid print jackets (either wool or sherpa) as well as Teddy bear jackets (any type of fur jacket that is the coziest thing you will ever own). I’m into it all! Bring on all the jackets!
Dark skinny jeans, black skinny jeans and cropped jeans // Jeans are a staple in the Fall, at least for me anyway. I’m not a huge dress or skirt person, although I do love them every once in a while My rule of thumb for my closet clients is that they should have at least 5 pairs of denim in their closet - two skinny jeans, one black skinny jean and then 2 other types (either a crop or boyfriend jean in a different wash), but if you’re like me, then you’ll have at least 10-15 pairs (I have a denim addiction cuz it’s all I wear)!
Dark nail polish and lip color // There is nothing I love more than getting a fresh manicure. For some reason I feel more put together when my nails are done. I’ve been experiencing with more fun nails and love color block nails (different color on each nail within the same color wheel). Give it a try! Also, the easiest way to freshen up a look is with a bold lip. For the season, I love Reds, Plums and Oranges. Again, have fun with it!
