Even though I have plenty of fall clothing items, I always like to add a few new pieces each season. Over the years I’ve started to purchase more classic pieces for my wardrobe that I can wear for years to come. However I do still like to buy the occasional “trend piece.” So here are 5 items that are going to be essentials in my fall wardrobe this year, (and I think you should have too)!
I am a huge lover of almost any type of sweater, but I always find having a plain, neutral sweater to be a wardrobe must. They are perfect for wearing with jeans and layering on cold days, or over a dress. This one was so kindly sent to me by Romwe, and I was genuinely shocked at how thick it was! It will be perfect for keeping me warm on the more colder days, and I love the oatmeal/beige color.
I thought I would also share a few other neutral sweaters from Romwe that I have been eyeing:
Now before I took these photos I was on the hunt for a baker boy hat. I’ve seen countless photos on Instagram of them and love the style and look they give to an outfit. I managed to find one from Urban Outfitters that I love! You can find the one I got here, although it will be in plenty more fall blog posts to come. Baker boy hats seem to fit any face and head shape and look good on everyone!
I also thought I would mention my other favorite fall accessory: glasses! I don’t actually need glasses to see, but EyeBuyDirect can make all of their glasses with clear lenses. You can also get them with lenses designed for staring at digital screens for long periods of times, or with your prescription. I love adding them to outfits to add an extra detail, or wearing them on days where I’m not wearing makeup. You can find the pair that I’m wearing here!
Skirts have never been a huge love of mine until this season. I always found that they were hard to style during fall and winter months, and I often couldn’t find a style I liked. When I founded this wrap-style one from the WhoWhatWear collection at Target I knew it would be a staple. It’s flattering and goes perfectly with a sweater tucked in. And you can’t go wrong with black!
Now it was too warm to be able to wear on this day, but I find pleather or leather jackets are a great wardrobe essential for fall. Because almost every clothing store has one of these jackets, there are so many styles and price ranges to choose from. I have tried on countless ones over the years, but the one I loved and purchased is this one from Uniqlo. I love how it’s not cropped and how it has room to layer sweaters underneath.
When fall comes around I still wear my sneakers, but I tend to wear oxfords more. They are the perfect shoe for dressing up a simple outfit. I love wearing them with everything from jeans and a sweater to dresses. This pair is from DSW and is by Franco Sarto. My go to in past years has been a black pair, but I love how this gray pair lightens up an outfit.
And those are my 5 fashion essentials and favorites for my favorite season! Let me know what one fashion item you think is a must in your wardrobe for fall!
