Happy Monday! I hope the Monday blues aren’t too bad for you today. I wanted to get this post out to you all about my fall fashion must-haves, since the weather is finally cooling down! I have a lot in store for posts this season and I can’t wait for you all to see what I’ve been up too!
My first must-have for fall is long line cardigans. I bought this one at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I absolutely love it! It’s great for transitioning into fall because it’s not very heavy and perfect for layering. I also am loving this camel color for the fall time; gimme all the browns please! I can’t find it in any more colors online, so if you know something I don’t, hook a girl up! I need it in a bunch of different colors. This cardigan is from the BP brand at Nordstrom, and is under $50!
My second must-have this fall is hats! In my case, I am loving this floppy, fedora style hat from Macy’s. Hats are becoming a new favorite of mine. I got into wearing baseball caps last year, and now I wear them
all the time whenever I have a bad hair day. I bought this hat for my trip to Nashville a few weeks ago, and it was definitely out of my comfort zone. After wearing it a few times though and getting lots of compliments, its grown on me and I really do love it! I think this style is so cute to wear with sweaters and can really dress up any outfit. Just imagine wearing this, walking through a little pumpkin patch or going to brunch; yes I’m a basic white girl and it’s okay.
My next fall must-have is loafers. I am loving that menswear for women is a trend right now. I mean, how cute are these loafers!? The leopard print definitely gives them more feminine vibes, as well as the pointed toe; I just love the style of these. These loafer’s are from the brand, Halogen; I purchased mine at Nordstrom. Loafers are an easy way to dress up any look; I have even paired these with ripped denim shorts and a band tee! They are so comfortable and definitely a staple in my wardrobe this season.
My fourth fall necessity is, you guessed it, denim jackets. If you guys follow my blog you’ve seen this jacket a bazillion times, because I am always reaching for it when I need a jacket. I am obsessed with layering denim jackets with sweaters and t-shirts, which makes it perfect for fall. This particular denim jacket is from Macy’s and I bought it in a size M (I’m usually a xs or s) because I wanted it to fit oversized.
Another must-have for fall…bright-colored bags! I don’t know about you, but I wear mostly neutral colors in the fall and winter (I’m trying to branch out alittle – bear with me), so a fun colored bag works great for me. I love this one from TJ Maxx because of the autumn color, which pops when paired with any outfit! What color is this anyway…pumpkin? Burnt orange? I wanna say squash, but that seems too specific. Either way, this color screams fall!
My sixth fall must-have for my closet is tennis shoes! These are from Vans, and they caught my eye because of the mix of black and brown. It seems most people think it’s taboo to wear black and brown together, and in some cases they’re right! But if you pair them the right way, brown and black look great together. Tennis shoes are essential for many different seasons, but I love them especially during fall to transition from summer.
My next fall essential is mom jeans. I’m so happy that mom jeans became a trend after boyfriends jeans, because your girl just cannot pull off boyfriend jeans. I am too skinny and my legs are too long I just look like I bought jeans that don’t fit me. Sooo, mom jeans are the next best thing. I like pairing mom jeans with heels and booties for a more dressy look. These are a really old pair I have from Hollister, but I love how they fit me and have a straighter hemline below the knee.
My eighth fall must-have is slouchy sweaters. This white sweater from TopShop is the first of many slouchy sweaters I’ll be buying this season. I like to wear this sweater off the shoulder, and it’s SO cozy! I bought it from Nordstrom, and it comes in this beautiful white color, as well as a vibrant yellow. This sweater is super easy to wear, and is very flattering because of the bell sleeves and “v” neckline. I don’t usually go for white during the fall time, but I really like how it pops with dark denim.
Number nine on my list of must-haves for fall is all about the details, details, details. To be more specific, statement sleeves and back details are a huge trend right now. This sweater has gorgeous bell sleeves, and a lattice back! These two details are great for spicing up an everyday sweater. I have seen lots of different statement sleeves this season; flare sleeves, ruffled sleeves, blouson sleeves and layered sleeves. Bell sleeves are a great way to ease into the statement sleeve trend!
My tenth and final fall must-have is BOOTIES! Can you ever have enough booties?? I don’t think so. These booties are from Target last year and I’ve just about worn them to death. You need a pair of black booties and brown booties as staples in your wardrobe for fall and winter. They are great to dress up an outfit, but are more casual than heels (not to mention way more comfortable). I usually cuff my jeans with these booties because they rise a little bit higher than my ankles.
Everything about this post makes me so happy because fall is finally here! I just placed an order on Bath and Body Works website to feed my hoarding addiction of their fall candles. *sigh* What are your fall must-haves??
