Now that the Fall season is upon us, we are thrilled to add more items to our wardrobe essentials. It’s that part of the year when you are looking to transition your wardrobe by purchasing clothes and accessories that will keep you warm and toasty throughout the fall season.
Labels and designers know what women want to stock up their wardrobes to look like a true fashionista without trembling in the cold. While ladies living in Miami or Southern California would not understand our obsession with Fall essentials, we need enough supplies to last through the entire season.
Before you rush out or start shopping online, remember to scrutinize your current wardrobe to figure out the kind of accessories you need to look trendy and feel comfortable.
Coats and Jackets
A Statement Coat
Every woman we know has a favorite coat that keeps hanging in her closet, all year round. This fall, replace your black parkas with a nice and fluffy coat to leave a strong impression. Invest in a comfy autumnal plaid or a belted trench coat to feel warm and look sassy at the same time.
Blazers never go out of a fashion. That’s because whenever you need a dependable layering accessory to stay moderately warm, your good old blazer comes to the rescue. Since fall nights are not as cold as those of winter, you don’t have to buy a heavy-duty jacket, at the beginning of the season.
You can purchase a few trendy open-front blazers when you don’t feel like wearing a jacket to work or an event. Blazers are also more affordable than most parkas. If you ask us, a blazer is a must-have accessory for those days of the season when you have to transition from work to date night.
Fleece jackets make up a nice addition to your fall outerwear collection. Comfy and cozy, you can easily find a wide range of items such as a hooded or a lightweight fleece jacket. Since these accessories are available in a variety of sizes, you can easily find the perfect fit for small or plus sizes.
A fleece jacket is a great accessory to feel warm when you are running, gardening, hiking, or tailgating. Layering up with a soft microfleece jacket will keep you safe and warm at home and outdoors.
It seems as if leather jackets have been around for centuries. Do you know a woman alive who doesn’t have a favorite leather jacket? Even our mothers and grandmothers like to wear their old leather jacket sometimes. Thanks to a plethora of different designs, cuts, and colors, the famous leather jacket has come a long way. You can also invest in a faux leather jacket if you don’t want to put a dent to your bank account.
Most of us love wearing an over-sized denim jacket over a flannel or a dress to layer-up for fall days. If you are looking for a trendy accessory to add more versatility to your outfit, a denim jacket always does the magic. In some cases, they are more functional than leather jackets because you easily fit some layers such as a sweater underneath, without looking bulky.
Be at work or outdoors, a fitted suit jacket will make you look like a true diva. This jacket is a great option for women out there who don’t want to wear full suits to work. Invest in a jacket that fits you well and highlights your best assets. You can wear it with a top, jeans, or heels to add an extra oomph to your look.
Trench coats are so cute you never want to stop wearing them. Make sure your list of essential for this fall season comprises of a belted waterproof trench coat to let you roam around with style.
Pants & Leggins
Now, that one thing will never go out of your wardrobe, ever! Since, your trusty jeans are comfy enough to last throughout the year, make sure you buy a good quality pair. This item is an indispensable clothing accessory for those days of the season when you can’t think of any outfit to wear. If you think your denim jeans are too boring for fall, try out skinny colored jeans, which add a great spark to your look. Colored jeans also look great with neutral booties.
You can pair your jeans with a white or black t-shit and finish off your look with a sexy leather jacket or high boots. This timeless look is great for September and October evenings. Remember to go for a slim-cut pair to elongate your legs and choose a dark wash to add more richness to your outfit.
Our list of fall essentials will be incomplete without this must-have accessory for your fall wardrobe. Hunting for the perfect pair of leggings was once a challenge. Now, you can easily browse through hundreds of different pairs made out of various materials online to choose the best ones for your fall dresses.
If you don’t want to wear pants every day, sleek and comfortable leggings go great with a dressy blouse or even a casual t-shirt. You will never regret investing in this cool accessory to stay warm throughout the chilly fall evenings.
Wearing uncomfortable clothes will only add more to your traveling anxiety, especially when you need to feel warm. Invest in a good-looking pair of travel pants to travel and land at your destination in style. There are plenty of fitted, stretchable, or legging pants, which are great accessories for women who hate traveling in jeans.
Shirts, Tops and Sweaters
Most women are not exactly thrilled at the idea of wearing a bodysuit. However, the variety you find to try out different styles and of course how flattering they are on your curves makes you go for a pair every time! Buy items made out of comfortable fabrics, so you don’t feel too hot or too cold.
A slightly over-sized cashmere cardigan is all you need to step out without your cozy blanket. We still haven’t gotten over Katie Holmes’ sexy cardigan that matched her bra. Who needs to wear a bulky sweatshirt when you can always get a trendy cardigan? This fall season, cardigans are all the rage. The choices are endless so you can choose your favorite flowy, tie, or knit cardigans to add more sexiness to your fall collection.
It’s easy to layer-up or accessorize when you have a few plain tee shirts in your collection. You can buy a pack of black or white t-shirts to layer it with other accessories. Some ladies like wearing these tees under a coat or a leather jacket to look trendy without having to buy loads of expensive tops or blouses.
Knit sweater cape
Capes have been around for a long time. However, they seem to be more popular now than ever! This fall season, don’t forget to buy a knit-sweater cape, which serves as great transitional outerwear. Capes are the best accessories for layering up when it’s not too cold, but you still need to cover up to stay warm.
A Button-Down Shirt
We all have a button-down top, which we always end up wearing when we don’t know what to wear. It’s one of those basic accessories, which every woman must have in her wardrobe. You can also use it for layering to add extra warmth.
Stock-up on a variety of undershirts to add more layering items. A long-sleeved undershirt will protect your knits so you won’t have to dry clean or wash them as often. You can buy these shirts in black and blush color as well as stripes.
It’s nice to have a few colorful blouses for having work-appropriate and comfortable every day and workwear. If you are looking for a different look, you can always tuck your blouse into your trousers or jeans. Ladies who want to add some fun to their outfit can go for polka dots, which are an exciting way to add patterns.
Dresses & Accessories
A Little Black Dress
Don’t shy away from wearing your favorite black dress this Fall. When you have so many accessories to add more glam (and warmth) to your attire, there’s no reason why you should not wear that sensual little black dress. To feel warm and cozy during the fall season, you can pair with a jacket or blazer and wear tights or leggings to keep those long legs warm.
Don’t underestimate the purpose of this beautiful fall accessory. You can buy a nice bold print or textured fabric scarf, which adds more color to your outfits and keeps your neck area warm on a windy day. You can also go for a chunky knit scarf, which is a fabulous layering accessory, and add more accessories to make it look classy or funky.
What’s an outfit without a handbag? Bags are great accessories for finishing off your look. For that reason, your fall look is incomplete without a bag or clutch that goes with your attire. You don’t have to buy expensive designer bags to look cool this fall. Just get hold of a few minimalist bags, and you are good to go. If you have to buy a bigger one to keep all your belongings safe, invest in prints and patchwork fabrics to look like a true celebrity. Make sure your bag is easy to carry and features a long strap in addition to handles.
A Versatile Fall Dress
While summer dresses are more popular, fall dresses are quickly becoming a fashion sensation. Replace your spaghetti-strapped dresses with long-sleeve ensembles. You can also dare to go for short dresses as you can pair it with a pair of tights, stockings, or leggings to have a fabulous fall outfit.
An airy dress
To spice things up, buy a flowy maxi dress, which looks great with a leather jacket as well as booties. You can choose simple patterns and neutral colors to keep it nice and simple.
Beanies are universally flattering and seem to be everyone’s favorite fall accessory. The best part is they fit everyone and add some color to your appearance. Looking at the popularity of a beanie cap, it’s safe to conclude that your list of fall essentials is incomplete without a colorful and cool beanie. You can find hundreds of different designs, materials, and colors. Beanies are great items to look cool while keeping your heads and ears warm.
It’s time to put those sandals and flip-flops away. Shoes can be an expensive part of your wardrobe so it’s a great idea to buy the best-quality shoes that will last a long time. If you prefer wearing high boots, they are going to go great with multiple outfits.
However, ankle boots are also a great option for party dresses or your denim jeans. You can experiment a few different looks to see what looks great with what.
A Pair of loafers
When boots and high boots are a big no, loafers give your outfit a sophisticated touch. You can wear loafers alone or with a fresh pair of socks to stomp into the new season in style. Go for thicker sports socks to add a contemporary touch to this conventional look. Go for chunky lug soles that would look great with any outfit.
