Fall Style Must Haves

It’s time to select a few of my favorite must-have styles for fall.  These are pieces that I consider essential wardrobe staples for the fall fashion forecast.

1. Booties: The perfect pair of short booties is a definite must! Booties are so versatile and can be worn with many different styles. I like to wear them with a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans rolled up at the ankles. They also look great with a dress or skirt and tights. These Rag & Bone nubuck booties are the perfect neutral color for fall. 

2. Vest: Fall is all about wearing layers when the weather starts to cool off. A vest is the perfect wardrobe staple to layer with your longer sleeve sweaters, knits, and flannels. Look for different styles – they come in all fabrics and textures including puffer vests, faux fur, and lighter weight knits. This Powder River Outfitters Eyelash vest is a perfect addition to dress up casual outfit and I personally love the longer length! P.S. shop the men’s section for puffer vests! You will find the prices are much less expensive, the lengths are longer, and the color selection is much broader in most cases. I usually buy a small in men’s which may not work if you are petite. 

3. Plaid Scarf: Scarves are great accessories for fall. They come is various patterns, textures, and materials. Plaid is one of my favorite fall patterns and it comes in various colors. This tartan plaid scarf from Lord & Taylor is a perfect accessory to add to your fall outfits! 

4. Destructed Jeans: Every girl needs a pair of destructed ripped jeans. There are an essential staple to your fall/winter wardrobe. During the colder months, I like to trade in my light wash denim for a medium to dark denim wash. These will pair perfectly with your layered fall sweaters, graphic tees, and blazers this coming season. 

5. Nail Polish: This Essie nail color called “Smokin Hot” is a perfect nail color for fall. I gravitate towards darker and richer colors in the cooler months of autumn and winter as opposed to the bright and lighter nail colors of spring/summer. 

 6. Hats: Accessorize your fall outfits with a hat! I love this floppy wool felt hat from Topshop. The rich burgundy color is a perfect accessory to any fall outfit! 

7. Boots: In addition to a pair of short booties, an investment in a good pair of tall riding boots for fall is a definite must-have. I picked up these Tory Burch Eloise riding boots at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this past July and I couldn’t be more pleased. They look fabulous with your favorite pair of jeans or leggings with an oversized sweater! 

8. Faux Fur Infinity Scarf: Faux fur is a great texture to wear during the fall season. In addition to vests, I love the look of faux fur scarves. This infinity scarf by Tinley Road is a perfect faux fur accessory to add to your closet. You will love the look and the soft feel and want to wear it all the time! 

9. Handbags: the handbags of fall really aren’t that much different than summer except in color. I recently picked up this Tory Burch Robinson open dome satchel in a beautiful cranberry color. The handbags of fall have warmer and richer hues such as burgundy, caramel, and chocolate brown. 

These are my fall must-have selections. What are some of your necessary fall wardrobe stapes? I would love to hear from you! Enjoy Shopping!
