I think that my favorite part of fall clothing is that everything is so cozy and comfortable. Keep that in mind when shopping for tops. Look for light,knit sweaters like the striped one or the one with the bear on it to stay cute and warm during the brisk fall mornings! Also I cannot emphasize how important cardigans are. Personally they are always one of my fall staples. Look for long, boyfriend style cardigans in Autumn shades like burgundy, cinnamon, and marigold. Like the three pictured above. Long sleeved blouses, button up blouses and cute tees with animal graphics are also great. Lastly don't put all your sleeveless summer tops away just yet. Neutral colored and darker colored sleeveless tops can look amazing with a cute cardigan over them or a blazer or even a moto jacket like this one!
As far as bottoms go I feel like there are three main things you should remember: jeans, skirts, and pants. You can't go wrong with a cute midi skirt with tights. This look is really versatile and you can definitely either dress it up or dress it down depending on where you are going. Shorter skirts work too, I'm just partial to midi skirts! Something that I can't wait to buy is a pair of corduroy pants like the one's on the bottom left corner. I think they look absolutely gorgeous, especially in burgundy. Also look for pants in colors like pumpkin and olive like the two in the left top corner. This might be a little out of my comfort zone, but I also feel like plaid pants are cute for fall, they have more of a punk look to them at first sight, but ankle boots, a cardi, and an adorable peter pan collar top can easily take them from punk to autumn preppy.Last but not least make sure you have a few good pairs of jeans to complete your cozy ensembles!
When shopping for dresses for Fall I tend to gravitate more toward darker colors. A lot of black, navy, plum, and burgundy. Marigold and pumpkin are also gorgeous! Don't get me wrong though I still love wearing lighter color dresses, I think cream colored dresses look amazing in Autumn! Also look for dresses with cute patterns and cute little details like hearts, stripes, flowers, polka dots etc. Lastly look for dresses made with a thicker fabric for those chillier Autumn days ( they can also transition into winter). I fell in love with the burgundy dress in the bottom left corner! It's made out of velvet! I've never purchased a velvet dress before so that's something I'd love to own!
Boots, Boot, Boots! I feel like the most important pair of shoes you can buy for Fall is a good pair of boots! Look for ankle boots, tall boots, boots with buckles, boots with laces etc. Personally I think owning at least one pair of ankle boots and one pair of taller boots is all you need. They look especially great with a cute dress & a pair of tights! Moccasins are the next most important shoe. In my opinion Minnetonka has some of the best quality Moccasins! Also every year I love purchasing the slipper moccasins they sell at Target. They're really affordable and super comfortable! Look for some cute flats and oxfords and you're all set!
I love satchels all year round,but I feel like Fall is the season that they most belong to. I look for satchels in neutral colors like black, navy and brown. However I also look for satchels in more traditional fall colors too! Also I like looking for bags with patterns like the satchel on the top left corner. I love the plaid detailing on it, to me it just says Fall. I also love the bag in the lower right corner, I just love the aztec pattern on it! Lastly the whimsy in me couldn't help it, I love that little fox shaped bag! Any accessories or piece of clothing featuring adorable little creatures like foxes and kittens are my weaknesses.
