4 Essentials for Your Fall Wardrobe
It is that perfect time of year. The leaves are changing colors and the air is getting cooler. Fall decor is out and you are surrounded by orange, maroon, mustard, and plum colors. Fall is an interesting season because it can be very hot during the day and cold at night. This is a exciting season to dress for because you can add so many different pieces together. Layering is a great choice because you can add accessories to add color and texture to your look. Let’s take a look at the essentials you need for fall.
This is an obvious choice. When it gets cooler you will want shoes that can also keep you warm. These are a great choice because you can wear warm socks for extra warmth.
Choosing the material is the fun part. If you know you are going to be in wet weather, leather is your friend. Leather is great for times where you may get a bit muddy because you can wipe them off. (ADD) In addition to type of material, you should also consider quality. A pair of handmade leather boots that lasts for years is well worth the investment.
If you are wanting to kick your style up a bit, try a suede pair of boots. You can get wild with the colors too. Red, black, brown, and even mustard.
There are many styles of boots to choose from. Booties stop at your ankle. These are the trendiest right now. The other two most common types are calf and thigh high boots.
Yes, you need to have a pair or two or three pairs of skinny jeans. These are a staple for fall clothing. These allow you to dress up or down your style. If you want to dress it up a bit, pair it with heels. If you are heading to a football game pair it with calf high boots.
You should have a dark wash and a lighter wash pair of jeans. The third option should be a fall colored pair of denim, like rusty red or hunter green.
Leather jacket & Hoodie
You will want some type of jacket during the fall, especially as it gets later in the day. Leather jackets are great options if you want to dress up your look. These can be paired with boots and skinny jeans. You do not have to match leather boots to the leather jacket, you can opt for suede boots if you want to add some texture to our outfit.
Yes, you need a hoodie. However, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion to wear a hoodie. When it comes to ultra high fashion retailers, they will have hoodies, but designer hoodies. Balenciaga’s fall collection has high end hoodies that will keep you warm and stylish.
If you don’t have the budget for high end fashion designers, there are many ways to get cute clothes on a budget. Be on the lookout for sales. They tend to start towards the end of summer, but well before it starts to get cool. If you can plan ahead for next fall, the best time to buy clothes for the fall is at the end of fall. You will be able to find markdowns from 50-90% off. These items are all staples for fall and will still be in style next fall.
Now that you know the must haves for fall, it is time to start mixing and matching them together and even add accessories. For one outfit you can pair your boots with a beanie and gloves, which is great if it’s cold. If its a bit warmer, but still on the cool side you can wear a bulky scarf with your skinny jeans. Remember to layer your clothing so that you are comfortable during the fluctuating temperatures.
