Pumpkin spice, cooler weather, and fall fashion – these are a few of my favorite things! (But for real, pumpkin spice everything.)
Fall is our favorite season to dress for since it’s is all about layers. With weather swinging from hot to cold in a matter of hours, depending on where you live, layering is essential. It’s probably too warm for a heavy coat, but too cold for your summer dresses and shorts – which means you’ll need a few fall fashion basics to reach for in the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice.
Here are five pieces you need in your fall closet.
1. A great pair of jeans:
Never underestimate the power of good denim. Right now we’re loving dressed-up denim. Nice enough to wear to work, cute on the streets, and comfortable enough to wear to a Saturday football game. These are on our wishlist.
We love how Selena Gomez styled them here with a cream turtleneck and beige cardigan. And Nina Garcia is rocking hers with a white button-up and simple gold jewelry.
2. A pumpkin spice colored dress:
We don’t just want to admire fall, we want to embody it. And there’s no better way to do it than in the season’s signature color: pumpkin spice orange. We love this dress because its long sleeves can be rolled or left long, with a high-low hemline keeping it fresh, bringing it in as one of our favorite summer trends that easily transitions to fall.
We also love how Lily Aldridge styles a similar dress. How fabulous does pumpkin spice dress look with a wool coat thrown over it?
3. A pretty sweater:
The real reason I love fall is that I finally get to break out my, rather large, collection of sweaters. They are a versatile option that allows for an unlimited number of styling choices:
Sweaters look cute with leggings or denim and can be dressed up with a cute pair of shoes and the right accessories. Tucking a colorfully printed sweater into a neutral skirt is one of my favorite ways to rock the sweater.
I’m also in love with this color block mohair, that looks so refined combined with brown. Purple might not be considered a traditional fall color, but paired with this brown trench coat and long skirt, it absolutely evokes autumn.
4. A great fall handbag:
You’ll need a cute new handbag to haul around all your items while your hands are full with pumpkin spice lattes. This one is stylish, holds a lot, and the price is fantastic. Plus, metallic is totally in this season.
5. A stylish scarf:
Since weather can go from sunny to frigid in the fall depending on where you live, it’s nice to keep a scarf on-hand. One of our favorites are the blanket-like scarves that combine warmth with style and look so good with whatever you’re rocking. The best part? Our favorite is from Amazon and costs less than $15.00
Welcome, fall! We couldn’t be happier that you are here.
