I’m somewhat of an anomaly when it comes to fashion. I love it (in fact I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to it), but on a day to day basis I prefer to splurge on a new throw pillow than the latest and greatest for my closet. That is, of course, until fall hits. There’s something about the change in seasons that always makes me want to start anew. This year I’m forgoing all things jewel toned in exchange for a soft blush and deep charcoal palette. Reaching for classic, yet comfortable, pieces that can be layered is the name of the game. And here are 12 fall fashion essentials that are sure to last for years to come!
1 | COZY SWEATS | Old Navy is stepping it up in a big way lately – their sweats are super soft and cozy; the perfect solution to a lazy fall afternoon.
3 | CASHMERE SCARF | My scarf collection is borderline embarrassing (read: I have two massive boxes FULL of them). And though I have a number that I adore through and through, there’s nothing that compares to cashmere.
4 | A SIMPLE TOTE | It’s the perfect accessory to take you from the market to the movies and beyond! This one comes in a variety of shades, but I’m not so secretly obsessed with this blush one.
5 | BOOTIES | Though I’ll never betray the classic riding boot, I am admittedly in love with the bootie trend. As a tried and true flats girl, I love that this soft camel pair has the tiniest heel, which makes them feel instantly fancier, yet remain comfortable enough to wear all day long.
6 | CAMP SOCKS | Coming from someone who’s perpetually cold, if it were socially acceptable, I’d wear camp socks all day every day for the rest of time. Until that moment, I’ll happily don them in the quiet of my home each and every fall (and feel extra cozy while doing so!)
7 | OVERSIZED SWEATERS | Forever and ever amen.
8 | EPIC JEANS | As a girl with some serious junk in her trunk, the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans is an ongoing task. Though these J. Crew ones aren’t IT, they’re about as close as I’ve ever gotten so far!
9 | A CLASSIC COAT, WITH A LITTLE EDGE | I’ve come to the realization that a beautiful coat is an essential. Up until recently, a fall jacket has always been a bit of an afterthought, merely utilitarian. But if it’s something that’s going to be worn daily (or close to it!), why shouldn’t it make your heart sing?
10 | NUDE NAILS | Nude nails with the slightest hint of pink. Feminine yet classy, and perfectly timeless.
11 | BERRY LIPS | Though I’m not totally on board yet with every 90’s trend that seems to be resurfacing, a deep berry lip is one that I can agree upon!
12 | SWEATSHIRTS | Coming from someone who would happily live in yoga pants if she could, I can’t help but notice that comfort is a huge factor when it comes to fashion these days. Sweatshirts are no longer reserved for the cottage. Instead, slightly more fitted (yet equally cozy) versions are popping up left right and centre and I’m totally and completely on board.
