even if the weather might be hot and hotter in your neck of the woods no doubt you’ve noticed the days are shortening. which means only one thing: the seasons are about to change. yikes! but i dare you to say fall isn’t your favorite fashion moment. it’s the time of year when layers are a necessity, suede and leather make an appearance, and my favorite: sweaters! so what’s on my classic must-have list for fall? there are ten items that help my style game stay strong. let’s take a look:
turtleneck – perfect for a chilly fall day. they look great tucked underneath a blazer or vest. they can even fly solo. merino wool or cashmere is my top choice.
faux leather legging – want an alternative to denim? try a faux leather legging. chic and comfortable they add a little edge to your wardrobe.
cable knit sweater – perfectly preppy and a great alternative to a turtleneck. sometmes, i size up for an easy breezy look over leggings or denim.
scarf – by far a fabulous accessory that keeps us warm to boot. pick a pattern any pattern. there are so many to choose from.
puffer vest – cousin to the mighty puffer jacket a vest offers comfort and warmth on those in-between days when it’s chilly but not cold.
poncho – another way to layer up when the temps dip down. perfect for travel as they can scrunch and bunch and take a beating. you can even toss one over a skirt for a casual chic nine-to-five look.
khaki pants – if you want to switch your look from denim look no further than a khaki cargo pant. it’s neutral and goes with everything. who doesn’t like that?!
utility jacket – once again we have the military to thank for a classic wardrobe staple. it’s the perfect layering piece for a casual weekend vibe.
tote – a black or brown tote is an absolute must-have in my book. love to tote them along on shopping excursions as so many packages can fit inside.
chelsea boot – last but not least is a cute ankle boot that soared to popularity during the swinging sixties. who remembers the beatles? as if we could ever forget them. black, brown or leopard take your pick.
are you ready for fall, ladies? i’m grasping on to every last minute of summer. but, hey, autumn is an easy season to like. there are football games -go dawgs! – apple cider and pie, crisp temps, and sweaters. ok, it might not be a bad thing after all.
