Pumpkin spice lattes may have been your staple drink for the last few weeks, but the official First Day of Fall was Sunday the 23rd!
As the weather gets cooler and leaves finally start to turn, we want a wardrobe that reflects all of our favorite things about the season- boots, sweaters, scarves… I could go on & on! Trends that are going to be big this Fall are all things plaid, tweed, and athleisure.
In case you need a bit of Fall Fashion inspiration, I’ve put together a list of some seasonal must-haves:
Cargo Jacket: A fashionable staple for a few seasons now, a jacket with military-style details is just what you need to turn a basic outfit into effortless chic. Whether you get one in olive, khaki, or a more trendy shade like burgundy, it’s an easy piece to layer over almost anything.
Tweed: A classic fabric that can be the foundation of so many fashion forward looks, and is so easily styled. Pair a tweed ballet flat with jeans and a white button-up for French-girl style, or a plaid blazer and loafers for a masculine yet still feminine vibe.
These tweed pants with a paper-bag waistline paired with an off the shoulder top & loafers are a perfect trendy look for the office!
Plaid: Possibly the most classic autumn print out there, and very on-trend for 2018, your fall wardrobe won’t be complete without it. With so many color combinations and fabric choices, styling is a breeze.
Layer a plaid flannel with a graphic tee and pair with some relaxed denim, and you have the perfect tailgating look!
Athleisure: Sweats are not just for the gym anymore! Athleisure is having a huge moment, and for the time being, it’s here to stay. If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to jump on the bandwagon. A stylish hoodie like this one from Athleta is perfect for layering over a tee and pairing with jeans & sneakers.
Sweaters: Get cozy by throwing on a soft sweater in a perfect neutral or trendy fall shade. I’m currently obsessed with this transitional knit sweater from H&M. It's perfect for those sunny Midwest fall days that start out chilly but quickly warm up! And at that price, you can get alllll the gorgeous fall colors!
Leggings: Love them or hate them, no fall wardrobe is complete without leggings. Whether you wear them at home for lounge time, for extra warmth under a skirt, or to pair with that perfect chunky sweater for shopping and PSL sipping, a good pair of leggings is a no-brainer for fall.
Knit Dress: This dress is one of the most versatile fall style essentials to have in your closet for its dress up or dress down capabilities. Get one in a neutral color such as black or navy and you have limitless styling options.
I paired this black knit dress from Old Navy (similar style here) with an olive cardigan and black ankle booties for the perfect fall brunch look.
Ankle Booties: In my opinion, nothing says fall like a pair of ankle booties. Perfect to wear with jeans, leggings, or dresses, you literally can’t go wrong. Getting a pair in a fun color is a great way to add some spice to your look.
My new favorites are the Wanderer Bootie from Fergalicious. SO comfortable, and go with everything!
Now that you have an overview of the perfect 2018 fall basics, grab your girlfriends and your latte & hit the shops!
