One of the best things about Fall is the fashion! Apart from the beautiful change in color, the trees go through- every girlie girl can agree with me that the moment September arrives, breaking out those suede boots and corduroy mini-skirts brings upon excitement and enthusiasm in getting dressed in the cooler mornings.
I’ve put together some tips on the items you should have in your closet that can work with just about everything for the colder months.
1Black Suede Sock Booties with a square or slightly round toe. This a staple for the cooler months. This pair of shoe is essential in both Fall and Winter (also can work in Spring as well). It goes well with skinny jeans, bootcut jeans, mini wool skirts, mini corduroy skirts, and most sweater dresses! That’s a lot! It’s timeless, it’s edgy and it probably will never go out of fashion.
2Fitted black over the knee (OTK) boots. These boots are HOT and go with both sweater dresses, skirts, and jeans – basically everything. Depending on your budget, I personally have a pair by Stuart Weitzman. I saved for months but they were worth every penny (as they fit my chicken legs like a glove). From my own experience, it was hard for me to find a pair of OTK boots that would fit my legs without them slipping down my leg, however with this particular make of boots- no matter how much you wear them, they stay brand new and fitted – hence the expensive price. However now that OTK has become a staple must-have, there are so many good brands out there able to produce the same quality for a lesser price!
Good recommendation is to measure your calf and leg circumference and make sure the OTK boot you buy is about an inch less than what your leg circumference comes out to so the fit is snug because most of these boots are made with a stretch suede and string to draw in the fit.
3Cowl Neck Sweater Dress. This is a timeless sweater dress style that looks great on any body type and even shoe from a white sneaker to a knee high boot or ankle bootie or even an OTK boot! It just works! Can be worn with a belt or without one.
4White tank. This is a timeless piece you can pair with any color denim under a cardi or black lightweight jacket.
5A thick high-waist leather belt in maroon or dark brown. This belt can transform any high waist pant overnight into a whole new outfit. I personally like a maroon belt with a nice classic round buckle with my LEVIS denim and a white tank tucked in with a cardigan or black double breasted blazer. The look is a simple, chic, and can work for both day and night.
6Simple black leather Chelsea boot. Every girl needs a simple black bootie that’s casual and works with denim or even a casual dress.
7Long Wool Coat. A good wool coat can dress up any outfit, even sweatpants and a t-shirt!
These are my go-to items all Fall and Winter season. Some of these also work well into Spring! Hope you enjoyed my curated list of fashion staples, what are some of yours? Feel free to share in the comments below 🙂
