According to Google, the first day of fall is Wednesday. Yeah, seriously. I know it’s still summer weather in Texas. But as we all know, that’ll change soon enough and probably without warning. So here’s a heads up. Will you be pulling out your old boots or are you looking to restock your wardrobe? Either way, you might find yourself wondering what the new trends are this fall. That’s why I love having a few staple pieces that will never go out of style.
1. Booties: I got my first pair just a few years ago and I can’t even remember what I wore before them. Booties are more sensible than stilettos, and hello?! They’re cute as heck. I can wear these babies anywhere. Rock them on a Girls Night Out with a pair of skinnys or wear them with a skirt or dress to work. You can’t go wrong.
2. Black jacket/blazer: The original. Always has been, always will be. Dress up your look with a black jacket or blazer. Just like the booties, this is a wardrobe item that can be casual or classy, depending what you pair it with. I got my first one last year and I can’t wait to wear it again. (Feel free to cool down at any moment, Texas.)
3. Signature scarf: I wasn’t always big on scarves. They seemed pointless, really. But the truth is, they are the perfect tool for lazy ladies. If you’ve got plans or need to get out for a bit but don’t really feel like throwing an outfit together, throw a scarf over that T shirt and you’re good to go. Still cozy and it looks like you tried. 😉
4. Oversized cardigan: I kind of had a preconceived notion about oversized cardigans. I thought you could only wear these with jeans and riding boots. Wrong. You can wear these with tights, leggings. I’ve even seen them with shorts. Wear them with flats or booties. You can even switch the cardigan out for an oversized sweater. Pair this with a pencil skirt or some pencil pants and you can wear it to work. The possibilities are endless, really.
So whether you’re out on the town, running weekend errands, or spending a day in the office, these pieces are all must haves. Remember fall is about layering and earthy neutral colors. Think pumpkins and hot cocoa. I, myself, am not a trend setter. I like to stick with what’s comfortable and occasionally venture out. Heck, it took me months to try skinny jeans. That’s why these signature items are so essential to any wardrobe. What are some of your go-to or must-have items this fall?
