Hello beautiful people!
Today it is officially the first day of fall so I figured it was perfect to do my top 5 fall fashion favourites for you!
I apologize because a lot of this is not new, I picked it up in the past couple of years but it’s easy to find similar things and obviously cater to your own style and I’m sure a lot of you already have things like these in your collection!
Number one: A leather (or pleather) jacket
Doesn’t matter what colour, mine is from zara from a couple years back ($80). I just think leather jackets look so nice in fall; it adds a bit of edge to your look but also keeps you warm as the colder weather rolls in without having to wear a big parka. Leather jackets are also perfect for layering! You can wear it over a dress with some tights or just jeans and a t-shirt if you’re having a really casual day, they’re just so easy to play with and that’s something I love about having this baby in my collection, you can create so many different looks.
Number two: boots!
Combat, thigh high, ankle, whatever your style I think these are a must for the colder weather. These are my two favourites to wear; the grey ones are from aldo from a couple of years ago($100), I love the rhinestones on them because I honestly just love a bit of glitter. These are great for days when I’m feeling a little bit more slouchy and just want something comfy and cute, I love wearing them with tights and a big cardigan or long shirt. The brown thigh highs I got last year around this time and they’re Steve Madden ($90) I like to wear these when I’m feeling a bit dressier and want to wear something a little more girly. I still like these with tights or jeans and a nice top or even a dress; again boots can be so versatile.
Number three: A nice leather purse
I got this navy Michael Kors bag last year ($375) Obviously you can use whatever you have or whatever fits into your budget, I bought this as a treat to myself after I finished work last summer. I love that it can be cross body or a shoulder bag and it’s a good size, it can still fit my make-up bag and wallet and hats and mittens when it comes to that time of year. I like to use a bigger bag in the colder months because I always feel like I need more things, I also really like that this bag has gold hardware; gold is just gorgeous for fall against all the darker colours that start to come out.
Number four: Scarves
I love scarves; I have a rather large collection because I feel like they can really pull an outfit together as well as keep you warm. The mint knit one I got as a Christmas gift from Carmen’s little brother last year so I’m not sure how much it cost but it’s from aldo and it’s probably one of the warmest scarves I own. The black one is from Zara and I like that it’s a little bit lighter so I can wear it when the weather isn’t super cold yet. As I said I feel like a scarf can either dress down an outfit or dress it up depending what kind of pieces you’re wearing.
Number five: Black tights
Okay, I think this one is just a given. Tights are one of the most versatile things in a girls wardrobe. You can wear them on their own with a cute top, or under a dress etc. These are from lulu lemon ($90) they were quite expensive but their thicker material so they don’t stretch out or lose their black pigment over time. I’ve had mine a year and they look the same as the day I bought them, and I wear them a lot! We all have days when we don’t feel like wearing jeans but we don’t want to wear sweats either, that’s where these babies come in, because you can still achieve a cute look and be comfortable!
Those are my top 5 fall fashion favourites! Let me know in the comments what some of yours are! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and keep your eyes peeled for the next few days as there may be a haul coming up very soon!
You guys are the best!
until next time,
