In yesterday’s post I told you my fall shoe essentials and today I’m going to share you with my clothing essentials for fall! In the fall I am all about layering because chances are it will either be warmer inside than outside or vice versa, so I try to always be prepared either way!
Utility Jackets: I have always been on the lookout for a good fall jacket, something not too light but not too heavy either. Let me tell you…they are hard to come by. It’s either one extreme or the other. Luckily, the J.Crew angels were looking out for me when they came out with the downtown field jacket! It is the perfect fall jacket. I love the masculine, yet feminine feel of it! I have seen these type of jackets all over this season and I definitely don’t hate it!
Striped shirt: Stripes are classic no matter how they are done. They are versatile and simple, my two favorite things. Stripes are typically my go-to if I can’t find anything else to put with an outfit….and it always seems to work (think: stripes + colored denim). I suggest buying a few classic striped shirts such as navy, tan, and black!
Quilted vest: While living in the mountains for college these were a dime a dozen, and maybe that’s why I’m partial to them! I have worn my quilted vest with everything from a long sleeve t-shirt, leggings and uggs to an oxford, jeans, and flats. No matter what the outfit it always makes it look a little more put together and is a great layering piece.
Camel colored sweater: I’m not quite sure why I have this obsession with the camel color, but I do! I recently bought one and I can’t stop going over the many outfit possibilities it has (I’m thinking layered over my denim shirt, minnie pants and a statement necklace). It is such a classic color that you can’t go wrong with adding this to your wardrobe.
Denim/Chambray shirt: I’ll admit it…this was a trend I was dead set on never trying. ever. Until I tried it! As much as I loved my denim this summer I can’t wait for round two this fall. I am in the market for a thicker denim shirt…any suggestions?
Black Denim: I wear a lot of a) neutral colored tops b) bright colored tops in the fall and having black denim would really offset what’s on top! I own a pair of bootcut black denim but am really searching for a good pair of skinnies to wear with my flats this fall! I know I would definitely get a lot of use out of them!
