Hey babes! September is finally here which means fall is right around the corner. It may not feel like fall is coming because this NYC heat is ridiculous, but I’m hopeful that the weather will soon be changing! My favorite thing about the fall season, besides the makeup of course, is the fashion. I’m all about layers, dark colors, boots, hats, etc. I am all here for it. Not to mention, I was born in the fall and I love everything pumpkin spice! I just don’t get why some people don’t like pumpkin spice, like what???? But I digress, let me share with you some fall must haves for your closet!
Plaid – I don’t know about you but for me plaid is everything in the fall. I love plaid shirts, especially plaid OVERSIZED shirts. It gives me that grungy, laid back feel that I love. You can dress it down and pair it up with a pair of converse or mocassins, but you can dress it up with a pair of heeled booties.
Knits – Every one wear knits during the fall, unless you live somewhere where its hot all day, every day. I personally stick to dark colored or neutral colored sweaters. Colors like oxblood, dark grey, dark green, taupe, burnt orange, and of course, black. Check out the Fall 2015 Pantone Fashion Color Report to see what colors are in.
Leather Jackets – A leather jacket ties my whole look together in the fall season. I’m more of a black leather jacket girl but you can explore different colors. If you’re not fond of leather, check out some bomber jackets. Bomber jackets are just as dope and come in different materials. If you’re a real boss, buy both like me ;)! Tip: Boohoo & Forever 21 have great affordable options.
Boots, Boots, and Boots – Fall isn’t fall without boots. Whether it’s heeled, no heel, booties, knee high boots, thigh high boots, lace up boots, combat boots, etc – they are a must have! Tip: JustFab, Lola Shoetique, and Charlotte Russe are my personal faves for boot shopping.
A few more basic essentials that you should have are comfy sneakers, accessories (scarves, hats, beanies), leggings, and camis/tank tops (for layering). Lauren Alexandra and Brandy Melville have fun graphic beanies, hats, and tees. Forever 21 is my go-to for basic tops and leggings.
