Don't want to be dull but for me looks like the word TREND is now a bit dirty word in fashion circles, as I am trying to be more mindful with consumption and buy items with longevity in mind. So, when putting together a list like this, I prefer to use words like “essentials” and “must-haves” because there is some fashion classics which you can still see popular every Fall season- something like tartan pattern or earthy tones florals.
I was really conscious to avoid any trends that I believe will have a short shelf life and instead focused on styling tweaks that you can achieve with classic autumn pieces or updates that will last far beyond one or two seasons. Moreover, each woman is different and has different wardrobe needs, so you can keep it as advisor but still determining what do YOU actually NEED to add to your closet.
Those are just a few examples of what all the fashionistas will be wearing once the weather cools down again. You might get in on the action too and scroll through the new fall 2020 trends, but I believe we should considerate with the things we choose to buy and focus on timeless items, for example to invest in classic outerwear and boots cause this is always like the bread and butter of autumn dressing. Afterwards goes relaxed silhouettes, cocooning knitwears, silk skirts and dresses and chunky boots for stepping outside. And, as always, I believe that comfort is key.
Okay, let’s get started! Here is my list of wardrobe essentials I think most women should have in their closets for EVERY fall season.
1. Ancle boots . After all, our footwear really sets the tone for an outfit, and it’s a great way to transition our looks with the change of seasons.
Ankle boots (or booties) are always on trend for every fall season. Neutrals are always a safe bet and the black ones is a must for me, but I see animal prints are popular right now.
2. A blazer. Tailored suit pieces in rich, gorgeous fall tones showed up on nearly every fall runway. To make suiting ready for daily wear, break apart this business basic by rocking a blazer with jeans or a dress.
3. Knited sweater. After boots and jeans, sweaters are my very favourite clothing item to wear in fall. There is nothing, in my opinion, that beats a cozy sweater on a chilly fall day.
4.Fall Florals & animal prints. Floral isn't just for spring. This fall, select deeply-hued, autumnal floral prints. These look best when paired with rich neutrals like charcoal, black, navy and camel. Trends are often similar- florals grounded on dark backgrounds, which I love for fall, and animal prints, of course.
5. Leather biker jacket . The staple fall coat for probably any climate is a leather jacket. Update this must-have basic by selecting a motorcycle silhouette in classic black, trendy burgundy, or even a bolder neutral.... and wear it with everything! They are the great outfit makers and fit with almost everything you can find in your closet.
6. Long boots. Tall boots are nice to have as well — especially when the weather turns cold because they provide an extra layer of warmth and makes your look more elegant.
7. A scarf. It keeps you warm and can add extra charm to our outlook if you use it well. Accesoiries like this can change whole look from good to bad and opposite, so its important.
8. Clasic camel or black coat. Absolute falls classics!
9. Loafers. When you’re tired of wearing sandals but it’s still too hot for boots, ballet flats or loafers are the perfect shoes to transition you from summer to fall. I’ve always loved a good ballet flat, but right now I’m really enjoying loafers and mules. They tend to look a little more modern and stylish for me.
10. Jeans. Even if you work in a professional environment and only wear jeans on weekends and the occasional date night, a great fitting pair of jeans is a wardrobe item almost every woman should have in her closet. Denim trends are in transition right now, but I’m seeing a little bit of everything. I recommend wearing the style(s) that looks best on you and experiment a bit with the newer trendy cuts.
