Even though we are halfway through the fall season I thought I would share with you my 5 favourite fall items I love to keep in my closet for the season. I am the first one to always shop way too much throughout the season. There are just too many cute pieces out there for me to drool over! Even though there are so many amazing pieces and styles to shop from, I thought I would make it easier for you to narrow it down to the basics.
1. Knit Sweaters
Of course, as it gets chillier outside we all need a cozy knit sweater to style with all of our fall looks. Choosing the right knit sweater can make your outfits look elegant and cozy at the same time. Some things I take into consideration when choosing the right knits for fall. First off, if I am shopping for a basic knit that I can wear and interchange with multiple outfits I love to choose a basic colour. This white one is perfect because it helps to brighten up any outfit with the moody and dark tones for fall. As you may know, I love fun and bright colours, so instead of choosing a black or burgundy knit as my essential sweater. This white one is perfect. Not only is it versatile but it is also very cozy effective and cozy!
2. Velvet Pants
If there was one thing I would recommend adding to your wardrobe this fall it would be velvet pants. They are definitely my top wardrobe staples and every year I can’t wait to bring them out. If you find yourself a great pair of velvet pants they will make any outfit look polished and as an added bonus, they are very comfortable. I absolutely love these whisky coloured pants. They pair nicely with any other fall colours such as maroon, forest green, brown, and mustard. My favourite velvet pants are from J.Crew. I absolutely love their quality and variety of colours. These raspberry coloured ones are currently on my wishlist. I styled these pants very casually with my sweater and loafers but you can easily dress them up with a fitted blazer and heels.
Ever since the famous Gucci loafers hit the streets back in 2015, loafers have been everywhere. I am a sucker for a gorgeous heel but for an everyday shoe, I am going to opt for a comfortable one. I have been wearing loafers all season long and they are by far some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I found these burgundy leather loafers from Zara, they were even featured in my top 6 favourite loafers for fall.
4. Burgundy Cross Body
I love having a go-to purse I can just grab and go every day. When transitioning into the fall and winter seasons the last thing you want to carry is a tote or a handbag. Sometimes switching purses can cause me to forget so many things. This can be a very annoying habit so I started to opt for a go-to purse to carry around for every season. Burgundy is the new black for my fall wardrobe. At the beginning of the season, I was looking for a colour that would manage to go with the majority of my fall wardrobe. This burgundy one was the perfect one for me. You can see I have styled it here to my visit to The Grange last weekend.
5. Square Scarf
Accessories have the power to completely change the look and feel of an outfit. Square silk scarves are the perfect piece to add a splash of colour to a basic outfit for a very low cost. For the fall I have been loving this olive green one. Adding square silk scarves is so versatile and can be worn so many different ways. I wear them all year long because I love preppy vibe they can add to any one of my outfits.
