As you may or may not know, fall fashion is clearly my favourite season (as it is for many other people!) I love being able to experiment with different layering techniques and styles, wear different jackets and coats of all sorts of fabrics and textures, and so much more. Throughout the years, I’ve really discovered my personal style and what I find essential. Here are my fall fashion essentials featuring new pieces I’ve added into my closet and ones I’ve worn for many years!
1. Corduroy Pants
Starting off with a piece in my closet that has been in my closet for many years is are these wide-legged corduroy pants from Forever21. If you’ve been following me, they are absolutely classic and essential in my closet. I’ve styled them countless times but you can watch this popular video on my YouTube channel below.
2. Faux Leather Pants
The Aritzia Melina pants have been trending over the last year and I’m proud to say that I’ve been wearing leather pants for slightly longer haha. I got this pair from Zara in 2019 and have styled them so many different ways. It’s such a great versatile piece that you can wear casually or dress up! Check out how I’ve styled them in my IG Guide below:
For the last 5 years, I’ve been influenced to wear berets by one of my close friends, Carolina! I think I own almost the entire rainbow but it’s been a staple in my closet and I love wearing them in the fall/winter season. You also don’t need to buy a super expensive one either. I usually get mine from Amazon Fashion or places that sell the brand Parkhurst.
4. Trench Coat
Out of all types of coats you can have in the fall, a timeless piece is definitely a good old-fashioned trench coat! I got this one from Na-kd. It was something I wanted last year but it was sold out quickly and it ended up being available in their Circle section which is actually preloved Na-kd items that are approved by Na-kd staff so I know the quality will be good and when it arrived, it was PERFECT. I absolutely love it and it will look great with so many outfits.
5. (Faux) Leather Jacket / Coat
A good (faux) leather jacket will stay in your closet for years! I love this colourblock suede jacket that I got from Ian Drummond Vintage. It has the perfect fall colours to wear but I also love me a good black leather jacket like you can see in this photo.
6. Fitted Turtlenecks
I feel like I don’t even need to talk about the versatility of a fitted turtleneck. I wrote a post recently showing you 13 Outfits To Show Why You Need A White Turtleneck and the same rules apply with any neutral turtleneck!
7. White Collared Blouse
A good white dress shirt makes a great layering piece or on it’s own! Whether you’re wearing it for work or not, you can make a white collared blouse work for any occasion. I personally prefer a sailor collar but any collar works! You can see how I layered a different white blouse below.
8. High Waisted Jeans
I cannot stress how great it is once you own a pair of high-waisted jeans that fit you perfectly! I found a pair from ASOS Design last year that I wear all the time and I recently added another pair from Stradivarius. Granted, I did have to cut this pair to make it fit lengthwise but other than that, they are the perfect lightwash.
The shoe of the season is chunky platform loafers but loafers in general, with no platform, are a classic piece to include in your closet! I wouldn’t invest in HUGE platforms but the chunky loafer is definitely trending again this year and are so fun to style! I purchased mine from ASOS but there are similar ones at H&M if you’re looking for affordable pairs!
10. Knee High Boots
Knee-high or over-the-knee boots are such a classic for fall and also a great way to transition into the fall season – especially paired with a good sweater dress! I am obsessed with this pair I got from Na-kd last year. They aren’t selling this exact pair but they currently have similar ones on their website.
