This Saturday marks the first official day of Fall and even though it’s still 95 degrees in Dallas, I’m preparing for the leaves to change and the temps to drop! I put together a list of the Top 5 Must Haves for Fall that will get you through the entire season and onto the next. I bet you already have some in your closet too!
1. The Perfect Denim Jacket
This one took me forever to find. Seriously. I can’t tell you how many denim jackets I tried on before finding my perfect one! This one in particular is stretchy, and just slightly distressed and fits perfectly. If you want one that is slightly more oversized, check this one out! It has a little more distressing, too much for what I was looking for, but the fit and fabric were amazing! Right now, I’m bringing this jacket with me when I go anywhere because I’m always cold, but it also looks cute when its tied around your waist! Want to wear it, but want to look ultra chic? Drape it over your shoulders and keep on walking! I love how a denim jacket can take an all black outfit and bump it up a notch, or take a summery looking outfit and instantly turn it into Fall. True story: I thought I left this jacket on the airplane coming from from my bachelorette party and I was legitimately about to buy it again. That’s how much I love it!
2. Leopard Print
It’s no surprise that leopard print is a huge trend this Fall! I think it will carry into the Winter too, so getting yourself a shoe in a classic style with this fun print will serve you for many seasons to come! I don’t know if I’m on the leopard print bootie train yet, but these are super cute! I am on the hunt for the perfect leopard print heel that I can take to the office and date night! I think these are so dreamy, I just need to go try them on! I’m team all black everything in the colder months, and I think all black with a pop of leopard print would look stunning! Also, leopard is pretty much a neutral at this point so wear it with other neutrals and you’re good to go! Not into the leopard shoe? Try the leopard dress, or cardigan! I’m definitely getting this neck scarf and wearing it tied on my bag in the Fall too!
3. Black Jeans
This one has got to be one that most everyone already has in their closet….well except for me. This is the number 1 thing on my shopping list for Fall because I bought an inexpensive pair from TopShop last year and they faded into gray after one wash. Not cool. I’ve heard great things about these jeans and they just launched! They’re curve hugging, stretchy, and come in petite, regular and tall! Plus they’re currently on sale for $28 and in my shopping cart!
4. Plaid Blazer
This one is a new, but very welcomed, trend for me! I’m all about a good blazer and I love me some plaid! I’ve had a plaid coat from H&M that I have worn to death so getting a plaid blazer is something that is definitely going to happen. There are tons of different options from high end, to low end that will make sure you’re standing out when the leaves start falling! This one is on my list, but if you want to splurge, this one looks so nice!
Everyone owns a pair of booties! But did you know there are tons of ways to wear them? I love pairing booties with skinny jeans that are cuffed at the bottom, but jeans with a raw hem are becoming more and more popular and look so cute with a bootie too! Also, because I’m in Texas, booties with skirts and dresses are a huge hit! Pair a light weight dress with a cardigan and some booties and you’re good to go! Peep toe booties are great for fall transition, and cut out booties are becoming popular again this year!
I hope this list is something that gets you through Fall and into Winter! Stay tuned for more fall content because it’s my favorite season and I just love the colors and fashion!
