10 Fashion essentials every girl needs in her wardrobe this fall
Fall is with us once again, and that means putting away all the lightweight tops, open toed sandals, and summer dresses, and getting out the bulky heavy outfits you have in your wardrobe. It also means working out what you will be wearing this autumn, and what new clothes you might need to buy. You may feel like you want to have a complete revamp of your wardrobe to welcome in the new season, or you may want to make use of some of the classics that you already have. Either way, here are ten of the essential items that every girl will need to have in her wardrobe this fall.
1. Skinny jeans
You just can’t go wrong with a good pair of skinny jeans. They look great with a causal tee-shirt, or you can smarten up the look with a crisp looking blouse and a smart pair of shoes. Dark wash denim skinny jeans give you the most options and they will fit well with the darker colours of the season.
2. Chunky sweater
We might be guilty of stating the obvious here, but a chunky sweater just has to be an essential fashion item for the fall. They are warm, practical, and there is no end of designs to choose from. A chunky sweater is just what you will need to keep out those cold autumn winds and make you feel cosy, whatever the weather throws at you, but you can still take it off, if the weather does warm up a bit.
3. White Tee shirt
Another one of the classic fall fashion staples is the white Tee. You need to think about layering in the autumn, because then you can change your clothes, as quickly as the weather can change. If you are wearing a great looking white Tee shirt, it can go beneath your chunky sweater for warmth, and look good worn on its own too. A white Tee is so versatile; it’s just what a girl needs at this time of year.
4. Tailored blazer
In these, in between days, of fall, a tailored blazer makes a great alternative to a heavy winter coat. It’s another one of the versatile classics too. A blazer will add something to your work outfits, or it can be used to create a chic, yet casual, look when worn with jeans. You can even wear a tailored blazer with a cocktail dress for those autumn evening events too.
5. Suede dress
A suede dress is warm enough for the cooler weather, but not too heavy. It also fits nicely with this year’s trend for retro 70’s and mod styles. Suede has been much in evidence on the runways this season, so any suede that you add to your fall wardrobe will be a fashion bonus this year.
6. Trench coat
The classic trench coat is an iconic staple that has a place in every girl’s wardrobe. It can be worn in so many different ways and it’s practical for this time of year too. If you want to dress it down, you can pair it with skinny jeans and a Tee shirt, or dress it up with an elegant dress and a pair of classic heels.
7. Knee high boots
A pair of knee-high boots is always a good investment and they will always look stylish, especially at this time of year. They keep your legs warm and your feet dry and they look fabulous with knitted dresses, leather skirts, or with jeans and a chunky sweater.
8. Leather jacket
Leather jackets have been around forever and they will never go out of style. You have thousands of different colours and styles to choose from and they last forever. A leather jacket is ideal for keeping out the cold winds. You can simply throw it on anytime, and it will look great with pretty much anything.
9. Patchwork bootie
Anything patchwork goes this fall and, if you want to put a twist on the theme, how about trying out the latest trend in patchwork Booties. Ankle booties go equally well with pants and skirts and they make your legs look longer too. Choosing a patchwork style bootie is just the thing as an update on the usual black or brown.
10. Little black dress
The little black dress can be worn for so many different occasions, because it is so easy to accessorise. Day, or night, when worn by itself, it just screams elegance and style, and it will look equally good worn with boots and a hat. It’s no wonder that the glamorous little black dress is still a firm favourite with everyone.
