5 Must Haves for Your Fall Outfits

Whew. It’s been an interesting week. For me, it’s a combination of an exhausting week at work and of course, the election. I’m not one to get personal about politics but to ignore an event like that feels wrong. I’m sad to see the divide the election has caused and I hope we can all work together to end the hate from both sides and be kinder to one another. I will be doing my part to donate my time and energy to charitable causes that I personally believe in. I hope you’ll consider doing the same to build positivity in your community.

5 Must Haves for Your Fall Outfits

With that said, my goal in blogging is to bring a distraction from the outside world. To some, fashion may seem frivolous, but to a lot of us, it brings joy to a dark day. With that in mind, what better topic to talk about than fall fashion?! If that doesn’t bring joy, then I don’t know what will. ;)

Fall Outfit Essential: The Plaid Jacket

When I saw this adorable plaid jacket from Banana Republic styled by Olivia Palermo, I knew I had to have it in my life. To me, plaid is a quintessential staple in any fall wardrobe, and even more so here in Seattle. One might be able to go so far as to say plaid is a neutral here, and I’m totally okay with that.

When it comes to finding the right jacket, it’s all about fit. The worst is a too snug or too loose jacket. This one is perfect, fitted through the sleeve and shoulder and a straight cut that skims the body. Unfortunately this was sold out in petite sizing, so I’m planning to take this to the tailor for a sleeve adjustment but a size 2 fit me well otherwise. I would say Banana Republic sizing is generous, though I could have worn a size 4 with a bit more space for layering.

Fall Outfit Essential: The Turtleneck

I for one am thrilled to see turtlenecks making a comeback. Once thought to be mom shirts, well at least for me anyway, turtlenecks make layering incredibly easy and stylish. What I love about this ribbed version¬†from Banana Republic is the cut. It’s fitted through the waist without making me feel self conscious. The slight ribbing is a subtle detail that creates a slimming effect. I chose black because I knew I would wear it over and over again, and the size small is a perfect fit. Not too tight and not too loose either.

Fall Outfit Essential: Burgundy Anything

Can we talk about my favorite fall color? You know, burgundy. Oxblood. Maroon. Wine. Whatever you call it, you need it in your wardrobe yesterday. My latest addition was this pair of cords from Stitch Fix {similar here from Kut from the Kloth}. Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but they are also extremely fitted and flattering. They also play well with my neutral basics and add a fun pop of color to an otherwise boring outfit.

Fall Outfit Essential: Ankle Boots

Oh ankle boots, how I love you. I have worn these Steve Madden Pistol Booties every day since the arrived on my doorstep after the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Call me obsessed, call them too comfortable. Whatever it is, you need a similar pair in your wardrobe. What I like about this particular pair is the pointed toe, which makes this short girl feel taller, and the heel which is comfortable to walk in but also adds to the height illusion. Plus the fact that they are black and go with pretty much everything makes them the best investment I’ve made this season.

Fall Outfit Essential: Statement Accessory

While the blanket scarf may be arguably the most popular accessory of fall, I’m going to share something I like a bit more. For me, the updated statement necklace is a must have. This necklace from Banana Republic combines two of my favorite jewelry details: a choker and tassels. The long length will elongate the frame, and the simple colors of this necklace make it the perfect piece to wear over and over again.

From the perfect fall jacket to the colors of the season, my fall must-haves are the type of wardrobe pieces that I look forward to unpacking at the start of every season. Best of all, each piece is a timeless addition to your wardrobe that you will wear for seasons to come.

What are some of your fall must-haves? Have you added any new pieces to your wardrobe this fall that you’ve loved? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

    I love the ‘everything burgundy’ necessity! As soon as fall hits, I wear burgundy 24/7. :) & fall booties are my absolute favorite. Scarves are another necessity for fall for me. I can’t live without it.
