Goodbye summer…hello fall! Can you believe it’s already time for pumpkin spiced candles, beautiful fall foliage, and of course all the fall fashion our closets can handle? I can’t…and although I usually feel pretty lucky to reside in South Central Texas where the summers are long and the heat is intense for most visitors but not us locals, I’m actually really looking forward to this fall season. I’ve been doing a lot of window shopping to find all of my must have picks for the fall, and I have to say I’ve really come up with a great wish list that I’m happy to share with you to help a girl out!
If you follow this blog then you know one of my all-time favorite style tips is to invest in staple pieces that are timeless, and therefore can be reused and styled in different ways. Sometimes these pieces can even transition from one season to the next…just by throwing a blazer over or adding a boot. So, if your currently trying to map out your autumn looks, check out some of these pieces below!
Floral Surplice Bell Sleeve Romper
I love the deep autumn colors of the romper with its maroon, red, and pink. I also love the flower print because it livens up the piece with a feminine feel to it. I know most people associate a romper with summer, but truthfully the right kind of romper can totally be worn in the fall, just like this piece. This romper has three-quarter bell sleeves and a surplice wrapped front. The sleeves are what really make it a good fall transition piece, and the wrapped front is always a flattering touch. Pair this outfit with some ankle boots and you are good to go! This piece is from Express and currently 30% off.
Ribbed Sleeveless Turtleneck Sweater
I’ve been wearing turtleneck sweaters for as long as I can remember! They are definitely a go to of mine. I find them to be on the more dressier and sophisticated side. This particular one is perfect for fall because its sleeveless. You can pair it with a skirt, tights, and boots or with jeans and a blazer. Something a little extra about this piece is that it has a stripped detail on both the bottom of the blouse and on the neck, giving it a more textured look with that little extra oomph. This sweater is currently 30% off at Express.
Plaid Side Zip Moto Mini Skirt
I needed this skirt two weeks ago when I attended the Clueless movie party at the Alamo Drafthouse grrrrrrrrrr!!! But that’s ok, I know I’ll get plenty of use out of it the next few months. By the way, plaid is totally on trend this season, which is great for you and I because this plaid skirt is just the cutest! It has a branded waist with button snaps and a zip up back. The hem is straight and there’s an exposed side zip detail. I just love all the vibes of this skirt for fall. Pair it with a black sweater and boots and your look is complete from head to toe! The best part, is that this skirt is 40% off right now at Express.
Ribbed Elbow Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater
This black turtle neck is a fall staple piece that you will definitely get much use out of this season. The ribbed elbow sleeves are just perfect for fall. You can dress it down with skinny jeans and statement earings..or dress it up with a leather skirt and ankle boots. You can find this sweater at Express currently 30% off.
This ruffle sleeved off the shoulder blouse is definitely a statement piece with that WOW factor. It comes in either a tan or black shade, has a side zip, and a belt that wraps around and ties at the front. To me, this piece is a perfect addition to your fall wardrobe for any parties or special events you’ve got planned. Pair it with some black skinny jeans and jeweled earings and your look is complete! This shirt is from Venus and is currently just under $40 dollars.
I’m in love with this show stopping black romper! It’s sexy yet classic all at the same time! It has a high neck, sheer sleeves and back, and lace detailing throughout. Pair it with some high heels and you’ve got that perfect outfit for an autumn night out on the town! You can buy this piece from Venus for $54 dollars.
A good black bootie heel is a must to use across the board for all your fall outfits. If you only care to invest in one boot this fall, I recommend this one. Why? Well because this boot will go with just about anything, plus this particular one on my wish list has a little extra style to it with its perforated design, peep toe, buckle detail, and stacked heel. It’s yours for just under $40 dollars from Venus.
Ok so my previous pick was a black bootie, so how about a tan bootie to round out your new fall boots for the season. This particular pair is swede with a three-inch heel and buckle closure. Pair these with a sweater dress or romper to round the look out and you’re good to go! These boots are under $35 dollars from Venus.
Kate Spade New York bedazzled felt beret
This beret comes in either a smoky black or clear grey. My pick is the black! What I like about this particular beret is that it has a little bling to it with crystal detailing. It’s made from 90% wool, 10% nylon. I love these hats for both the fall and winter. I think they can help accessorize a look, and this particular one will match just about all your fall pieces. Just to a visualize, pair it with a nice sweater, skirt, and boots and your bound to get tons of compliments 😉
Venice Beach Tan Suede Leather Mini Skirt
We all need a good quality suede skirt in our lives this fall! I found the perfect one from Lulus. It’s made from soft genuine suede leather, has a high waist, and flares to an A-line mini skirt at the bottom. What makes this suede skirt stand out to me is the extra detail with it’s side slit and diagonal welted front pockets. It’s a little more expensive then some of the other pieces I’ve linked, but again it’s good quality and a super versatile skirt. Pair it with a tan suede boots and sweater top and you looking fab! This skirt is just under $100 dollars from Lulus.
Black mid rise stretch skyscraper jeans
I mentioned black skinny jeans earlier. I think they’re an important part of your fall wardrobe for all your casual days to pair up with a sweater or top. My fall pick is from Express. This particular style that I’ve linked is a mid rise stretch jean that’s both sexy slim fitting and comfty at the same time! These jeans have a button closure with zip fly and skyscrpaer leg which gives that illision of longer legs..yes! You can buy them right now 40% off at Express so snag them while you can!
