Fall, my favourite time of the year. What’s not to love, crunchy leaves, trees changing colour, pumpkin spice everything, cooler weather… Ahh it’s the absolute BEST! Today I am going to talk about my top 5 items every girl must have to get her through the chilly fall months.
Although I have recently moved back to Australia and unfortunately it’s not fall here at the moment it is back in the USA and that part of the world so thought I would do a roundup now and keep these in my memory bank for when fall rolls around here in Aus.
If you have these 5 items in your closet, the fall months will be a lot cozier and stylish!
1: Plaid Scarf (Preferably oversized)
Because who doesn’t love to wrap themselves in a big, soft, cozy scarf?! I know I sure do! And the best thing about an oversized scarf is it can double as a blanket if you’re on a flight or maybe in the car. Also I have an obsession with scarves in general, they are the must have accessory that can transform any outfit to look that little bit extra extra. Changing the scarf but wearing the same outfit can completely make it seem like a new outfit all together. I have included a few different options below.
2: Oversized Hat
Hat’s… they make you feel stylish, chic and put together AND they cover up a bad hair day…UM HELLO, CAN I GET A HELL YES! I confess I am a bit of a hat addict, yes yes I know I already have too many but I just can’t help myself when I see another one in store in a new colour, I need to add it to my collection! They also help to keep you head warm as the weather gets cooler. I love nothing better than hiding under a hat and big sunglasses on my way to weekend brunch dates. Below are just a few of my faves out there right now.
3: Chunky Sweater
Big roll necks, extra large, chunky and warm and pretty patterns like cable knit or waffle. We all need a few super snuggly chunky knits in our closet to be on constant rotation in the fall! I even like to wear a good sleeveless one under a cardigan or leather jacket. Below is a few beauties out now.
4: Ankle Booties
I love ankle booties as you can wear them with jeans, leggings and even skirts and dresses. They can be made to look dressy or perfectly casual for the office or weekend days out. They don’t make you too hot as they aren’t covering your whole leg and there are so many cute flat or heeled versions around. I am especially loving leopard print ones at the mo! Check out these gorgeous ones.
5: Plaid Top
I really discovered my love for Plaid when I moved to Canada. I mean how could I not? Everyone wears it there, sort of like a right of passage. It’s so comfy and cosy and made me felt like I fit in with the locals haha. I love to pair mine with a pair of jeans, some boots or converse and a utility jacket over the top. If you prefer to wear your open you can put a tank top underneath. There are so many different variations of the print out there, I have rounded up just a few below.
What are your fall staples? I would love to hear!
