five fall/winter must haves

Everyone loves fall for one reason or another. Depending where you live, fall can mean different things for you. For me, it means darker colored clothing, sweaters and leggings. I also love a good all-black outfit, I don’t see it as “gothic”, but instead totally chic. So for my top five…

1.     Sweaters. A sweater tied around your waist is the perfect accessory for any outfit in my opinion. I would suggest two size variations for your wardrobe, a large one that covers your behind and a slim/tight sweater. For the more fitted sweater I would wear with pants, skirts, dresses, etc. For the larger sweater, it is perfect to wear with leggings, Nike shorts (think walking to class when it’s only semi-chilly), skirts, and cute skinny jeans (ripped jeans if you’re feeling extra trendy). Remember the longer sweater will more than likely cover the shorts and the skirts, but if styled correctly, it can be very cute.

2.     Leggings. I am one that believes that leggings can absolutely be considered pants if worn appropriately. Rule of thumb, just make sure your behind is covered. Leggings are so incredibly comfortable, as well as very versatile. I wear them almost everyday in the winter months.

3.     Boots. Obviously a must for fall/winter, boots are the trendy and comfortable alternative to heels. When styled correctly they can go with almost any outfit, almost. I suggest tall pair black and brown boots, as well as a pair of both tan and gray ankle booties. If you only can pick one, I would go with the black boots they are the most versatile, and the tan ankle booties.



4.     Leather jacket. The perfect way to spice up your outfit while adding the warmth you need during the colder months. It will be a staple in your closet for years and years to come, so if you can invest in a nice one I would.

5.     Black long sleeve shirt. Probably what I wear the most, with almost every outfit. Just like with the sweaters, I suggest a long one that can cover your behind, and a shorter/tighter one you can wear with pants and skirts.

I hope you enjoy! What are some of your fall/winter must haves?

  5. Great essentials! I actually gave away a lot of my sweaters when I moved cities because they were so bulky. At the moment I'm raiding my brother's closet for oversized sweaters. Need to get myself some soon! Really like the Loft one you featured!

  7. Oh my gosh, you can absolutely never go wrong with a J.Crew sweater! They're absolutely the best! Vineyard Vines has been doing a great job with their sweaters recently though.

  12. I need more sweaters! I went through a phase of not wearing them (thanks to boiling hot dorm rooms) and now I'm lacking. Long-sleeved black shirts are my favorite thing for fall and winter :)

  16. I so agree that leggings are pants, as long as your behind is covered! I don't understand why people get so worked up about it. I try to get my tops in multiple lengths, as well! Great post, and I'm so excited for you with your rebrand :)
