Finally fall fashion is here, and we fashion lovers could not be more excited. Fall is the time for
layering, neutrals, and lots of faux leather. One’s style can be flaunted in the fall by mixing pieces
to create the ultimate outfit. No matter what micro-trends may be in style this fall, there are certain staple pieces that you need in your wardrobe in order to create the perfect fall ‘fit, and lucky for you I will give you all the juicy details on what to buy and where to buy it. You’re welcome!
The leather jacket– The leather jacket is the perfect example of a versatile fall item. It is usually light enough to wear even on the occasional high-sixty degree day, but can also provide warmth when paired with a sweater on a chillier day. The best place to find a leather gem? You already know it’s at the thrift store. Oftentimes these pieces will be priced far below their original selling point and are still in great condition.
The leather pant– Just like the leather jacket, the leather pant is another fall staple to whelp elevate your wardrobe. Any outfit you would wear with jeans can be switched out for the leather pant. Pair them with the leather jacket for a full-leather look, or add a graphic tee on top for that rockstar look. ASOS has great options for all genders and styles.
The chunky boot– Whether Dr. Martens or Naked Wolfe, chunky boots are an inescapable part of fall
fashion. There’s nothing more powerful than stepping out in a pair of boots that make you look and feel
good. Rock them with a classic pair of straight leg jeans, or a sweater and mini skirt combo. If you’re not a fan of the platform, Dr. Martens also has plenty of flat boots too. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, check ASOS or even your local thrift store.
The sweater vest– Are we surprised? The sweater vest has had us in a chokehold for the past year now. This functional piece can be worn over a t-shirt or even a silk button-down to create a more interesting fit. Go to a thrift store or search Depop or Poshmark for the perfect sweater vest.
The matching lounge set– Possibly one of the only good things to come out of this pandemic is the normalization of wearing loungewear in public. If you don’t already have a matching set, this is your sign to get one. It creates a put-together-looking outfit without having to do any of the work. Target and Entireworld have the coziest sweatsuits.
