Hold onto your pumpkin spice lattes and buckle up, ladies. It’s time for my roundup of everything you need [ okay, not really need, but… ] in your closet for fall! We don’t get a change of season here in SoCal, but growing up in Chicago I used to love watching the leaves change and feeling the air get just a little bit chilly. So I’ve rounded up my fall wardrobe necessities for you babes who live in cooler temps! Going to have to live vicariously through y’all on this one. Keep scrolling!
Obvious necessity for fall : a cozy as h-e-double-hockey-sticks sweater! Pair with some worn in denim and you’re good to go carve a pumpkin or make a turkey or whatever fall activity you please. For my look, Lulus sent me this super soft sweater and a pair of distressed jeans!
FALL SWEATERS + JACKETS
What I love about dressing for fall is that there’s more opportunity to accessorize! Brisk autumn air allows for layering with scarves, adding a hat or zipping up a pair of tall boots.
Another plus about fall fashion is that even if you don’t live in a cool climate, you can still exude an autumn vibe by sticking to the fall color palette. I’m talkin’ golden yellow, deep orange, brown, burgundy and forest green! Since it’s currently 86 degrees and too hot for me to wear a sweater, I’m still dressing for fall by swapping my usual whites and brights with more natural, earthy tones.
For my take on the fall color palette, I chose a chestnut brown [ with a hint of orange ] faux suede jacket + classic skinny jean from Lulus!
