Fall fashion is all about looking cool, but staying warm. Even the most incredible outfits can fall flat if you’re stood there shivering. When it’s cold outside, you need to master the art of being both stylish and comfortable. It’s not always easy to do, but here’s a few things to keep in mind.
Your toes are one of the first body parts to suffer when temperatures drop. The pumps and sandals are put away for something more heavy-duty. My number one shoe pick for fall always starts off with a pair of ankle boots. It’s really versatile, and can be worn with jeans, skirts, and dresses. Tan and black are the best options, as they tend to complement most colours. I love a walkable heel, but the Chelsea boot is a great casual look option as well. Once you’ve found the perfect ankle boots – a pair of sneakers, combat boots, and some pointed flats are other great fall shoe add-ons.
– Jackets & coats
It only makes sense that these are essential additions to any fall wardrobe. As the seasons change, you’ll probably need a couple of different options. Light parkas and bomber jackets are great casual outfit choices, but macs and trench coats are definitely my favourites in fall. Faux fur is also a favourite detail of mine to have in a jacket – which also helps you keep warm as well. Camel, navy, burgundy, and black are always popular hues for the fall/winter. Since fall is such a short lived season it’s also best to look into sales and money saving offers such as Journey coupons.
For many of us, buying new sweaters and cardigans is the highlight of fall fashion. There’s something comforting about cuddling up on the sofa in a warm jumper. I love a good roll neck on colder days and cardis in warmer temperatures. Jewel tones or my number one favourite – neutrals and beiges – are always popular in the fall. Autumnal shades like red, burnt orange and brown also look great at this time of year.
When you’re getting dressed in the fall, take a look at the weather forecast, and think about what you’re doing. If you’re going out for the night, and you’re getting a cab, you can get away with wearing heels. If you’re going for a walk in the forest, you’ll need to wrap up and put on warm, comfortable shoes. If you’re going from day to night, make use of layers. You can throw a cardigan or jacket over a blouse or dress to keep you warm after dark. Who else is excited for fall?!
