*First of all, my apologies for the lack of posts last week! Blogger has been doing something weird for me lately where it is only publishing half the post. On Friday, when this post originally went live, it cut off at number 5. I could not figure it out then so I reverted it back to a draft. All 8 items should be showing now. If anybody else has had problems like this please leave a comment. I would love to try to figure out why this is happening.*
Like it or not, fall will be here soon. I know some people cannot wait for fall to arrive, but I personally will be soaking up every ounce of summer until the fall weather arrives. Once fall is here, though, I will be all for it! I truly love each season. Well, if winter could be shortened by like a month I would be totally fine with that ha. That being said, now is the perfect time to start building your fall wardrobe. Even though I want to spend my days at the pool, get some final use out of my favorite shorts, and enjoy the longer amounts of daylight, I am still getting very excited for fall fashion. Classic pieces that return each year are starting to fill the shelves at stores. In addition, there are some great trends for fall this year. I've rounded up a list of 8 pieces I think you need in your fall wardrobe. Four are trendy pieces for fall and four are classic pieces you'll wear again and again.
The best part, is that these pieces can all be mixed together to create different looks. Get a slip dress in plain black, and layer a camo top underneath. Put the suede vest over the turtleneck and pair it with the black jeans. Wear your striped flutter sleeve top with a skirt and booties now, and pair it with some jeans when it gets cooler. Wear the blanket scarf like a shawl and pair it with the slip dress and some studded heels for a fun night out look. Rock the black jeans with a camo top and suede vest for an edgier look. The options are endless! Keep reading to see why I love these pieces and to find more colors and styles for each piece.
1. The Slip Dress: Slip dresses have gradually been getting more and more popular. (This can be said for pretty much anything that resembles 90s fashion.) This is a great piece to buy now, because you can wear it now on it's own. As it gets colder, you can layer it. Wear a t-shirt underneath, add a leather jacket over top, put a turtleneck underneath, top it with a cozy cardigan. There are so many options! Worried about it looking like pajamas? Pick a bold pattern, a longer length, and avoid any lace.
3. Flutter Sleeve: Fun sleeves are having a major moment right now. Everything from over-sized bell sleeves to flutter sleeves can be found of various tops and dresses. (Remember this post with my flutter sleeve top?!) This small detailing is such a fun touch to an otherwise basic piece. This is a trend that can easily be worn to work, especially if the piece has structure like the top in the collage.
4. Something Suede: Suede was huge last year at this time. I am sure you remember seeing those suede button up mini skirts everywhere! This year, suede is back. However, now there are so many more options and styles to choose from! I'm currently debating between a suede vest and a suede jacket. I want to pick the one I'll wear the most. (I will probably be buying this during a Labor Day sale, when most stores offer 40% off!)
8. Scarves: No surprise here! Blanket scarves have been huge for going on two years now. (It all started with this plaid one.) Blanket scarves have now expanded to many different patterns and colors. I recently purchased the leopard print one and I can't wait to wear it. (For ideas on how I style my blanket scarf head here and here.) Not into the blanket scarf trend? Grab a smaller scarf (bandanna sized) and tie it around your neck (like in the suede vest picture). The smaller scarf is such a cute and on trend look at the moment!
What part of fall fashion are you most looking forward to!? Let me know in the comments!
