12 Fall Fashion Must-Haves for the New Season
You may not have to do back-to-school shopping, but everyone’s wardrobes could use a little fall fashion refresh. Don’t know where to start? Let this list be your guide; it has all the pieces your closet just won’t be complete without.
If you buy just one thing this season, let it be a pair of flared jeans. They’re essential to the fall fashion ’70s trend while still boasting the wear-with-anything appeal of denim. A high-waisted pair like these on Annabelle of VivaLuxury are the most flattering option.
Boho Maxi Dress
The most romantic way to channel the fall fashion bohemian trend is with a printed maxi dress. A peasant dress like this one on Ashley of Ring My Bell is so elegant and effortless. Slip it on with mules for a modern touch.
This suede dress on Liz of Late Afternoon is such a versatile piece. Really any suede dress, top, or skirt is a luxurious update to your fall wardrobe, especially in an autumnal shade like this tan or a rich jewel tone.
An elegant blouse can be your new wear-with-anything top this season. Our pick is the pussy-bow blouse because it plays into the retro trend and still looks so modern. Look for one with a tonal bow or a monochrome one like this one on Julia of Gal Meets Glam.
Over-the-knee boots are a fall fashion must-have yet again. Surprisingly versatile, they can balance a mini skirt in a layered look, like this one on Maja Wyh, or add cool textural contrast to a pair of leather leggings. Suede or leather, heeled or flat—the choice is yours!
Fringed accessories have infinite potential to update your fall fashion. Just one fringed piece—whether it’s a bag, a vest, or a pair of boots like these on Carolina of Fashion Squad—will transform any outfit. We’re partial to suede fringe for the textural contrast it lends.
Drab outerwear is a sure way to ruin a perfectly good outfit, so a pretty coat will be your smartest investment for the new season. Olivia Palermo makes a case for military-inspired coats with this beautiful double-breasted style. When a coat is as cozy as it is chic, you know you've got a winner!
A shearling vest like this one on Chiara of The Blonde Salad is the perfect layering piece for fall and will even work for those living in typically warmer states. The plush texture is enough to add an autumnal feel to your look whether it’s layered over a breezy blouse or a chunky sweater.
Enter your new favorite layering piece: the wrap. The most versatile choice would be a neutral hue and a midweight feel, but it’s hard to pass up the opportunity to fully embrace fall’s bohemian mood with a fringed patterned one like this one on Mary of Happily Grey.
We should have no trouble talking you into this cozy trend, but it’s worth noting that sweater dressing was spotted frequently on the fall fashion runways. Opt for a sumptuous sweater dress like this textured one on Blair of Atlantic Pacific.
A wide-brim fedora makes a statement against simple tees and sweater dresses. One in a retro shade of camel or a jewel tone like burgundy is a fashionable finish to a fall outfit. Take a cue from Rachel of Pink Peonies, and wear your plum hat with a matching lipstick.
If throw-on-and-go is your style motto most days, you need a matching set. It requires little thought to look this chic, and it’s essentially three outfits in one. Leave the airy, whimsical versions behind for a fashionable fall option like this pinstripe crop top and culottes on Krystal of This Time Tomorrow.
