3 Wardrobe Basics You Need For Fall
Hey guys! Popping in today with another fashion post because Colorado inspired us so much for the season ahead. We’ve said this before, but fall is our favorite season to dress for! When I was packing for this trip, I noticed some consistencies in what I was planning for outfits and figured I’d share it today as three wardrobe basics you need for fall. All of these are necessities but can also be found on a budget!
#1. A Great Hat
You’ve probably noticed that I’m a bit hat obsessed. I’m not quite sure where this obsession originated from, but I wear them all the time. From baseball hats with athletic clothes, all the way to feminine hats with ribbon, I feel like hats are my most used accessory. When we were in Charleston, I realized just how expensive some hats can be. I’ve never paid more than $100 for a hat and most of mine are under $40. This black fedora from Asos is only $24 and it’s adjustable too with a ribbon inside that can tighten or loosen to fit your head shape. The key is to order from a site like Asos or Nordstrom where they give free shipping and free returns; that way, you can always send it back if you don’t like the look of it once it arrives!
#2 A Flattering Pair Of Boot Cut Jeans
I hate to even say this because I know that this may not be popular opinion…but I’m over skinny jeans. This season, I’m noticing more flared jeans and even bootcut coming back. For me, I feel like this is a much more flattering option, especially as someone who definitely has hips! High waisted and flared jeans are so forgiving, especially in a dark wash like these. As someone who rarely splurges on a pair of jeans, I’ve rounded up my favorite budget friendly boot cut/flares for you guys to take a look at. Trust me when I say, they are much more flattering than the skinny jeans out there.
#3 A Fun Sweater
Is it even fall if you don’t have a fun, new sweater to wear? This one made me smile and its slightly cropped fit pairs perfectly with high waisted jeans so that you don’t have tons of fabric bunching up when it’s tucked in. I always like to think about sweaters in terms of layering: Can you easily add a coat over it in the winter? Do you have a scarf that would pair well? Here are my current favorites for fall:
On Katherine: Asos sweater, Asos hat, Wit and Wisdom jeans, similar booties, similar belt, Michele watch, tassel earrings
On Brandon: Nordstrom sweater, Banana Republic jeans, Sperry shoes
