Happy October Fashionistas!
Time to break out the sweaters and the boots with the fur (thank you Flo-Rida), it’s officially fall! The air smells like Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the leaves are turning all kinds of crazy colors! While I am a through and through beach bumming, summer-loving mermaid at heart, I have a soft spot for these last few months of the year. Who doesn’t love cozy socks and hot chocolate honestly?!
The sun is taking a little break, so you know what that means—SWEATER WEATHER! It’s time to swap out your bikinis for a few more layers to shield you from that cool October breeze! If the thought of putting your favorite Versakini to the back of the closet is one you just can’t comprehend, no worries. We’ll get through this together! There are plenty of ways to keep it cool and stylish with a pair of shorts and sandals. We’re talking fall fashion must-haves.
Let’s get this going from the feet up (started from the bottom). First things first, booties. No, I’m not referring to Nicki Minaj or Kim K, but the super adorable shoes of this season. Boots are an absolute necessity. Combat boots, ankle boots, fuzzy boots, knee-highs, Uggs—any will do! Boots will shield your toes from bitter cold and save you from a nasty case of frostbite. The great thing about boots is the ability to wear them with literally ANY outfit. They go with everything! Don’t forget to put on the fluffy Halloween socks before hand.
Leggings and yogas. One might argue that leggings are not actually pants, but I beg to differ. Leggings and yoga pants are essential to one’s fall wardrobe. I own quite a few pairs myself, and I live in them from October to March. They look adorable paired with big sweaters and cardigans, and they are sososo comfy. Who doesn’t want to look cute while feeling like they’re wearing pajamas?!
Yes, you guessed it. Oversized sweaters are next on the list. Here, the object is comfort, and you just cannot go wrong with a hoodie or sweater that reaches past your behind! There’s so many options here, so don’t be afraid to change it up!
Make like a lumberjack and break out the flannels. Flannel shirts are the epitome of fall fashion. They’re so cute, and so versatile. You can dress them up or down, pair them with jeans or leggings, and top it off with a cute cardigan. Or if you’re feeling playful, tie them round your waist as an accessory! So soft and so colorful, fall flannels are great.
Now, channel the biker chic within you and let’s talk about leather jackets. Whether it’s genuine or pleather, a fitted leather jacket is a must have in the fall. It gives any outfit an edgy vibe, and it’s great to layer with! There’s nothing better than a cool chic in a sick jacket. It just screams “don’t mess with me”, but keeps you warm and cozy at the same time.
To top it all off, let’s accessorize. Add a chunky scarf to your leggings and sweater outfit, and keep that neck nice and toasty. Or if you’re about the hats, you can’t go wrong with a beanie. They are the best for keeping your ears warm, and they look adorable with some loose curls. It’s the cherry on top!
So there you have it—the fall fashion must-haves! See, putting away those bikinis doesn’t have to be all bad! Let’s usher in October with a warm and cozy welcome! BE sure to visit me on Pinterest as well, for a visual of my fall closet!
Until next time,
