Fall is definitely my favorite season! I get so excited because I get to combine two of my absolute favorite things - cozy things and Fall fashion!
During the fall you get to do the best things: drink hot chocolate and have a movie night, crochet a blanket or a scarf, have a bonfire, snuggle up and read a new book. But also you have a new opportunity to wear your favorite clothes: cozy sweaters, your fuzzy boots, your comfy scarfs, and looking gorgeous while jumping in a pile of leaves.
You need to accept it. You have some emotional attachment to those cozy pieces that were waiting for you in your closet for a whole year, longing to be worn. Now you just need to add some new pieces that will add some edge to favorite comfy pieces.
Statement Aura’s experts have rounded up the top must-have fashion items for fall:
Fall fashion must-have #1. Teddy Bear Jacket
Teddy bear jackets are so great because they let you be simultaneously cozy, mobile, and all-around living your life.
It is the perfect soft and shaggy jacket that you can bundle yourself in like a cute lil' cinnamon bun, and still look fabulous. You can combine them with a satin camisole top to create the best fall-transition outfit with a hat and crystal statement earrings.
Also, create a contrasting sensation layering a black sweater outfit with a green-colored teddy bear jacket.
Fall fashion must-have #2. Combat Boots
Combat boots have been on everyone’s lips for a few years now, and we doubt they will ever go out of style. And why should they, when they are so cool and comfy, ready to create jaw-dropping everyday looks.
Combat boots are great because, when worn with a feminine outfit, they look edgy yet subtly glam-rock. They are the kind of ultra-versatile shoes that will keep you warm while at the same time helping you look like a futuristic warrior (maybe not that much!).
If you have some maxi-skirts left from summer season that you would like to hold onto for a little longer, match them with some combat boots, balloon sleeve sweater and of course to keep up with the glam-rock vibe: some flashing statement earrings
Fall fashion must-have #3. Over-the-knee boots
Maybe the glam-rock style is not for you. Perhaps you prefer an outfit with an elegant spark, and you are the kind of woman who prefers a challenge. Over-the-knee boots have always been considered the most challenging boot style to wear: only for the boldest.
If you are doubtful about using over-the-knee boots because you are too petite, discard every fashion myth you must have heard. Over-the-knee boots fit girls with small stature. It’s a good idea to always opt for heeled thigh-high boots and avoid flat ones, which will highlight your short height. Don’t choose skirts that are long to the extent that they hide your boots. This will make you look even shorter.
You can wear them with a long knit sweater over a short skirt or tight pants. If you want to make more fall-y (yep, we like creating words) choose some over-the-knee boots with snakeskin print.
Fall fashion must-have #4. Cowboy boots.
The designers really went above and beyond this year, crafting unique takes on cowboy boots for women. No matter where your tastes lie, you will find some incredibly fashionable cowboy boots that you can work into your look.
Cowboy boots tend to stand out, and should always be the focal point of your outfit. For a casual look pair them with cropped jeans. The easiest way is to wear team with a pair of straight-leg or skinny jeans, with muted solids or a monochrome look. And why not? The Teddy bear jacket.
If you are looking for some transition outfits you can wear your boots with some leather skirt, and a pullover. Also, a hat will complete the fall vibe.
If you’d like to avoid any hint of rodeo references, we suggest a two-piece outfit. Not only maxi dresses but also midi dresses, complement cowboy boots perfectly.
Fall fashion must-have #5. Animal print pieces.
Rocking animal prints is the sign of a true fashionista because you’re effectively toeing the line between dangerous and tacky. Managing to stay on the right side of animal print fashion is a mark of true sophistication.
Though leopard spots emerged as an early favorite, there's another bold pattern that's looming large this season: snakeskin. It doesn't matter whether you choose leopard print or snakeskin print the challenge is just as big and, when succeed, the sophistication achieved will be undeniable.
Remember that pieces that tend to stand out, need to be the focal point of your outfit. If you are not ready to jump into the deep wearing animal print, you can begin by wearing some accessories with a monochrome look. To achieve the monochrome look a good option is a blazer dress, which also is trending this year. With a monochromatic look, the animal-print belt can be added safely as a wow element.
Fall fashion must-have #6. Oversized button-up shirt.
The days where you only got to wear oversized button-ups as an improvised outfit or just for relaxation are over. Now wearing them is fashionable and shows the perfect equilibrium between sloppiness and style.
If you are looking for an idea of how to wear your bralette so it looks adorable here is an idea:
You can try loosely tucking the tee from the front into a pair of shorts or skinny jeans. You can even roll-up the sleeves and you are all set to go.
Fall fashion must-have #7. Slouchy pants.
To achieve the perfect look make sure you tuck your shirt into the pants. The right kind of shirt will help you to achieve a neat look. A good option for this fall are shirts with balloon sleeves.
Fall fashion must-have #8. Leather skirt/short.
Nothing says better: ‘fall is here’ than leather skirts. And since we have a balloon-sleeve fever, our outfit wouldn’t be complete without a balloon-sleeved shirt.
They are the perfect piece to transition between seasons. Whether worn bare-legged or with tights, a leather short is one of those indispensable pieces that can immediately turn an outfit around. Leather skirts have the power to instantly elevate a chunky knit sweater or plain turtleneck.
Fall fashion must-have #9. Balloon-sleeve sweater
I remember the good old days were the sleeves used to be puffed, instead of balloons. Just kidding. Balloon-sleeves are the best thing it’s happened since... soft yarn was invented (I guess) they are so comfy and warm. I love how they feel: not too hot, and not too cold. It is definitely a must-have for the cold season.
Fall fashion must-have #10. City Bag.
So you might be wondering: What do you mean by ‘city bag’? Well, we just took borrowed the term that the Zara catalog uses to refer to those cute little bags. Apparently, everyone in Paris is wearing leather separates, layered neutrals, and mini bags, but then we decided it's better to show than tell...
Probably you are also a "small-bag girl at heart", so check this out:
Fall fashion must-have #11. Vintage Blazer
What year is it, again? It may be hard to tell because a quick glance at the outfits of celebrities, street style icons, and store mannequins might make you feel like you've just stepped into a time capsule.
While trends come and go, there's something especially nostalgic about this season's biggest styles, especially oversized, plaid blazers are going to be everywhere this fall.
You can pair your oversized blazers with simple pieces, like t-shirts. You can wear it to work or on the weekend without feeling overly trendy or like you're trying too hard.
