Fall Fashion Must Haves

Five days into fall and I’m already showing you my 5 “Fashion Must Haves“. But just hear me out–while you may be rolling your eyes thinking “do I really have to go out and buy new things?” some of us secretly love it and it’s our job to sing it from the rooftops and hope that maybe you’ll let out a squeal or two if you find something you happen to love.

But what can I say? I’m psyched that this season is finally here because not only is it my favorite season for fashion, but I’ve adored the fall season ever since I was old enough to jump from the top of the picnic table into a huge pile of leaves my dad raked in our backyard.

So without further adieu, here is the list of the top five fall fashion must haves [according to me at least].

The menswear trend gets a feminine makeover with tailored jackets and paper-bag pants this season. Although this isn’t the first time hound sooth hopped onto the scene, checks are wreckin’ me with the need to spend that cash on these cool pieces. Among my favorites–this over-sized checked blazer, this bow-adorned mules, and these statement-making pants!

All right maybe I should’ve picked a more original piece, but we all know booties are the gift that keeps on giving every year. And each year, designers come up with more and more ways to outdo themselves. This year, I’m obsessed with booties with laser cut out details and embellishments like tassels and jewels.

At this point, you might be noticing a trend…I’m finding that the older I get, the more necessary I feel it is for me to invest in great quality pieces that fit like a dream. And I know many of you are thinking “OK, jeans are jeans are jeans…what’s the big deal?”. Well, honestly there isn’t much to be said other than the fact that every woman must go through their light bulb-above-the-head-angels-singing “AHA” moment before they finally realize how good it is to find a pair of jeans that are made exceptionally well, fit like they were made for you, and feel out of this world. As you could probably guess, I’ve recently experienced said moment and I swear God came down and winked at me while saying “told ya”.

The years of buying cheap jeans that “kinda” fit and faded, frayed quickly, and stretched out seemed all at once exhausting and completely unnecessary. As much as we hate to bite the bullet when paying forĀ good jeans, I’m here to tell you that it’s most definitely worth it. Take it from a 32 year old who spent 31 and a half years believing $15 jeans had to be the same thing. They’re not–and my shapely/lifted ass and I can attest to that fact. So do yourself a favor and at least try a pair on. I now know that there actually is a HUGE difference. Brand that are working for my pear shape? Good American, Joe’s Jeans, and Agolde.

Maybe it’s the chill in the air, the football games, and the fact that it’s Homecoming Week at my school that’s got me feeling all nostalgic, but I’m really into anything with a “varsity vibe” right now. From the classic jewel tones to the mixed media bombers, I want it all this fall.

I may have just been in recovery from a loafer binge. I have acquired so many pairs of loafers lately and never stopped to think that maybe that was an odd obsession. Either way, they never go out of style, are incredibly polished and professional, and now come in so many textures with so many embellishments that it’s only feeding into my habit. Oh well, can’t win ’em all!

 

Also, I wouldn’t be doing my due diligence if I didn’t share with you this out of control sale that’s going on on Shopbop.com right now…for two more days, you can get up to 25% off on your order (plus that free shipping if you’re an Amazon Prime member!). I just got two separate packages because I had to go back and buy more–that’s how nuts this is. And they just arrived today, so I’m going to go try them on–I’ll keep you guys posted!

Which trend are you thinking you’ll try? Let me know in the comments! And if you ever need help finding a piece, I’m more than happy to help–seriously I’m a weirdo and love doing it.
