Fashion Friday: Fall Wardrobe Essentials

by Courtney on October 1, 2010

:) Happy Fashion Friday!! :)

This weekend marks the official time when I will pack up the ‘ol summer clothes and put ‘em into storage. It’s time to really embrace the season…

It’s FALL baby! :-D

I love fall for so many reasons: oodles of delicious pumpkin recipes, pumpkin coffee & lattes, candy corn, and pretty decorations. But I also really love fall for the fun wardrobe that comes with it!

Since I’ve already done a few Fashion Friday posts on my favorite summer wardrobe essentials, I figured why not share some of my favorite Fall Wardrobe Essentials! They may not all be the most “fashion forward” but I still love them just the same. ;)

1. UGG Boots

If you read my post a couple weeks ago on my UGG boots, you already know just how deep my love runs for these plush, cozy pillows of sheepskin on my tootsies. I’ll wear them with anything. They are amazing…I don’t care if they’re UGGly. ;)

2. North Face Fleece

Yes, I’m well aware that everyone + their grandma seems to own one of these by now. And yes, I feel a little awkward when swarms of teeny boppers walk past me in the mall all wearing theirs (with their UGG boots on too no less!). But this jacket is so comfy and warm! It’s perfect for weekends, quick errands, or even the days where I’m running late for work and it’s hanging there, just waiting to be thrown on. It’s definitely a keeper in my book.

3. Scarves

Even though I’m a huge fan of scarves all year-round, fall is the perfect time to wear this versatile accessory. Thinner fabric, fashion scarves are great for dressing up a simple top, while bulky outdoor scarves are just plain fun and pretty to wear with your favorite fall jacket.

4. White long-sleeve T’s

I LOVE to layer in the fall, whether it be with cardigan sweaters, scarves, fun necklaces, or even hoodies, so I always make sure to stock up on some extra long-sleeve white t-shirts every season. They’re just so incredibly easy to work into an outfit!

5. Black Blazer

This is a NEW addition to my fall wardrobe this year, but I couldn’t be more excited about it. Dressed down with a nice pair of jeans, some ankle boots, and a couple simple accessories, this is going to make for a great weekend outfit!

Now it’s YOUR turn!…

Tell me: What are YOUR fall wardrobe essentials??? :)

You pretty much cover it with the 5 listed- however for this season I think skinny jeans/cords may also make the list!

I totally want to go buy long-sleeved white shirts now! Except… it’s still hovering in the 90s here in SoCal! Your picture of fall leaves made me wildly jealous.

UGGs are really comfty. I have a brown pair also as a Chritsmas gift.. Before I got them, I went to Costco last year to get a black pair (Costco brand) and they are just as comfty for $30!!!

Okay, I recommend

1) Boot cut jeans (I trust Levi’s)

2) basic black and brown flats. They go well with anything.

3) Purple Cardigan

4) Basic long sleeve shirts and spaghetti strap shirts for underneath.

5) Depending on how cold it gets in your area, a black scarf works well. Again, it goes well with most outfits.

I am a college student and follow a tight budget, so some of the items that I’ve listed can already be in your closet or you can go to F21/TJMaxx and find some of things items for under $10.

I have Uggs and a white North Face. Yes, I feel like a teeny bopper too but LOVE them. I guess I’ve owned them since my teeny bopper days and just don’t wanna replace them!


11 Michelle October 1, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Jeans, sweaters/sweatshirt, and my puffy North Face vest!

My Favs-
Grey Knee High Leather boots
Quilted Vests with fringe on the hood
Henleys for layering
Knee high argyle socks
Mittens or cut off gloves

I finallly moved to a state with fall, I moved from AZ to Colorado this summer. So my must haves are boots in every color with a flat heel, skinny jeans, scarves, and sweaters of all colors.

Yes! Boots (several pairs with flat heels) and skinny jeans are the new things I’ve bought since moving someplace so cold!
I also love scarves and I can’t imagine not having a basic black blazer in my closet. Long sleeve T-shirts are EXCELLENT and you can layer so much! I’m getting into tunics, as well – they’re great with leggings/jeggings and boots!
One thing I’ve found in Germany that I never knew existed is what they call strumpfhosen here. They are like pantyhose but they are like knit socks. They make them for kids and women! They are most excellent under skirts and under your jeans (for extra warmth!)
Thanks for sharing your list…what a great way to get the shopping juices flowing, right? ;)

I’ve never heard of those before! They sound pretty interesting!
