Fall is my favorite season. The air is crisp, the leaves start to turn a fiery red, and the sun starts to fade half past 6 p.m. No heavy snow coats necessary just yet; it’s all about chunky sweaters, knee-high boots, light coats, blanket scarves, and layers. Here are the new items I’d like to integrate into my wardrobe now.
You can throw this piece over everything. Burberry makes a killer blanket scarf, but Wilfred at Aritzia has a variety of colors, and they’re thick, warm, and soft!
Wilfred Diamond Mosaic Blanket Scarf ($85)
Patent Leather Ankle Boots
Although the F/W 15 Dior patent leather boots are my favorite, the price is a bit steep. There are other brands that make similar styles. Pair them with a floral-print minidress and finish the look with a sweater or duster coat. You can also rock them with culottes, a turtleneck, and a leather jacket. It’s nice to show off the shoes, so make sure any bottoms hit above the knee (or just below).
Jeffrey Campbell Truly Patent Leather Booties ($180)
This layering piece is great under coats or worn over a turtleneck. A faux option is affordable and equally stylish. Cinch it with a men’s belt to create a flattering shape.
Forever 21 Faux Shearling Vest ($45)
Purchase a menswear-inspired belt in a size medium or large. The extra slack allows you to do an interesting tie. This simple accessory can be worn over bulkier items—like vests, sweaters, cardigans, and coats—to create a flattering waist.
River Island Suede Belt ($33)
Bohemian Floral-Print Dress
This style is great for all seasons! I recommend looking for higher-quality fabrics because silk chiffon travels better and wrinkles less than rayon.
Étoile Isabel Marant Sukey Slavic Flowers Dress ($405)
I love to style these edgy pants with a silk-chiffon blouse layered under a sherpa vest and a light coat slung over my shoulders.
Paige Denim Verdugo Leather Pants ($895)
Lace-Up Knee-High Boots
These boots are super flattering with a miniskirt or tuxedo dress. To combat the cold, layer with a sweater and duster coat.
Schutz Karlyanna Leather Heels ($395)
It’s a great jacket that will last you a lifetime. Opt for a style with a removable fur collar you can add or take off depending on how cold it is outside.
The Arrivals Rainier Leather Moto Jacket ($685)
Wide-Leg Wool Trousers
Remember it’s all about proportions. Wide-leg trousers pair perfectly with a tucked-in silk top and a long, belted sleeveless vest. Finish the look with ankle boots or lace-up heels showing a sliver of skin.
Leur Logette Wide Pants With Center Pleats ($520)
