10 Fall Essentials for your Wardrobe

Today I’m talking about Fall essentials. These are the 10 pieces I wear year after year during Fall and what I get the most use out of in my wardrobe each season. Some of these fall basics I’ve had in my wardrobe for years, while others I repurchase year after year. Let’s dive in!

10 Fall essentials

ankle booties

My most worn shoe is a comfortable, low blocked heel ankle bootie. My favorite heel height is between 2-3 inches. Any lower and it makes your foot look bigger, and any taller it’s more difficult to walk in. Here are some of my favorites!

 

a pop of leopard

Leopard is always a go to print for me in the Fall. I like just small touches of it in my outfits, whether that’s a belt, my shoes, or a scarf.

 

scarves

I wear lightweight scarves year round but especially in the beginning of Fall. As the temperatures cool down I add in thicker scarves for extra warmth. Blanket scarves can double as a poncho in your wardrobe. Let me know if you want to see a video on how I style scarves!

 

suede or leather handbag

I like switching to heavier materials like suede or leather once the temperature cools down. I wear more browns than blacks, so I reach for a brown leather handbag most often.

 

a wool or felt hat

I’m really picky when it comes to hats. I don’t want to feel like a cowboy wearing it and I don’t want it to flop down too much. I think I found the perfect hat, but here are some other options that would be worth a try. Check out this post to see how I styled the hat I mentioned in the video.

 

soft cardigan

During Fall my go-to layer is cardigans. I don’t wear sweaters very much until Winter, and even then I still wear more cardigans than sweaters. Mostly because I worry about getting too warm in sweaters and I like having the option to take off a cardigan if I need to. Funny enough, I’m usually always cold, but it’s still a mental thing! I would recommend getting a black, camel, and gray cardigan for your Fall wardrobe.

 

long sleeve basics

Use these to layer under cardigans and ponchos. Let a little bit of the sleeve pop out from under for a layered look. I recommend picking up a white, black and striped basic.

 

jeggings or leggings

I love jeans, but when it comes to Fall essentials my most worn pants during Fall are jeggings or leggings. I prefer tighter pants because it looks better with boots and booties. My favorite pair of jeggings are from Old Navy. SIze down if you want them to really suck you in and get your normal size if you want a comfier fit. My favorite leggings worth the splurge is Lululemon Align leggings. The one pair I have is the one I always reach for because they feel like second skin and I never have to adjust them.

 

cargo vest or jacket

I’ve had my green olive vest for 5 years and it’s still going strong in my Fall wardrobe. This year I picked up a blush jacket version to throw on for errands and casual looks

 

cozy layering pieces

Adding layers is a must for Fall. You can take them off during the day when it’s warmer and throw them on in the mornings and evenings when it cools off. My favorite layering pieces are ponchos and puffer vests. I get more wear out of puffer vests because I can wear them to work, so if you’re torn between one or the other I would go with a vest. I recommend sizing down to let more of your top underneath show. Don’t worry about zipping it up unless that’s how you prefer to wear it. I’ve talked about this wrap a few times, I’m clearly obsessed! It feels like a blanket but still hangs very nice. Here are some of my favorite ponchos and vests.

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.

  • I see you Friday 🙌🏼 This post is going up a little late because I lost track of time de stressing in a hot bubble bath 💆🏼‍♀️ Y’all may have noticed on IG stories today took it out of me. Anyone else a fan of taking baths?? This wrap sweater was featured in my Abercrombie try on haul (swipe up in my try on highlight to see all my styled looks). If you buy anything from the haul I recommend the lace cami because you will wear it under everything!

  • Not sure about the pajama trend? This blouse is an easy way to pull it off. Not to mention, it feels like my pillow case and I’m all about that 🙌🏼 This look would be perfect for date night and I’ve been loving this rust color paired with the unexpected blush. But let’s be real, y’all know I’ll pair anything with blush. 💕 This look is from my recent @abercrombie try on haul. Swipe up in stories to watch if you missed it!
