Now that fall has officially made it’s way to North Carolina (with an exception of this week since it’s been 90 degrees & humid) I have begun to break out some new and old seasonal fashion favorites. Fall is the time for jewel tones, cozy fabrics, and lots of layering, and as you all know by now I am SO ready for it! This year I’ve taken to several new fall trends and can’t wait to incorporate them into everyday looks as well as fun blog posts for you guys!
I have to start with my favorite piece of all-my suede moto jacket. I snagged this beauty during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and knew I have to make it mine after a friend raved about the one she got last year. Guys. Somehow this jacket is even more beautiful in person. The spice colored suede is so incredibly smooth and the rich color pops against the dark matte hardware. It fits impeccably and I’m already dreaming up outfits with it layered over turtlenecks, graphic tees, and chunky knits for fall/winter.
A trend that seems to have blown up this fall are chenille sweaters, and I’m definitely not mad about it. These sweaters honestly feel like you’re wrapped up in a blanket of coziness all while you’re looking seasonably chic. I personally prefer the chenille knits with a bit of a sheen to them, but all styles are equally amazing. The mustard sweater is one from aerie I got early in the season because I knew these would be a hit. I ended up getting it in cream too and it has a bit of tinsel running through it too! These sweaters have a boxy fit and are slightly cropped, but I went with a medium so it would be nice and oversized (plus I have insanely long arms). These sweaters are still on their site and are marked down too-I highly recommend!
One trend I kept seeing all over New York and Paris fashion week this past September was fiddler/baker boy/newsboy caps. These popular hats seem to have several names but no matter what you call ’em they’re seriously cute for fall! This is definitely a love/hate trend, but after being inspired by bloggers and Pinterest I wanted to give it a shot. This fiddler cap was an absolute barganza at Target and was a great way for me to try the trend without spending an insane amount on a hat.
As you may have seen in my last blog post I have taken to a new denim trend-cropped kick flares. These are perfect to pair with ankle boots or tennis shoes and add a bit of a ’60s/’70s flare to every outfit. Again, these are from Just Black Denim and fit like a dream! The button front closure adds a nice touch as well as the scalloped frayed hem. Love, love these!
Corduroy and suede mini skirts have been big for the last several fall/winter seasons, but this year I finally decided to get on board. The black zip front skirt shown above is one I made from a purchased sewing pattern and ended up tweaking along the way so that it was perfect for me. The ring zipper pull adds a retro feel and the black corduroy is insanely soft and stretchy. I can’t wait to style this with cropped sweaters and graphic tees along with over the knee boots!
Lastly is an oldie but a goodie-Vans sneakers. I’ve always been a fan of Vans (and rhyming, apparently) and have gone through several pairs in my lifetime, however, I have never owned any of the Old Skool styles! After seeing so many of my favorite bloggers with these I knew I had to have them too (I’m very impulsive, could you tell?). These are super comfy and add a bit of a boho/retro feel to even the most polished outfits.
If this post hasn’t made you want a hot cup of apple cider and a slice of pumpkin bread I don’t know what will. You will definitely be seeing more of these pieces over the next few months! What are some of your go-to fall pieces?
Happy Fall, y’all!
