5 Key Pieces You Need in Your Fall Wardrobe
Before you start building your Fall wardrobe , make sure you have these 5 key pieces that are up to date with the latest trends for this season.
1. Emerald Green Anything
Mint was big this Spring but for Fall, the emerald green color trend gives a nice warm look to a drab color like dark green. Emerald green is great for blazers as it can add a pop of cover to a plain white blouse and black slacks.
2. Thigh High Boots
The runways are full of thigh highs…boots that is! They look great over jeans but also give a polished yet edgy look to a skirt/sweater dress with the right shade of tights underneath.
For your first pair, stick to black or neutral so you can get the most wear out of them with a wider variety of outfits from your closet.
3. A Winter White Sweater
Of course white is okay after Labor Day, and a winter white sweater will give a nice bright look for the dark evenings soon to come. The great thing about this trend is that you can find winter white pieces for your wardrobe at any price and a head to toe winter white look (sweater dress or plain dress) is a beautiful look that fits the trend.
4. A Coat with a Classic Pattern
When it comes to picking out the right coat this season choose one in a classic pattern such as hounds tooth, leopard, or plaid. It’s a great way to look stylish when you are out somewhere in weather that requires a coat, even when you want to show off your outfit underneath!
5. A few Gray tops!
Yes gray is very much in this year and if you have any gray items in your closet, WEAR THEM NOW!! Gray is perfect for a sleek stylish look in the evening, whether it’s a form fitting gray blouse with dark wash skinny jeans and black boots, or even a gray sweater dress.
