fall preparation guide.

































Fall is coming up so fast, and I couldn’t be more excited! Fall fashion is by far my favorite (layers, layers, and more layers)! Sometimes it gets overwhelming with all the different options, but have no fears… I have teamed up with a good friend and fellow blogger (Haleigh from Sincerely, Hales) to bring you a list of all the Fall necessities you need in your wardrobe!
TOPS-Flannels: Flannels are probably one of the most versatile pieces of clothing… seriously! You can use them to layer, tie them around your waist, and they can be worn during all seasons!-Cable Knit Sweaters: Who doesn’t love being all cozied up in a sweater when the weather starts getting colder? I love all the different color sweaters that come out as it starts getting colder so you can add pops of color to your outfits!-Silk Tops: I love silk tops during Fall/Winter. You can dress them up by pairing with a nice skirt, or you can throw on a pair of jeans for a more casual look.-Cardigans: Any and all cardigans are a MUST for Fall/Winter. They are perfect for layering.
JACKETS-Leather Jacket: I would highly recommend splurging on a nice leather jacket! They are so worth it any I promise if you get a nice one, it will last you forever. I will also link some inexpensive ones too if you’d rather save! -Fur Coat: I love love love fur coats. Whether they are animal print, or just solid colors, they add a funky touch to any outfit.
-Suede Jacket: Along with a leather jacket, suede jackets are really nice too! At first I thought they would be hard to pull off, but if you get a nice one and it doesn’t look cheap you will feel so much more confident. Suede with fringe tassels is a must! 
BOTTOMS:
-Bell Bottoms: 
I have been dying over bell bottoms lately. I used to hate them, but now I love them! You DEFINITELY without a doubt need to have a pair for this Fall/Winter!
-Skinnies: Finding the perfect pair of skinnies is so important. Plain denim skinnies can be worn with basically anything. I have found that my favorite skinnies are all bought from Nordstrom. They have a huge selection!
-Black or White jeans: Distressed black and white jeans are adorable! I usually wear blue jeans, but sometimes wearing black or white jeans is a nice change. If you get them, I would recommend getting a distressed pair!
-Midi Skirts: Midi skirts are perfect for Fall/Winter. I love how they come in so many different patterns and you can do so much wit
h them.
SHOES:-Booties: There’s a variety of booties to choose from. Make sure to get your hands on a pair of black leather ones!
-Flats: Flats are a staple in your wardrobe for any season. See my favorites linked below
-Boots: I recently invested in some over-the-knee suede boots and they are AMAZING! They are going to be on repeat! You also need to get a pair of warm fuzzy boots for the leggings and sweatshirt days!
-Tennies: I love wearing tennies, jeans, and sweatshirts during Fall and Winter while running errands. Wear tennies during the day, and switch them out for some super cute booties or flats for date night!
ACCESSORIES:
-Large Tote: 
Totally crushing on totes lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love clutches, but I would SO much rather have a big tote bag to throw things in. If you want to invest in a nice tote, I would suggest the Goyard totes (not sold online) or a Louis Vuitton Tote. They won’t disappoint!
-Cross Body: Large and small cross bodies are so nice to have. My favorite cross body bags are found at Chloe.
-Clutch: I’m very picky about clutches because I hate when I feel like I can barely fit anything in there! BUT, you definitely need one for your night out this Fall! I recently got a Clare V foldover clutch, and I was so impressed.
-Hats: Floppy hats are one of my favorite accessories for Fall. They add so much more to an outfit and usually are pretty inexpensive!
-Watches: You NEED a nice gold or rose gold watch. Seriously… go get one!
-Plaid Scarf: Blanket scarves are soooooo cute. I got a few different ones last year, and I love them. I love that you can wear them as a scarf, but they are also big enough to actually open up and cover up with when it gets colder.
-Headbands: As you all know, I love to braid my hair… especially when the weather starts to get a little more harsh! Adding a cute little headband makes a braid look a little more elegant!
MAKEUP:
-Smokey Eye Palette:
 Urban Decay just released a new Smokey Eye palette and it is one of the best I have ever used! Smokey eyes are perfect for any Fall outfit!
-Bronzer: Anybody else get super pasty looking in Fall/Winter? Yeah, I do. For the most part, the majority of my skin is covered during Fall, but adding a little bronzer to your face will give you a perfect glow!
-Red Lipstick: This is another one that goes without saying. If you don’t have a red lipstick that is your go to during Fall, go get it!
-Self Tanner: As I mentioned above, I usually don’t show much skin during Fall/Winter, but I love to keep tan for when I wear skirts. Self tanners are risky business, but (after many orange and blotchy skin tans) I have found the fool-proof self tanner! Kate Somerville Tanning Towelettes will keep your skin glowing all Fall and Winter!
Well there you have it! If you have read this far, you now know all the staple pieces for your Fall and Winter wardrobe! For more pictures head to Sincerely Hales!
