Now that fall is right around the corner, the kids back-to-school clothing is purchased and the kids are back in school, it’s time to think about your own fall and winter wardrobe. This year, there are three things you absolutely must have in your closet. These items will take you to the pumpkin patch, to Starbucks for the much-anticipated return of the pumpkin spice latte and shopping for holiday gifts to boot. Get your pen and paper (or iPad for today’s note takers) ready to make a shopping list.
A Structured Bag
The first item you need on your fall wardrobe list is a structured bag. This bag needs to be big and it needs to be gorgeous. To make it even more amazing, go for a structured bag in a shade of camel. You can choose whatever you want, but try to avoid shoulder straps and anything too small. The idea is oversize and seriously professional. The Michael Kors Hamilton is a great and exceptionally affordable bag this fall.
Nothing screams fall as much as a great pair of riding boots in a shade of cognac. This whiskey color is perfect for the season because it’s such a gorgeous shade of neutral. Prepare to wear these boots with everything from girly dresses and cardigans to leggings to skinny jeans and big sweaters. They’re your go-to shoes this season.
This season is all about the bigger the better. You want big bags, big boots and big sweaters. The trick here is to pair lovely, feminine sweaters in an oversize look with fitted pants. You can go with jeggings, leggings or skinny jeans. Don’t go with baggy pants and an oversize sweater. The only look you’ll achieve with that is messy and frumpy. You don’t want that when there is so much greatness in fashion this season.
