It’s the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice. There is a chill in the air and summer fashions now have to retire to the back of our closets.
To dress for fall, one must have these essential items. Of course, the first essential is flannel. There is no such thing as too much flannel for fall. You don’t always need to button the flannel up; wearing the shirt open can leave a fun variety of shirts to layer underneath.
There are so many sweaters in the world, and the more the merrier. To easily make it seem like you put some good thought into an outfit, put on a nice sweater and a good pair of jeans. You will look fall-tastic.
Do not be shy of putting a cardigan on. Rarely do I see many people wearing cardigans for fall, but I feel like they are perfect for it. Taylor Swift didn’t write a song called “Cardigan” for nothing, get yourself one now.
If you are dressing in your fall best, it has to be in warm, earthy tones. Orange, yellow, red, and brown, all scream fall. While lavender is gorgeous, it doesn’t really say autumn.
Of course, you can switch it up occasionally to add more spice into your pumpkin spice life, but sticking to these colors is a must.
It’s time to be controversial, but it must be said. Please, no more scarves. They had their moment in 2013, but it’s 2021 and time for them to go. A decorative scarf makes it look like you have no neck, and that’s not a good look.
Boots are essential to have during fall, but it’s time to retire the knee-high brown leather boots. Please get rid of them. They had their moment, just like scarves. But just like scarves, their moment has passed. I suggest you get a pair of Doc Martens instead.
If you want to spice up your makeup, add warm tones to the eyes to make them pop. Bring blush back by wearing a nice warm blush to really complete the look. A darker lip also can help show your style.
Most importantly, the best accessory to have this fall is a mask. COVID-19 is still very much here, and with the colder seasons approaching, it’s important to continue to wear your mask no matter what. There are fun fall designs that you can find at almost any store, so make sure to get some.
With fall fashion, just have fun. You can take any of my opinions and use them, or completely ignore them and make fall fashion your own. As long as you are cozy and comfortable this fall, that’s all that matters.
