In case you weren't aware, fall is my favorite season. The chill in the air, colorful leaves, abundance of pumpkin-flavored snacks, and cozy atmosphere all combine to make the perfect season. I also just adore the slow pace that seems to come along with autumn, as I am a big advocate for lazy nights in, curled up with a fuzzy blanket, a good book, and a cup of hot chocolate or tea.
While I am utterly obsessed with the classic fall outfits consisting of a brown, cream, and black color palette, my style does gravitate more towards bright colors. I think it's important to note here that there is no one "right way" to dress for fall; you don't need to adopt a dark academia style to be fashionable this season.
Below is a breakdown of the styles and elements I wish to bring to my wardrobe this fall.
For some reason I am currently obsessed with plaid. I own a few plaid skirts and dresses that I cannot wait to style this season. I am also currently obsessed with looks that involve layering multiple plaid items together- think a plaid skirt paired with a plaid scarf. Plaid also pairs well with denim, so don't be surprised if my go-to outfit this season is a plaid skirt and oversized jean jacket.
PATTERN CLASHING AND LAYERING
I also really want to step out of my comfort zone this season and create more exciting and "out there" outfits. One way I plan to make my looks more dynamic is to experiment with pattern clashing and layering. I have always been an admirer of maximalism, yet my wardrobe does not reflect that. This fall I plan to layer skirts atop jeans, pair houndstooth with plaid, throw hoodies over textured skirts, and really have fun with my outfits.
Like I said, you don't have to fit yourself into a stereotypical "fall fashion" box when it comes to creating fall outfits. While I do love wearing the occasional grey sweater, black miniskirt, tights, and black boots combo, this season I won't be afraid to wear color. I especially love red for autumn, but pinks, greens, and blues will no doubt be making appearances in my outfits as well. As the days grow colder, I will also create some fun looks with my bright pink beanie.
Something else you may or may not know about me is I love live music. I've attended over 20 concerts and music festivals this year alone and I often buy merch when I see my favorite artists perform. Some people collect postcards when they travel, others buy magnets for their fridge. My collection of choice is band tees. I'd say 4-5 days out of the week I'm sporting some sort of band/artist merchandise, so naturally my fall wardrobe will include these unique clothing items. I am very excited to break out my favorite concert sweatshirts, which include my girl in red hoodie and oversized Lady Gaga hoodie.
