Ok, let’s make it official: Fall has finally arrived. But is your wardrobe ready for a temperature drop? After we’ve already talked about the perfect winter wardrobe it’s now time to focus on our Fall closet essentials. So here’s an ultimate checklist to build the perfect Fall wardrobe:
COATS & JACKETS
Fall is all about layering (which I love, by the way), that’s why it all starts with the right jacket/coat. It can make or break an Outfit, so here are the absolute wardrobe staples that will help you through the next months:
A DENIM JACKET // Starting with the lightest of all Fall jackets, the Denim Jacket is a real must-have. It goes with jeans, leather skirts, slip dresses, jumpsuits – literally everything. Choose a mid-blue or light wash – they are the most versatile styles.
A TRENCH COAT // A super-light coat is great on a warm Fall day. Plus: You can still wear your favorite knits underneath
A BOMBER JACKET // Maybe it’s not for everybody, but there are so many great bomber jackets out there, that you should really go and have a try! Great for dressing down and for casual off-duty styles.
A LEATHER JACKET // An all-time classic that is worth the investment. A black biker jacket never goes out of style and should be found in every Fall wardrobe.
A CAMEL COAT // I love wearing Camel Coats in Fall – they are warm, chic and add a pop of color to the closet.
Trend Piece → Add a Brocade Blazer to your wardrobe and you’ll be up to date.
A SOFT WOOL SWEATER // Keeps you warm and cosy.
A LIGHTWEIGHT CARDIGAN // I’m obsessed with grey mohair cardigans, they are super soft and go with anything. Perfect for layering!
A STATEMENT SHIRT // Invest in an elevated shirt (knotted, cuffed, oversized), wear it with a bomber jacket and you’ve instantly created the look of the season.
A LONG SLEEVE TOP // A great Fall basic, especially when worn under a slip dress.
Trend Piece → Invest in an eye-catching knit.
MAXI SKIRTS // Wear it to the office with an exciting shirt or pair it with a Cardigan for a laid-back weekend combo.
KNIT DRESSES // Think about a weekends with friends. And hot chocoloate. And a good read. What would you like to wear? Right, a cosy knit dress.
SKINNY JEANS // No matter if it’s black, grey, raw or classic blue: The skinny jeans is a key element in every fall wardrobe.
BOYFRIEND JEANS // No shopping saturday without my fav knits and a pair of boyfriend jeans.
LEATHER PANTS // One of my favorite Fall staples is a pair of leather pants. It looks so good with a simple white T-shirt and a blazer or a chiffony blouse. Worth every penny.
LOAFERS & SLIPPERS // Loafer season isn’t over yet! These chic flats can easily be transformed from summer to fall territory. Simply wear them with fishnet stockings or colourful socks.
SNEAKERS // Nothing beats a pair of crisp white sneakers or classic chucks.
ANKLE BOOTS // Whether you’d like to go with classic black leather or daring Velvet, ankle boots are your best friends on a cold autumn day.
PLATFORM SANDALS // Add a little extra height with these feminine babes. Find a best-of here.
Trend Piece → Shoes of the moment are ballet flats, platform sandals and all things velvet. Choose whatever suits your personal taste.
Start investing in wintery Accessories like chunky Beanies and soft scarfs, before they are sold out. I’ve already got my hands on the cutest hat of the season, happily bought in NYC.
