Ah Fall... The season for colorful leaves, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, and duh, fall FASHION! TBH, I'm not a BIG fan of any weather below 70 degrees, but since I live in Chicago, a fashionistas gotta do what I fashionistas gotta do. These days I'm saving my coins for travel and savings so I decided to purchase the bare minimum for this beautiful, but brief time of the year. Here's my 5 things you need in your closet for fall.
1. Over The Knee Boots
Paired with jeans or a fit and flare dress or skirt. OTK boots elevate any look. Bonus points if it has a cute heel or detail. My corset boots are from Forever 21.
2. Deep Toned Lipstick
Who doesn't love to rich colors of fall? From Nutmeg to Pumpkin to Vintage 90s Plums and Raisin tones, both my tummy and my makeup inspired by the autumn hues. I'm wearing Maybelline's Super Stay Matte Ink in the color Protector.
3. A Cozy Cardi
The chill is REAL! Bundle up beautifully. My cardigan of choice was a $20 open sweater from Forever 21 in this super fall pumpkin color. I wrapped it slightly and added a belt from some old leather shorts that I can no longer fit. #Recycle
4. Dress to Impress
Just because it is cold doesn't mean the dresses get packed away. Hello, tights and previously mentioned OTK boots! Stay warm in style! I never buy anything unless I can't instantly think of at least 3 different ways to wear it. Jackets, and other layering pieces allow for customization of simple styles like this mustard wrap dress. (Also purchased at F21)
5. A Felt Hat
Aside from keeping your head warm, a hat is an outfit game changer. You can match it to your outfit like I did or use it as a way to add a pop of color! My hat is from Forever 21 - SHOCKER!
