Ahhhh, Fall. It’s the time of year where the leaves start to turn a beautiful orange-brown, it’s the time of year where it’s totally acceptable to drink your bodyweight in Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and it’s the time of year that you really get to rethink your closet. After all, it’s time to pack away the strappy shirts and the sandals, and instead put your layering to the test. However, if you don’t quite know where to start with your fall fashion antics, this is how to make a fall fashion starter kit.
The black boots
Black has always been a safe color in the world of fashion, and black boots are the ultimate addition to any fall closet. These can be dressed up or dressed down, and they look awesome when you’re taking a photo of your boots and the leaves for the ‘Gram. Trust us. Although they may look simple, black boots really do come in countless shapes and sizes. From round to pointed toes, to chunky heels or flats, you can also choose from plain boots or embellished boots. Those decisions are completely down to you.
The chunky sweater
Come on; you know the drill. As soon as the leaves start to turn brown, you just have to whip your chunky knits out of your closet. It’s basically the law. Chunky sweaters will never go out of fashion, and they really do go with anything. Thanks to this year’s love of mixing prints, you really can go all out when it comes to your sweater choices. You can choose patterns, you can choose block colors, you can choose animal print, or you could just go for a classic knit. The sweater world really is your oyster, and you don’t have to worry about anything clashing. You’ll be too cozy to care about that.
After all, who doesn’t want to embody Cher Horowitz from Clueless? Because we certainly do. Blazers are all the rage this year, and they are perfect for your fall closet. Not only are they insanely fashionable and match up with literally any shirt or tee in your repertoire, but they are also pretty darn practical. Fall is that awkward time of year where it’s not too hot, but it’s not too cold, which is why your epic blazer will keep you just right throughout the day. You really need a blazer (or ten) in your life.
The silk skirt
You might be wondering how a silk skirt fits into a fall starter kit, but it may be one of the most important items you add to your closet this year. These skirts can be teamed up with all of the blazers, boots, shirts, and sweaters that you have in your closet, and they can be a welcome release from wearing pants or jeans. From patterns to block colors, you should probably add a few to your collection.
As the weather starts to turn, you need to make a start on your fall closet. Luckily, all you need is this fall fashion starter kit in your life.
