My Fall Fashion Essentials

Layering is one of my favorite things about fall. It makes getting dressed more fun and your outfit more interesting. And you get to pull pieces from your wardrobe that were hiding all summer...sounds like a win/win to me. I recently swapped my summer clothes out for my sweaters, long sleeves, and turtlenecks (the winter coats and scarves are still in storage though!) Today I'm sharing 4 of my top fashion essentials for fall/autumn that can be summed up in this outfit. These are all basic pieces that can be worn in so many different ways, making them wardrobe essentials in general. I've also posted some similar pieces at the end of this post so you can shop the look!

Everyone needs this staple in their wardrobe. They add a cool effortless vibe to any outfit and are great to layer over sweaters when it gets chillier. I've been on a mission to purchase a new one since this one here is from my mom and I've had for years (not the best quality). All the ones I loved that I found in stores were not my size so I'll be ordering one online soon (see some of my favorites down below!) Definitely size up if you want to layer it over a sweater.

Sweater weather is the epitome of fall fashion. I can never pass up a good chunky knit and oversized are definitely my favorite. Being so versatile, you can layer them over or under, tuck them into your pants, or wear them with leggings for a casual off-duty vibe. This one from Zaful is super comfy and easy to wear which means I'll be wearing it a lot into spring time. Gimme one in every color.

BLACK JEANS (holes optional)
I love the fact that I can wear pants again after the summer heat, and black denim is always a go-to for me since they work in all settings. I can wear them to work as well on the weekends--they go with anything too! I also love a good ripped knee to add some edge and dimension to my outfits.

I'm obsessed with ankle boots in the fall time because they're easy to slide on, comfortable, and stylish. There are so many different styles to choose from everyone is bound to find a pair that suits them. I'm lusting after another pair of black ones, but with a pointy toe since the ones pictured here are more rounded. BTW Urban Outfitters is currently having a 20% off all boots sale!

It's not fall without a good beverage to keep you warm and to be a prop in your next Instagram post. The soy mocha latte from Starbucks has been my favorite drink at the moment and last winter it was the white mocha. Of course I'll be brewing at my apartment as well, anyone have any good coffee recommendations? I also love a good hot chocolate or hot tea!
