During the fall season, there comes a time in the middle of it where you have two glorious and beautiful weeks. These weeks have the best weather which gives you the chance to drink a nice iced coffee or a warm latte, whichever your preference. This is the time where you can get away with strolling around a park near because the weather is perfect and the trees look breathtaking. This is the time where you can uncover your new fall wardrobe and wear you beautiful clothes before the cold winter.
There are several clothing items that should be a staple in your fall wardrobe.
- Open-toe booties
This shoe is like a hybrid between a sandal and a boot. During summer, we enjoy our sandals and during, boots and socks are the staples. This season is the best time to way open-toe booties because the weather is not cold and it’s not hot. This weather is like something out of any dream, it is just perfect.
- Leather skirt or shorts
The leather is a timeless fashion classic and it always looks good. A leather short or skirt is for those days you do not want to wear girly floral stuff. Since it is not quite cold enough for leather pants, a short or skirt is the best alternative. However, if the weather if the weather is even a degree more than seventy-five degrees, you will end up sweating all over your waistband.
- Light scarves
These scarves are not as warm as their counterparts, the heavy scarves, but they do provide some sort of warmth without the bulk of a heavy scarf. During chilly nights, you can wear a light scarf made with a variety of beautiful fabrics that can match your outfit. Also, during the day these scarves can act as an accessory.
- Cropped sweaters
We all love crop tops and their versatile functions. This clothing item can be worn during fall and you can easily make it out of your old sweater. Just add some interesting cuts to make your sweater crop top look cute and you can pair it with your nice pair of jeans.
- Leggings being worn as pants
Wearing leggings as pants is a controversial topic among most people but it's all about preference. When the weather is a bit chilly but not as cold as winter, you can wear your leggings as pants. This clothing item works well if you want to wear your sporty wear as your outerwear. This is also a good fashion choice instead of unearthing the winter pants that you may have to wear during the next few months of winter.
- Suede shoes
These shoes are too hot to wear during summer and they are too high maintenance during winter. The best time to wear them is during fall especially if they are real suede. Real suede shoes have to be spray-protected and this is the main reason why they can’t be worn during winter. Wear your suede shoes during fall because they are stylish and you do not have to worry about them getting ruined because of snow puddles.
- Trench coats
These coats are amazing. You do not have to carry an umbrella that never matches your outfit, instead look stylish and trendy in a trench coat. They come in a variety of designs and they work with all body types.
- Denim jacket
Most people know of the fall season as the denim jacket weather. If you want to add some character to your outfit, try incorporating a denim jacket. This material is not heavy and it looks beautiful with many outfits.
With fall, you are not really sure if the weather is going to be as perfect as you would like. Since it is a transitional weather, layering your outfits is the smart way to put on your outfit of the day. If you want to wear a linen jumpsuit, slip a turtleneck sweater underneath it and you will not have to wear a jacket when you are going out.

Beige is a timeless color when it comes to the fall palette. This fall season, beige was incorporated in long, belted capes, classic peacoats which were worn with oversized scarves and embroidered coats.
White is a nice fall color especially if you want that monochrome look. It still looks stunning even though it’s impractical, in fall as well as winter.

In a previous interview, Victoria Beckham claimed to have created the biggest she had ever designed for her fall collection. Many designers have embraced this accessory because they look cool and can carry everything you may need when you go out. The bigger bags should be left for the weekends.

When you do not want to carry a big handbag, get a bright bag that is smaller for your day to day activities for this fall. Since most fall colors are dark, these bright and bold handbags will compliment your outfit.
There is nothing as beautiful as an accessory designed in the leaf motif as a fall fashion item. Leaves can not only be incorporated in textiles, but they can be designed in earrings, brooches, and necklaces. This trend is a favorite for many of us. The creations found in the market at the moment are really stunning.
- Chandelier earrings
We all need a bit of bling in our wardrobe. Oversized chandelier earrings were a staple in most fall fashion shows. They can be paired with dresses in the fall colors with no necklace because they stand out all on their own.
Scarves can be an inspiration for a flowing dress and this is why it’s a great accessory. It can be worn around the neck, as straps on bags, unconventionally as a way to tie shoes and as a belt.
- Colorful gloves
Gloves can be seen as an old trend. Many designers have embraced this accessory by customizing them in cool designs and some are even fingerless for the selfie lovers.

Cuffs are a sculptural and very striking accessory and they can be worn just as they are in order to make a statement. This fall season, many designers have used chunky bangles in order to make big statements.
