Fall is officially here, and that means it’s time to do a closet refresh!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been eagerly awaiting this time of year, ready to swap out those summer shorts for stylish trousers and sandals for boots and loafers. 

Lately, I’ve been seeing so many new fall fashion trends on social media (and the streets), and it’s gotten me so excited for the season. With that being said, grab your favorite cozy fall drink, and let’s explore these top five fall staples you need to add to your closet ASAP! 

Long Denim Skirts – the perfect transitional piece for your wardrobe.

Want to look like the new fall IT girl? Wear a long denim skirt. It’s the newest fall fashion trend, and I am all here for it. You can style this with any simple shirt, like a white baby tee, and I promise it will dress up your look so much. It’s also the perfect transitional piece you can wear for almost every season. It has great coverage, which helps when the weather gets cooler, and the slits also make it suitable for warmer weather. This skirt, linked from Zara, is just under $50!

Trousers – A true wardrobe essential.

You can truly never go wrong with a good pair of trousers. They are elegant enough to dress up but could easily be styled down with a T-shirt and a pair of sneakers. I love this style from Princess Polly because they are so high quality, chic and offer a large variety of colors to choose from.

Adidas Gazelle Sneakers – A staple fall sneaker.

I see a pair of Gazelle sneakers on someone’s feet just about every time I go on social media. These are the perfect fall staple sneakers; you can wear them with any outfit! You could even pair them with jeans, a skirt or trousers! These are truly the ultimate everyday shoes.

Loafers – A fall fashion favorite.

Let’s be real, loafers will always be in style because you just can’t beat a good loafer. They are preppy and definitely a classic when it comes to fall fashion. I love these Sam Edelman loafers because they are chunky with a comfortable platform and have a wide, roomy shape. 

Style Tip: To elevate your look, pair loafers with a blazer and cropped trousers or jeans for a modern twist.

Oversized Blazer – No, Blazers aren’t just for business.

Recently, oversized clothing has made its way back into the fashion trends. Oversized blazers give off a chic and relaxed look that can be dressed up or down; it’s the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. Also, you don’t need to splurge to get in on the oversized blazer trend. There are so many good and affordable options, such as this one from Revolve currently on sale for under $30.
