I Can't Stop Wearing These 5 Fall Must-Haves Over & Over

Fall is finally in full swing, which means that my closet is pretty much thriving. For me, fall is where I can really let my outfits shine. In the summer I’m trying to wear as little as possible, and in the winter I’m always too bundled up.

Now is that ~sweet spot~ where stepping out in jeans and a sweater is totally acceptable for the weather and it lets everyone catch a glimpse at what you’re rocking this season. These are 5 pieces that I have found myself going back to again and again this season whether it’s to make a statement or just for everyday wear.

  1. 1. Boot-cut jeans

    These are definitely a trend that I’m new to, but am totally on board with for the fall. TBH, I always thought only my mom could pull them off, but after buying a pair, I understand the hype. Boot-cut jeans add a little kick to an outfit without being wild flares. You can pair them with a tight long sleeve shirt or tuck in your favorite sweater for that extra fall vibe.

  2. 2. Maxi dress

    Having at least one maxi dress in your closet is a must for this season. They used to remind me of summer and being on the beach, but now there are so many different styles and patterns that make them the perfect statement piece for fall. Whether you’re having coffee in the morning or going out for drinks at night, a maxi dress is a stylish (and comfortable) go-to.

  3. 3. Turtleneck sweater

    I think I have enough sweaters to wear a new one every day of the month, but that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to buy more this season. Even though it may look like they’re all the same, we all know every sweater is special in their own way, right? Lately, I have been in love with wearing chunky turtlenecks to feel extra cozy during the day. Waking up and throwing on a thick sweater is almost like you never even got out of bed.

  4. 4. Neon scarf

    We don’t have to leave the neon trend in the summer. I’m going to be wearing the bright colors through every season, I don’t care. Adding a vibrant accessory to a neutral fall fit will bring it to life and add some excitement. Neon scarves are a great way to bundle up and look fun!

  5. 5. Leather jacket

    This season I am taking a step back from my trusty denim jacket and adding some edge with a leather one. The sleek, black look will add a whole new level to your jeans and graphic tee this fall. I think every look is elevated when you toss on a leather jacket on top, there’s just something about them that gives a cool-girl element to any fit.
